Obama vs. pro-lifers

An article by a former abortionist nurse who repented after watching a live birth abortion baby die...
Obama insinuated opposition to abortion is based only on religion, lecturing pro-lifers like me to "explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all."

I don't recall mentioning religion when I testified against live-birth abortion. I only recall describing a live aborted baby I held in a hospital soiled utility room until he died, and a live aborted baby who was accidentally thrown into the trash.

Neither do I recall religion being brought into the partial-birth abortion ban debate. I recall comparisons made to U.S. laws ensuring animals being killed are treated humanely. I recall testimony that late-term babies feel excruciating pain while being aborted.

Obama stated pro-life proposals must be "amenable to reason."

OK, Sen. Obama, let's reason. Explain why you support abortion for whatever rationale, at whatever gestation, by whatever means. Explain why you support infanticide, if banning it might interfere with abortion.

Then, since you brought it up, explain how, despite all that, you think Jesus should vote for you, either now or in the hereafter, particularly given His statement, "It would be better to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around the neck than to face the punishment in store for harming one of these little ones."
She includes a political cartoon from the Chicago Sun-Times during Obama's Illinois Senate period when he opposed or held up this bill...

No brilliant comments from me tonight. Just thinking it so sad that we've gotten here at all. So amazing really that people see nothing wrong with aborting babies. A holocaust beneath our noses. I'm still politically confused and maybe always will be, but I applaud you, John, for standing up...for taking advantage of your right to free speech. Your posts are reminging me of things I haven't thought about lately. When I was pregnant with Chelsey, lots of people advised me to have an abortion- the kids I was hanging out with at the time, her biological grandmother, the lady at planned parenthood where I get a pregnancy test. Thank God for a godly mother who supported my decision to keep her! And look at my Chelsey now: straight A's, musical, into missions, bringing friends to church, wearing her "I love Mom" t-shirt in public...
Like you say, "God is good."

Hey man, I just wanted to thank you for engaging in this discussion. I am ashamed to say that during this political election process, I've let my anti-war stance/feelings get in the way of much more important "issues" like abortion.
