A Tale of Two Presidents, UPDATED

Yesterday marked the 36th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade and thousands–upwards of 225,000—flocked to our nation’s capital for the 2009 March for Life.  The turnout was huge, as it is each year.  It is amazing to see so little coverage of such a large gathering of people devoted to such a cause—one is hard-pressed to find more than a passing sentence in the media of this event. 

And today, in one of his first acts as President, Obama revoked the Mexico City policy, which prohibits US tax dollars from going toward groups that provide and promote abortions oversees.  Here is what Obama had to say about his decision: 

“On the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters,” said Obama. “I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose.”

See, that’s the funny thing about the liberal mindset:  They think the government should intrude in each and every aspect of the citizenry’s lives EXCEPT where it would serve to protect and defend millions of innocent lives.  The only place where they don’t want government involved is the one place it could effectively eliminate the sickening destruction of babies in the womb.

Abortion is not a matter of privacy, contrary to what pro-abortion people attest.  It is a matter of natural law:  One does not have the right to take the life of another.  Abortion is not necessarily a religious issue, either.  A good atheist realizes the fallacy and the destructive nature of abortion.  Apparently, our 44th president does not. 

Contrast Obama’s statement to that of George W. Bush’s to the crowds in Washington yesterday via telephone:

You believe, as I do, that every human life has value, that the strong have a duty to protect the weak, and that the self-evident truths of the Declaration of Independence apply to everyone, not just to those considered healthy or wanted or convenient.  These principles call us to defend the sick and the dying, persons with disabilities and birth defects, all who are weak and vulnerable, especially unborn children.

This reminds me again why I’m proud to have supported President Bush.  The man was committed to promoting a culture of life.  I cannot and do not support President Obama, and frankly, I think his stance on abortion is an embarrassment to modern civilization and an age that should know better.  Those people who support such a heinous practice–even those who support it by proxy by voting for those who support it—will be looked upon as fools in the fullness of time, just as we look back in horror at the Nazi regime and its extermination of the Jewish people.  As the president of the March for Life, Nellie Gray, said in a statement when asked what she wanted Obama’s first impression of the pro-life movement in America to be:

 “I definitely want him to see that Americans are telling him that this is our country, and our country does not kill innocent human beings.  And now we are at the point of killing 50 million innocent human beings – that’s genocide. The reason for the March for Life is to assure that in history no one will be able to say, ‘Why didn’t those people stand up and do something?'” 

I think that to say that abortion is all about “choice” is to gloss over the fact that the child has no choice in the matter.  It sounds so benign and fair to say you support “a woman’s right to choose.”  People who have not thought about the realities of abortion hide behind that statement.  People who have not truly examined the issue from every single point of view hide behind that statement.  And people who simply cannot face up to the brutal reality of abortion hide behind that statement.  

Pray for the heart of our president to change on this issue.

  1. thank you so much for posting this. i see the anniversary of roe v. wade as a time of mourning. this is recent. i used to think of the abortion issue very abstractly. my teachers told me, this is a divisive issue– there is nothing you can do.

    i don’t believe them anymore.
    abortion horrific! and with the other orders Obama signed, now terrorists have more rights than unborn children. lovely.

    thank you thank you–

  2. Lindy you are correct on everything you just said. Unfortunately our fearless leader isn’t going to do the right thing because he believes he is right and we are wrong. Now this man claims to be a “christian”, and he wants to do the right thing by giving women the right to choose, to choose the right to commit murder. Why? Because it’s their body. It’s my body so i have the rright to smoke pot i have the rright to drive drunk i have the rright to sell my body as a prostitute. President Obama will not change his mind because he believes in rright and wrong not good and evil. Remember he once said, “I don’t want my daughters to be punished with a baby”, now where do you think his heart is on the issue? I cannot pray for this man to change but i can pray for the country to be spared God’s wrath if that is even possible. You see, he (Obama) may think abortion is wrong and in his moral conscience that is ok(it’s like saying oh it was wrong to kick the dog, but it’s not evil) but if you think abortion is evil as I believe it is, then you have a problem. Liberals don’t believe in good and evil unless you’re talking about christians and conservatives: now they are evil. Yeah, we are evil because we love life and they love death.

  3. Twisted thinking is rampant. I’m pro life and I think abortion is murder. But under FOCA legislation, I will be forced to pay for abortions, and help perform them if I’m a health care worker. There is no freedom of choice here.
