Last week, we shared our plans for the upcoming months.


thermometer-1A generous donor liked what they heard and has offered a $20,000 matching grant for a Communications Campaign from today until November 2nd!  We have reached just over 11 percent of our goal!

Any amount you donate will be doubled! 

Our first project will be to update our website so we can better inform you about our legislative action, our pro-life democratic candidates, our events and other actions items we are undertaking.  The updated web site will also make it easier for our Members to easily engage in social media from the site.

Every dollar you donate will have double the impact!  Please contribute today so we can begin the process to bring a new user friendly website to fruition!

We Are Pro-Life and Democrat

Posted in DFLA General



We believe in the fundamental worth, dignity, and equality of all people.  We believe that the protection of human life is the foundation of human rights, authentic freedom, and good government.  These beliefs animate our opposition to abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, embryonic stem cell research, poverty, genocide, and all other injustices that directly and indirectly threaten human life.


We believe in the core values and principles of the Democratic Party.  We are committed to freedom and justice, security and prosperity, equality and community, and hope and progress.  We are proud to be members of the party that created the New Deal, Fair Deal, and New Frontier.  We share the party’s commitment to the Four Freedoms: freedom of speech and religion, and freedom from fear and want.  We look to continue and perfect the party’s commitment to the most vulnerable members of our society.


We believe in the legal protection of unborn life and a comprehensive approach to reducing the number of abortions in America and around the world.  We believe in supporting women and children and strengthening families and communities.  We believe in the elimination of the death penalty, euthanasia, and embryonic stem cell research, but support the life enhancing promise of adult stem cell research.

In representing pro-life Democrats within the true “big tent” party, DFLA works across a broad spectrum of life ethics. We recognize that people of good faith have different approaches to these issues; therefore, we refuse to use a single issue as a “litmus test” to exclude those who would otherwise seek common ground with us on the expansion of human rights.  We encourage all people committed to the common good to work together to protect human life at all of its stages.

Pro-Life Democrats Speak at Democratic Convention

Posted in DFLA General


At the 2012 Democratic National Convention, Democrats For Life of America (DFLA) showcased Pro-life Democratic leaders in the political, academic, and religious fields who have spent years standing up for pro-life values and continue to fight for life today.

You can read the remarks of the speakers below:

Former Congresswoman Kathy Dahlkemper;

Former Congressman Bart Stupak;

Tom Berg, St. Thomas Law School;

Steve Schneck, policy analyst at Catholic University of America


NOTE: Some media are incorrectly reporting that Congressman Bart Stupak believes that the ACA is illegal.  The reports are false.  The Congressman was referring to the HHS Contraception mandate.  You can read his statement here
