With the curtain closed on the Democratic National Convention,
one pro-lifer is certain about where the party stands on life
Marilyn Musgrave, spokesperson for the Susan B. Anthony
List, says the party's pro-abortion stance was evidenced by the
selection of speakers at the DNC. Two of them were Nancy Keenan of
NARAL and Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards.
"Well, the fact that Cecile Richards was there really speaks to
the extreme position of the party [that's] very evident in
their platform," Musgrave asserts. "Also this reflects her close
relationship with the most pro-abortion president ever."
Upon listening to Richards' speech, the SBA List
spokesperson noticed that the fact that Planned Parenthood
kills more than 300,000 preborn babies each year was missing -- "or
even the word 'abortion,' for that matter."
"Talking about women's health -- abortion is not
healthcare," Musgrave asserts. "Planned Parenthood has gotten by
with this image of providing healthcare. Their money comes in from
abortions -- that's what they're all about."
Richards claimed that several million women would be denied
health services like cancer screenings without Planned Parenthood.
But the fact is those services are available through other sources
that do not do abortions.
Musgrave goes on to stress that the party platform seeks no
restrictions at all on abortion, even late-term and
