I found this just now and you need to read it. I am sorry for the political nature of this post, and although I won’t reveal my stance on abortion right now on this blog, I believe this is just stupid and I want you to see it.
From an article on cnsnews.com:
“…When he was in the Illinois Senate, for example, he repeatedly opposed a bill that would have defined as a “person” a baby who had survived an induced-labor abortion and was born alive.
In a 2001 Illinois Senate floor speech about that bill, he argued that to call a baby who survived an abortion a “person” would give it equal protection rights under the 14th Amendment and would give credibility to the argument that the same child inside its mother’s womb was also a “person” and thus could not be aborted.”
Now, correct me if I am wrong, but if a baby is alive, isn’t that baby really just a little human being, which is to say, a person? And shouldn’t our laws reflect that truth? At this point, it’s not so much a moral question as it is a rational one.
So what do they do? The abortion failed and now there’s a screaming (insert word here, ’cause according to Obama it ain’t no person). Well, it has no rights so I guess they just continue with the abortion and kill it? What’s wrong with this picture?
According to this, Obama thinks preserving Roe v Wade is more important than making law which reflects real life. Real life. Real… as in right there, in the doctor’s hands, screaming. Denying this miracle (and miracle it is when a baby survives an abortion attempt) seems somehow not only wrong to me, but the accomplishment of a mind capable of any sort of deception required to reach it’s goals.
Mister Obama, in my mind, you are now not a “person”. You are a part of the self-serving mediocrity that is destroying America with short-sightedness and deception, and thinking like that can never help us. A leader who would deny an obvious feature of reality, such as a breathing child, who would deny even just that one living soul their natural and legal rights, is no “leader” I could ever support.
I am Jon, and I am calling Bullicus Shitticus on Obama.
