Ilyse Hogue is the president of National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League. She recently spoke at the Democratic National Convention. Her presence as a speaker at the DNC demonstrates confirms Family First’s comment:
The US Democrat Party is without doubt the party of death – and unashamed of it. It’s ironic that not one of the Democratic supporters of abortion (including Hillary) has been a victim of it!

The Extent of Victimhood
I understand what Family First means when it excludes supporters of abortion from the victim category. I would suggest that everyone involved in abortion is a victim of it. From the parents who pressure their daughter into having an abortion. From the father of the aborted child, to the abortion-provider.
Most of all however, though second to the death of a unique human person (i.e. the unborn), the abortion-seeking and obtaining woman is chief among victims of the culture of death.
Ilyse Houge and Lila Rose
In a less recent video, Democrat National Convention speaker Ilyse Hogue was cross-examined, alongside Lyla Rose on CNN’s Crossfire. During the show, Lila Rose rightly presented the most fundamental question in the culture war – What is it that grows in the womb of a pregnant woman during pregnancy?
