GOP's anti-abortion platform
Original post made by Resident on Aug 21, 2012
" Republicans approved platform language on Tuesday calling for a constitutional amendment outlawing abortion with no explicit exceptions for cases of rape or incest."
"It states that “the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed."
“Faithful to the ‘self-evident' truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed," said the draft platform language approved Tuesday, which was first reported by CNN. “We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment's protections apply to unborn children.""
I will vote against the Romney/Ryan ticket this november. The GOP is obviously not concerned only about the economy. If republicans were serious about fixing the economy, they would leave the nonsense behind, and instead, they continue to focus on their plan to make abortion illegal, to impose their extreme, backwards view on everyone.
