Yes, the Democrats by and large support abortion, which we all know to be a heinous and despicable crime.
But a lot of Republicans, and many of the Republican candidates, are more or less pro-abortion as well.
And eight years under a supposedly pro-life president has done nothing to assuage the abortion rates in this country. I understand a lot of this is due to the Supreme Court, but there is much more that this Administration could do as far as abortion goes.
It's sad all around!
Here is what the most pro-life president that we have had since Roe v Wade (Pres. Bush) has done:
Reinstated the Mexico City policy
Blocked most PUBLIC funding of embryonic stem cell research
Pushed and signed the "Born Alive Infants Protection Act
Pushed and signed the Partial Birth Abortion Ban
Named two strongly prolife Supreme court judges, John Roberts and Samuel Alito.
Discouraged any Congressional attempt to publicly fund cloning.
This is quite an accomplishment and has done more to slow the abortion rate than any other president.
Unfortunately, this congress has not banned human cloning. If private enterprise wants to pursue "Designer Baby" cloning there is nothing to stop them. Of course they would love for the taxpayers to fund it, this is the secret agenda behind embryonic stem cell funding. Read between the lines! Meanwhile they pour billions for failed embryonic stem cell research and underfund the highly successful adult stem cell research. http://www.nrlc.org/Killing_Embryos/helpfightmediamyths.html
