.- A new advertisement from the Family Research Councils lobbying arm, FRC Action, cites Sen. Barack Obamas endorsement of fathers who recognize that responsibility doesnt just end at conception to press the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee to defend his stand on abortion.
The 30-second television ad begins with a clip of Obamas Fathers Day speech at a Chicago church in which the Illinois senator discussed the problem of absent black fathers. We need fathers to recognize that responsibility doesn't just end at conception, he says in the clip.
The ad then shows commentary from FRC President Tony Perkins. Holding his squirming son Samuel in his arms, Perkins asks Obama If, as you say, fatherhood begins at conception, when does life begin?
Perkins says that, as a father of five himself, he thanks Obama for promoting fatherhood. Perkins then notes that Obama as a U.S. Senator voted to allocate taxpayer dollars to promote abortion in the United States and overseas.
In the ad the FRC president emphasizes the apparent contradiction between Obamas pro-fatherhood and pro-abortion views, rhetorically asking If I became a father at conception, when did Samuel here become my son?"
The advertisement aired on Friday in several cities across the United States. It is scheduled to be broadcast in Cincinnati and later in Dallas and Atlanta.
Sen. Obama has voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which would have protected from infanticide those children who survive abortion attempts. He has also promised to pass the Freedom of Choice Act, which FRC Action says would annihilate every single state law limiting or regulating abortion, including the federal ban on partial birth abortion.
David Nammo, Executive Director of FRC Action, told CNA that there has been no official reaction to the advertisement from either Sen. Obamas Campaign or the campaign of his Republican opponent, Sen. John McCain.
Nammo said the FRC would like to see Obama acknowledge that life begins at conception and that fatherhood entails responsibility to the unborn. Further, the Family Research Council hopes Obama will renounce his support for taxpayer funding of abortions.
The FRC would also like to see Sen. McCain continue to speak strongly on family-related issues, such as his opposition to Roe v. Wade, Nammo told CNA.
“Human life doesnt start and stop. It has been evolving continuously for millions of years.”
I have a feeling that if I told someone this at a funeral, I’d get the crap beaten outta me.
You’re being sarcastic, right?
Need more ads like this. This is an issue that needs to be pushed. Cold hearted sob.
Oh, there’s fatherhood all right—the question is whether the child will spend the first 60-80 years of his/her life on earth, or in Eternity.
Too many are playing God who otherwise don’t listen to Him.
Most of these “Fathers” are very happy to leave the responsibility to the mother, and good luck getting alimony out of these guys.
Obama did not have much daddy inluence.
That and his kumbaya mom created what he projects on us.
You mean the mom he threw under the bus?
This is a very large issue, but not one that McCain has embraced thus far. We shall surely pay for the deaths of the innocent we have allowed, and Obama has a high price to pay for that so far.
How could anyone kill a child born alive? What kind of monster could make that leap?
Tilly was a great book, as well as Peretti’s other books.
Let’s watch him squirm out of this one. lol... He’ll probably blame it on another staffer. Sadly, he’s one of the worst cases of “the other guy done it” folks I’ve seen in a long time. There is NO accountability with Obama. He takes responsibility for nothing that goes wrong.
What a great AD!

Great idea for an ad. As Wanda from “Corner Gas” would say...”POW!!”
