Guest Post: Democrats Embrace Abortion as Core Article of Faith

August 16th, 2008 by Halli

From David Ripley, Idaho Chooses Life

As presidential hopeful Barack Obama prepares for his Denver gala, the finishing touches are being put to his national “change” platform.

During the primary election process Obama made mechanical reference to his vision of “change” – without being particularly specific as to the particulars. He has now decided to flesh out that vision a bit, and a good deal of homage is being paid to his party’s feminist wing.

Obama and his people want even more offensive language affirming their devotion to abortion:

“The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay, and we oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”

This language means abortion has become an essential article of faith for all Democrats. It also means that the party is committed to trampling the conscience of pro-Life Americans by setting a course to establish a national “right” to tax-funding of all abortions.

In a recent story run on LifeNews.Com, editor Steven Ertelt affirms that Democrat operatives added language to the abortion plank promoting increased funding of Planned Parenthood in the hopes of mitigating the impact of their radical agenda for the nation. That strategy seems unlikely to be effective, since most of us realize that Planned Parenthood seeks to sexualize and exploit children at the earliest possible age in order to expand its customer base.

Candidates running under the Democrat label may well find this platform language difficult to explain – especially in places like Idaho. But Obama is clearly more concerned about placating the feminist wing which formed the core of Hillary’s vote in recent primaries.

Perhaps even more challenging for local Democrats will be Obama’s commitment to leading the charge on behalf of the “Freedom of Choice Act” – Planned Parenthood’s strategy for federalizing the abortion issue. According to LifeNews, the basic thrust of this proposed federal law would be to override any and all state restrictions on abortion. That would mean Idaho’s ban on tax funded abortions or our Parental Consent Law would be voided by Congressional fiat.

It seems more than reasonable that local pro-Life activists closely question Democrat candidates running this fall on their allegiance to the national party platform and its presidential candidate.

    It looks to me that the Democratic party supports the right for Choice not anything mandatory, “right to choose” is the language. If the logic to state “This language means abortion has become an essential article of faith for all Democrats” is used for other opinions it means that all in favor the death penalty as a sentencing choice are in favor of death to all accused!I don’t think that is the case at all. This is just another example of a conservative zealot trying to scare Idahoans into thinking that Obama wants to force abortion on everyone. Senator Obama would do that just like Senator McCain would force everyone to adopt an illegal immigrant!
