The Republican Platform states: "We assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We oppose using public revenues to promote or perform abortion or fund organizations which perform or advocate it and will not fund or subsidize health care which includes abortion coverage."
Now here is the verbatim quote on the same subject from the Democratic Platform: "The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman's right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right."
Now let's compare the two Platforms on the issue of Marriage. The Republican Platform states and I quote: "We affirm our support for a Constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. Congressional Republicans took the lead in enacting the Defense of Marriage Act, affirming the right of States and the federal government not to recognize same-sex relationships."
And now I will read you verbatim from the Democratic Platform: "We support the movement to secure equal treatment under law for same-sex couples. We support the full repeal of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act."
There's the difference, friends. Make your decision which side you are on.
