Barack Hussein Obama and Abortion

There are many reasons - ethical and well thought-out reasons - that I could never in good conscience vote for any of the Democrats who are currently running for office. Here is just one of the reasons I could never vote for Barack Hussein Obama. From CNSNews:

Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion presidential candidate ever.

He is so pro-abortion that he refused as an Illinois state senator to support legislation to protect babies who survived late-term abortions because he did not want to concede — as he explained in a cold-blooded speech on the Illinois Senate floor — that these babies, fully outside their mothers’ wombs, with their hearts beating and lungs heaving, were in fact “persons.”

“Persons,” of course, are guaranteed equal protection of the law under the 14th Amendment.

I’m as much for equal rights for everyone as anybody could be. In deciding to have an abortion, however, the pregnant woman denies the basic rights of her unborn child. Yes a pregnancy can be quite devastating at times. However, it IS a human being that is killed during an abortion.

I’ve never understood how anyone could deny the person-ness of babies before birth. They have beating hearts when they’re just a few weeks old. I once exercised at a gym where an abortion survivor worked out - preparing for a marathon. Her name is Gianna Jessen, and I wrote about her over two years ago. Read about her experience. Gianna puts a real face to abortion.

If it is wrong to kill a baby after birth, then it is wrong to kill a baby before birth. The Democrats just don’t get it.
