Barack Obama is Pro Abortion

Carl Olson (as usual) neatly parses Barack Obama’s “I’m against abortion but pro-choice” hypocrisy.

Let’s translate this into Nazi propaganda: “I don’t know anybody who is in favor of genocide or ethnic cleansing, but I fully uphold the Nazi party’s right to choose this as a political option.”

    Have you seen Robert P. George’s explanation of why he is moderately pro-choice?”I am personally opposed to killing abortionists. However, inasmuch as my personal opposition to this practice is rooted in sectarian (Catholic) religious belief in the sanctity of human life, I am unwilling to impose it on others who may, as a matter of conscience, take a different view. Of course, I am entirely in favor of policies aimed at removing the root causes of violence against abortionists. Indeed, I would go as far as supporting mandatory one-week waiting periods, and even non-judgmental counseling, for people who are contemplating the choice of killing an abortionist. I believe in policies that reduce the urgent need some people feel to kill abortionists while, at the same time, respecting the rights of conscience of my fellow citizens who believe that the killing of abortionists is sometimes a tragic necessity–not a good, but a lesser evil. In short, I am moderately ‘pro-choice.’”

    pro-choice – what is the choice? Well, we all know, because we here who read this know that the choice is the decision to terminate a pregnancy or politically correctly put, abortion.I made the mistake of following the pro-choice demand for my pregnancy. Now, 37 years later, I am the mother of a child who no longer lives here on this earth. He survived 16 weeks within my womb until I was coerced (like most abortions) to terminate his life. There is little in the pro-choice platform that includes bringing a pregnancy to its natural conclusion – i.e. birth. There is much in the pro-choice platform that is all about death.I would love to talk one on one with Obama or Hillary or any others who are pro-choice. I would love for them to see my empty arms…Alas – their hearts will only be changed through the grace of God and not through any of my words. Pray for an end to abortion.
