Bryan Fischer went on another rant concerning the Democratic National Convention’s stance on abortion, stating, “The DNC will be a party that celebrates death” and calling it a “three-day Auschwitz” on his show Focal Point.
Fischer also quoted Hot Air Blogger, Ed Morrissey, when he called the DNC an “abortion-palooza”.
According to rightwingwatch.org, part of Fischer’s issues concerned the DNC featuring Sandra Fluke, a Pro-Choice activist, as one of their speakers at their gathering in North Carolina next month. She and other pro-choice activists will speak at the DNC gathering next month and are part of the DNC’s pro-choice platform. Fischer is talking about these speakers when he made the accusation, “Everybody on that platform is everybody that celebrates death.”
Sandra Fluke wrote a response, via email concerning Akin’s statement about rape, “This controversy is not an accident, or a mistake, or an isolated incident. It’s a reflection of a Republican Party whose policies are dangerous for women.”
RHRealityCheck.org Editor-in-Chief Jodi Jacobson, a long-time women’s and reproductive rights activist and writer, applauded the DNC’s decision to include Fluke to their list of convention speakers.
“She is extremely articulate and smart,” Jacobson said. “Some leaders come about over time, others are catapulted. She speaks for a new generation of young women.”
Nancy Keenan, the president of the country’s longest active abortion-rights group, NARAL Pro-Choice America, will speak at the DNC gathering also.
“As I stand on stage at the convention, I will amplify your pro-choice voices,” Keenan wrote in a blog post today. “I’m proud that the Democratic Party is again reaffirming its commitment to protect women’s reproductive rights through the party platform, and by choosing so many pro-choice speakers for the convention.”
ABC gives a list of others, who accepted the DNC’s invitation to speak at theNorth Carolina gathering next month.
The other speakers confirmed this morning: Rep. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin; Tammy Duckworth, the former assistant secretary for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs ; Denise Juneau, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Montana; Caroline Kennedy; Lilly Ledbetter; Eva Longoria, actress and Obama Campaign Co-Chairwoman; U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski of Maryland; and Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood.
This list of Pro-choice speakers Fischer allegedly was talking about in his show and accusing them of “celebrating death”.
