Democrats for Life Urge ‘Inclusive Language’ on Abortion

Weekly Standard: “In an effort to convince the Democratic party to use “more inclusive language” on the issue of abortion, Democrats for Life executive director Kristen Day is “urg[ing] all Democrats, including those who would come back to the Democratic Party if it changes its abortion stance, to sign the online petition calling for the 2012 Platform to honor and acknowledge our big tent policy.” Day’s announcement came in the form of a press release announcing the petition.

The petition states that “The Democratic Platform language should be inclusive and endorse the views of all Democrats.” Its aim is to sign up the one-third of Democratic voters who are apparently pro-life.”
