The following excerpts are from Catholic Culture's Catholic World News:
- The Democratic Party platform for 2012 “strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade, endorses legal recognition of same-sex marriage, and regards the promotion of “gay rights” as an American foreign-policy priority.
- The program approved by the Democratic Party at this week’s convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, no longer says that abortion should be “rare,” as previous party platforms once said. In a blanket statement of support for unrestricted legal abortion, the platform says: “We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”
- The platform adds that the option of abortion should be available to all women “regardless of ability to pay,” underlining Democratic support for taxpayer-financed abortions.
- In a new bid for support from homosexual activists, the platform says: “We support marriage equality and support the movement to secure equal treatment under the law for same sex couples."
