In case you had any lingering doubts about the indecency of hardened Democrats when it comes to the matter of protecting life…
At the Democratic National Convention this past week, featured speakers included Ilyse Hogue, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, one of the leading pro-abortion groups in the United States.
By the way, before we proceed, it’s worth noting that NARAL Pro-Choice America used to be known simply as NARAL, which stands for “National Abortion Rights Action League.” However, in the interest of trying to further hide the word “abortion” while simultaneously being a pro-abortion outfit, NARAL figured it could rename itself in a way that would make it harder for anyone to actually find the word “abortion” in its name.
When Ms. Hogue took the stage in Philadelphia, she did something that we are seeing more of from the pro-abortion crowd: she spoke about her own abortion in a way that portrayed it as a badge of honor…and, judging from the reaction of the crowd, that is precisely how it was received.
Said Hogue, in part, “To succeed in life, all we need are the tools, the trust, and the chance to chart our own path. I was fortunate enough to have these things 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.”
Hogue’s comments here were received warmly, with cheers and applause. Apparently, not many (no one?) in the convention crowd found it ghoulish that Hogue counts baby-killing as a “tool” by which to “succeed in life.”
And there you have it.
