DFL Party is not pro-life

To the editor: 

Governor Dayton and the DFL party continue to support abortion in their platform and their actions. Several pro-life bills were sent to Gov. Dayton (Fetal Pain bill, RU-486 bill and health inspections of abortion  clinics). Dayton vetoed all three. Clearly, a DFL House majority isn’t a step-forward towards eliminating abortions; it’s a step backward for unborn children.

For a DFL candidate to be a pro-life representative, he’ll need to work closely with GOP members who continue to be champions of pro-life issues. He’ll need to reject DFL leadership who support abortion and vote for GOP leadership that’s committed to eliminating abortions. While it’s important to be pro-life in spirit and in a questionnaire, it’s equally important to be pro-life in action and legislation. Is the DFL endorsed candidate willing to abandon the DFL platform on this issue and work closely with the GOP?

On Nov. 6, I’m voting for Ron Kresha for 9B and his consistent stance and support for pro-life issues.
