I came across this WSJ article from the blog "Between Two Worlds". I know it's uncomfortable to discuss things that are as heated as abortion, which is why I tend to avoid discussing it on my blog. Everyone knows how conservative I am in my beliefs, and I just haven't felt lead to pontificate lately. Except today. Upon reading this article, I am re-energized.
People, Obama is radical. He comes across as gentle and quiet, almost holy, but he's got an agenda. It's not all about "hope". (whatever that means in the political sphere...)
To Mr. Obama, abortion, or "reproductive justice," is "one of the most fundamental rights we possess." 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.
Excuse me? "Reproductive justice"? Oh my.
He has voted against, or abstained from, all limits on abortion. Including those of the worst sort, like partial-birth abortion. And he doesn't believe in recognizing those who survive abortions as persons. He thinks they should be killed! The woman in the article is just such a person. She survived an abortion; Obama would have her dead.
Please read the article. The personal side to the issue is something I think most miss while discussing the merits of abortion.
