Obama and infanticide
I’m so glad that I am not American
Whilst I have to say that the Republican Party in the USA has made some major strategic errors at a time when they are having to defend the almost indefensible record of George W. Bush, I find that there just too many flaws in the character and policies of Senator Barack Obama, the man who pollsters are overwhelmingly telling us will be the next President of the United States of America.
If I were pushed, and if I were an American, I would have to find an Independent to support at next week’s elections, my Christian conscience could not allow me to support Barack Obama a man who appears to be fully supportive of legalised infanticide.
Please watch this video first
Cranmer raised the issue today, and I believe it deserves a wider public airing, Barack Obama has a record of NOT supporting legislation which would outlaw these procedures. This procedure allows for a very late abortion by inducing labour, whereby in many cases the baby is born alive, breathing, crying, kicking, and yearning for it’s mother’s milk – and is then left, abandoned, cold and hungry, with no intervention until it dies!
This is not a Pro Life issue, nor a woman’s choice issue, which mother would choose to do this to any human being? Nor is it a religious issue, I know of no religion that would purposely instruct it’s followers to allow a baby to die in isolation from it’s mother. Yet in many American states, live abortions are allowed right up until nine months after Senators, such as Obama passed the necessary legislation (or at least failed to actively oppose it.)
Here’s another video featuring the same nurse with a television interviewer
I’m glad Cranmer raised the matter, it is an ethical problem for politicians and doctors to consider, it occasionally happens here with shorter term abortions, yet it seems that doctors and nursing staff are taught or encouraged to put their own feelings and emotions to one side, they are only following the path of the law.
As far as Obama is concerned, he even has doubts about when life begins:
Q: Do you personally believe that life begins at conception?
A: This is something that I have not come to a firm resolution on. I think it’s very hard to know what that means, when life begins. Is it when a cell separates? Is it when the soul stirs? So I don’t presume to know the answer to that question. What I know is that there is something extraordinarily powerful about potential life and that that has a moral weight to it that we take into consideration when we’re having these debates.

See any contradictions there? Moral weight about potential life? What about real life Obama – after the baby has taken it’s first breath?
As we saw in the second video clip, if he’s willing to lie about the positions that he has taken on infanticide as he goes through the election campaign, then he is no position to proclaim that he is the man to bring change to America. He is just another lying politician, like many others who went before him.
I’m glad I’m not American, I’d hate to face the choice, I’d hate to face a future with Barack Obama too.
“I suspect that doctors feel that they would be under that obligation, that they would already be making these determinations, and that essentially adding an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation to come in and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.”
