It's a fine line. Being so upfront is disasterous these days. The Republicans, for example, are for everything. They write in their platform they're
against all forms of abortion including rape and incest, then they don't do anything about it or say that in public.
Democrats are for choice. Plain and simple. Well not that simple, as they are officially morally opposed to abortion but recognize their morals have
nothing to do with the governance of medical privacy. They also understand the tie in to sex education and preventative issues which is why abortions
go down under Democratic leadership and up under Republicans.
Yup. Less abortions under Clinton, more under Bush. You get what you vote for. Or don't rather. That's generally what happens when you don't talk
about something or spread misinformation like compassionate conservatives do.
The only change I'd consider in the DNC platform is disallowing for Health and Human services to fund any part of an abortion procedure. Not because
that would be the right thing to do, but because it's the one bug-a-boo that hurts the Dems on the issue. Ironically, welfare will go way up...but
you can't have everything.
The majority of Americans are pro-choice in some shape form or fashion. An overwhelming majority are specifically for it in cases in of incest, rape
and to save the life of the mother, which officially the RNC is NOT making them painfully in the minority.
Changing platforms to represent the minority would be stupid. All they need to do is lie better. Like Republicans. Or tell the truth better. Depends
on how you look at it.
I try not to. Just let the Republicans do whatever they want for four years. Criminalize abortion, birth control...start arresting teen girls and
charging Doctors with murder. It's all coming. Then politics will get really fun.
Before it's all over, Republicans will be adopting Democratic platforms to get elected.
