Ignoring the plight of human babies in the womb, Utah Democrats hope to make animal rights a top priority in their party platform for 2017.
Utah Policy reports a draft of the state Democratic Party platform puts animal rights on its list of top 10 priorities, along with education, economy, healthcare, climate change and a few other issues.
Unsurprisingly, protections for human babies in the womb do not make it on the list. However, affirming “abortion rights” is listed under women’s rights in priority 15, according to the blog.
The priority list is just a draft. Delegates are scheduled to vote on it in June. But it seems unlikely that unborn babies will be recognized as deserving of protection, given the Democratic Party’s strong allegiance to the abortion industry.

Of course, there is nothing wrong with wanting to protect animals or making them a top priority. The problem is that similar regard is not being given to the nearly 1 million unborn human babies who are killed every year in abortion facilities across the United States.
Babies in the womb are defenseless and vulnerable human beings. When they are aborted, they have their own unique DNA and almost certainly a heartbeat. Yet, these are human beings who are killed legally in massive numbers daily simply because they are not yet born. Some are vacuumed out or shot through the heart with poison. Sometimes their bodies are crushed or dismembered and pulled out of the womb in pieces.
And the gruesome abuses extend beyond just these babies. Many times their mothers feel pressured or forced to have them aborted. Some women are even threatened and abused when they refuse to abort their unborn child.
Abortion has become one of the greatest human rights injustices of the modern age, damaging and destroying millions of moms’ and babies’ lives every year. Sadly, one of America’s two major political parties does not just ignore these abuses, it fights to keep abortions legal and easily accessible at any time and for any reason up until the baby’s birth.
