And that's how silly you sound to value-life people. Barack Obama is deeply committed to the belief that
  1. members of an entire class of human beings have no rights that others must respect

  2. the smallest and most vulnerable members of the human family can be denied the basic protection of the laws

  3. judges should be appointed who will support Roe v. Wade and even expand it

  4. the grisly practice of partial-birth abortion is moral and right

  5. a baby who survives abortion is not entitled to comfort care as she dies

  6. making moral decisions about life "is above my pay grade"

  7. the production of human embryos for use in scientific experimentation is not immoral

  8. federal money to fund an alternative to embryonic stem cell research should be opposed.
All the above have been documented in his voting record.

Christians who think Obama's social policies will reduce the demand for abortion need to look again. Government never reduces poverty--it just expands the definition and broadens the base, taxing you more so there's less of a gap. We have far more programs in place than ever existed in the 1960s and 1970s, yet the abortion carnage continues in the millions in spite of welfare, WIC, S-CHIP, housing subsidies, school breakfasts, school lunches, summer lunches, Medicaid and a multitude of religious and non-profit organizations.

If poverty is the reason for abortions, maybe Obama could explain why so many rich white girls abort their babies.
