Democratic National Committee chairman and losing presidential contender Howard Dean elucidates his and the Democratic Party's attitude towards pro-lifers:
"I want to reach out to people who are worried about values."
Dean is very worried about values. He's worried that they exist.
He goes on:
"We are going to embrace pro-life Democrats because pro-life Democrats care about kids after they're born, not just before they're born."
Ignore the timeworn canard that only Democrats care about children—that's a red herring. Read Dean's comments over and what he's really doing is repeating his party's brazen denial of the dignity of human life.
"[P]ro-life Democrats care about kids after they're born, not just before they're born," translates to, "We Democrats have no reason to care about kids before they're born."
