This week, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops also released a series of videos to encourage Catholics to vote pro-life. The bishops urged voters to make protections for unborn babies a “preeminent priority” at the voting booth this fall.
It’s no secret that the Democrat party supports abortion. In their 2016 platform, they included language supported extreme measures such as: no limits on abortion up to the third trimester and taxpayer-funded abortions. Below is an urgent report from the US Conference of Catholic Bishops posted in Life News and authored by Micaiah Bilger,
Frustration with the Democratic Party’s extreme pro-abortion agenda is growing.
On Wednesday, Rhode Island Catholic Bishop Thomas Tobin joined a crowd of voices in questioning the party’s allegiance to the abortion industry, rather than its own voters, Breitbart reports.
“As the presidential primary shifts to New England, it’s sad to note that all of the major Democratic candidates are pro-abortion, supporting even partial-birth abortion,” Tobin wrote Wednesday on Twitter.
Nearly 1 million unborn babies are aborted every year in America, and Democrat political leaders are pushing for more. All of the top Democratic presidential candidates support abortions without restriction through all nine months of pregnancy and want to force taxpayers to pay for them. Some candidates even have refused to welcome pro-life Democrats into their so-called party of inclusion.
This radical pro-abortion stance is alienating voters, and pro-life leaders who are Democrats have been vocal about their disgust with the party for ignoring Democrat voters’ opinions and advocating for the billion-dollar abortion industry’s agenda instead.
“Where are pro-life Democrats supposed to turn? Or are pro-life voters not welcome in the Democratic party?” Tobin asked Wednesday.
The Democratic Party platform does not even align with moderate voters. In 2012, party leaders removed the word “rare” from the abortion platform, and, in 2016, added language calling for taxpayer-funded abortions. The platform does not support any limits on abortion, even in the third trimester when babies are viable.
Polls consistently show that most Americans, including a large number of Democrats, do not support such extremes. A recent Gallup poll found that 59 percent of Democrats want at least some restrictions on abortion and 29 percent identify as pro-life.
