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.
People who promote murder ARE NOT "fantastic."

There will be a special place in hell for women who celebrate abortion at festive dinners.
Baby killing death bitches.
“This is going to be a great year from women.”
I doubt that their unborn children would concur!
What’s on the menu? Veal chops? Roasted fetal pig?
These people sicken me.
Will they have dead baby streamers and party favors?
Your tagline is hilarious!! :)
“Women Against Babies”
They should’ve served succulent roast fetus.
I once heard an NPR radio show in which the head of Planned Parenthood was asked what she would tell a woman who was considering having an abortion. She said, “Have you ever had a hangnail?”
“Let me guess, they will dine on a vegetarian meal while chanting ‘kill kill kill kill.’”
No, they will dine on baby seals.
Yep, the way the feminazi abortionists tell it, a woman should put far more thought into changing her hairstyle than she should to murdering her baby.
Makes you wonder how anyone could enjoy a meal after promoting this murder of innocents.
