Democrats are pushing for unlimited abortions for Medicaid recipients (paid for by taxpayers) in their 2016 platform according to a 7/14 Infowars report by Clifford Cunningham.

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin referred to the move as “crazy.”

The platform is also very pro-Planned Parenthood despite the organization illegally harvesting baby organs for profit.

“The platform goes further than previous Democratic platforms on women’s reproductive rights. It champions Planned Parenthood health centers and commits to push back on all Republican efforts to defund it,” the Democratic Convention Committee said in a prepared statement.

The measure would result in the dissolution of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds for most abortions along with the Helms Amendment aimed at banning foreign aid money from being used for abortions.

The Democratic Party’s 2016 platform calls for allowing unlimited taxpayer funding for elective abortions for Medicaid recipients, a moved slammed as “crazy” by Democratic Senator Joe Manchin.

Demonstrating a dramatic shift to the left on the issue of abortion, the Democratic Party’s platform calls for the repeal of both the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funds for most types of abortion, and the Helms Amendment, which bans foreign aid from being used for abortions.

“We will continue to oppose — and seek to overturn — federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment … we support the repeal of harmful restrictions that obstruct women’s access to health care information and services, including the ‘global gag rule’ and the Helms Amendment that bars U.S. assistance to provide safe, legal abortion throughout the developing world,” the platform reads.
