democratic plank on abortion
Back in 2000, the platform said that Democrats stand “behind the right of every woman to choose, consistent with Roe v. Wade.” However, it also said the “Democratic Party is a party of inclusion. We respect the individual conscience of each American on this difficult issue, and we welcome all our members to participate at every level of our party.”
But things changed. In the 2004 platform, the conscience clause was replaced with a statement that Democrats “stand firmly against Republican efforts to undermine” abortion rights.
Obama will never move to restrict abortion no matter how much he makes his pro-life fans feel understood (that is unless God changes his heart).
