Publishers Description WHY IS THE PRO LIFE MOVEMENT LINKED EXCLUSIVELY WITH THE REPUBLICAN PARTY? IS IT POSSIBLE THAT PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE GOP ARE NOT ENAMORED WITH THE AGGRESSIVE AGENDA OF THE ABORTION LOBBY?
In a shocking expose, Kristen Day reveals the agenda of the modern Democratic Party leadership, which hijacked the grassroots movement to push through Roe vs. Wade. Drawing from historical background, and her own experience in Washington, Day provides strong evidence that abortion on demand is not the mindset of real America. Discover the truth behind the abortion wars in Washington: Democratic leaders have blocked pro-life voices within the Party, such as the late Gov. Bob Casey. Early leaders like Margaret Sanger pushed radical agendas that impact our culture today. See how the history of the Democratic Party has led to today's high abortion rate. Discover the bipartisan strategy needed to overturn Roe vs. Wade.

Reviews - What do customers think about Democrats for Life: Pro-Life Politics and the Silenced Majority?
Pro-Life Democrats can't see the forest for the trees. Feb 19, 2007
I bought this book because it was touted as a "companion" to David Carlin's book. I must strongly disagree with this recommendation. This book is a literal blizzard of facts--play by play, state by state, year by year (abortionists have hijacked the Democratic party--we get it, OK?!)--with not enough discussion (I suspect this is so that she won't further alienate potential advocates by allowing her liberal views to shine through).
The coup de grace comes in the second-to-last chapter. Her full-fledged support for Casey over Santorum (2006 PA Senate race) shows that she is not above the party politics of which she accuses Republicans...as well as the fact that DFLA is truly willing to cut off its nose to spite its pro-life face.
The reason I gave it two stars (vs. one) is for the mere fact that she is pro-life.
