PRESIDENT INFANTICIDE: DEM ABORTION PLATFORM DOES NOT EXCLUDE PARTIAL-BIRTH ABORTION
President Clinton believed abortion should be "safe, rare; and legal." But Clinton also believed in a work requirement in his welfare reform bill.
President Obama apparently disagrees on both counts.
After unilaterally allowing states to waive the central pillar of the landmark and bipartisan 1996 welfare reform act -- the work requirement -- Obama has also proven himself to be a wild-eyed extremist on the issue of abortion and way out of step with at least two-thirds of the American people. And his convention platform backs this extremism up.
In 2008, the Democrat Party platform on abortion read this way:
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.
