President Obama and Abortion

        President Barack Obama is impressive in many ways. He is articulate, charming, intelligent, and personable. It is easy to become mesmerized by his smooth words and friendly smile. However, the fact remains that President Obama is the most pro-abortion President in our nation's history.

        As a United States Senator, Obama had a 100% pro-abortion voting record. He even co-sponsored the Senate version of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), which would repeal the ban on partial birth abortion and do away with nearly every restriction on the awful practice. It would also allow pregnant teens to have an abortion without parental notification, eliminate waiting periods, and pressure medical staffs to perform abortions even if they are pro-life. Obama told a Planned Parenthood group in 2007, "The first thing I'd do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act." 

        As President, Obama lifted a ban that prohibited giving federal money to international groups that perform or promote abortion, appointed numerous abortion activists to important positions, and recently issued a statement in commemoration of the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade that reaffirmed his commitment to abortion rights. As Albert Mohler correctly noted, "The President's statement included not one word that indicated any recognition that abortion is in any case or in any sense a tragedy. There was not even a passing reference to the unborn child. President Obama did not even use the language used disingenuously by President Bill Clinton--the pledge that abortion should be 'safe, legal, and rare'" (In His Own Words: A Radical Pro-Abortion President).   

        It has been said that words are merely vessels on which the thoughts of the heart travel. If that is so, perhaps the words of Obama at a town hall meeting during the last campaign reveal his true feelings about unwanted babies. He told the crowd that he would not want his daughters "punished with a baby." Compare that to Psalm 127:3.

        As I said... the most pro-abortion President in our nation's history.
