A Washington Post article by Michael Gershon notes that Obama has EXTREME views on abortion. In reading remember.......Roe vs Wade is not in danger (for those who support choice) so Obama's EXTREME views MUST be noted:
"But Obama's record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion -- a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called "too close to infanticide." Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed that he would not want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" because of a crisis pregnancy -- hardly a welcoming attitude toward new life.
"Abortion is an unavoidable moral issue. It also has broader political significance. Democrats of a past generation -- the generation of Hubert Humphrey and Martin Luther King Jr. -- spoke about building a beloved community that cared especially for the elderly, the weak, the disadvantaged and the young.
The advance of pro-choice policies imported a different ideology into the Democratic Party -- the absolute triumph of individualism. The rights and choices of adults have become paramount, even at the expense of other, voiceless members of the community."
If we realize that Roe Vs Wade is not going to go away anytime soon then we can get to the heart of the abortion issue for most Americans. Women already have the right to choose so what are some facts on this issue?
Obama views a teen pregnancy as a PUNISHMENT IF a girl CHOOSES life for her child.
Obama voted PRO partial birth abortion. (One of the times he ACTUALLY VOTED!)
Obama OPPOSES the right to care for aborted babies that LIVE.
Obama believes YOU and I should pay for abortions for those women who can't afford them.
Now we have some clear FACTS about Obama and his version of choice for WOMEN and the unborn. You may find women that are prochoice (proabortion in some circles), but you rarely find a woman that supports the FACTS I mentioned above. Most SANE and MORAL american's (and not just on the right) view a life born as ALIVE and therefore worthy of being kept that way. Obama supports INFANTICIDE. Don't we call that murder?
Those are FACTS that can't be denied.
