Democrats pass the most pro-abortion platform in history
CHARLOTTE, September 6, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Critics say the 2012 Democratic Party platform is the most anti-life document the party has accepted to date.
The Democratic Party platform, which delegates formally accepted on Tuesday, recognizes a woman’s right to obtain “a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay” – an endorsement of taxpayer-funded abortions.
“What we’re seeing is the abortion lobby taking over an entire political party,” said Elizabeth Graham, director of Texas Right to Life. “The Democratic National Committee’s revised platform calls for unrestricted abortion on demand, at any time during pregnancy, and on the taxpayer’s dime. That’s been the abortion lobby’s goal all along.”
Recent polls show 72 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer-funded abortion, a position once shared by such Democrats as Al Gore and Wednesday night’s speaker, Bill Clinton.
A growing number of observers state Barack Obama has decided to run on controversial social issues to avoid talking about the poor state of the economy and the ballooning national deficit, which hit $16 trillion this week. Polls show Obama enjoys a lead among unmarried women, as most Democrats in recent elections have.
“The platform mentions abortion more times (four) than unemployment (three),” notes The Washington Examiner in an editorial. “It mentions ‘gay’/‘LGBT’ more times (six) than debt (five). It also mentions four times that President Obama killed Osama bin Laden.”
