When Democrats passed the most extreme party platform at their convention last summer, the abortion lobby cheered. Their takeover of the party was near completion. The president of NARAL, one of the top abortion groups in the country, spoke about her abortion at the convention and met thunderous applause. No pro-life Democrats spoke at the convention, which included no semblance of anything that could be construed as anti-abortion. Abortion had become the litmus test for Democrats.
After all, the party nominated Hillary Clinton, whose radical views on abortion—that abortion should be legal for any reason, at any point in pregnancy—resonated with a paltry 17 percent of millennials. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion vendor, supported Clinton in the primary and after she won the nomination. They boasted they would spend $30 million and have a bigger ground team than the campaign did. They also gave 99 percent of their donations to Democrats, not surprisingly.
