While the party has long held a pro-choice platform, survey data show that Democrats have shifted farther leftward on the abortion debate in recent years.
According to Pew, the percentage of Democrats who believe that abortion should be legal in all or most cases has increased from 66 percent in 2007 to 79 percent in 2016. more >>
Several leading family scholars and authors are decrying the totalitarian nature of the sexual revolution after the popular children's magazine Highlights announced it will start featuring same-sex parents in upcoming issues.

An Islamic State document uncovered during the offensive to retake the group's Iraqi stronghold of Mosul has exposed the terror group's rules and regulations for the treatment of religious minority sex slaves, including "pre-pubescent girls" who are sexually assaulted as "concubines."
Reuters has uncovered disturbing documents found in Iraqi villages recently liberated by Iraq-led coalition forces that show IS is more than just an outfit dedicated to carrying out terror attacks, but has also tried to implement its own administrative presence in the areas it conquered.
The documents, which contain the IS black flag logo, were found in offices used by the terror group up until recently. Although the documents have not yet been verified as authentic, Iraqi troops told Reuters that the documents did originate from the terror group. more >>
A number of women and young girls who were rescued from the clutches of radical Islamic jihadist groups in Nigeria were also victimized and raped by the government officials entrusted to protect them, according to Human Rights Watch.
"It is bad enough that these women and girls are not getting much-needed support for the horrific trauma they suffered at the hands of Boko Haram. It is disgraceful and outrageous that people who should protect these women and girls are attacking and abusing them," says Mausi Segun, senior Nigeria researcher at Human Rights Watch, in a new report that reveals the women's abusers included camp leaders, vigilante groups, policemen and soldiers.
Four of the victims who shared their stories with HRW said they were drugged and raped, while at least 37 others said they were coerced into sex through false marriage promises and material help. more >>
Pope Francis said on Tuesday he believes the Roman Catholic Church's ban on women becoming priests is forever and will never be changed, in some of his most definitive remarks on the issue.
He was speaking aboard a plane taking him back to Rome from Sweden, in the freewheeling news conference with reporters that has become a tradition of his return flights from trips abroad.
A Swedish female reporter noted that the head of the Lutheran Church who welcomed him in Sweden was a woman, and then asked if he thought the Catholic Church could allow women to be ordained as ministers in coming decades. more >>
During the third presidential debate between political rivals Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump last Wednesday, the former secretary of state failed the women she purports to represent by perpetuating several myths about abortion and Planned Parenthood that have been proven untrue.
Either by sheer ignorance or cunning deception, Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, misled viewers of the Fox News debate when she said Planned Parenthood provides cancer screenings, China no longer forces women to have abortions, late-term abortions are necessary to save the lives of mothers, and Planned Parenthood is needed to provide healthcare for women.
