A Matter of Life and Death

It's not an overstatement to say that this year's Presidential election is a matter of life and death, especially if Barack Obama is elected. Those at risk are not just the millions protected by our military whom the Illinois Senator would abaondon. It's not just the lives and well-being of millions of middle class Americans who will suffer as those who have to pay for the ridiculous programs he advocates. The most serious issue is literally the life or death of hundreds of thousands as a result of this pro-death activist.

A recent Wall Street Journal article by Daniel Allott called "The Audacity of Death," (a play on Obama's well known theme) says that the record shows Obama as the most pro-abortion person in the Senate, with a 100% pro-death voting record. Further more, Allott says:
As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama twice opposed legislation to define as "persons" babies who survive late-term abortions. . . Mr. Obama said in a speech on the Illinois Senate floor that he could not accept that babies wholly emerged from their mother's wombs are "persons," and thus deserving of equal protection under the Constitution's 14th Amendment.
And he promises, "the first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act," which would overturn hundreds of federal and state laws limiting abortion, including the federal ban on partial-birth abortion and bans on public funding of abortion.
Later, Allott reports:
All this explains why the National Abortion Rights Action League voted unanimously to endorse Mr. Obama over Hillary Clinton, as did abortion activist Frances Kissling, who called Mrs. Clinton "not radical enough on abortion."
He admits his pro-death, anti-child mindset with comments like the one he made regarding not wanting his daughters "punished" with a baby. (See Rod Albert's excellent blog regarding this).
Wake up, folks! This man offers no real hope. Of course, the only real hope is in Jesus Christ, but even apart from that, from a purely national standpoint, this man will literally be the death of hundreds of thousands. If you value life, if you believe a person is a person no matter how small, to steal a phrase, we must vote to oppose men like Barack Obama.
