Infanticide, the Next Frontier">Infanticide, the Next Frontier

By Leon Suprenant | July 7, 2008

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?

I just want to DITTO your remarks. However, It seems that these days "social justice" (whatever that is) trumps abortion, infanticide, and gay marriage as the defining issue among many orthodox, evangelicals, fundamentalists and Catholics.

Unbelievable Kmiec was dean of a Catholic university. Any body who is the least bit religious cannot possible support a candidate who has zero regard for human life.
Thou shall not kill.
Please vote in November - Thanks!

Excellent question that every one claiming to be a Christian should ask themselves.

Some of us on FR have asked this in posts many times.

No one who calls himself or herself a good Christian and that includes Armstrong Williams and most certainly J C Watts could sanely, possibly aid and abet the murder of defenseless humans.
