In tonight’s debate, Senator Barack Obama did not tell the truth about his record on abortion. You can watch the exchange above, but the short of it is this. John McCain brought up the fact that Obama refused to support legislation to protect the lives of infants born alive after botched abortions. Obama denied it. Obama’s denial was false. I won’t rehearse all the facts here again. I simply direct you to Robert George’s essay and my previous posts on this subject.
Obamaâ€™s record on abortion is abominable. He refuses to recognize the human rights of an entire class of human beingsâ€”the unborn. As far as Obama is concerned, living persons in the womb and living persons outside of the womb who survive abortions do not have an inalienable right to life.
Obama unequivocally supports the regime of Roe v. Wadeâ€”a decisions which legalized the killing of 50 million babies since 1973. In other words, Obama believes it should be legal to kill babies at any point from 0-9 months gestation, and he also believes that babies who are born alive as a result of botched abortions should not have their right to life protected.
Obama’s rhetoric and tone is that of a moderate, but he is not moderate on this issue. He is the most pro-abortion candidate of all time. And any candidate who will not recognize the right to life of innocent human beings is not qualified to be President.
