Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker said there is no room in the Democrat Party for pro-lifers and pro-life policies.
“At a time when Republicans across the country are mounting a coordinated, all-out attack on women’s reproductive freedoms, it’s unconscionable that someone in our own party would contribute,” Booker tweeted.
“Democratic leadership should reflect Democratic values,” the New Jersey Senator added.
Booker’s comments were in response to Louisiana Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards’ decision to sign into law legislation which prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.
Edwards is a pro-life Democrat who previously and routinely champions for the life of the unborn, something Louisiana voters are well aware.
The governor had a personal run-in with the idea of abortion as his wife was advised to have an abortion because their unborn daughter had Spina Bifida, a spinal defect.
