Since there was confusion last time, I will make certain that no one feels like I am pointing the finger of my words at any one person. However, there are certain people that have fueled my frustration for this issue. Mostly, this would be christians for Obama.
Here is my question for all you Obama folks: How can you support a candidate that has repeatedly voted for the killing of unborn babies?
Does abortion not go against the bible? How is it possible to justify voting for someone who has been so pro abortion? Regardless of if you believe they are a reliable source, the National Right to Life foundation is waging a huge war against Obama because of his participation in voting for bills that decrease restrictions on abortion and allow more government funding for abortion.
Obama has said that he would want an abortion for his two daughters if they became pregnant before marriage. Is he not openly approving of abortion in that statement?
Maybe I am wrong about this, and maybe I am miss interpreting the Bible on this. However, when I see this verse, Psalm 139 13-16, I have a big problem with abortion simply knowing WHAT is being aborted. " For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
I don't know what the policy on abortion should be and I can't tell you when life begins. What I will offer you is this, if you find a bag full of kittens on the side of the road on your way home and you can't tell if they are alive or not, would you chuck them in the river and just kill them? I wouldn't and I HATE cats, but I couldn't justify killing something that had a chance.
as a last minute thing, here are some votes that Obama made in his stint as a lawmaker. I got this from Ontheissues.org.
