Obama's Abortion Extremism

"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."

Read the rest of this remarkable article here, and then you decide whether you think he will value your life, or that of your loved one.

Does anyone with so little regard for an unborn infant, or one who survives abortion, have the capacity for caring for other human life? How long will it be until age becomes a deciding factor as to whom will receive life-saving measures in the event of a serious illness? If the precious life of an infant can be treated so cavalierly, will euthanasia for the masses be far behind?

Perhaps, you may think that my words are extreme, that I am over-reacting to unfounded fears, but consider this man about whom we know very little. What we do learn about his past and his character, is smoothed over and explained away, and much that is discovered is barely touched upon by mainstream media, if at all. If any other candidate had in his or her past, the unsavory acts and associations that Senator Obama has had, they would never have gotten out of the gate, much less inches away from the most powerful position in the free world.

What the statesman is most anxious to produce is a certain moral character in his fellow citizens, namely a disposition to virtue and the performance of virtuous actions.

I'm afraid that Senator Barack Obama in no way measures up to those words.

If you are not afraid by now, you should be.
