Keith Ellison: 'Women are dying because we are losing elections'

Source: The Hill



BY MORGAN GSTALTER - 04/16/18 09:49 AM EDT



Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) is urging Democrats to the polls, saying “women are dying” because the left is losing elections.

The Democratic National Committee vice chairman spoke at a progressive training session on Friday and said the party needs to triumph at the ballot box for the sake of women's health.

“Women are dying because we are losing elections,” Ellison said. “We don’t have the right to lose a damn election. We have to win. We have to win.” Maternal morality is rising in states like Missouri and Texas, Ellison said.

The United States has one of the highest rates of maternal deaths among wealthy and developed countries. In 2013, there were 28 maternal deaths per 100,000 births in the United States.

1. Bravo!

We need a tidal wave of people hitting the polls demanding candidates who will work at fixing what's broke with this country. Why this is hard is a mystery to me, but it seems to be.

5. The Dems MUST have the single mess fro the midterms...

affordable health care and they need a plan. The GOP base even likes this so it is a win in both parties.

7. YES

That is why I support reelecting Democrats like Joe Manchin and Claire McCaskill, and electing a relative centrist like Conor Lamb in Trump country. It's why I supported electing Democrat Heath Mello for Mayor in Omaha, although he lost. And it's why I support Independents like Bernie Sanders and Angus King who caucus with Democrats.

We can sort out our difference later. We must wrest power away from the Republican Party or people die.

10. A very stark reality.

How do women's rights alone not make each and every federal election a rout?

14. Not just women.

Gutting Obamacare is also killing men and kids. Lack of gun control is killing everyone.
