After Democrats spent several days at their convention lauding abortion rights, Cardinal Timothy Dolan delivered the benediction, closing the convention with a call to protect the unborn: "Thus do we praise you for the gift of life. Grant us the courage to defend it, life without which no other rights are secure. We ask your benediction on those waiting to be born, that they may be welcomed and protected."

Plenty among the Democrats cannot have been happy. Dolan received virtually no applause.
Dolan also delivered a similar line when giving the benediction last week at the end of the Republican convention. Dolan received considerably more applause after that prayer.
