Obama Flunks Rick Warren's Abortion Question
by Deal W. Hudson
Here's a truism: If you're running for President, don't answer a question by saying, "That's above my pay grade." After all, if you want to occupy the White House, there is no higher pay grade. You are the boss, and the buck stops with you.
But Barack Obama used precisely that expression when asked by Rick Warren at what point "a baby gets human rights." Obama said, "Whether you're looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity . . . is above my pay grade."
How can a man who has voted three times on the Born Again Infant Protection Act be unable to answer that question with "specificity"? Does he mean that he voted against BAIPA without having an answer to that question? But then what did he base his vote on?
Obama made the telling mistake of pitting the truths of science against the truths of theology. He seems to think there are two truths in contradiction to each other. And his implication is clear: Theology teaches life begins at conception, but science sees it differently.

I thought Obama was much more cunning than that.
I’m beginning to think that, because of a lifetime spent in the company of far-out lefties, Obama discovered that there’s such a thing as a pro-lifer only recently—and he’s never really talked to one. And he’s not very bright.
Obama admits he doesn't know - fine. So how does he justify ending what may be life?
Science sees it differently?
I saw a thread about how science has proved through DNA testing, that a human exists at the time of conception, as a distinct, separate, human being.
Are they being as obtuse as Obama? He was clearly making a reference to God, but being careful not to name Him for fear of infuriating his base.
The Buck Stops at some higher pay-grade
(Just where does it stop? The editorial board of the New York Times?)
Obama has core beliefs, and he’s smart enough to know that he can’t be honest about them.
Everyone seems to forget that in 2004 Obama said the Pesidency is above his pay grade.

I would love to see McCain use this in an ad, with a simple I’m John McCain and I agree with and approve this message.
And if that baby's born again, Obama will let that baby be killed again.
How long before some pro-abort comes out and says that surviving abortion doesn't count as an actual birth, i.e., the baby wasn't really born, just removed from womb, and is still subject to the mother's "wishes".
I am seeing a lot of congruence between Obama’s behavior and thinking, and the thinking of a radical, West-hating Muslim. E.g. kill the infidel children (abortion). Unrestricted immigration into the Lands of War (Dar al-Harb). etc.
Look up Princeton professor Peter Singer - he is very concerned about animal rights, but would not deem a newborn baby outside the wome a “person” until about a month or so after birth.
We’re already well down the slippery slope.
wome = womb
Your comment says it all..
That should be "Born Alive...
Boxer, in the Senate record, states that the baby isn’t really a baby until “maybe when they take it home”.
Obama, on the Illinois Senate floor, stated that this (BAIPA) bill would be “to much of a burden on the woman”.
Your hypothetical is not hypothetical.
OH, don’t put it past them.
The left despises Christians a lot!
If he medical definition of death is the absence of brainwaves and a heartbeat, than the definition of life is the presence of brainwaves and a heartbeat.
