The Most Pro-Abortion President: Barack Obama
Brad Mattes, writing for LifeNews.com has compiled a lengthy list of President Obama’s “pro-abortion accomplishments” during the past year. His research confirms what we already know: Barack Obama is the most pro-abortion president in the history of our nation.
Mattes, executive director of Life Issues Institute, a pro-life educational group, lists these “accomplishments” month by month.
Obama’s first pro-abortion maneuver came his first day in office when he rescinded the Mexico City Policy which kept U.S. money from being spent on abortion internationally. And his pro-abortion record just went downhill from there, unless you belong to Planned Parenthood and consider it going uphill.
Brad Mattes, no doubt, would like President Obama to discover what pro-lifers know by reason, the natural law, and/or by faith: America has no greater resource than ALL its people, including the preborn.
In his State of the Union speech the president said those in office shouldn’t “avoid telling hard truths.” Well, Mr. President, the hard truth is that the America you lead is predominately pro-life, a fact that you seem to have ignored at your own political peril — we won’t speak of the spiritual peril.
Here is the beginning of Mattes’s helpful account of Obama’s dismal life record thus far:
I promised I wouldn’t just do what was popular. I would do what was necessary. — President Obama, State of the Union 2010
Mr. President, what you’ve done has been neither popular nor necessary.
Not a word was said, during last nights State of the Union address, about the administration’s pro-abortion ‘accomplishments.’ But they are many.
In January, just days after taking office, Mr. Obama rescinded a policy to keep US money out of international clinics that promote and offer abortions. Early nominations to the administration included the attorney who fought to starve and dehydrate Terri Schindler Schiavo.
By February, Mr. Obama took away protections for healthcare workers who could not in good conscience agree to assist in abortions.
