The Party Platforms on Life Issues

The political parties have completed their conventions and also finalized their party platforms. The Democrats and Republicans couldn’t be more polar opposites when it comes to the life issues. Let’s look at them—not in an effort to endorse any particular party or candidate, but to become educated citizens. The Democrat platform says it “strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy including safe and legal abortion.” The Republican platform reads, “We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the 14th Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.” To read all of what each party has to say on the life issues, visit today’s broadcast link at life issues dot org.
