Nearly 3,000 progressive bloggers, grassroots and union activists, online organizers, journalists and more are gathering here this week for the seventh annual “Netroots Nation” convention.

The convention, billed as the country's largest progressive gathering, spells big bucks and high profile. As the Netroots website says: “Think family reunion for the left.”

Netroots board consists of member of NARAL a pro-abortion advocacy group and their staff consists of progressives that have worked for the Democratic National Committee.

According to RedAlertsPolitics Blog:

In addition to Obama , Advocates for Youth’s leader: Debra Hauser also addressed the pro-abortion bloggers.

If liberal organization Advocates for Youth has its way, one day there will be an abortion clinic on every corner in America.

That’s right. The organization and its supporters hope that one day abortion clinics will outnumber Starbucks,’ 7-11’s, McDonalds’ and gas stations.

At a progressive conference for bloggers and activists, Netroots Nation, Debra Hauser, Advocates for Youth President, told attendees of a panel on sexual education and abortion that there needed to be a new “culture around abortion” in the United States.

“So you could put a Planned Parenthood– and I hope we do – on every corner in America, and you can have good sex education in the classroom, but if you still have a culture that says sex is negative, sex is bad, sex means death, sex means disease and dying, where we can’t deal with normal adolescent sexual development, where we believe that young people should just say no, then we can’t get to a place where young people can feel confident and comfortable going into that Planned Parenthood or using that information,” she said.

Hausner also lamented that “only” 28 percent of high school students are on birth control or Depo Provera (a birth control shot). “So we have a long way to go,” she added.
