    One question that has been overlooked. How many USMB Republicans agree with the "Akin Amendment" that is now part of the Republican Party Platform?

    No abortions under any circumstance.

    I'm not going to bother asking why Republicans don't seem to show the same concern for babies. I just want to know if USMB Republicans agree with their parties "platform" and the inclusion of the "Akin Amendment"? And why. I would especially would like to know why.

    I suppose it would be the only consistent view to have if you believe life begins at conception and that life is therefore innocent.

    Well, give conservatives credit for at least being consistent in their effort to destroy the Constitution.

    The flip side is the Obama Abortion Plank for the Democrat Parody Platform:

    There are no exceptions to the right of the pre-born to be slaughtered with or without cause whenever the mother feels like it for any reason or for no reason at all. And to make sure this policy is clear, hospitals shall have the right to place live-born babies (or as the DNC like to call them "failed abortions" on a shelf without medical attention or food or water until they die).

    The DNC: favors slaughtering the innocent as a matter of convenience.

    Well I for one would never use abortion in my family, but i can't speak for others asto why they do it. i support the woman right to have control of her body and what happens in it.
    The GOP has now finally admitted to what they are, extreme right winged people that are out to deny rights to everyone but the sperm and the egg. So now when Mittens is elected you will not even be able to masturbate, if you spill the seed,you can be held with a felong murder rap on record.
    Ih, and God will be prosecuted cause the woman release eggs when menstrating, cause the act kills the citizen egg. I guess we will need social security cards for the unborn issued also, and their birthdays will be 9 months earlier.

    Nonsense.

    What the proposed (and likely to be passed as drafted) RNC platform plank says is:

    -- Full GOP platform statement on abortion – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs

    It actually fails to provide acknowledgement of SOME exceptions -- such as rape and incest and medical necessity -- and I think to that extent it is misguided.

    On the other hand, it beats the living daylights out of shit supported by The ONE such as his steadfast opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

    Banning abortion isnt a violation of the Constitution as the Constitution is completely silent on abortion.

    I wish it was a lie. It's a downright travesty that for as many times as the President voted Present while he was in the IL legislature. The one thing he did vote for was to allow those children to die.
