Obama, Abortion, Life & Reason – UPDATED

I call heaven and earth today to witness against you: I have set before you life and death, the blessing and the curse. Choose life, then, that you and your descendants may live, by loving the Lord, your God, heeding his voice, and holding fast to him. (Deuteronomy 30:19-20a, New American Bible)

The issue of Obama and Life will likely be written about a great deal today. As I come across thoughtful posts on the issue, I’ll link to them.

My Blogfather Ed Morrissey, whose old Captain’s Quarters Blog inspired me to start this gig (and I’ve never been able to come near to his clean, reasonable, fair and mature standard) invited me to join him in constructing An Open Letter to Our Fellow Catholics on Election Eve. It’s not just for Catholics, of course – hopefully believers of all stripes are paying attention to what an Obama presidency will mean on issues of abortion and euthanasia – but we naturally are writing from our own perspectives. I hope you’ll read it. It’s difficult to excerpt, but I like what the first commenter over at Hot Air had to say: Life Always Wins.

Don’t forget it! Choose life.

Speaking of which – this is a very moving (and very telling) story about John McCain and his respect for life. Don’t miss it. One never sees stories like this about Obama, about extraordinary and quiet kindness.

Patrick O’ Hannigan has written a masterful exposition on reasoning out one’s vote:

Then there is this curious fact: How often have the CEO of Federal Express, the Governor of California, and the President of France agreed with each other? Each of them considers the Democratic candidate out of his depth.


Meanwhile America Papist is beginning his own news show – I love alternative media – and he snagged a great video interview with Archbishop Charles Chaput, “on the issues”. This is one to watch.

More as I find things, so check back…

UPDATE: Deacon Greg has a story you’ll hate reading, but should.

Angelweave has an open letter to all Christians on abortion.
