Republicans are against all abortion

Forget about Akin for a bit, here’s the Republican convention platform:

The 110-member panel, meeting today in Tampa, Fla., passed a so-called Human Life Amendment that calls for a ban on abortion, without mention of the more common exceptions for victims of rape or incest.

“Faithful to the ‘self-evident’ truths enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, we assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed,” said platform language obtained by CNN. “We support a human life amendment to the Constitution and endorse legislation to make clear that the Fourteenth Amendment’s protections apply to unborn children.”

This would make abortion the same as murder and thus outlaw it in all cases if Roe v. Wade is overturned and Republicans want it overturned. This is the official Republican platform.
