Glad yoou get to redefine "leader" in order to suit your argument. By that token, "leaders" of YOUR party support the same thing.
Um, no. NO elected Democrats in office support banning abortion.

And I absolutely define someone who's elected to a senate or house seat as a "leader" of the party.

Hey Dog-
see if you can track down teh guys who stood for that proposition. I think if you have specifics it will be an effective rebuttal that people who hold those views are "leaders"
Nope. If you're elected to a federal level, that makes you a leader in my book. Certainly more of a leader than the rest of us. They shape policy, make decisions, pass legislation.

L1: THe mother is wrong, of course. It wasn't her decision to make.

L2: There's something inbetween. If you think you'll just blow up and need to collect your thoughts, you can say you need to come back to this at a later time -- but don't make it more than a day. Continual silent treatment isn't good, neither is yelling back and forth. Neither of those things accomplish anything.

L3: A bad marriage is not worth having just to gain some real estate. I'm not surprised, though, that there idiots out there who do this just like there are people who stay and get married for all types of reasons that have nothing to do with the marriage itself.

My recollection is that there were a couple candidates who took that position but not elected officials. That is where the fact checking needs to focus.I don't have teh tiem today but maybe tonight if no one elese comes up with it.

I can only think of ONE candidate who didn't believe in abortion no matter what. He lost his election.

Angela has her facts twisted. Republicans oppose "federal funding"- taxpayer funding, of abortions and birth control. She extrapolates that to mean they want them banned altogether. Democrats seem to think that people shouldn't be personally responsible for birth control or abortions.

Nope. WRong. Many republicans oppose abortion AND birth control and want it banned. INCLUDING elected officials.

"Democrats For Life stresses that pro-life and pro-choice Democrats should unite in a common cause to make abortion rare through social programs, despite their differences of opinion on whether and to what degree abortion should be legal."

That's very different than what anti-=choice, anti-woman Republicans want. No abortion, ever. Oh, except for lame reasons like "rape and incest." You know, because apparently those babies don't deserve to live, according to THOSE anti-choice folks.

"Anti-women," how charming. Why not use the more accurate term "anti-baby slaughtering?" Meh, guess that wouldn't really sit well with you folks. And I don't know how many times I have to prove this to you or tell you the same thing over and over, Republicans are NOT against abortions ever and it has NEVER been a part of their platform. But go ahead and keep swallowing what NPR is spoon-feeding you. Can't let facts get in the way of your misguided beliefs.
