    The Democrats have a great future economically by selling baby parts.

    In 2009, Hillary got the Margaret Sanger Award from Planned Parenthood. Getting that award is a step toward taking the mark of the beast in my opinion.

    I think that the GOP often uses the Church for its own agenda and churches often, under perhaps a just repulsion for sin in the world, allow politics to influence its views. Sometimes what the Democrat Party does conspicuously can be found within the GOP. I think that the biggest issue for many is when people from the Democratic Party point these things out as they have no room to criticize (perhaps the same is true in reverse as well....and I'm not saying, CTB, that you are a Democrat). It is right to point to the Democrat party as the "party of death." That is a fair statement. It may not justify faults found within the GOP, but it does mean that Democrats have only a social platform (no moral platform at all) upon which to judge. In other words, two wrongs don't make a right. And we should never trust political parties.

    The GOP has had a plank in the party platform since Reagan to amend the constitution to protect the life of the unborn child. Democrats have a pro-choice plank in their platform.

    There is a lot of money being made by abortionists, who are racists. Now the Democrats have found that they can flaunt federal law and sell baby body parts and no problem.

    Crabtown, of course, says that an unborn child is not an unborn child, not a human being, but a fetus (which is a Latin word for unborn child) so Crabtown has the best interests of the Republicans at heart when he tell us that he supports the Democrat platform 100 percent.

    If Planned Parenthood goes on the stock market, the Democrats will make another killing.

    From the quote in Crabbys post:
    GOP's elite (particularly its donor class and its consultant class) tend to be overwhelmingly pro-choice and socially liberal.

    1) Can you name some names
    2) BTW, they would NOT be pro-choice, they would be Pro-abortion.
    Pro-choice means the baby gets to choose if he wants to be aborted.

    Salty, I didn't write the piece. I guess you will have to ask the author of the article who identifies himself as a pro-lifer. He must have people in mind, maybe even people he has talked to and knows personally.

    They might not be pro-choice or pro-abortion but simply do not care as long as their candidate is elected and they profit from that person being in office. Who knows for sure?

    Abortion is a cutting-edge issue for Democrats because of their long history of support for abortion. Hillary got the Margaret Sanger Award in 2009 and gushed her admiration for Margaret Sanger.

    Now Planned Parenthood is selling baby parts contrary to federal law but McConnell and Boehner will not allow anyone to vote against funding for Planned Parenthood.

    What Crabtown confuses is political weakness for political betrayal as Crabtown tries to sow discord among the GOP. There is no discord among the Democrats either for abortion or for selling of baby parts and look for Obama to issue an executive order with his pen and phone to legalize the selling of baby parts.

    After all a dollar is a dollar and Democrats want everybody to have a federal dollar.

    Not quite, but the political result is the same. They know they are going to get the black vote because black voters have no place else to go. Therefore, they can take them for granted.

    Yes, I agree that he is right.

    Do you? Did you read the article?

    His solution is to Tea Party the mushy Republicans that won't stand up against abortion.

    Are you in favor of that?

    Or will you continue to vote for militantly pro abortion Dems that are now in favor of partial birth abortion in order to secure body parts for profit?

    Suddenly the Dems are in favor of profits if they can be made off of murdered babies.

    You looking for John Stewart's job. A real comedian Mr. Crab. At least the Republicans do not celebrate the slaughter of the unborn child as the democrats did at their 2012 convention. The only pro-life legislation passed has been passed by the Republicans and signed by a Republican president or Governor.

    You claim to be a pro-life democrat but that is nonsense. You take ever opportunity to boost the agenda of the pro abortion democrats, that is, a Marxist government!

    Mr. Crab. Do you favor harvesting the body parts of slaughtered children?

    They do have a place to go but the democrat party has done a superb job in reinvigorating the plantation mentality in the black populace it is doubtful they would switch even if Ben Carson were the nominee. Justice Clarence Thomas has been viciously attacked by the leftist democrats because he doesn't taodie to them.

    The Republicans talk a good anti-abortion line (different than pro life in general) but have never done anything about it because that would remove their Christian Right (actually neither Christian nor right) base. It's all a political scheme.
