Last week Deal Hudson wrote a disturbing piece on Barack Obama’s permissive stance toward infanticide. Click here for the entire text.
Senator Obama’s position on this issue, a position opposed even by the most liberal elements of his party, including California Senator Barbara Boxer, is to date the most extreme anti-life position espoused by a serious candidate for the presidency.
While all murder is murder, the Catechism singles out infanticide as an “especially grave crime” (no. 2268).
This again brings me back to the question I posed here several months ago: What could possibly constitute a “proportionate reason” that would morally justify a vote for Senator Obama?
“The stated aim of this legislation is to end the abortion wars, by allowing abortion-on-demand in all nine months of pregnancy for any reason and without any restrictions nationwide.’
That makes me feel ill.
Stopped reading there.
I have to disagree with this entire paragraph.
That being said, I'm voting for McCain.

An Obama-Rezko primer: Who is Tony Rezko?
A: Antoin Tony Rezko is a millionaire Chicago businessman who has long helped young politicians raise money and make connections. Raised in Syria, he moved to Chicago to study engineering but wound up making money in real estate and fast food. He is now on trial in federal court on mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering and attempted extortion charges.
Speak for yourself, whoever you are.
He does disagree with the founding principals or principles of the country. He needs to equate himself with the events and the hows and whys of writing our Declaration of Independence and writing the Constitution.
I haven't found it at all difficult not to like Obama.
Because of Obama's past votes on the sanctity of life issues, I find it to be a serious sin to vote or support The Obama for President.
