Michael Westfall has an opinion piece at Spero News addressing Democratic leaders' position that "they agree on the 'undesirability of abortion,'" yet their statement is "painfully void of any reference to stopping abortion in the Democrat party’s platform."
Westfall sums up my own feeling exactly when he says: "For these Democratic leaders to loudly proclaim that America must protect its most vulnerable citizens and then from the same mouth declare that they will not vigorously protect America’s totally defenseless unborn children is political double talk. It is sheer hypocrisy."
The "Catholic" (in name only, not practice) Democrats' position couldn't have anything to do with funding from the powerful and heavily funded abortion lobby, could it? During the last election cycle, NARAL Pro-Choice America, Planned Parenthood and Emily’s List, an organization which raises funds for female pro-abortion Democrats, raised a combined $160 million.
