President-elect Obama, the abortion president, will soon take office on January 20, 2009. Indeed, this will be an excruciatingly painful day for America. During his campaign, Mr. Obama voiced his full support for the killing of our unborn sisters and brothers by abortion. In fact, he even went so far as to say that a child who survived an abortion should be left to die, not resuscitated. Ouch!
An article by Peter J. Smith, LifeSiteNews.com, June 10, 2008, reported that President-elect Obama’s first priority as president would be to “sign the Freedom of Choice Act,” a statement made in a speech to abortion supporters of Planned Parenthood’s Action Fund.
The Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) is legislation Obama has co-sponsored that would end all state laws limiting or regulating abortion, including the federal ban on partial birth abortion. It would also terminate informed consent laws, waiting periods, and health safety regulations for abortion clinics.
According to the same article, the 2007 version of FOCA proposed: "It is the policy of the United States that every woman has the fundamental right to choose to bear a child, to terminate a pregnancy prior to fetal viability, or to terminate a pregnancy after fetal viability when necessary to protect the life or health of the woman."
“America has made her ‘choice’ for maximum leader and it is not pretty", said Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, president, Human Life International. In fact, it is one of the most devastating blows to American civilization that we have ever undergone, and I do not speak in hyperbole. He then quoted Mother Theresa: a nation that kills its children has no future.
I ask for God’s Mercy and love upon our undeserving nation. We proudly rejected God and have chosen abortion-president-elect Obama. Indeed, January 20, 2009 will be an incredibly sad day. Have mercy on us, Lord. We have sinned against you.
