Terrisa Bukovinac, a politically progressive atheist, has become widely known in the pro-life movement for working together with conservatives and Christians to protect unborn babies from abortion.
Now, she has plans to unite other left-leaning pro-life advocates under a new organization.
The yet-to-be-named group will bring together “feminists, liberals, bipoc, secularists, lgbtqia folks, their allies, and fetal rights advocates from across the ideological spectrum” in the cause for life, Bukovinac said.
“The unjust killing of the unborn is a violation of our progressive values of equality, nonviolence and nondiscrimination,” she continued.
One of her main goals for the organization is to take back the “radically pro-abortion” Democratic Party, Fox News reports. She pointed to a recent Marist poll that found 58 percent of Democrats support restricting abortion to, at most, the first three months of pregnancy. In contrast, only 27 percent of Democrats align with their party’s platform on the issue, which supports abortions without limits throughout pregnancy.
“The Democratic establishment is completely out of touch with their constituents on the issue of abortion,” Bukovinac said.
On Oct. 1, she and other pro-life progressives plan to announce the name of the new pro-life organization in front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C.
“The so-called ‘Women’s March’ plans to host a pro-abortion demonstration the following day which will be countered by this group and others,” Bukovinac said. “Fetal rights advocates include 21 million Democrats, 12 million secularists, and roughly half of women in our nation, who are demanding the expansion of rights to the unborn members of the community being deliberately killed.”
She said people do not have to believe in the Bible or be conservative to be pro-life. Bukovinac said the pro-life position is supported by science and reason, while the pro-abortion position is “anti-progressive” and discriminatory.
She slammed the Planned Parenthood abortion chain and its racist background, including its founders’ association with the Ku Klux Klan, and called President Joe Biden a “traitor” for abandoning his support of pro-life policies like the Hyde Amendment, according to the report.
“The values of equality, non-violence, and nondiscrimination are incompatible with abortion, and to be truly progressive one must be willing to be actively anti-abortion,” she continued. “The expansion of rights to those who are marginalized is what progress is all about.”
Bukovinac said her new organization will be aggressive in their work to protect unborn babies from the oppressive abortion industry.
