The Republican Party is adding a human life amendment to its official platform coming out against abortion, at this point, without exception.
“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. 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.”
In the form of a salute the draft also applauds the anti-choice legislation that has been passed by state legislatures including ultrasound bills, mandatory waiting periods, and clinic regulation.
A Romney spokesperson stated Monday, August 20th, 2012, that “a Romney-Ryan administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape.” Ryan who has voted to oppose abortion in instances of rape has agreed to defer to Romney’s position. The Republican platform is still in draft form so we’ll just have to see won’t we.
McCain, who was in favor of abortion in the cases of rape and incest, and wanted to change the wording of the plank was told it would be political suicide probably by the same people who recommended he choose Sarah Palin as his running mate.
No mention this time round has been made of incest so little Peggy it looks like you’re stuck having Uncle Joe’s baby.
Live loud, love fierce, and suffer no fools, Katherine Manaan MAWT
