New York Democrats turn against SJ Jung over his pro-life, traditional family stances, ‘should be ashamed’ not to support abortion

Community activist and New York State Senate candidate S.J. Jung discovered the angst in the Democratic Party is you are pro-life and support traditional marriage. Jung was attacked by fellow Democrats over the abortion issue, even called an “extremist” who should be “ashamed” of his stance.

Jung’s 16th Senatorial District is 53 percent Asian, and Jung’s contributions to the community made him a leading contender. It was his pro-life, pro-family, open opposition to same-sex “marriage,” and his statement that that pictures of gay couples should not be in elementary public school textbooks, all of which sank the campaign.

Gay City Councilman Daniel Dromm openly ridiculed Jung, saying, “He is ignoring reality. … What is he going to do, continue to deny reality? We’re everywhere.”

Many leading New York women’s groups gathered with Democratic legislators to denounce Jung at a press conference in August.

Democratic Queens Borough President Melinda Katz slammed Jung for seeking “to abolish the most fundamental rights of women to make their own health care decisions.”

Democrat Assemblywoman Nily Rozic said Jung “will betray the women of Queens.”

Democrat City Council Member Karen Koslowitz accused Jung of being “an out of touch extremist” who wants women to go to a sleazy place and have an abortion with a hanger.”

Democrat Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley said “Jung cannot be trusted.”

Democrat Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas said, “Jung should be ashamed of himself.”

Democrat state Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins — the Democratic Conference Leader — called Jung “the last thing that New York needs.”

“The sanctity of human life and the sacredness of marriage should not be considered partisan issues,” New Yorker’s Family Research Foundation Executive Director Rev. Jason J. McGuire told LifeSiteNews. “But sadly, for too many in the modern Democratic Party, life and marriage are issues to be shunned, not celebrated.”

Rev. McGuire rebuked those Democrats who opposed Jung. “Today’s Democrats should remember their social justice roots and embrace the protection of life as the most basic of justice issues,” he said.  “If a candidate wants to truly help working families, then they’ll recognize that children do best when raised by a mother and a father.”

“I applaud people of all parties who recognize timeless truths and take bold stands for them.”

Jung got 42.3 percent of the vote and his opponent in the primary, outspoken pro-abortion incumbent Toby Ann Stavisky, who voted to legalize homosexual “marriage” in New York, received 57.5 percent.
