Many of the new Dems are pro-life

Pro-Life Democrats Critical in Retaking the House

New Democratic prolifers in Congress:

Senate: Bob Casey, Pennsylvania. But this was replacing a pro-life Republican with a pro-life Democrat (whose credentials on that score are questionable), so that's not a pro-life gain.

House: Heath Shuler, North Carolina; Joe Donnelly, Indiana; Brad Ellsworth, Indiana; Charlie Wilson, Ohio; Chris Carney, Jason Altmire, Pennsylvania. I'm not sure how many of them were replacing prolifers.

The Democratic party has come a long way since the 1992 Convention, where delegates in favor of Casey's dad got beaten up by the pro-choice delegates while Walter Mondale sat silently by.
