Barack Obama Slams John McCain For Opposing Abortion, Activist Judges

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- With pro-life advocates and John McCain's campaign criticizing his position in favor of unlimited abortions, Barack Obama struck back on Thursday. The Illinois senator put forward an absolutist position in favor of abortion and attacked McCain for wanting judges who don't make law from the bench.

"I will never back down in defending a woman's right to choose," Obama said at a breakfast fundraiser with an internal campaign group called "Women for Obama."

"That's what's at stake," Obama added, referring to control of the Supreme Court and whether abortion will remain legal and without limits for another 35 years.

"Senator McCain has made it abundantly clear that he wants to appoint justices like Roberts and Alito -- and that he hopes to see Roe overturned," Obama said, according to an AP report. "I stand by my votes against confirming Justices Roberts and Alito."

Obama is campaigning with his half sister and pro-abortion former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and orchestrating events with women voters who may have supported his formal rival and are upset that he secured the nomination.

During the event, Obama promised to adopt Clinton's position in favor of abortion and promote it as president.

However, Clinton admitted that, for some of her former presidential backers, it may be difficult to get behind Obama in the general election.

"I understand how challenging it is to turn on a dime, to say, 'Close that chapter now, we're on to the next chapter,'" she said. "It is a process, it does take time for people to just take a deep breath and go forward."

Yesterday, the head of a pro-life women's group said Obama's record on abortion is extreme and that it wouldn't go over well with either women or American voters in general.

Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser pointed out how, last week, Obama was trying to make his absolutist position look better.

"Barack Obama knows his extreme record on abortion doesn't resonate with everyday American voters, so now he's trying to soften his image," Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com.

"It won't work. From his active opposition to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act to his support for the radical Freedom of Choice Act, Barack Obama is anything but moderate on abortion," she said.

She explained that, "Obama's abortion-friendly voting record shows his commitment to abortion on-demand, at any time, for any reason, funded by American taxpayers."

THAT is the true Obama speaking, and as such he can no longer profess to be a Christian. Christians don't murder babies. Only godless, evil people murder innocent little babies. May his soul be damned to hell along with those who support and participate in the murder of those poor little babies, unless they repent and forsake this evil.

Waiting for another clarification of support from Doug Kmiec.

Let him talk ..... and talk ..... and talk some more. And when he’s worn out his shovel, we’ll send him some bright shiny new ones so he can talk and dig at the same time.

(Hmmmmm ..... interesting analogy - digging a hole for the little ones and himself at the same time.)

Barack Obama Slams John McCain For Opposing Abortion, Activist Judges.

 

John McCain is the second choice of Republicans for Choice [Murder].[1] John McCain voted to confirm Ruth Ginsberg and Stephen Breyer. A vote for McCain or Obama will be a vote for more judges like Ginsberg and Breyer. John McCain will not use the power of executive review[2] to allow states to prosecute murder.

 

“John McCain supports abortion for babies conceived through rape or incest and is an outspoken supporter of embryonic stem cell research, having voted to extend federal funding for such experiments.” [3]

 

McCain’s credentials as a social conservative have been ripped asunder by his own hand in recent years. While he has maintained a generally pro-life voting record during his tenure in the Senate, it is clear that his intention is merely to regulate or restrict the practice of abortion. “But certainly in the short term, or even in the long term, I would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade, which would then force X number of women in America to (undergo) illegal and dangerous operations,” said John McCain as reported in the San Francisco Chronicle on August 20, 1999. He justifies abortion for babies conceived through rape or incest, a position requiring abortion remain legal. [4]

 Obama & McCain are two sides of the same political coin. Any way you flip it, pro-life loses. Just say NO to JohnBarack-ObamaCain. [5]


[1] http://www.republicansforchoice.com/ We do support Rudy Giuliani's contention that given the folks left in the race after Rudy's withdrawal, McCain would be the best one for the Republican nomination.

 

[2]http://www.boston.com/news/nation/washington/articles/2006/04/30/bush_challenges_hundreds_of_laws/ President Bush has quietly claimed the authority to disobey more than 750 laws enacted since he took office, asserting that he has the power to set aside any statute passed by Congress when it conflicts with his interpretation of the Constitution. Golove said that to the extent Bush is interpreting the Constitution in defiance of the Supreme Court's precedents, he threatens to ''overturn the existing structures of constitutional law."

  

[3] http://www.rnclife.org/faxnotes/2008/jan08/08-01-16.html

 

[4] http://www.rnclife.org/reports/2006/spring/ A Republican victory requires a committed, dedicated, pro-life, philosophical conservative standard-bearer, whose ideas strongly contrast with Hillary’s liberal/socialist world view. John McCain does not fit that description.
