Quick Facts on Barack Obama's Abortion Stance

1. Sanctity of Life: When asked when a baby is entitled to human rights Obama responded that the question was above his pay grade. Obama would recommend abortion for his daughters if they got pregnant because he wouldn't want them to be "punished with a baby."

2. Ratings: Obama is rated 0% by the The National Right to Life Committee. Obama is rated 100% by NARAL.

3. Legislation: Obama is against "conscience-clauses" for pro-life doctors who refuse to do abortions. Obama voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions. Obama voted NO on prohibiting minors crossing state lines for abortion.

4. Destructive Embryonic Stem Cell Research: Obama voted YES on expanding research to more embryonic stem cell lines. Obama supports the of human embryos to obtain their stem cells. Obama has signaled that he intends to reverse Bush's controversial limit on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research,

5. Funding Abortion: Obama wants to force taxpayers (and insurance companies) to pay for abortions - supports legislation that would repeal the Hyde Amendment which protects pro-life citizens from having to pay for abortions that are not necessary to save the life of the mother and are not the result of or incest.

6. Partial Birth Abortion: Obama voted against banning the brutal practice of partial-birth abortion.

7. Born Alive Infant Protection Act: Barack Obama voted against and blocked legislation that would have protected infants who were born alive following an unsuccessful abortion (he took a leadership role to kill it). Then he misrepresented his record. Obama called Gianna Jessen, an abortion survivor, a despicable liar after being presented with the truth about his failure to protect babies born alive.

8. Freedom of Choice Act: Barack Obama co-sponsored and supports the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), a radical legislative attempt to enshrine abortion-on-demand into American law, to sweep aside existing laws that the majority of Americans support and to prevent states from enacting protective measures in the future (more here). Obama promises as his number one prior to sign FOCA into law. [note: Americans United for Life (AUL), a pro-life law and policy organization, has prepared an analysis of the "Freedom of Choice Act". Sign the fight FOCA peition here.]

9. Supreme Court: Obama vows to nominate Supreme Court justices that support Roe v Wade. Obama voted against the highly qualified Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito.

10. Radical Pro-Abortion: Obama is the most pro-abortion President and rejects of the God-given intrinsic dignity of human life. Obama's only Harvard Law Review article took a pro-abortion stance.

11. Assault on Life: Immediately after his election, Barack Obama's assault on human life began with the identification of executive orders that could be reversed to support abortion and embryonic stem cell research. Barack Obama has confirmed that he will overturn a pro-life policy of President Bush on his first day in office and fund foreign abortions with US tax dollars. [visit the FRC to take action today]

Article I'm Still Working On

Please, please comment.
I'm still working on this one... Any suggestions? I'm probably going to add some pics from the Walk For Life, once it happens...

"A person is a person, no matter how small." said Theodore Seuss Giesel (1904-1991), a well know American writer and cartoonist. He was commonly known by his pen name, Dr. Seuss.

In response to the April 18 U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, prominent Democratic members of Congress the next day reintroduced the so-called "Freedom of Choice Act" (FOCA), a proposed federal law to nullify virtually all federal and state limitations on abortion.

What is partial birth abortion?

Partial-birth abortion is exactly what the term infers.

Intrauterine cranial decompression (commonly known as Partial Birth Abortion):
The procedure is usually performed during the last trimester of gestation up to the end of the ninth month. The woman's cervix is dilated, and the abortionist grabs the baby's leg with forceps. Then he proceeds to pull the baby into the birth canal. The abortionist then delivers the baby's body, feet first, all but the baby's head. The abortionist inserts a sharp object into the back of the baby's head, removes it, and inserts a vacuum tube through which the brains are sucked out. The head of the baby collapses at this point and allows the aborted baby to be delivered lifelessly.

Can we deny that this is a baby? Can we allow this to happen?

We already have. The war for lives of millions of babies has already begun.
In electing Barack Obama, under the office of President of the United States of America (January 20, 2009), Mr. Obama told Planned Parenthood that: "The first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing I'd do."
The so-called "Freedom of Choice" act will:
1) Do away with state laws on parental involvement, on partial birth abortion, and on all other protections.
2) Compel taxpayer funding of abortions.
3) Force faith-based hospitals and health-care facilities to perform abortions.
Barack Obama believes this legislation will "end the culture wars."

"Though Obama is pro-choice, we are in the worst recession we've ever been."

Though it may be true, we are in a very tight situation with the economy; is this more important then a child's life? During the course of the year, over 1.2 million babies die. This is mass murder and it needs to stop. A child's life is the most important thing given to us by God. Life is to precious to be thrown away so easily. What factors are so important that human life can be sacrificed to them?

Excerpt from a conversation that two of my friends and I had:
Person1: Now, there are various ways to keep people alive.
Good health care, good foreign policy, plenty of money, and no abortion.
Person2: I would say no abortion, good health care, and good foreign policy
Person1: Without money, how can we have food?
Person2: Without people to feed, what's the point of having food? You can build pretty nifty structures out of broccoli and toothpicks, but that gets really boring after a while.

"Many are dying out on the street. This is life, and it's just as precious and important."

Yes, the lives of the homeless people are lives, too, and are just as important as the lives of the baby. However, this person has a chance in life. He has a chance in life, however. These babies haven't got a chance. People born have voices. The babies in the womb, cannot protest. They are slaughtered, and cannot help themselves.

We must try to be their voice.
