The lineup of speakers at this week’s Democratic National Convention features a who’s who of Big Abortion. The abortion profiteers list includes Cecile Richards, head of the nation’s top abortion provider, Planned Parenthood; Nancy Keenan, head of NARAL Pro-Choice America; and Georgetown University contraception activist Sandra Fluke, who wants American taxpayers to fund abortion and birth control.

Each day, the convention will highlight politicians and Hollywood stars hostile to religious freedom and the pro-life cause. If in attendance, pro-life Democrats are to be seen, but not heard. The message is clear: If you are a pro-life Democrat, you are not welcome at this Democratic-establishment abortion-palooza. The party that spins diversity is signaling to pro-lifers that they have no business showing up in Charlotte, N.C.

President Obama’s brand of hope and change, which won over many, has turned into a campaign of despair, division and pro-abortion activism. His accomplishments certainly aren’t seen in the economy. His record makes him the most pro-abortion, anti-religion president in American history. By casting the convention as largely one about abortion and the anti-religious freedom and anti-First Amendment mandate from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party think they can capture a large enough share of the women’s vote to compensate for their problems with other constituencies. They’ve severely misunderstood their target demographic. Women are not single-issue oriented and women are deadlocked when it comes to the pro-life-versus-pro-abortion question.

The reality is that any gender gap that may exist is not because of abortion. In fact, in a Gallup poll this year, 46 percent of women identified themselves as pro-life while 44 percent identified as pro-choice. The pro-life numbers are even higher among married women.

However, the close numbers are largely recorded in an up and down question: Are you pro-life or pro-choice? When the discussion comes to taxpayer funding of abortion, leaving abortion survivors to die, partial-birth abortion, sex-selective abortion and abortion after the unborn child can feel pain, women even more frequently find these positions objectionable, abhorrent and even grotesque. Women don’t see late-term abortions and a government-subsidized abortion industry as their future.
