Barack Obama Statement: Reduce Abortions by Honoring Pro-Abortion Decision
To nobody's surprise, Obama took time on the anniversary of Roe vs Wade to celebrate in the name of "freedom of choice" the deaths of 50 million babies. Obama lauded the Roe decision as one that " not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: That government should not intrude on our most private family matters.”
1. How can you justify killing a child in the name of the mother's "health"? How can you justify messing with a healthy, natural process by means of sharp instruments and harsh chemicals in the name of "health"?
2. Calling abortion "reproductive freedom" is as much a misnomer as calling the gas chamber a "respiratory care center".
3. And if killing your child is a "most private family matter", then we owe John List a big apology, and ought to stop persecuting Caylee Anthony's mother.
So, one of his first acts as POTUS was to drive home that he wants prolifers to join him in celebrating abortion as a good, a right, a just practice.
Not in this or any other lifetime, Mr. Obama. Might I remind you of what you claim is a favorite Scripture -- albeit one you've evidently never actually read, studied, or thought about. Matthew 25. To be specific, Matthew 25:40:
"'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'"
Every child torn to bits with your blessing, Mr. Obama, is one you're going to be called on the carpet for when you meet your Maker. And though Jesus will be standing with you, we won't.
Yeah, we'll have our own sins we'll be accountable for. And we see no reason to add the blood of tens of millions of innocent children to the tally. You're more than welcome to shoulder that burden in the name of "reproductive freedom".
You might also, if you're the Christian you claim to be, re-think your "babies as punishment" paradigm in the light of the Scriptures:
Psalm 127:3 "Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him."
Babies aren't punishment. We're not going to join you in celebrating their destruction as a "freedom". Period. Paragraph.
