A fact not reported by the mainstream media is that President Obama, as an Illinois State Senator, refused to support legislation to give health care to newly born babies who survived botched abortions.
That said, after getting over the shock of such a position, it is not difficult to see his position as the natural outworking of the lack of respect for human life.
President Ronald Reagan said it best:
“Every legislator, every doctor, and every citizen needs to recognize that the real issue is whether to affirm and protect the sanctity of all human life, or to embrace a social ethic where some human lives are valued and others are not.”
By refusing to value the sanctity of all human life, the abortionists clearly embrace a culture of death.
This culture of death brings with it a class of individuals who believe that they are qualified to determine the value of other human lives.
A prime proponent of such dangerous views is so-called “ethicist” Peter Singer, a man the New Yorker called “the most influential living philosopher” and Time magazine named one of the 100 most influential men in the world.
Singer publicly endorses medical experimentation on the mentally disabled, denying care to the elderly, and even denying rights to infants under the age of two.
He believes mothers should have a trial period where they decide whether to keep their baby.
In fact, Mr. Singer actually advocates the slaughter of the unborn and the born up to age two, purely based on whether or not that child may be “inconvenient” or “undesirable.”
Of course abortionists, trying to distance themselves from people like Singer, want to pretend that the life they take when performing an abortion isn’t a human being until he or she is born.
But here’s what they can’t explain:
If, as they claim, an unborn baby isn’t a human being 2 minutes before he or she is born, why should he or she be a human 2 minutes after – or even 2 months after?
The fact of the matter is that there really is no difference.
These babies’ lives are precious from conception onwards. You and I have an obligation to fight for the culture of life.
And as we keep up the fight, I am confident you and I will ultimately succeed.
