Rep. Todd Akin made some unfortunate comments the other day and he was immediately denounced by all but three American Republicans. So now the Democrats have decided to make Akin the theme of their convention. You would think they would have already had a theme by now, since the convention is less than two weeks away. But it can’t be about their record, so they’re going with the guy who the Republicans are having nothing to do with. Talk about desperate. They’re turning the convention into an abortion festival.
With an eye on Rep. Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” comments and the GOP’s mad dash away from the sinking Missouri Senate candidate, the Democrats are turning their upcoming presidential convention into a pro-choice assault on the Republicans with the help of major abortion supporters.
Just as the Akin crisis was reaching a crescendo, the Democrats on Wednesday announced that three starlets of the pro-choice movement will be featured at the convention, an event that will now drive the liberal charge that the Republicans are anti-women.
Democrats said that they will feature Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parent Action Fund, Nancy Keenan, president of the NARAL Pro-Choice America and Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University student whose plea for federal birth control funding drew the ire–and a subsequent apology–from Rush Limbaugh.

Something tells me this approach could backfire, kind of like the way the “Stop Rush” movement Sandra Fluke sparked backfired. Women with brains aren’t going to fall for this. Especially women who can’t afford to put food on the table for their kids, despite the historic increase in food stamp recipients. The Democrats are such failures even their expanded welfare programs can’t keep up with the number of women who are now poor thanks to their horrid policies.
I’m sure they won’t bring up Obama’s history of supporting third trimester abortion and letting babies who survived abortion procedures just die without any medical assistance.
I also wonder how the tens of thousands of Muslims invited to the convention are going to feel about it being turned into a great big abortion-fest. I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
