2012 Party Platforms on Abortion:
The Republican Party adheres to a “faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”
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. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.”
2012 Party Platforms on Euthanasia:
The Republican Party “opposes the non-consensual withholding or withdrawal of care or treatment, including food and water, from people with disabilities, including newborns, as well as the elderly and infirm, just as we oppose active and passive euthanasia and assisted suicide.”
The 2012 Democratic Party had nothing to say on the matter. However, given their support for killing unborn Americans and the results of the poll below, it’s not hard to figure what they’d say if they decided to make it a hot button issue.
