On Thursday, Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, signed a measure into law that would ban abortion in his state once a heartbeat is detectable with no exceptions for rape or incest. This didn’t sit too well with Sen. Cory “Spartacus” Booker, who issued a tweet about “Democratic values.”
“At a time when Republicans across the country are mounting a coordinated, all-out attack on women’s reproductive freedoms, it’s unconscionable that someone in our own party would contribute. Democratic leadership should reflect Democratic values,” he wrote.

In essence, Booker was confirming that killing innocent unborn children is part of what the Democratic Party calls “values.”
Which makes us wonder: How high does the body count have to get to satisfy Booker? How much innocent blood has to be spilled to sate his blood lust?
Maybe he’s just confirming to the world how radical his party really is.
Of course, it’s no surprise that Edwards signed the measure into law, since he’s pro-life.
According to the Associated Press:
When he ran for governor in 2015, Edwards made opposition to abortion a central platform of his campaign. In a TV ad, his wife, Donna, described being advised to have an abortion because of their daughter’s spinal birth defect. The ad showed a grown-up Samantha as Donna Edwards said, “She’s living proof that John Bel Edwards lives his values every day.”
One person told Booker:
Killing babies isn't freedom.

No, it’s not.
Is there room in the Democratic Party for pro-life people?
