Democrats and the Abortion Lobby

Apropos of an earlier post, I noted the following from a National Catholic Register story on Ray Flynn, former mayor of Boston, and pro-life, Catholic Democrat:
    Kristen Day, executive director of Washington-based Democrats for Life, says the party's pro-abortion platform is driven by cash.

    "It all has to do with the amount of money that Planned Parenthood and NARAL (Nation Abortion Rights Action League) channel into the Democratic Party," Day said. "There is a growing pro-life momvement in the Democratic Party, but the abortion industry is paying the party to defend abortion rights" (Wayne Laugesen, "Flynn Would Rather Fight Than Switch," National Catholic Register, October 10-16, p. 3).
As I've said, I think that's the only way to explain how very intelligent people (Kerry) have said very stupid things (trying to explain his position on abortion).
