Why Pulse is non-partisan

Pulse Life Advocates is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to defending the defenseless for the past half century. We’re dedicated to informing, educating, and inspiring a new generation to value the sanctity of all human life from fertilization to natural death.

Pulse is non-partisan because human abortion is such an egregious crime against humanity, that we oppose any politician that supports it, regardless of party affiliation.

By the same token, we support all politicians who support life-affirming legislation, regardless of party affiliation.

Abortion extremists

Sadly, elected Democrats are not just pro-abortion along the lines of their rank-and-file voters, they are abortion extremists.

An example: Katie Hobbs is a Democrat running for governor of Arizona. Asked on a local television show on what limits on abortion she would be willing to accept, Ms. Hobbs said,

“Well, women deserve access to abortion care. Abortion is health care. I’ve been very clear on my position on that throughout my time in the legislature. So if I’m elected governor, that’s what folks are getting. And I will work with the legislature that’s in place to ensure that women have continued access to reproductive health care.”

Notice how she didn’t specifically answer the question on limits. When pressed, she refused to acknowledge support for any limits:

“Abortion is a personal decision between a woman and her family and her doctor. And that’s something that needs to be discussed in the medical exam room, not by politicians.”

Ms. Hobbs stakes out this extremist position on abortion even though 61% of rank and file Democratic voters “want significant restrictions” placed on abortion.

Cindy Axne wants to undo all abortion restrictions in Iowa

In Iowa, Iowa’s Representative from the 3rd congressional district, Democrat Cindy Axne, stakes out equally extremist views on abortion. Ms. Axne voted in favor of the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would codify abortion and strip all regulations away in Iowa, including 20 week limits and parental notification. Said Axne:

“For nearly half a century, a woman’s right to make her own decisions about her body and her reproductive health has been supported by the ruling of our nation’s highest court. Those decisions have been recognized as the law of our land, but recently we have seen a dangerous erosion of that precedent which threatens the health of millions of women. When precedents are no longer enough to protect women’s rights, it’s time for Congress to act. It’s my job as a member of Congress to ensure that these protections are explicit and undeniable by making them clear in federal law.”

Pulse opposes politicians like Hobbs and Axne, regardless of party affiliation, who stake out such extremist views on abortion.

House Republicans affirm their pro-life position

By way of contrast, House Republicans put out a memo proclaiming their vision for a post Roe v Wade world, as reported by National Review:

“Our message is clear. There is dignity and value in every human life from conception to natural death. We will celebrate every opportunity to protect life, share science-backed truth of the humanity of unborn babies, and support unborn babies, mothers, and families in our communities as we fight for a culture of life in the U.S.”

These Republicans know that they are not only on the right side of history, but on the right side of voters:

“By a 2 to 1 margin, Americans want abortion policy to be set by elected leaders, and not unelected judges. 71% of Americans support legal limits on abortion. Only 7% of Millennials share the position of the Democratic Party platform: abortion-on-demand, through all nine months, paid for by taxpayers.”

Pulse’s executive director, Maggie DeWitte, and board president, Tom Quiner, discussed the partisan nature of abortion politics in the video above. Some readers bristle at the mere mention of political affiliation. But remember the definition of politics:

“The art or science of government or governing, especially the governing of a political entity, such as a nation, and the administration and control of its internal and external affairs.”

On this issue of abortion, the Democratic Party has somehow been transformed into an extremist group simply unimaginable at the time of the Roe decision.

Pulse opposes these politicians promoting extremist public policy on abortion, regardless of political affiliation.
