Despite my disappointment with Bush, this is why I vote Republican: They support and defend life.
The proposed Republican Party platform takes a starkly different approach to the issue of abortion compared with the platform language Democrats approved yesterday. While the Democratic Party promotes abortion without limits, the GOP retains its support for a Constitutional amendment against abortion.
A 112-page draft of the proposed platform became available to Republican Party members on Tuesday who comprise the platform committee.
That is about half the length of the current platform, which advocates a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution that would afford legal protection to unborn children throughout pregnancy.
