Democracy for America today is aiming at Michigan Democrat Bart Stupak in an e-mail, ridiculously but unsurprisingly accusing him of having pushed an amendment that “could have sent America back to an era of coat hangers and back alley abortions.” The e-mail also hypes his pro-choice primary challenger.
No doubt the e-mail is meant to be a warning to those Democrats who may want to walk his way when the House votes on health-care reform this week.
Democrats don’t have a good track record with tolerance when it comes to pro-lifers who actually live by the label. Which is why if you’re grateful to Bart Stupak, you may want to send him a word of thanks. I’m sure he’s hearing a whole lot of something else right about now.
