4. we don't tolerate those views in dem party

we respect woman’s right to privacy with her doctor. Those people are not pro-life, they are pro-birth; there is a huge difference. We are the party who seeks reduction in pregnancy terminations by expanding sex education, access to contraceptives, universal healthcare, etc.
To any pro-birth members on DU (if they exist), I would say this: those people won’t stop at banning abortion, they will seek to restrict access to contraception and continue on a path making women unequal. This fight was never about life, it is about womens role in society. If men could get pregnant, this would never become an issue or even a discussion.
Also, the moment those people are able to swing RW justices to their side, would mean that a woman who is unable to get safe abortion in the US must travel to Canada to do that; she would be a subject to manslaughter charges upon return.

USSR at one point expermented with banning abortion after WWII when they needed to boost births. The result was - huge countrywide infertility problems due to massive number of unsafe abortions. Even in today’s authoritarian russia, abortion remains legal and I think it is for that reason (history).
