The Most Extreme Pro-Abortion Political Candidate In American History: Barack Obama

It amazes me how any "genuine" follower of Christ, whose heart truly has been changed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ can even consider voting for Barack Obama, much less actually do it. And yes, you should probably read into that comment that I doubt someone who could vote for Barack Obama is actually a follower of Christ, just as I seriously doubt if Barack Obama is a follower of Christ. And yes, Roland Martin, it is quite biblical to question someone else's profession of salvation. (I'll post on this later in the week--too tired to do it now and too distracted since the Red Sox just took another drubbing!)

Justin Taylor has a great post which links to a recent article by Robert P. George on Senator Obama being the most pro-abortion political candidate in American history. You can read the entire article here and I suggest you do, but the blurb below is a good snapshot and spot on.

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 laws. 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.

In the end, the efforts of Obama’s apologists to depict their man as the true pro-life candidate that Catholics and Evangelicals may and even should vote for, doesn’t even amount to a nice try. Voting for the most extreme pro-abortion political candidate in American history is not the way to save unborn babies.
