Media, Obama Afraid of Abortion Issue

There have been a number of articles asking why the abortion issue has yet to find its way into the debates. I am amused that people are not stating the obvious. Barack Obama does not want to talk about his radical abortion position. After his performance at Saddleback where he dismissed the issue as “above his pay grade” and suffered a very public and negative reaction to that remark, after he selected Joe Biden, a so-called Catholic with a horrible pro-abortion voting record, and after the remarks of Nancy Pelosi who in simple terms told the bishops to mind their place, Barack needs to stay far away from that very volatile issue.

If you recall Barack tried to approach the religious segments of this country by talking about his faith and that he was a Christian. He hoped to smooth talk past the issues and hope Christians would feel that he was sincere and nice and cared. It has had the requisite effect thus far. He polls well among those who think that he is religious. Well, I am sure that the Reverend Wright is religious. But then so were the Pharisees. They were religious and laid out the law. Yet the words of the Gospel speak to care and concern for all innocent human life. How one can claim to follow the Gospel and believe that killing babies is no big deal, is beyond my comprehension. Yet that is Barack Obama’s argument.

He asks people to believe in “change.” Yet the “change” he proposes will result in more dead babies.

He wants to end one war he claims, only to ignite another within the womb of America.

He wants us to ignore his friends and supporters who have committed terrorist acts against the United States, but he would unleash the terror of Planned Parenthood into our nation’s barrios and ghettos to “weed” out the “less than fit,” the “less than perfect,” those who are a “burden to the nation.” After all the motto of Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was to “create a race of thoroughbreds.”

So the media will not mention the subject of abortion. The media does not want the Hispanic, Latino, Mexican, Cuban, Filipino Puerto Rican communities discussing Obama’s support for abortion, for homosexual entitlements, for the privatizing of religion. He does not want you to know that he holds your faith in contempt.

These may seem like harsh words. But Barack Obama has people who support him who would destroy the Catholic Church if they could. Barack Obama has supporters who hate the Catholic Church and all it holds as sacred. And believe me if you think that economy is in trouble today, wait until the socialists who make up Barack’s economic team get through with it.

So the press will not discuss abortion, especially not after it saw how the public reacted to the “above my pay grade remark.” The press does not want to talk about infanticide and how Obama voted against protecting born infants who survive abortion. The press does not want to talk about his support for the Freedom of Choice Act and including abortion in universal health care insurance. The press wants everyone to feel that he is the one who can help them out of the current situation.

Our friends on Talk radio have got to raise the three most important values issues and remind the American people of the stark differences between the two candidates.

THE LIFE ISSUES – Abortion, infanticide and euthanasia.

McCain is Pro-life. He opposes abortion on demand. He knows that a human being’s life begins at conception. He will appoint judges who will respect the right to life as stated in the Declaration of Independence. He will appoint judges who will respect the rights of the people.

Obama is pro-abortion. He supports abortion on demand through the entire nine months of pregnancy. He opposes any laws that would restrict abortion in any way. He supports a federal law to wipe out all of the state restrictions and parental consent laws passed throughout the U.S. He will appoint judges who will enshrine abortion into the constitution. He wants universal heath care including abortion paid for by taxpayer dollars.


McCain supports the traditional definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. He voted for the Defense of Marriage Act and supports states enacting protection for marriage. He opposes redefining marriage to include homosexual unions.

Obama voted against the Defense of Marriage Act. He wants to repeal it. He supports same sex marriage and opposes the right of the people to define marriage as being between q man and a woman.


McCain believes in parental rights to control and direct the education of one’s children without the interference of the state. McCain believes in school choice, in vouchers, in charter schools, and in those innovative ways to allow parents the freedom and opportunity to obtain for their children the best education possible. He wants to change the status quo and allow especially poor and working class families grater accessibility to good school.

Obama opposes school choice. He wants government schools to have the control. He opposes any efforts by parents to direct and control their children’s education. The teacher’s union and the government are in charge. He was a part of a radical effort to indoctrinate children in the public schools with his buddy Bill Ayers. He opposes tax credits, tuition vouchers or anything that would expand opportunities.

So on the values issues, there is only one candidate who truly cares about the family, marriage, children. His name is John McCain.

Now is not the time to be faint of heart. We must encourage others to get out the vote for the one man who will stand up and defend life. – John McCain.

I was looking for bloggers who support McCain to link to and I found you. I was going to link to your thoughts, but it seems like you've gone a bit overboard with your criticisms of Obama in that some of the stuff you posted just isn't true.

Obama is pro-choice, but I wouldn't say he is pro-abortion. He has introduced verbiage into the Democrats position to reduce the # of abortions. semantics? maybe.

As for Gay Marriage, Obama and McCain have the same position on that. They both are for civil unions and equal rights, and they both define marriage as between a man and a woman.

As a brother in faith, I definitely appreciate your support of life, and I stand with you in hoping that abortion goes the way of the dodo. But you need to be careful not to go overboard with your claims because you can invalidate your legitimate points.

thanks John!

The problem that can't be semantically explained away is the complete disconnect between Obama's rhetoric (more like empty propaganda) and his beyond absolutist pro-abortion (not merely "pro-choice") record. Not only did he block Illinois's version of the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act (identical to the later federal one, except for the word "Illinois," and passed unanimously by the US Congress), but he then claimed that pro-life organizations who exposed this were "lying." In fact, it was he was lying, apparently with the expectation that the legislative paper trail would not reveal the truth. (And -- surprise!!! -- he still hasn't admitted the truth or apologized.)

Please read Mona Charen's column of September 19 (available on RCP or JWR) for more details.

I think you are very confused about your understanding on Obamas record on abortion. He is not just pro- choice, but pro- abortion (no difference). Lets say there is a difference, this man Has a 100% approval record from all the pro abortion groups, has one of the most liberal voting records in the senate on abortion. Would not even vote yes on a bill that would give care and medical attention to babies that would survive an abortion.I'm sorry thats a very radical postion to take. John is not overboard on his criticism of Obama.
