Dems' self-inflicted abortion mess returns

Michael Ahrens - August 1, 2017

Months after a firestorm erupted over DNC Chair Tom Perez’s announcement that all Democrats must be “pro-choice,” Democrats are back to fighting among themselves over whether the party should have a litmus test on abortion. (The drama caused Democrats to lose a closely-watched mayoral race in Omaha back in May.)

Yesterday, DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Luján told The Hill that his committee doesn’t support a litmus test for abortion. And within a matter of hours, former DNC Chair Howard Dean threatened to withhold support for the DCCC, the DNC retweeted a statement from its CEO undercutting the DCCC, and groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood were enraged.

And as The Hill noted, “In taking the position, Luján and Democrats risk alienating liberals, as well as groups dedicated to promoting access to abortion and reproductive health services that represent the core of the party’s base.”
