Democrats' "Abortionpalooza" 2012

We have been told repeatedly that President Obama himself intervened to ensure that language invoking God and defining Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel was re-inserted into the Democratic platform.

Presumably, then, the President was willing to force platform amendments even at the last hour.  Given that's the case, why did he not insist on re-insertion of other deleted language: That "abortion should be safe, legal and rare"?

You know that the Democrats' Abortionpalooza 2012 has gone too far when even committed pro-choicers like Margaret Carlson are deploring Democrats' abortion extremism. The Obama Democrats have subtly transformed their party's view on abortion from something that should be legal, though undesirable, to something that should, it seems, be almost celebrated.  Perhaps that's not surprising, given the President's history of pro-abortion extremism, which includes actively opposing the Born Alive Infant Protection Act -- intended to save babies who are born alive after attempted abortion fails.

Yes, she's a Democrat, so Margaret Carlson must make a ritual incantation of Todd Akin's name.  But she should be honest enough to admit that almost the entire Republican Party has repudiated Akin and his position; by contrast, it appears the President's brand of abortion extremism has become mainstream in his party.  Including the heads of Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Rights Action League as convention speakers suggested that there's a substantial portion of the Democrat base that -- in contrast to Carlson -- is actively "pro-abortion," rather than simply "pro-choice."
