#Democrats plotting a purge of #ProLife members

Democrats have a growing problem when it comes to abortion, one that risks alienating some of the largest progressive organizations at a time when the party needs their grassroots energy to revive itself.

Democrats still almost universally agree that a woman should have the right to choose an abortion. But they’re arguing about whether the party should fund Democratic candidates who don’t share that view.

In other words, a purge.

The battle ignited recently when Rep. Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M., who heads the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said the party wouldn’t withhold funding from candidates who don’t share the party’s view on abortion.

Abortion-rights advocates and other progressive groups howled.

California Sen. Dianne Feinstein said she personally would not support anti-abortion-rights candidates. She’s clearly leading the purge.
