    Default Republican platform set to ban all abortions, no exceptions for rape or incest

    Todd Akin, Steve King and Paul Ryan are not outliers in the Republican Party, they are the FACE of the Republican party.

    The GOP's platform is proof:

    Following the controversial words of Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), the issue of abortion and women's rights is back in the news and not in a good way.

    The Republican party is set to announce an official platform that includes an amendment to the Constitution known as the "Human Life Amendment." The new amendment would outlaw abortion and leave no exceptions even in cases of rape or incest. According to CNN, the draft of the new Republican platform uses harsh language in describing their tough new anti-abortion law.

    “Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”

    The draft was supposed to be kept secret, but a Republican source leaked it to CNN. The platform, which is being crafted in Tampa, FL, must be approved by delegates to the Republican National Convention and a platform committee.

    A few? Seriously?

    The Republican party is WAAAAAAAAAY crazier than it was 15 or 20 years ago.

    Ronald Reagan would be a RINO compared to the crazy fucks running the show for the GOP today!

    Are you really going to believe everything a liberal hack job reporter is going to write. This guy, Robert Sobol, has an agenda. The proof is the type of articles he writes. They all attack conservatives. Come on now Phillybri, and you attack Voivod for posting things from Drudge. Give me a break.

    Yes he will, and so will someone who is in favor of the other side, too.

    Hyper-Partisanship is the REAL danger facing our nation. There is no room for compromise anymore, and we the people will suffer and have been because of it.

    The same basic language was in the 2000, 2004 and 2008 platforms as well. This year's was supposedly leaked to CNN, so that's where this is coming from.

    The abortion issue is no more a staple of the GOP platform then it ever has been.....it's a classic leftist distraction for the real issues that are important to people. They feel things slipping away because their record sucks, so they're dredging up divisive issues to emphasize the contrast.

    I, as a conservative, couldn't give a shit about what a woman decides to do with her fetus....until they expect my tax dollars to fund it, which is an issue now.


    Everyone wants the government to stay out of their bedroom, but they want publicly funded contraception and abortion....you can't have it both ways.

    Yeah, I'm not sure why this is big news. It's been there before, and besides, it's logically consistent if you think a fetus inside a womb is still considered a human being (which even US law does...when it's convenient).
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    I honestly can't comprehend how the far left and far right believe that the only things that matter in this country are gay rights and abortion. Shit the DNC is rumored to put gay marriage on their ticket. Who the fuck cares to both parties.

    Fix the fucking economy. Bruce and Shane can fuck each other in public while smoking a big fucking blunt and afterwards can protest outside an abortion clinic for all I care.

    Just fix the economy. The litmus test for you fucking whack jobs doesn't matter to me.

    Sorry bad day at work. I wish people would wake the fuck up and realize the the left and right are fucking you in the ass and not giving you the decency of a reach around.

    I think 95% of the Republican Party probably agrees with that general sentiment. Just fix the fucking the economy. Of course, the only reason why this is news is because the media is forcing it down people's throats. It's not the Republican Party making a big issue out of it--it's just a standard part of their platform. It's journalists trying to get a "gotcha" moment or bloggers trying to blow up the coverage over an off-the-cuff remark.

    Sadly, that's what passes as journalism these days. Unless you generate a headline, you don't have a story.

    Amen! If you can't afford to pay for your own contraception, then DON'T HAVE SEX. Did he just say to not have sex? Impossible!

    The simple fact that someone as ignorant as Wasserman is an elected official is mind boggling to me.

    Who in the hell would vote for her? At least she is buried in the House where she can do the least amount of damage.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.
