Actress Patricia Heaton questioned Wednesday why any “civilized person” would support the Democratic Party given its “barbaric” stance on abortion.
“I don’t understand why pro-life people want to know if they are ‘welcome’ to join the Democrat party,” Ms. Heaton tweeted to her 427,000 followers. “Why would any civilized person want to support a barbaric platform that champions abortion for any reason through all nine months funded by taxpayers?”
Ms. Heaton, an outspoken conservative, said she walked away from the Democratic Party decades ago because of her pro-life views.
“I was raised a Democrat — protested Vietnam war, supported migrant farm workers etc.,” she wrote. “The minute democrats targeted the [most] vulnerable and voiceless among us, I was out.”
