Akin vs Obama
I have been trying to avoid this post because of the subject matter. I am actually getting upset writing it, but I just can’t avoid it any longer.
Akin’s comments this week were offensive. They may have been taken partly out of context, have certainly been twisted into a sick campaign issue since, but what he said and how he said it was wrong, wrong, wrong. Why he said it however was not. He is staunchly pro life. Defending the unborn was his motivation. There is nothing wrong with that. Period.
I will not defend his comments – I still believe he should drop out of the race – but I will no longer allow the democrats, especially Nobama to claim the ‘moral’ high ground on an issue where HIS position is INFANTICIDE. Read that again. Then watch the Breibart video of Nobama describing his support for late term abortions and the audio of his defense of partial birth abortions. Then read the full article on national review. It has a more detailed version of the Nurse Stanek’s account. It is not an easy read. It does however expose our President’s Illinois Senate testimony on the matter.
There wasn’t any question about what was happening. The abortions were going wrong. The babies weren’t cooperating. They wouldn’t die as planned. Or, as Illinois state senator Barack Obama so touchingly put it, there was “movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead.”
No, Senator. They wouldn’t go along with the program. They wouldn’t just come out limp and dead.
They were coming out alive. Born alive. Babies. Vulnerable human beings Obama, in his detached pomposity, might otherwise include among “the least of my brothers.” But of course, an abortion extremist can’t very well be invoking Saint Matthew, can he? So, for Obama, the shunning of these least of our brothers and sisters — millions of them — is somehow not among America’s greatest moral failings.
But not Barack Obama. As an Illinois state senator, he voted to permit infanticide. And now, running for president, he banks on media adulation to insulate him from his past. The record, however, doesn’t lie.
Infanticide is a bracing word. But in this context, it’s the only word that fits. Obama heard the testimony of a nurse, Jill Stanek. She recounted how she’d spent 45 minutes holding a living baby left to die.
