Posted on 01/21/2014 4:21:04 AM PST by Kaslin
With the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade this week, it's time to blow the whistle on the greatest advocate of abortion in the modern age: President Barack Obama.
To date, it is still unknown when U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will rule on whether or not Obama and Obamacare will force a group of nuns -- the Little Sisters of the Poor -- to provide contraception, including drugs that possibly induce abortions, to the employees at the care facility for the elderly that they run or be fined because of noncompliance with the new health care law.
What is clearly known, however, is how Obama is using every resource at his disposal -- including Obamacare -- to ensure the expansion and availability of abortion in America and around the world. This past weekend was Sanctity of Human Life weekend, and Wednesday marks 41 years since the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in our country, so it's a good time to remind Americans of Obama's radical abortion agenda.
I echo what I wrote when our country elected Obama as president: We placed a man in the highest office in the land who has the most liberal views and voting record on abortion of any president in American history.
As a state senator in Illinois, he led opposition three years in a row (2001-03) to a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of babies unintentionally left alive by abortion. He also opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion and strongly disapproved of the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. He does not support the Hyde amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding of abortion through Medicaid. He also voted to block a bill that would have required a doctor to notify at least one parent before performing an abortion on a minor girl from another state. Strangely, Obama even once said he would not want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" after an unwanted pregnancy.
And since assuming the presidency, Obama has pushed for a pro-choice agenda in ways that America hasn't seen since the original 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. He overturned the "Mexico City policy," now allowing federal funds to support international family planning groups that provide abortions. Restrictions for federal funding for embryonic stem cell research have been lifted. In addition, Obama appointed two progressive pro-abortion Supreme Court justices -- Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
There is no doubt that Obama is still hellbent on obtaining his crowning abortive achievement: fulfilling his promise to Planned Parenthood execs that he will sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which is a sweeping bill that would abolish all pro-life regulations across the nation, from parental notification laws to bans on federal funding of abortion.
Our president, who once confessed on the campaign trail that estimating when a baby acquires human rights is above his paygrade, has graded human life in the womb as having no rights at all. And he would have no problem proving that by signing into law a piece of health care legislation that would terminate the lives of millions of babies. What doesn't he get about the fact that abortion isn't health care for unborn babies?
Mr. President, it's time for a refresher in the basic value of human life. If estimating life in the womb is above your paygrade, then let me cite a few for whom it is not, as mentioned by my friend and prolific author Randy Alcorn, in his article "Biblical Perspectives on Unborn Children":
"Dr. Jerome LeJeune, genetics professor at the University of Descartes in Paris, states, 'after fertilization has taken place a new human being has come into being.' He says this 'is no longer a matter of taste or opinion. Each individual has a very neat beginning, at conception.'
"Professor Micheline Matthews-Roth of Harvard University Medical School argues, 'It is scientifically correct to say that an individual human life begins at conception.'"
It's so simple even a president can understand it: All human lives -- including those who can't speak for themselves in the womb -- are worthy of life and the unalienable rights from the Creator. And they should be protected by government, not torn apart and discarded.
That is why the Founding Fathers plainly stated in the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."
Obama certainly wasn't joking when he told Planned Parenthood during his presidential campaign that he would "turn the page" on the abortion culture war. Planned Parenthood is the long arm of the government for the abortion industry. In fact, consider that from 2002 to 2008, Planned Parenthood, the largest but not the only abortion agency to receive government funds, received $657.1 million from federal taxpayers alone. In just a single year, from 2008 to 2009, Planned Parenthood received $363.2 million in government grants and contracts -- a $13.6 million increase from the previous year -- which resulted in 324,800 abortions.
All of these pro-abortion actions were taken despite a nationwide survey that revealed that 4 in 5 U.S. adults would limit abortion's legality. More than a third would limit abortion to rape, incest or cases in which it would save the mother's life. And 1 in 3 also would limit abortion to either the first three or the first six months. Only 9 percent said abortion should be legal for any reason at any time during pregnancy.
For more on helping Americans and our society to restore the value of human life in our country, read my New York Times best-seller "Black Belt Patriotism," particularly the chapter titled "Reclaim the Value of Human Life."
Once he was allowed to remain
undocumented (by the Congress),
and allowed to ignore the Constitution
(by the Congress and the BlackRobes),
the Tyrant has become even more lawless and a bully.
Is abortion any less a civil right’s issue than sitting in the front of the bus or having lunch at the drug store counter?
Obama sits at the head of the table because millions demonstrated their opposition to racial discrimination.
Our leadership was once sensitive to such outpourings of popular sentiment. No longer. The largest gathering of citizens in the history of the world turned out in DC to oppose nationalized health care. It was abusively ignored by Congressional leadership.
We must mount a campaign that will shock the conscience of the nation. Sadly, where there is no conscience nothing can bring this result. Perhaps 50 millions infant caskets lining the highways of America, or a line of clothing made from the skin of aborted babies. What? Poor taste? Is infanticide in good taste?
We ust up the ante. Support for abortion must come at a painfully high price.
Zero still doesn’t get it. You don’t mess with an organization titled, ‘Little Sisters of the Poor’.

Thanx for the pix. Very heart warming especially with a caring Pres and First Lady. Unlike the pieces of $hit currently occupying the WH. Too bad these photos don’t go mainstream.
I think you can understand why President Bush is my most favorite President. The next one is President Reagan
