Pro-Life Democrats Set to Challenge Abortion Plank at Dem Convention
Pro-life Democrats will continue their efforts to get the party to ease up on its abortion-at-any-cost plank that has been a prominent part of its platform for many years. As reported by LifeNews.com, officials with the Democratic National Committee rejected efforts by a group calling itself Democrats for Life of America (DFLA) to persuade the party to consider a less aggressive stance on the issue. â€śKristen Day, executive director of Democrats For Life of America, says the platform panel refuses to acknowledge any difference of opinion on abortion within the Democratic Party,â€ť reported the pro-life news site.
â€śFor the good of the Democratic Party, we will continue to advocate that the platform language should reflect the true diversity of views within the Democratic Party,â€ť said Kristen Day (pictured, above right), executive director of the DFLA. â€śOur message is simple: If you are pro-life and a...

The quote "pro-life Democrats" have had very little effect thus far - so some of us would seek the alternative politics. Sound judgment!!
And what happens when the only "Christian" party is taken over by an extremist group incompatible with Christianity. Whither democracy?
To seek to stifle a Christian voice outside of your own "Christian" party is stupid and partisan.
Get real, by your own standards your own party has failed to deliver. Be consistent and repudiate that party.

Also those who stay home because there are no Christians running will be voting for Obama.

There really isn't a strong third party candidate this time, but Clinton's second term shows that a strong third party candidate can't win the election, but he can spoil the election for someone else. I'm going to hold my nose, send in my absentee vote for Romney and hope for the best. If Romney wins I'll come back to the States, if not it's going to be another long four years overseas for me.
My, John Y., "Never say, never." But it would be good if these Democrats not only attack the abortion stand of their leadership, but also queer unions. Considering how North Carolina feels and has voted upon that, I would assume there are going to be some protests outside the convention hall about that, if not inside it.

Correct. I decided in 2010 that I was going to switch political affiliation from Democrat to Republican because I decided that it was not possible to be Pro Life and remain a registerd Democrat. I voted straight Republican in 2010 and this year I am going to become a registered Republican and vote straight Republican again. I am going to remain a Republican the rest of my life.
