This Pro-Life Democrat Should Be The Next Speaker Of The House
After winning the U.S. House of Representatives, the Democrats now have to pick the next Speaker of the House. There is a battle between establishment Democrats who want former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to be the Speaker again and liberal, and often younger, Representatives who want new leadership. Apparently even Nancy Pelosi, who loves Planned Parenthood and abortion and raising taxes, is not left enough for some Representatives.
But, maybe instead of pushing someone who is radically pro-abortion, Democrats should vote for pro-life Dan Lipinski to be their next speaker of the House. Lipinski is one of the last remaining pro-life Democrats in Congress (the jury is still out on Senator Manchin) and voting for Lipinski could be an olive branch to Republicans and would show an interest in bipartisanship.
After all, several pro-choice, socially liberal Democrats like Senator Heitkamp and Senator McCaskill lost their Senate seats after siding with pro-choice extremists against Judge Kavanaugh. Senator Joe Donnelly (jury is still out on him as well) also lost his Senate seat after being only marginally pro-life.
Representative Lipinski, much like his father Bill Lipinski represents the endangered Blue Dog Democrats. In fact, NARAL, Planned Parenthood, and the abortion lobby explicitly have been targeting pro-life Democrats, though they came up short in trying to beat Lipinski in the primary. Lipinski should be proud of his steadfastness in staying committed to ending abortion and he would be a great Speaker of the House for the pro-life movement at least.
