Pro-Life Democrats puzzled by DNC pro-abortion platform

.- Just one day after the Democratic National Committee invited the Democrats For Life of America to attend their convention next week, the DNC Platform Standing Committee issued a statement today clearly rejecting all pro-life efforts.

“Because we believe in the privacy and equality of women, we stand proudly for a woman’s right to choose, consistent with Roe v. Wade, and regardless of her ability to pay.  We stand firmly against Republican efforts to undermine that right,” reads page 36 of the platform, which is to be ratified at the convention in Boston.

“The platform committee has confused pro-life Democrats across America,” said Kristen Day, executive director of Democrats For Life of America.

“We are proudly pro-life and proud Democrats. But given that we are 100 percent committed to protecting the rights of the unborn, are we now considered Republicans in the eyes of the Platform Committee?” questioned Day.

Day believes this sentence in the platform document is an oversight of the committee. She hopes the DNC will clarify this language before the Convention begins in Boston next week.
