The DNC Is Adopting Abortion Positions Most Americans Disagree With

The Democratic National Committee is about to adopt its most radical pro-abortion platform ever. Thanks to a platform committee that pushed the party to the left, the Democratic platform includes language that opposes the Hyde Amendment, a common sense piece of legislation that prohibits the government from forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions. The DNC’s decision to challenge the Hyde Amendment is so extreme that even members of the party are calling it “crazy.”

Hillary Clinton is apparently fine with the platform position, even promising supporters at a Planned Parenthood event that she will repeal Hyde as president.

That’s why the results of a new Knights of Columbus Marist poll is so important. In a survey of 1,000 adults, voters made clear that they do not support the DNC’s new agenda.

Though 51 percent of Americans say they are pro-choice, about 8 in 10 Americans support substantial restrictions on abortion (78 percent), and would limit it to, at most, the first three months of pregnancy. This number includes 62 percent of those who identify as pro-choice, 85 percent of African Americans and 84 percent of Latinos.

Taxpayer funding for abortion is opposed by 62 percent of Americans. This includes 65 percent of African Americans, 61 percent of Latinos, and 45 percent of those who say they are pro-choice, as well as 84 percent of Republicans, 61 percent of Independents and 44 percent of Democrats.

The majority of Americans, in other words, would be appalled to read the fine print of the DNC platform. It is the Republican Party's job to magnify it.

If the platform wasn’t already an indication of how radical the Democratic Party has become, its speaker schedule for this week's convention will relieve any doubts. Among the headliners are Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards and NARAL President Ilyse Hogue.
