Denver, CO (LifeNews.com) -- During the Democratic convention in Denver where pro-abortion presidential candidate Barack Obama will be coronated as the party's nominee, a leading pro-abortion group will put on a big shindig. Emily's List will unite failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Obama's wife Michelle.
That Barack Obama's wife would attend a gala for a pro-abortion group that supports partial-birth abortions and taxpayer-funded abortions is no surprise.
Michelle Obama came under fire in May for a letter she wrote defending partial-birth abortions. The 2004 letter, written to help Obama in his campaign for his U.S. Senate seat, opposes the ban on the abortion procedure.
The pairing of Clinton and Obama will be a means of raising funds for the presidential election -- giving the leading pro-abortion group cash to bash John McCain.
But the event will have an emotional impact as well, since Emily's List was squarely in Clinton's corner during the primary and fought with the Obama camp before the junior senator clinched the nomination.
The reception will take place on the Tuesday of the convention week -- August 26, the 88th anniversary of women's suffrage -- and will also feature pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
"Senator Clinton has long been a supporter of Emily's list and encouraging women to run for Congress," Emily's List spokeswoman Ramona Oliver said. "This is going to be a great year from women. We have a fantastic class of women running for Congress, Senate and the governor's office."
Political insiders have speculated about the role Clinton will play in the convention and Oliver confirmed that Clinton will be a spokeswoman for the pro-abortion side during the rest of the presidential campaign.
Emily's list has played a role in uniting the party, "talking about how (GOP presidential nominee John) McCain is obviously not the choice for women who care about things like pay equity and choice," Oliver said.
"This special event, held on the 88th anniversary of womens suffrage, will celebrate Democratic women as we come together for victory at the Democratic National Convention," the group says.
The 2 p.m. event will take place at the Sheraton Denver Hotel and ticket prices range from $500 for red carpet seating to $50 for general admission.
Those big hotels usually have artwork on the walls. Wouldn't it be appropriate if it was of aborted fetuses? Every Liberal in the world should have that on their walls, since they love it so much. [Sorry for the gross imagery - maybe it will give a Liberal pause.]
I guess Obama's children, along with Clinton's and Pelosi's, should consider themselves lucky, since their parents allowed them to live.
I still don't get how you can be pro killing your own children.
So, what do they serve at a big, fancy Pro-Abortion Dinner... I am almost afraid to ask...
Should be a “killer” party
Keep it up ladies. Under B. Hussein Obama’s Sharia law you will have NO rights to your anything. Including your clitoris BTW.
That is so good, I'm going to have to steal it!
Mrs Obama and Mrs Clinton, two good candidates for retroactive abortions.
SanFranNan is going to be there. She is a walking definition of cafeteria Catholic. She ought to be excommunicated.
The very idea of Hillary and Michelle getting together is scary....but united to support the killing of the unborn...
I hope this is not a harbinger of future activities.
“pro-abortion dinner.” Wow. Words I never really wanted to see in the same sentence. What’re they going to eat, spaghetti?
You can add outrageous bad taste to the uppity attitude.
Is PETA a co-sponsor?
Please FreepMail me if you want on or off my Pro-Life Ping List.
‘Let me guess, they will dine on a vegetarian meal while chanting kill kill kill kill.’
Funny how that works. Remember the ‘sniper’? No, not Hillery’s ‘snipper’— sorry if I confused you. I mean that Muhammad/Malvo team. Malvo was a vegetarian too. We Virginians made him eat a little pork for a while, but the vegetarians told us that meat eating makes people more violent. I really enjoyed the thought of Malvo and Muhammed eating pork. [sigh]
Kill the babies and defend convicted murderers— that’s liberal-think.
Most media hawks remember when Nina Burleigh offered to put on 'knee pads' for Bill Clinton's support of abortion. She went even further than that. ...American women should be lining up with their presidential kneepads on to show their gratitude for keeping the theocracy off our backs." -- Nina Burleigh [Time contributor and former Time reporter]
I would love to start a trend of Freepers using my tagline.
It exposes through ridicule the ridiculous notion of voting for somebody based upon race.
And if anyone ever accuses me of racism based upon my tagline, all I have to do is ask how it would be any different than all of the folks voting for BO out of racial solidarity and pride?
The more the better!
And what will they be serving at the abortion dinner...?
