Last week’s Democratic National Convention gave us a glimpse of a party completely wrapped up in love for abortion. We now have the most ardently pro-abortion presidential nominee in Hillary Clinton overseeing the most pro-abortion party platform in history.
As evidence of how much the party loves abortion, we saw on both the main stage and at ancillary events held nearby during the week a cavalcade of speakers extolling the virtue and wonder of the murder of unborn children.
One of the most chilling moments came in a speech by Ilyse Hogue of NARAL who at the mention of her own abortion was cheered by the crowd. Cheered.
Rod Dreher of the American Conservative puts it in context:
Honestly, I can understand perfectly well people who believe that abortion is a necessary evil that must be protected under law. I don’t agree with them, but I can see where they’re coming from. They see abortion as a tragedy.
But people who cheer abortion, and are proud of it? That is morally grotesque. …
And please don’t insult my intelligence by saying that Democrats want abortion to be “safe, legal, and rare.” No party that cheers for abortion wants it to be rare. Hillary Clinton and the party she represents are hardcore abortion extremists. There’s no escaping that.
The implications are chilling and the dividing lines have never been so stark. That’s why the work of Massachusetts Citizens for Life and supporters like you is so important. We must be the collective voice that calls Massachusetts and the United States as a whole back to sanity.
