You Should Know Who You Vote For

My personal political statements on my personal blog (alles klar, IRS?):

Barak Obama, discussing the "burden" or trying to save the life of a baby who was born during a failed abortion, said,

"...and that essentially adding an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation to come in and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion." (unofficial transcript of Barack Obama on the Born Alive Infants Protection Act)

Listen to it here. In his own words.

What's he saying? That a woman, seeking to kill her unborn and failing, the baby coming out of her womb alive is "burdened" by an additional doctor assessing the baby (making sure it is alive) and whisking the baby away to be treated as a human baby. Or an animal, for that matter.

The alternative to trying to save the baby's life is to honor the mother's wishes and let the baby die outside the womb.

This is infanticide and evil.

Think McCain is too liberal? Don't like his Iraq policy? Think he's too old? That we need a new party in there for whatever reason? Don't want to vote for anybody?

Whatever his faults, he does not advocate the murder of babies born alive.

Think about this on election day. Think about what your non-vote or vote against would mean.

Thanks...and my children thank you too.

    Well, you know, it's "above his pay grade". . .

    Amen. Exactly right and well said. I hope people are listening. (I've been saying the same thing on my blog for months now.)

    Though I'm not sure voting for someone whose strategies include the death of innocent civilian life, post-birth, and calling it "collateral damage" reflects a respect of life either.
