Democrats ‘Champion’ Planned Parenthood in Party Platform, Vow to Fight ‘Discriminatory’ State Laws

DemsThe Democratic Party has announced that it is “championing” the abortion giant Planned Parenthood in its party platform this year, which also expresses its intent to fight state laws that it deems discriminatory toward homosexual and transgender citizens.

“The platform goes further than previous Democratic platforms on women’s reproductive rights. It champions Planned Parenthood health centers and commits to push back on all Republican efforts to defund it,” party representatives wrote in a press release on Tuesday.

“The platform also vows to oppose, and seek to overturn, all federal and state laws that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment,” which prevents taxpayer funding from being used for abortion.

The platform, which was released on July 1 and covers a variety of issues from social security to gun violence prevention to terrorism, also expresses the party’s support for repealing the Global Gag Rule and the Helms Amendment, which ban U.S. capital from being used to fund overseas abortions.

“We believe unequivocally that every woman should have access to quality reproductive health care services, including safe and legal abortion—regardless of where she lives, how much money she makes, or how she is insured,” the advanced text reads in part.

“We believe that reproductive health is core to women’s, men’s, and young people’s health and well-being. We will continue to stand up to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood health centers, which provide critical health services to millions of people,” it says.

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards applauded the party’s inclusion of the organization in its platform, remarking in a statement that “[f]or the first time ever, the Democratic party has recognized that comprehensive reproductive healthcare—including safe, legal abortion—is central to its platform.”

“We also applaud the platform for affirming Planned Parenthood’s critical role in communities in the face of unprecedented attacks on reproductive health at the state and congressional levels, and the recognition that reproductive healthcare is core healthcare for women, men and young people,” she said.

In addition to including unprecedented language in support for abortion and Planned Parenthood, Democrats also call for efforts to oppose state laws that they deem discriminatory against homosexuals.

“Democrats applaud last year’s decision by the Supreme Court that recognized LGBT people—like every other American—have the right to marry the person they love. But there is still much work to be done,” the platform reads.

“Democrats will fight for comprehensive federal nondiscrimination protections for all LGBT Americans and push back against state efforts to discriminate against LGBT individuals,” it outlines. “We will promote LGBT human rights and ensure America’s foreign policy is inclusive of LGBT people around the world.”

The platform will officially be ratified later this month at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

As previously reported, during the 2012 convention, delegates voted to remove any mention of God from the party platform. This year, amid expressing support for homosexuality and abortion, God is mentioned three times.

“Democrats believe that everyone in America deserves the chance to live up to their God-given potential,” one of the instances reads.

    “Democrats ‘Champion’ Planned Parenthood in Party Platform, Vow to Fight ‘Discriminatory’ State Laws”

    Just not against the laws that discriminate against children being born and the “right to life, liberty and the pursuit of property” ………………….

    • Jalapeno

      How is it discrimination? Everyone has the exact same right to someone else’s body.

      • Amos Moses

        Except the child that was executed in the womb ……………..

        • Jalapeno

          How is that discrimination? No one, whether they are a fetus or an adult, have irrevocable access to another persons body.

          • Amos Moses

            Sorry ………. error ………… it is done all the time …………. in the legal system ……….. so if a child is 6 months old ……….. and its mother decides not to feed it ……… at all ……. then you are cool with that ……….

          • Jalapeno

            That is illegal.

            Abortion is not.

            How is it discrimination if everyone gets the same claim to someone else’s body?

          • Amos Moses

            Murder is always illegal …………. even if men say it is not …………

          • Jalapeno

            Yes. Murder is, by definition, illegal.

            Sure though, giving someone equal treatment is obviously discrimination. Good call.

          • Amos Moses

            Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

            Mark 9:42 And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

            Luke 17:2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

          • Jalapeno

            Okay. Don’t answer, no skin off my back.

          • Madeleine Bryant-Kambe

            His comments were far more accurate and insightful. God created the baby in the womb….and He did with you too.

          • Jalapeno

            Last I checked..it was the meeting of a sperm and an egg.

          • Madeleine Bryant-Kambe

            He did.
            Read it and think about it.

          • Amos Moses

            And a child in the womb is not entitled to that same treatment …….. sure ………. good call …..

          • Jalapeno

            Did you think that if an adult needed someone else’s body to live, they’d be entitled to it?

          • Amos Moses

            Do you think that the size, location, environment, or the degree of dependence gives you the right to end a life …….

          • Jalapeno

            Ignoring the point?

            Do you think that if an adult was dependent on someone elses body, whether it’s from blood donations or a full organ transplant, they would be entitled to it?

          • Amos Moses

            No ……….. you are saying that if the victim ……….. is of the proper size, location, environment, or the degree of dependence ……. it gives you the right to end a life ……………..

          • Jalapeno

            Not quite.

            If an adult is dependent on someone elses body to survive, are they entitled to it?

            No?

            Okay..then why is it discrimination?

          • Amos Moses

            A child ………… is by definition ………… DEPENDENT ON ADULTS ……….. so you want to say they should be discriminated against …….. LETHALLY ………. in the womb ………. due to size, location, their environment or degree of dependence ………

          • Jalapeno

            So..you think it’s discrimination because they don’t get special treatment and special rights that no one else has.

          • Amos Moses

            They have the same right as everyone ………. to life ……. and while that is special ……. it is special for everyone ………

          • Jalapeno

            Sure. They have the same right to keep themselves alive on someone elses body as I do.

          • Amos Moses

            They are children ………. they have a right to not be killed ……… and their parents have a responsibility to care for them …….. but it seems to me you think a two year old can be left to their own devices and to fend for themselves ….. is that right ………

          • Jalapeno

            Would it make you feel better if we removed them from the uterus whole and let them suffocate?

          • Amos Moses

            Is it okay if we do that to you ,,,,,,,,, now …. with your size, or location, or degree of dependence, or your environment? ………….. why? …………. or why not? ………

          • Jalapeno

            Yes, it’s okay if you refuse to let me keep myself alive on someone elses body. I can breathe on my own.

            You didn’t answer the question. Would it make you feel better if we let them suffocate?

          • Amos Moses

            So why would that be okay? ………….. Why would anyone have the right to end anothers life …………… because they said so ? What does dependence have to do with the value a person has? IF your grandmother is still alive……. but dependent on others …… why is it okay to end her life ……. just because?

          • Jalapeno

            You’re saying that it’s not okay to actively kill the fetus.

            So..it should be more okay if we simply let them die on their own, right?

            “What does dependence have to do with the value a person has? ”

            It doesn’t. Nobody, no matter how much “value” they have, is entitled to another persons body.

          • Amos Moses

            No ……….. i am asking some why questions that really should be answered …..

          • Jalapeno

            “Why would anyone have the right to end anothers life”

            People have the right to refuse to keep someone else alive with their own body.

            “What does dependence have to do with the value a person has?”

            It doesn’t.

            “why is it okay to end her life”

            It’s not.

            So..since the actual active act of killing the fetus before removing it from the womans body isn’t the problem, try switching your thinking to “why is it okay to not let the fetus live in the womans body” for a while.

          • Amos Moses

            “People have the right to refuse to keep someone else alive with their own body.”

            Why …………. if anyone is on welfare and they have no job ……….. they are dependent of the labor ….. the sweat and work of anothers body …………. someones body not their own ………. we can kill them …………… because they are dependent? ……………. why?

          • Jalapeno

            Needing food and needing another persons body are not the same thing.

            We let people die all the time because someone else doesn’t want to give up their organs.

          • Amos Moses

            No ………. they need the other person body ……….. to work for them …… so that they get food …. so they require another persons body to do that ………. and they are not producing on their own ……….. so what? We have the right to kill them ? This is all sounding very familiar……. where have i heard this before …..

          • Jalapeno

            So..you think that welfare is legally equivalent to taking blood out of a persons body to keep yourself alive?

          • Amos Moses

            There is no passing of blood between the mother and child ……. when it does happen …… one or the other usually dies due to Rh and other blood incompatibility ………….. and it does not answer the question ……….

            The size, location, environment or degree of dependence …….. you are saying that a person can be eliminated if they do not measure up to ………… whomever …… and decides they do not meet the standard for a right to live ……….. again ,,,,,,,, very familiar ideas here ….. i have heard it before in history ….. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ……….

          • Jalapeno

            Do you understand what bodily autonomy is?

          • Amos Moses

            Do you understand that for the most part people choose to have sex and that there are consequences to that act ………. including pregnancy? ……. do you understand that taking a life is murder? …… do you understand that no matter the size, location, environment or degree or dependency ……. you have no right to take a life? …………….. do you know what the definition of RESPONSIBILITY is?

          • Jalapeno

            Do you know what bodily autonomy is?

          • Amos Moses

            Does not matter …………… irrelevant ………… a child is a RESPONSIBILITY …… NOT CHATTEL …………

          • Jalapeno

            So.. You don’t know where it is?

          • Amos Moses

            Where what is ………….. do you know what you are talking about ……..

          • Jalapeno

            Yes.

            I’m asking if you know what bodily autonomy is.

          • Amos Moses

            And i have asked several question that you cannot or refuse to answer as it does not fit with your agenda ………….. we have no “autonomy” when we commit certain acts ………. and NONE of them confer a right to snuff out another life that was created in the process………. people voluntarily give up rights everyday ……….. nothing new here ……… create a life ………. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY ……………

          • Jalapeno

            What question do you think I refused?
            Do you know what bodily autonomy is?

          • Madeleine Bryant-Kambe

            But you are not tearing mama’s arms and legs off with the vacuum, or punching a hole in her skull, then sucking his brains out until his skull collapses, or burning him from the inside out with saline solution.

          • Jalapeno

            Would it make you feel better if we removed the fetus whole and let them suffocate?

  • meamsane

    “Democrats believe that everyone in America deserves the chance to live up to their God-given potential,” one of the instances reads.

    Considering that this article states that “The platform also vows to oppose, and seek to overturn, all federal and state laws that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment,” which prevents taxpayer funding from being used for abortion” which would seem to exclude the God-given potential of the unborn?

  • WorldGoneCrazy

    The Democratic Party has become even more extremist on abortion than before.

    Who would have thought it possible? There certainly was not much room for them to become more pro-abortion.

    Perhaps they will perform a live abortion at this year’s convention to celebrate their new “I Baby Killing” platform?

    Clearly, it is impossible, on orthodoxy and orthopraxy, for an authentic Christian to simultaneously follow the Lord of Life and Light while voting for a Democrat who clearly serves the devil of death and darkness.

    • Jalapeno

      How is it more extremist? The fact that it has to be brought up more because people are trying to get clinics shut down? The fact that they need to continue pushing for Planned Parenthood to be able to use Title X funding?

      • WorldGoneCrazy

        You just answered your own question.

        But, you lack the self-awareness to realize it. 🙂

        • Jalapeno

          Trying to maintain the access that women have had is “extremist”?

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            If you do not believe the platform has moved more extremist in a pro-abortion sense, you are free to delude yourself. But, even the drafters consider it to be such:

            “The platform goes further than previous Democratic platforms on women’s reproductive rights.”

            I’m sure you are aware that “reproductive rights” is code for “knocking off babies in the womb.”

            Perhaps you should actually READ the article next time. You would save us all a little time.

          • Jalapeno

            I did. It’s not difficult.

            It seems to me that it’s only going further beacsuse the law needs to be specific about maintaining the same access that women have already had.

            How is that “extremist”?

            Is trying to keep clinics from being shut down extreme? Is maintaining Title X extreme?

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Now you are just trolling.

            Asked and answered.

            You are dismissed.

          • Jalapeno

            So..you think that making sure that the clinics don’t get shut down is extremist?

            Interesting.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Take it up with your party gods.

            You are dismissed.

          • Jalapeno

            They aren’t the ones who said it was “extremist”. You were.

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            They said they went further, and they were already for abortion on demand through all 9 months, without apology.

            Again, if you want to go to bed at night and believe that is not extremist, please feel free to delude yourself.

            Goodbye.

          • Jalapeno

            Going further is automatically extremist in your eyes?

            Imagine for a second that people were actually trying to force churches to preach that gay marriage was okay. People fought back and made sure we got laws in place to protect the churches.

            Would that be “extremist”?

          • WorldGoneCrazy

            Are you stalking me, Sir?

            Do you know what “goodbye” means?

          • Jalapeno

            Alright. I understand…answering basic questions about your own statements is difficult. It’s easier to just tell them to stop asking.

            You have my sympathy. (Not really.)

            @Stalker.

            I don’t think you know what that word means.

            Okay though. Questions are hard.

            Maybe eventually you’ll come up with an actual example of an actual new extremist position that’s not just a fringe view. If not, I’ll just assume you feel like making statements with no basis because it makes you feel better about yourself.

    Each year that goes by the rabid femocrats get uglier and uglier. They keep trying to force feed the story that PP is altruistic when we all know it’s a hell hole. I am all for women having access to birth control and STD testing. But I truly believe any and all monies given to PP should be ended and re-distributed fairly to organizations that truly do promote women’s choice to be responsible and happy about taking the steps to be responsbible. And I stand with those that also say it’s time to free the pill and give everyone equal access to it over the counter- affordably.
    I find it so weird that with all the issues and shared desires for America’s balance and harmony that the Dems stand so loudlly on this soapbox as if they wake up every day programmed to be filled with such strange direction. BTW, The ACA slammed on America is the law of the land and as such birth control is FREE now, So really, there isn’t any real need for abortion on demand anymore. But that’s what these women who use abortion as badges of blood want. Abortion on demand. Kind of twisted IMHO but then again so are femocrats.

    Doniminion of the Democrats = No liberty, No life

  • TheBottomline4This

    Democrats are so foolish. Don’t get me wrong, Republicans have their fair share of issues, but this article is about the Democrats.
    The Democrats are basically fighting for the death of unborn children since that is the result each Abortion. How sick is that!!! The Democrats are not fighting for the innocent life of the millions of sons and daughters that have been killed and will be because of the “choice” the Mom makes in “choosing” Abortion.
    Then the hypocritical Democrats who who support that, but then cry for gun control to save lives is laughable. I never listen to a person who wants gun control, and also supports Abortions.
    As for their fight for the trans…given it is an emotional/mental illness…no points there to them for supporting and enabling mental illness.
    Democrats are some of the most lame people I have met. They are heartless, ill focused people who don’t have a clue how foolish the really are.

  • BorrowerNorLender

    The Democrats aim is to reduce Black numbers and it is working. There are many thousands more Black babies aborted than there are live black births in NYC every year. Elitist White Democrat Supremacists have convinced Black Women to commit a ‘silent genocide’ on their own kind. It’s sad Black Women never stand up to the condescending White Democrats. They should challenge them about the disproportionate representation of PP extermination offices in minority areas…

  • Madeleine Bryant-Kambe

    The Abortion is not safe for the baby in her womb, is it….and the “doctor” sucks babies limbs off, or burns him from the inside out, or slams a catheter into his skull and vacuums the brains out until the baby’s skull collapses….all without anesthesia. Women also die after abortions.

  • JamalZ

    PP is an organization that is discriminatory. High time they got sued. Right now the sinful Obama regime is trying to force truly faithful believers to peform abortions. True. He’s sick. PP receives a lot of tax payer funding. They are obligated then to also provide information and services to women of all faiths, creeds. That means they need to be sued to provide resources for ALL pregnancy services including adoption. Ah, but they don’t and they get away with that. No more. It’s time that Christian organizations, women and men file a huge class action suit claiming what we all know-that so called “women’s centers” are not offering ALL women equal right to ALL forms of pregnancy service. Why has this taken so long to do? Now is the time. Now. Why doesn’t PP offer adoption services, ultra sounds, etc. at ALL of their centers? Cause they don’t want to. Too bad. People who love God and want to save lives,not end lives are being harassed daily by the pro baby death cult. It’s time to defend ALL women and make sure that PP is no longer the slanted and subjective “health care” organization they are. Christians have to bake cakes for gays, PP clinics have to provide compassionate, pro life alternatives for Christian women. Not refer them somewhere else where “they” do it, nope they must be required to see a women’s pregnancy needs are met. Time to get the best lawyers in the land on this.
