Obama: the Pro-Death Candidate

Barack Obama is the most extreme pro-abortion candidate ever to seek the office of President of the United States. He is the most extreme pro-abortion member of the United States Senate. Indeed, he is the most extreme pro-abortion legislator ever to serve in either house of the United States Congress.

So says Robert George of Princeton in a recent blog article. To many, that is not surprising. And to most who read this particular blog, you don't need to be convinced of the horror that awaits our nation if this man becomes our President. But George's article is too alarming to pass up. His summary says:

What kind of America do we want our beloved nation to be? Barack Obama's America is one in which being human just isn't enough to warrant care and protection. It is an America where the unborn may legitimately be killed without legal restriction, even by the grisly practice of partial-birth abortion. It is an America where a baby who survives abortion is not even entitled to comfort care as she dies on a stainless steel table or in a soiled linen bin. It is a nation in which some members of the human family are regarded as inferior and others superior in fundamental dignity and rights. In Obama's America, public policy would make a mockery of the great constitutional principle of the equal protection of the law. In perhaps the most telling comment made by any candidate in either party in this election year, Senator Obama, when asked by Rick Warren when a baby gets human rights, replied: ''that question is above my pay grade.'' It was a profoundly disingenuous answer: For even at a state senator's pay grade, Obama presumed to answer that question with blind certainty. His unspoken answer then, as now, is chilling: human beings have no rights until infancy - and if they are unwanted survivors of attempted abortions, not even then.

The rest of George's article spells out the particular votes and legislation Obama is identified with that back up these statements. I urge you to read the whole article here. Again, I'm assuming from past comments that the majority of folks who find this blog, either by accident or on purpose, are no friends to the Obama campaign. But I pray folks will see this information, along with dozens of other alarming stands this man has made, and realize the dark path he wants our nation to take.

I'm still not an all out McCain fan. But I do know this. If Obama is elected it will be on the scale of the judgment God sent on His people through kings like Manasseh who was guilty of sacrificing his own son to a pagan idol (2 Kings 21). God often gave His people the king they deserved, and maybe that's what will happen. But I pray with all my heart that people will see through this man and run the other way as fast as possible!
