Barack Obama's Wife Michelle to Join Hillary Clinton at Pro-Abortion Dinner

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 women’s 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.

Would it be wrong for me to ask just how many abortions Mrs Osama’s had?
***************************************************
I would say absolutely not... after all don’t these people say it’s no different than having your hair cut or your nails trimmed? Rumor has it that she had several and her militant pro-killing “close your eyes and pretend it means nothing” approach to the subject seems to give strength to that argument..

These are very sick people. Their hearts are of stone, and they do the work of the deceiver. They must not be allowed to win the White House.

“’This special event, held on the 88th anniversary of women’s suffrage, will celebrate Democratic women as we come together for victory at the Democratic National Convention,’ the group says.”

No suffragette would ever claim that the only way women should or could get ahead is by killing her child.

Leave it to these pro-abortion Democratic women to make this contrast so very clear.

I guess that one can surmise from all of this that Emily’s List’s women got ahead because they could use abortion when needed.

“Those who forget good and evil and seek only to know the facts are more likely to achieve good than those who view the world through the distorting medium of their own desires.” — Bertrand Russell
