The Pro-Life Voice Within the Democratic Party
NEW DATE: March for Life (1-27-2017)
Due to the Inauguration, the March for Life in D.C. has been pushed back one week to January 27, 2017.
We are planning to convene for breakfast at 8:30 a.m. and march as a group to the Supreme Court. Please save the date and plan on joining us if you are coming to Washington, D.C. We will have more information to follow.
We will also have a group and a meeting place at the Walk for Life West Coast in San Francisco, CA, and the Choose Love Pro-Life demonstration in Los Angelos, CA, both on January 21, 2017.
The Walk for Life's goal is "to change the perceptions of a society that thinks abortion is an answer. Abortion does violence to women and to their children, both physically and emotionally." The want people to know that we all "deserve better than abortion."
The Choose Love event celebrates the beauty and dignity of every human life from conception to natural death. At the walk in downtown LA there will be music, speakers and food.
If you would like to help coordinate our activities around the March for Life, please contact Kristen Day.

Our Michigan Chapter made  a valient effort to modifiy their State Party platform. They are continuing the good fight to preach inclusion for those who believe support for pregnant women -as contrasted with paying for their abortions - should be our main focus.
John O'Neill, who is a candidate for County Commission, had the following published in the Leelanau News.
To the Editor,
"A Pro-life Democrat, I value a healthy society: decent jobs, robust business climate, equitable pay, homes workers can afford, care for the earth. I prompted local Democrats to declare: “We respect the conscience of each American and recognize that members of our party have deeply held and sometimes differing positions on issues of personal conscience, such as abortion and the death penalty. We recognize the diversity of views as a
source of strength, and we welcome into our ranks all Americans who may
hold differing positions on these and other issues.” I will bring such values
to the commission.

DFLA Conference in Philadelphia
We had such a great time last year in New Orleans for our State Chapter leadership conference, we decided to do it again in the city of brotherly love, which is also home to the Philly Cheese steak and the liberty bell.
Our Pennsylvania Chapter is coordinating the efforts and would certainly appreciate your help as a lot of work goes into planning a conference. We need to line up speakers, find the venue, plan meals, send out invitations and many other duties. Contact Christian Matazzo if you can or would like to assist in this important effort. 
Additionally, if there are speakers or issues you would like included, please let us know!
Please save the weekend of April 1, 2017 (back up is the weekend of April 8, 2017) to come together to promote a consistent and whole life America.
Making All Lives Matter

Bitter political and social conflicts may not be new, but we may be seeing unprecedented levels of vitriol because of the ability of anonymous angry people to take their attitudes to extreme positions online.  Even people posting in their own name find new courage to level cruel broadsides because they can find an enthusiastic echo chamber to “like” and pass along everything they say.  So where do people of modest temperament find space to reflect on and calmly discuss public policy?  For many of us, it is not in our preferred political party.

DLF of Colorado is looking for help to defeat Prop 106. Please read more below from Denise.
Dear Members of Democrats For Life Of America,
If you know someone in Colorado make sure they receive the link that highlights a recent opinion piece against Prop 106, in The Denver Post.
What is Prop 106?  It is a poorly written measure that allows physicians to assist in the suicide of terminally ill patients.  Aside from the obvious threat to the sanctity of human life, this proposal has no oversight and leaves those who fall prey to the proponents of this kind of killing alone and unsupported.
Prop 106 is dangerous in every way imaginable.  Vote NO on Prop 106!
Denise Archuleta
Coordinator, DFL of Colorado

Democrats For Life of America
July, 2016
Dear Friend,
We are overwhelmed and excited about the number of people who have reached out and joined us in our effort to promote a consistent ethic of protecting all life.  Since the convention, we have been really busy trying to respond to all the requests and interest in getting involved. Please be patient if you contacted us; we will respond to every request!
In the meantime, we wanted to share some of the additional press we received during and after the Democratic National Convention.
Some of the articles do a great job highlighting the need for more Pro-Life Democrats. Others rightly point out the very difficult, uphill battle we’re facing.
As we’ve said before, we have a lot to be optimistic about. But, we have to remain strong, we have to remain consistent, and we have to keep fighting. Our numbers are growing, and we’re receiving more and more requests for information on the website. Our message resonates with the American people. Don’t let anyone tell you that our efforts are worthless.
Finally, we existed due to the generosity of our donors. If you would consider a $5, $10 or $50 donation, we would greatly appreciate your support. Click here to make a contribution.
