Obama's Heart of Darkness

The lack of coverage and investigative reporting of Barack Obama's public record by the mainstream media is austere to say the least. The record in question concerning Obama was while he was recently in the Illinois legislature in 2001. There the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, or BAIPA which a baby born alive after a botched abortion would be given medical treatment to live, was vigorously opposed by Obama. Basically Obama advocated that a baby die in the hospital room without being given medical attention. This is in direct violation of the Fifth Commandment, You Shall Not Kill (Exodus 20:13). Our Christian duty is to help those in most need. Killing is not what a Christian does. Only a man without enough love of God in his heart would openly and blatantly advocate for the death of a precious young tiny human being. A man with possibly having a heart of darkness. We should defend life at every turn. Why would God then pre-ordain each and every one of us to live? Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you...
-- Jeremiah1:5 my frame was not hidden from thee, when I was being made in secret, intricately wrought in the depths of the earth.
-- Psalm 139:15 Each and every one of us were conceived and planned by God Himself. Pope Benedict XVI has called abortion a crime against society and today's gravest injustice. Even with the admonition of those that promote abortion are subject to excommunication (see latae sententiae), even faithful Catholics fall prey to the devil's plea of voting for Obama. The 1974 Declaration on Procured Abortion stated, "The first right of the human person is his life. He has other goods and some are more precious, but this one is fundamental - the condition of all the others." The preeminent issue above all others. Furthermore in Pope John Paul II's 1988 apostolic exhortation, The Vocation and the Mission of the Lay Faithful in the Church and in the World (Christifideles Laici), says: "The inviolability of the person, which is a reflection of the absolute inviolability of God, finds its primary and fundamental expression in the inviolability of human life. Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights -- for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture -- is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition of all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination". All other issues are mute if the right to life is not defended with maximum determination.
Children are a gift from God: Lo, sons are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons of one's youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
-- Psalm 127:3-5 Who then does a Catholic vote for in the 2008 American presidential election? It's easy, definitely not Barack Obama, the man with possibly the heart of darkness. Sources: Holy Bible and Priests for Life

Well said. When I tell people why I am against Obama, I use pretty much the same argument. He thinks its ok to kill children who have survived an abortion attempt. And not only that, he wants to ensure that the women and doctors will always have the option to kill these children. the response I get is "well abortion is just one issue"... these people do not care for the truth.

They put the moral equivalence of abortion on the same level of drilling for oil. They're (many not all) are a product of their state's public school system and poor catechesis (assuming their Catholic).


We need to continue to pray for the end of abortion. That may be the only way to stop it if we are unable to convince hearts and minds.

Perhaps it would be better to pray for the end of rape, incest, endangerment to mothers due to the unborn child, and teenage sex. That seems like it would solve the abortion problem easier. I mean, if we're going to stop abortion, go to the source...
