Democrats’ 2012 party platform opposes “any and all efforts to weaken or undermine” abortion rights, which means the platform does not oppose taxpayer-funded late-term abortions opposed by most Americans.

“The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay,” the platform reads. “We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”

Maureen Ferguson, senior Policy Advisor at The Catholic Association, said Democrats risked “further alienating Catholics and other pro-religious freedom, pro-life constituencies.”

“President Obama has opposed even minor limits on abortion, such as a ban on sex-selective abortion, a ban on late term abortions past the point at which the unborn child is capable of feeling pain, and has even opposed legislation to protect a baby accidentally born alive after a failed abortion,” Ferguson said. “As our recent poll of Catholics by QEV Analytics demonstrated, the President is pouring gasoline on a fire he should be looking to extinguish.”
