DNC Rejects Bid to Include Pro-Life Democrats in Abortion Plank

The Democratic National Committee has officially rejected an effort by pro-life Democrats to get the party to include them in its platform that calls for keeping unlimited abortions legal and paid for at taxpayer expense.

Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats For Life of America, says the platform panel refuses to acknowledge any difference of opinion on abortion within the Democratic Party.

“For the good of the Democratic Party, we will continue to advocate that the platform language should reflect the true diversity of views within the Democratic Party,” said Kristen Day, Executive Director of Democrats For Life of America. “Our message is simple: If you are pro-life and a Democrat, you can make a difference, thus the case for recognition. Inclusion can make a critical difference in this fall’s election.”

“If we are going to increase our members and win the majority, we must recognize the contributions of pro-life Democrats within our party and the diverse position of Democrats on the issue of abortion,” said Day.

According to Day, almost one-third of all Democrats self-identify as pro-life. In the 2008 Election, about one-quarter of Obama’s supporters self-identified as pro-life.

    Ah, the good ole’ party of tolerance and inclusion of different ideas (Big Tent) .

    Doesn’t it make you Liberals proud to be SUCH HYPOCRITES?

    Sure it does, sure it does.

    Last I had better hear that played against the GOP. This is bookmarked
    and ready to link in ANY blog I see that has that bullying crap sandwich
    against the GOP.

    And that is a PROMISE!

    Satans demonrats will NEVER give up their baby murdering plank , nor their abnormal perversion sodomist plank . They are called ” DEMONRATS ” because they support ALL evils .

  • What’s not to love about the future of
    a Democratic Party comprised of those who are biological dead ends, those who
    kill off their spawn, and those who’s major problem is their young men killing
    their young men? Hell – Conservatives should be rejoicing! Clearly:

    ·
    CONSERVATIVES CHOOSE LIFE, PROGRESSIVES ABORT –
    WHAT’S THE DOWN SIDE?

    ·
    ABORTION – IT’S CHEAPER THAN WELFARE AND JAIL

    ·
    DEMOCRATS – DO YOU REALLY WANT THEM TO BREED?

    and keep in mind:

    ·
    OBAMA’S MAMA NEVER HAD A CHOICE

    After all, one can
    hardly expect folks as self-important as “progressives” to be willing
    to actually take responsibility for their actions and accept and raise the
    child. OMG think of the inconvenience!

    “Pro-life Democrat” – Would that be the now long extinct Bart Stupak Democrats? The ones who bent down and kissed Mr. Obama’s butt in return for nothing? The ones who are no longer in office?

    After six years of this Administration the one thing known for sure is that all pro-life Democrats are in the cemetery. And not even they vote that way anymore.
