Gingrich: Democrats Extreme on Abortion

By    |   Tuesday, 04 September 2012 03:23 PM

The Democrats are the extreme party when it comes to abortion, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has claimed, saying their national convention platform seeks to keep abortion legal for any reason and paid for by taxpayers.

“The Democratic Party plank on abortion is the most extreme plank in the United States,” Gingrich said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” LifeNews.com reports. “The president of the United States voted three times to protect the right of doctors to kill babies who came out of an abortion still alive. That plank says tax-paid abortion at any moment, meaning partial-birth abortion.

“The vast majority of women do not believe that taxpayers should pay to abort a child in the eighth or ninth month,” Gingrich told host David Gregory.

He added that Republicans would come under intense media criticism with such a stance on abortion.

“So, you think it’s acceptable to have a party committed to tax-paid abortion in the eighth and ninth month?” Gingrich asked. “And you think that’s a sustainable position in the United States?

“If the news media spent as much time on the extremism of the Democrats as they spend trying to attack us, they would not be able to adopt that plank this week.”

The Democratic National Convention is being held this week in Charlotte, N.C.
