Ramesh wrote the book, and here is how he describes this characterization:
One of the stories the book tells is how abortion transformed the Democratic party from a party primarily concerned about protecting the weak to one that is more avid about defending the alleged rights of the strong. Pro-life Democrats have resisted this transformation, but it is certainly true that the Democratic party has become the party of unrestricted abortion, lethal research on human embryos, and euthanasia. The way I put it is that the party of death has largely taken over the Democratic party and has an outpost in the Republican party too.
I think this concept of partying over death is not a new one, and it is not an original American political party idea. Many political islamists are life-long members of a party of death, both Sunni Taleban and Shia Mullah. There is a little twist, however, because instead of focusing on the child in the womb or the weak to die they want their young men and boys to die and kill off some infidels in the process.
Mohammed at the Iraq the Model puts it this way:
Islamists have failed to offer a chance for a better life whether when they were in the opposition or when they got to rule the country. I think that's why they try to sell the idea of death instead of life; they failed to offer a better life so they picked up the slogan of death and "martyrdom" to promise a better life, but in an imaginary heaven; not in real life.
Maybe in a kinda twisted way these lefties here in America are following the same pattern. They have failed to offer a chance for a better life whether when they were in the opposition or when they got to rule the country(ie Jimmy Carter). I think that's why they sell unrestricted abortions, lethal research on human embryos, and euthanasia to promise a better life, but in an imaginary Utopia; not in real life.
