NARAL? More of the same rhetoric - my comments in red

NARAL president rails against McCain's pro-life positions in DNC speech
Denver, August 26 (CNA).-Nancy Keenan, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, delivered a speech at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) in Denver on Monday afternoon, saying DNC delegates will nominate Sen. Barack Obama as the "next pro-choice president of the United States." Warning supporters of abortion that "reproductive freedom is on the line," she claimed a McCain presidency could endanger permissive abortion laws in the U.S. (never mind the freedom of a child to be able to live)

Claiming the party is united behind the "core moral (abortion is moral?)values" of supporting and defending "a woman's right to choose safe (UNSAFE for the baby, injures the mother and father AND can lead to maternal death) legal abortion," she said the Democratic Party believes in doing more to prevent "unintended pregnancy" to reduce the need for abortion. She pressed for "honest, realistic sex education"(oh yes, MS Keenan, putting planned deathhood in the schools from K to 12 is just a great way to have 'honest, realistic' education. Check this out be aware that it is pretty disgusting, but brought to you by planned deathhood ) while professing a shared stand in the "right to choose contraception." She also said the party stands with women who choose adoption.(pretty hard to adopt out a baby that has been aborted, MS Keenan)

Arguing that the debate over "reproductive rights" has been "divisive" and dominated by black-and-white slogans that "fail to acknowledge the profound complexity most people feel on the issue of abortion, (Not complex for me...abortion kills a human being ) she asserted that such putatively complex opinions can be respected "while still protecting the fundamental values of freedom ( what freedom for the baby?) and privacy."Keenan attacked presumptive Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, arguing that he has voted to ban abortion without exceptions for victims of incest or rape.(well, yah, a baby is a baby is a baby - to kill it because of the way it was conceived is well, still premeditated murder ) She also attacked what she said was his support for the Republican Party platform, which calls for outlawing abortion in all circumstances. ( Well, now, MS Keenan - don't you think we have had enough killing of the most defenseless among us? FIFTY MILLION AND COUNTING?)

Noting the presidential election coincides with the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion nationwide, she claimed "reproductive freedom is on the line." ( seems we've heard this before, MS Keenan )Characterizing U.S. Supreme Court's status as at "an ideological tipping point," she said Sen. McCain has pledged to appoint Supreme Court justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade. ( What a BRILLIANT idea! Why doesn't Barry NObama think of this...he says he will "change America and bring hope!" Could he bring home to the millions of babies facing abortion?)

Keenan's short speech tended to focus on McCain more than Obama. In her printed remarks, she mentions Sen. Obama's name twice but Sen. McCain's name five times.

She closed her speech by calling Sen. Obama "an effective and passionate leader who will protect a woman's right to choose now and for future generations."( which makes Barry NObama an accomplice to murder, in my book and future generations? Come on MS Keenan - how will future generations look at the holocaust that you continue to promote? What will be your legacy? )

to the Keenan biography provided by the DNC, Keenan was "born into an Irish-Catholic family" in the state of Montana, for which she later served as a state legislator. (well, guess she has left her Irish Catholic roots - the Church is still here, MS Keenan, and welcomes you to repent, and come back. )
