Democratic Candidates Betray Faith Community and the Will of the American People with Their Support of Partial-Birth Abortion
Every major poll shows that a majority of Americans support the ban on partial-birth abortion.

WASHINGTON, April 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- All eight candidates expressed opposition to the recent Supreme Court decision upholding the federal ban on partial-birth abortion.
The Christian Defense Coalition says by taking this position all the candidates have shown a profound disregard for basic human rights and the will of the American public, who clearly support the ban.
The Coalition says it will be impossible for these candidates to portray themselves as "people of faith" when they support a procedure that crushes the head of innocent child moments before they are born.
Group also encourages faith leaders to speak out with passion against this crushing of human rights.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, director of the Christian Defense Coalition, comments, "After last night's debate, it is important for the American public, especially the faith community, to take a long look at the lack of respect they have for basic human rights and social justice. From this moment on, it will be impossible for any of them to portray themselves as 'people of faith,' just as it would be impossible for a racist or sexist to say they are 'people of faith.' One cannot at the same time seek the support of the Christian and faith community in America while supporting a policy which crushes the head of an innocent human child moments before they are born. I would encourage the faith community all across America to speak up with one voice in condemnation of this betrayal of human rights and not be fooled when these candidates try to portray themselves as compassionate, caring people of faith.
"It is hypocritical for these candidates to say they want to end the war in Iraq to 'save American lives' while supporting a procedure that kills innocent children. In fact, almost three times as many Americans died last year from partial-birth abortion than were killed during battle in Iraq."
