Obama's Words and Opinions

Does it matter who is elected President? Here is an excellent article. The Obama political machine scolds John McCain for voting 97% of the time for issues that President Bush wanted passed. After reading this article I must agree that anyone who respects the life that God has given them would have voted 97% or more with President Bush's initiatives.

The Born Alive Infant Protection Act was first introduced in the Illinois legislature in 2001 after nurse Jill Stanek
revealed that babies born alive in Christ Hospital in botched abortion procedures were left to die, unattended by medical personnel. Read the following to learn Barak Obama's actions regarding the bill. Remember he is a Senator from Illinois.

Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King Jr., understood how the right to life is fundamental. “I and my deceased children are victims of abortion,” she has said. “The Roe v. Wade decision has adversely affected the lives of my entire family. I pray often for deliverance from the pain caused by my decision to abort my baby.”

This article includes quotes from Barak Obama such as: “Whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the Equal Protection Clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a child, a 9-month old child that was delivered to term,” he said. “That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place.” I respectfully say to the Honorable Senator from Illinois, "So what's your point?"

Barak Obama is taking up the mantle from Ted Kennedy for Universal Health Care, unless of course you are a "pre-viable fetus" or perhaps disabled to the point of being totally incapacitated. We are so over whelmed by issues of the day. News comes at us quickly and then we forget since we have new problems with which to deal.

Do you recall Terri Schiavo? Her family wanted her to be maintained within a nursing home until she died a natural death. Her husband wanted her dead as after suffering a stroke, cardiac and respiratory arrest she became severely brain damaged and was unable to do anything but breath. Her feeding tube was removed and liquids withheld. She died 14 days later of starvation and dehydration.

This article contains Barak Obama's response to the Schiavo Bill when it came before the US Senate. In my humble opinion it hints at how unprepared he was as a junior Senator.

Think of the consequences before you vote.
