On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel stated that she doesn’t agree with the Alabama abortion ban’s lack of exceptions.
McDaniel said, “Listen, personally, I would have the exceptions. That’s my personal belief. But we are a party that is a broad tent. … We don’t have a litmus test as to whether you can belong to our party, but we are the party of life. However, we have Senators like Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and governors on different sides of that. Tom Perez, the head of the DNC, has said, if you are pro-life, you cannot be a Democrat, we will not support you.”
McDaniel also criticized “New Day” for not asking Perez about whether he supports abortions on due dates.
