Re: “Can't local Democrats be faithful to their ideals?

As a pro-life woman and a progressive democrat and feminist, I'm elated that a pro-life Democrat has been elected. I have always identified as a democrat because I feel Democrats, more than Republicans, defend the rights of those who are most vulnerable in society. Promoting women's rights, gay rights, and immigrant rights, condemning racism and restrictive social welfare policies, Democrats generally act in a way that promotes every individual's human dignity. However, I have always struggled to understand how the party reconciles these virtues with their support for abortion. There are ways we can promote the dignity and rights of both women and their unborn children. If Baxter is committed to protecting ALL people, regardless of race, sex, or developmental age, he should not be stripped of his identity as a "Democrat." In my opinion, he's fully embracing everything being a Democrat stands for, and possesses the qualities desperately needed in a sheriff. I look forward to seeing the difference he can make in Monroe County.

Re: “Can't local Democrats be faithful to their ideals?

@Gary Pudup, Susan B. Anthony was unambiguously pro-life. Over the summer I conducted extensive research on "The Revolution," the newspaper Susan was the proprietor of and Elizabeth Cady Stanton edited. You can read excerpts from the newspaper that demonstrate her pro-life stance here: https://www.newwavefeminists.com/og-feminism
I'd also recommend contacting Carol Crossed, a Rochester resident who is also the President of the Susan B. Anthony Birthplace Museum that's based in Adams, Massachusetts. Here's the link to their website: http://www.susanbanthonybirthplace.com
