Punished?

June 21, 2008

Barack Obama: “But if they (Obama’s daughters) make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.”

Let’s keep it going …

Here is another impassioned comment — from someone “out in the trenches” — on the Bill Donahue article at InsideCatholic. These comments are doing a tremendous job in reflecting all of our frustrations as “Catholics” are about to give this Infanticide Candidate the edge he needs to win this election. Truly this is a consequence of silent leadership and poor catechesis over the past four decades. My friends, we have work to do. But, first, we must pray, pray, pray!!!

I suppose you all know all the answers. After all you all have been in the trenches of the pro-life movement of the last 30 years and you have seen where we have been kicked in the teeth by our political friends and taken to court and sued by our enemies. You have tried with every bone in your body to save some girl you don’t even know from killing her baby only to fail and wonder what you could have done different.

Yet you stand in judgment over the mistakes of those who trusted and believed in a better way or a new direction or an incremental approach. Now you curse the political process and demand purity in a world so messed up that the lead story reports that 17 girls made a pact to get pregnant, while the west coast papers gleefully report the onslaught of the next homosexual revolution.

So cast your vote for a third party candidate and feel good about yourself. Help Obama get elected so he can promote abortion worldwide. Ignore what we CAN do and pontificate about how evil Bush and his friends are.

I will not give up. I will support John McCain because while he may not be the perfect candidate, he is far and away the better of the lot. He can get elected, unlike the minor candidates mentioned above. None of them is electable. None of them are serious campaigners. For them it is about ego.

Obama will be a disaster, just as Clinton was a disaster. Two days after Clinton was elected on January 22, 1993, he repealed the Mexico City Policy restricting federal funding of international organizations that work to reverse countries’ abortion laws, reversed Title 10 regulations banning abortion referral by federal employees,negated the ban on funding for fetal tissue transplants, ordered military hospitals to perform abortions, and asked the FDA to “review” the import ban on RU 486.

Clinton nominated Ginsburg and Breyer. Who do you think Obama will select? A pro-abortion liberal pro-homosexual, anti-Catholic judge.

As for the Missouri effort, two more weeks and the pro-lifers would have won. It was a classic case of no one believing we could win and our weakness proving the point. Yet in spite of the nay sayers, they almost pulled it off.

As for the other important issues of the day, how many of them are killing 3600 babies a day? Stop abortion and see the trickle down effect on society. Stop abortion and export the concept of real honest to goodness respect for human life. Stop polluting the womb and maybe people will understand why they should not pollute the environment.

As for pro-life Democrats, please stop telling Republicans how evil they are while my former party continues to have blood on its hands. I remember when the party was taken over by hte pro-abortionists. I also remember how pro-life voting democrats one by one surrendered their convictions, sold heir souls and pandered to the pro-abortion Left. Gore, Biden, Kennedy, Durbin, Gephardt, all turned their back on the children to remain in or seek to advance in power. Then there were the Cuomos and the Moynihans and O’Neils who time and again talked about the being “personally opposed” in order to defend their pro-abortion policies. And who can forget our own Fr. Drinan who went out of his way to defend the abortionist politicians and voted that way himself. What have any of them done to help the unborn?

You Can Tell A Candidate By Their Fruit

June 21, 2008

I was getting ready to post Bill Donahue’s recent article from over at InsideCatholic (which you can read here) but I was, instead, taken by the thoughtful and informative reflection (in the comments section of that article) on the “real story” of Obama’s Pro-death record. So, I felt compelled to reprint it here.

Again, while we are called to vote based on an informed conscience, that information must come from beyond the occassional cocktail party or telephone conversations with friends. My hope is that by posting these truths about Obama’s pro-death record, more of our Catholic friends will dig a little deeper into considering who is “truly” coming to the aid of the MOST innocent and vulnerable: 

“… Obama is an unapologetic pro-abortion enthusiast. He supports federal funding of abortion, wants universal health care to include abortion, voted against the partial birth abortion ban, voted against the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, and opposed any efforts to pass protections for women and children.

He has a 100% rating from NARAL and is quoted as saying

“Thirty-five years after the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, it’s never been more important to protect a woman’s right to choose… Throughout my career, I’ve been a consistent and strong supporter of reproductive justice, and have consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America… As President, I will improve access to affordable health care and work to ensure that our teens are getting the information and services they need to stay safe and healthy.”

He also told NARAL

“A woman’s ability to decide how many children to have and when, without interference from the government, is one of the most fundamental rights we possess. It is not just an issue of choice, but equality and opportunity for all women.
So Obama believes in

“I have consistently advocated for reproductive choice and will make preserving women’s rights under Roe v. Wade a priority as President. I oppose any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling in this case.

I support legislation to expand access to contraception, health information, and preventative services to help reduce unintended pregnancies. That is why I co-sponsored the Prevention First Act of 2007, which will increase funding for family planning and comprehensive sex education that teaches both abstinence and safe sex methods. It will also end insurance discrimination against contraception, improve awareness about emergency contraception, and provide compassionate assistance to rape victims.

“Finally, I support the enactment and enforcement of laws that help prevent violence, intimidation, and harassment directed at reproductive health providers and their patients.”

So Obama believes in …

abortion

emergency contraception

distributing more contraception to teen age girls without parental consent

federal and state funding of abortion services

appointing pro-abortion judges

universal health care including abortion paid for by the taxpayers.

This guy’s opinions and philosophy are so ANTI-Catholic that anyone who cannot see it must be wearing blinders.

Remember this is a guy who tells you to expect the government to make the “change.” After all he never pulled anything out of his pocket except the crumbs to support the poor.

When he made over $270,000 in 2001, his charitable contributions were less than $1500. In 2002 he gave $1050 after he and Michele earned over 259,000. This is a guy who cares about the poor. Get real.

A Catholic cannot in good conscience support a person who wants to keep the killing of children legal, anyone than he could support someone back in the 1850s who wanted to keep slavery legal.”
