The audacity of Death

I listened to two sermons this past weekend on the elections. One was John Hagee - the other was my friends pastor. Both came down on ONE POINT - Do not EVER vote FOR abortion. Neither one of these pastors mentioned which candidate to vote for, but just vote the Bible. When someone says to me that they are "pro-choice but not pro-abortion", I view that as dishonest. If you're "pro-choice", I guess you think it's okay for people to "choose" to murder, rape, steal, or whatever laundry list of crimes/sins you can come up with. If you can tolerate the slaughter of an innocent child, then surely you can tolerate anything. Maybe we should just make everything legal and let society run amok.

It seems to me that the pro-life position would eradicate the problem. If we had more respect for all life and for God Almighty who gives life (and is the only One who has the right to take it), we wouldn't be in the sad shape we're in now.

The Obama camp knows if they do not get enough Christians to vote for him he will likely lose the election. This is why he is proclaiming his Christianity constantly. Words are cheap... actions prove the man. Obama's actions have consistently come down against Christian principles. He tries to paint a pretty picture but there is nothing pretty about killing babies.

McCain, by contrast, does not proclaim his beliefs - he exudes them - he lives them as best he can. He does not have to tell us he is a Christian.

According to Barack Obama, Gianna Jessen shouldn't exist.

Miss Jessen is an exquisite example of what antiabortion advocates call a "survivor." Well into her third trimester of pregnancy, Gianna's biological mother was injected with a saline solution intended to induce a chemical abortion at a Los Angeles County abortion center. Eighteen hours later, and precious minutes before the abortionist's arrival, Gianna emerged. Premature and with severe injuries that resulted in cerebral palsy. But alive.

Had the abortionist been present at her birth, Gianna would have been killed, perhaps by suffocation. As it was, a startled nurse called an ambulance, and Gianna was rushed to a nearby hospital, where, weighing just two pounds, she was placed in an incubator, then, months later, in foster care.

Gianna survived then, and thrives now, because, as she told me recently with a laugh, "I guess I don't die easy." Which is what the abortionist might have thought as he signed his victim's birth certificate. Gianna's medical records state that she was "born during saline abortion."

As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama twice opposed legislation to define as "persons" babies who survive late-term abortions. Babies like Gianna. Mr. Obama said in a speech on the Illinois Senate floor that he could not accept that babies wholly emerged from their mother's wombs are "persons," and thus deserving of equal protection under the Constitution's 14th Amendment.

When I asked Gianna to reflect on Mr. Obama's candidacy, she paused, then said, "I really hope the American people will have their eyes wide open and choose to be discerning. . . . He is extreme, extreme, extreme."

I already knew I didn't trust the man, but whoa, what an eye opener. Go figure that real press coverage comes in the Wall Street Journal. If he gets elected, I wonder how long it will be untill murder is legalized?
