Pro-life Democrats say abortion issue may cost party more seats in 2018

Democrats' reluctance to recruit pro-life candidates could hinder them as they try to win enough seats to retake the U.S. House next year, according to a pro-life party leader. Kristen Day, executive chairwoman of Democrats for Life of America, said the national party's stance has almost certainly cost it the chance to make a run at the seat that covers Michigan's Upper Peninsula, and said there are likely other places as well where a Democrat would be more competitive if he or she held pro-life views.
