Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders suggested Saturday there is no room for pro-lifers in the Democratic Party, calling the pro-choice position a “central part” of being a Democrat.
Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont who is running for the Democratic nomination, was asked in a forum, “Is there such a thing as a pro-life Democrat in your vision of the party?”
“I think being pro-choice,” Sanders responded, “is an absolutely essential part of being a Democrat. … In the Senate, probably 95 percent of the Democrats are pro-choice. You have a few who are not in the House [but it] may be even a higher percentage.”
He added, “By this time in history, I think when we talk about what a Democrat is, I think being pro-choice is … a central part of that.”

Sanders made the comments in an “Our Rights, Our Courts” forum sponsored by several abortion rights groups, including the Center for Reproductive Rights and NARAL Pro-Choice America.
The previous day, Sanders pledged to nominate only justices who support abortion rights if he is elected president.
