Yesterday, NARAL president Ilyse Hogue told the Democratic Convention that she had an abortion. You can watch her remarks above, but here’s what she said:
…when I found out I was pregnant years ago. I wanted a family, but it was the wrong time. I made the decision that was best for me — to have an abortion and get compassionate care at a clinic in my own community. Now, years later, my husband and I are parents to two incredible children.
After she said that she had an abortion, delegates applauded. They applauded.
The Democratic platform supports the regime of Roe v. Wade, which means that the party believes that it should be legal to take the life of an unborn child at any stage of pregnancy from 0-9 months. About one million unborn children are killed by abortion every year in the United States alone. Since 1973, nearly 60 million unborn children have been killed legally in our country. That is the holocaust times ten.
Abortion-on-demand is the greatest human rights crisis of our time. And this party applauds a testimonial of participation in our great national shame.
