Democrats have become the Party of late-term abortion and infanticide.
If there’s any solace to be found in these developments, it’s that Planned Parenthood’s goals are far out of step with even the Democratic base. According to a recent poll conducted by Marist, only 25 percent of Americans who call themselves pro-choice believe that abortion should be available at any point in a pregnancy. In fact, 42 percent of this demographic think it should be limited to the first trimester, and another 17 percent think it should only be allowed in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. It is only the radicalized politicians who are pushing the abortion-on-demand narrative.To their credit, some Democrats have taken a stand against the new abortion extremism. Rep. Dan Lipinski of Illinois has been a consistent voice against the radical abortion agenda, and as a result has been shunned by his party. Lipinski understands the extremism of his colleagues and works to bring them to a more moderate platform.More Democrats should be focused on representing the values of their constituents rather than the interests of the abortion industry.
