I know and agree that there are moral, ethical, and, perhaps, legal questions that should be asked about that, but then again, it is awful nice to see a “party leader” put their money where their mouth is.
Mark Haugen, the Democratic-NPL candidate for North Dakota's at-large U.S. House seat, feels it's important to remember that pro-life Democrats are a part of the party. "Are we the minority? Absolutely. But that's democracy," he said. "I have to work hard at explaining my position."
We're seeing a lot of partisanship in the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling. The Democratic-NPL is using words like "vile" and "evil" to describe it. Yet, without elected members of the Democratic-NPL, North Dakota's abortion ban might not exist.
In congressional and local races across the United States, Republicans have seized upon calls by progressives to reduce police department budgets and other liberal criminal justice policies to paint almost all Democratic candidates as lenient on crime.

A Republican House would be enough to derail most legislation President Joe Biden and his fellow Democrats want to enact, as well as likely spurring a wave of new congressional probes of the administration.
There has been a lot of talk about how the Democratic-NPL is at low-ebb, but looking at how things stand for them heading into the 2022 campaign season, it seems very possible, and even likely, that things can get worse for them.
