Cardinal Timothy Dolan closed out the DNC convention Thursday night with a benediction asking for protection of the unborn, a bold move in an arena full of people who celebrated what has been described as "abortion palooza" all week in Charlotte. Not to mention, the Democratic Party adopted a platform that promotes taxpayer funded abortion and abortion at any time, in any place, for any reason this week. President of NARAL Nancy Keenan even called for abortion to be viewed as an act of dignity during her speech Tuesday.

"Thus do we praise you for the gift of life. Grant us the courage to defend it. Life without which no other rights are secure. We ask your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected."
