Rep. Heath Shuler spoke with me about the Democratic platform on abortion for about 40 seconds after the Democrats for Life Forum.
Shuler is a pro-life Democrat and a new Congressman from North Carolina.
"Obviously reducing the number is very important. There are other issues that I have a lot of difficulty with.
But I think with the panel we have today, and what I feel the influence of the blue dog members – Lincoln Davis and Bob Casey – we can strengthen that.
My hope is to say that within the platform of the Democratic Party, there is diversity and that we do have people who are pro-life."
