Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski lost to far-left progressive Marie Newman during the Democrat Primary in Illinois 3rd District.
I’ve seen enough: progressive Marie Newman (D) defeats pro-life, eight-term Rep. Dan Lipinski (D) in #IL03.

He was the last Pro-life Democrat:
There goes the last pro-life Democrat at the national level. If it weren’t already extremely obvious, this is yet another sign that the Democratic Party’s national leaders are unapologetically in lockstep defending abortion for any reason, at any stage of pregnancy until birth. https://t.co/YrW0BLVhWc

However, it is disputed just how pro-life Lipinski truly was, or whether his membership in Congress was a net positive for the pro-life cause.
Lipinski’s voting record has mixed scores on abortion but generally averages above 50% from pro-life groups and below 50% from pro-abortion ones. He supports requiring doctors to provide live-saving treatment to newborns who survive abortion, but also voted for the so-called Equality Act, a broad pro-LGBT bill whose provisions would have also imperiled the rights of health workers who object to participating in abortion. On February 13, 2020, he voted in favor of the Equal Rights Amendment, which if enacted would essentially enshrine abortion into the U.S. Constitution.
If it wasn’t already offical it is now. The Democrats are the party of abortion. It is a simple fact that you can’t be a Democrat and be Pro-Life. Is there a single issue in the Republican Party where Republians are this unified on?
