Democrats support free abortions...

except they're not "free."  The people who pay taxes will pick up the tab.

From the Democratic Platform (emphasis mine) 

Protecting A Woman’s Right to Choose. 

The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal
abortion, regardless of ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.
Abortion is an intensely personal decision between a woman, her family, her doctor, and her clergy;
there is no place for politicians or government to get in the way. We also recognize that health care and
education help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and thereby also reduce the need for
abortions. We strongly and unequivocally support a woman’s decision to have a child by providing
affordable health care and ensuring the availability of and access to programs that help women during
pregnancy and after the birth of a child, including caring adoption programs.
