I read this article (see link at the end of this diary) today and it made me angry, sad, worried, and frustrated to varying degrees. I cannot believe that this country has strayed so far from its values that we cannot recognize something that is truly evil. It shouldn’t matter whether you are white, black, brown, etc. It shouldn’t matter, also, if you are a conservative, liberal, or in-between. On this one issue there shouldn’t be any debate. And yet, unbelievably, there is. It is the issue of babies that are born alive following unsuccessful abortions and whether they deserve the same human rights that we all are guaranteed in the constitution. The answer is an obvious YES! End of story. Whether you are pro-life or pro-choice, this is NOT something that should be up for debate. And yet, as unbelievable as it sounds, the democrat nominee for president has voted not once, not twice, not even 3 times! No, Obama has voted 4 TIMES AGAINST legislation that would protect and guarantee babies, living breathing human beings, the right to medical care to save their lives. By virtue of his actions, Obama is not only pro-choice, he is NOW pro-death. As shocking and disgusting as it seems to be, his vote cannot be explained away or interpreted in any other way. And yet he wants me to trust him with my security and my family’s security should he become president? How can any thinking, caring, HUMAN BEING be so cold-hearted and so terribly misguided to vote this way? He must not have a soul to cast his vote this way and to deny a living, breathing baby medical care. As harsh as that sounds, there is no other way to explain his actions.
I am obviously a resident of Illinois. I live near the hospital that is mentioned in the article. I am saddened and sickened to know that this takes place in a Christian hospital. Where is our soul as a country? Why isn’t there more outrage on this particular topic? How can nearly half of the voters be seriously considering Obama as their next president? I fear for the future of our nation if this is indeed the direction and the “change” Obama wants and the liberal Dems are pushing for. I have blogged here, numerous times, about Obama’s public service legacy here in Illinois. How our unemployment is way above the national average and job creation is near the bottom compared to the other states. I have written about his ties with radical (racist) preachers, 60’s radical terrorists, and jailed business associates. How he is a product of the corruption that IS Illinois government. Yet, his vote on this topic I have found to be even more troubling. He is obviously a man with very serious issues when it comes to protecting human life. His actions, his past voting record, and his close association with people who hate our country (or hate people with certain skin pigmentation) should be setting off alarm bells all across this country. And yet, as I said before, nearly half of the voters in this country believe that this is the type of person they want as the next president of the U.S. Yes, I am very concerned for the future of this great country.
