The Democrats and Abortion

Well the democratic party is making their views on women very clear.

I was shocked to learn that Nancy Keenan, the president of NARAL ProChoice American spoke at the convention last night.''

NARAL!!! (The National Abortion Rights Action League).  NARAL supports abortion on demand for all nine months of pregnancy.  Yes, all nine months!  I wonder if everyone realizes that the democratic party holds the same position.

One of the founders of NARAL, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, was an abortionist who had presided over more than 60,000 abortions.  He later repented and became a pro-life activist.  Dr. Nathanson was the maker of the pro-life film The Silent Scream which depicted an ultrasound view of a baby being aborted as its mouth opened into a "silent scream."  You can watch the video here.

I'm sorry.  I was horrified that the democratic party would give a microphone to the president of NARAL.  Then I realized that to do so is very consistent with the positions of the democratic party.

Is it any wonder that they have also removed the word "God" from their platform?  Read about it here.  I have heard several interviews of democrats this morning and none of them will answer the question as to why this was done.

I find it curious that the democrats continue to talk about abortion and artificial birth control as though the two issues were synonymous with health care for women.  Is not this attitude profoundly sexist?  If health care is all about a woman's sexual behavior what are we to assume about women?  That their sexuality defines them?  That their purpose and value is intimately intertwined with their sexuality?  I find that attitude deeply offensive.  Is it any wonder that Obama's numbers with women voters have experienced a sharp decline?

I wasn't able to link to the video - but on second thought I am not sure my heart could handle it.
