A pro-life activist has entered the 2024 Democratic presidential primary. Who would’ve thought that the words Democrat and pro-life would intertwine?
Pro-life activist Terrisa Bukovinac recently announced her bid to run as a Democrat in the 2024 presidential election against President Joe Biden, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and Marianne Williamson. Notably, Bukovinac is the founder of the Progressive Anti-Abortion Uprising (PAAU), a pro-life organization that maintains liberal sentiments on social and political issues.

Bukonivac, unlike Kennedy and Biden, is much less known in the political world. Her presidential bid is not about winning but is instead to bring a “much-needed voice of reason” to the Democratic Party on the issue of abortion, according to the National Review.
“Any FCC TV station must run the ads of any federal candidate uncensored, and through these ads I will expose the human rights atrocities committed in abortion businesses across the country,” Bukovinac explained to the Federalist.
In March 2022, Bukovinac earned herself a spotlight when she and her colleague announced they had found the remains of 115 first-trimester babies and five premature-sized babies outside the Washington Surgi-Clinic in Washington, D.C, as reported by the Federalist. The remains seemed to resemble illegal partial-birth abortions.
Despite the illegality and cruelty of allowing such actions to take place in the clinic, founder and abortionist Cesare Santangelo was never prosecuted. Instead, Bukovinac was criminally investigated.
“The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating the circumstances surrounding the discovery of five fetuses in a residence,” the department told the Daily Signal. “At this time, there is no investigation into the medical provider.”
This signals that the police were not interested in the illegality of dumping babies into trash cans behind an abortion clinic. Instead, they were interested in investigating the pro-lifers who found the babies’ remains, rather than the abortionist responsible for such a vile operation.
Bukovinac’s pro-life stance separates her from her radical party, which has advocated for abortion-on-demand, meaning the ability to abort a baby even after nine months of pregnancy.
“I will not stop until the toxic relationship between the Democratic Party and the abortion industry is broken and those children, and the countless children like them, have justice,” Bukovinac told the Federalist. “A better world is possible, and it starts with us.”
