In a powerful video with personal testimonials, key black conservative leaders, including Dr. Alveda C. King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., talk about how their faith influences the policies and politics they support. These black Americans state eloquently why they support Sen. John McCain and cannot, in good conscience, support Sen. Barack Obama. A primary reason cited by these black American leaders is Obama’s radical position on abortion, including the fact that Obama voted four times in the Illinois Senate against the bill that would provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion.
Why is the issue of abortion so important to black American leaders? Black communities are being devastated by abortion which is tantamount to black genocide. 35% of abortions in the United States are performed on African-American women, while they represent only 12% of our nation’s female population. According to the 2000 Census, 14 million (17 million as of 2007) African-American children have been killed through abortion. This means that more African-American babies have been killed by abortion during the past 30 years than the total number of African-American deaths from all other causes combined, including AIDS, heart disease, cancer, violent crimes and accidents. This is a crisis in black America that Obama does not care about.
Black Pro-Life Advocate Says Barack Obama Still Misleads on Abortion Votes – This eye-opening website features the words of a leading African-American pro-life advocate who says Obama continues to mislead the public about his votes on an abortion/infanticide bill. Even more troubling is the fact that in July 2007, Obama said: “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.” That bill would make unlimited abortions throughout pregnancy the national law and overturn any abortion limits in all 50 states. The bill would also require taxpayer funding of abortion, eliminate parental notification laws, and end restrictions on partial-birth abortion.
View Obama’s Abortion Voting Record – Obama actively opposed the legislation in the Illinois Senate that would have provided health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. In 2001, he voted “no” in committee, spoke against it on the Senate floor, and voted “present” on the floor. In 2002, he voted “no” in committee, spoke against it on the Senate floor, and voted “no” on the floor. Obama was the sole senator to ever speak against it on the Senate floor. The U.S. Senate passed the federal bill unanimously, with Senators Barbara Boxer and Ted Kennedy speaking in support of it. The pro-abortion group, NARAL, expressed neutrality on the federal bill. On August 5, 2002, President George W. Bush signed it into law.
For four years Obama has said he would have supported the federal version, but that simply isn’t true. In 2003, as chairman of the Illinois Senate’s Health and Human Services Committee, Obama voted “yes” on an amendment that made the Illinois version identical to the federal one. However, he then voted “no” on the amended bill.
Obama Lied About His Abortion Voting Record During the Third Presidential Debate – An analysis of the third presidential debate shows that Obama lied about his legislative action on abortion.
Obama Lie One: Obama stated that the Born Alive Infant Protection Act “said you have to provide lifesaving treatment and that would have helped to undermine Roe v. Wade.”
Truth: The legislation applied to babies that were born live, living completely outside their mothers’ womb and no longer under any jurisdiction of Roe v. Wade.
Obama Lie Two: Obama stated, “And the Illinois Medical Society, the organization of doctors in Illinois, voted against it. Their Hippocratic Oath would have required them to provide care, and there was already a law in the books.”
Truth: Illinois abortion law to this day only protects babies that survive an abortion who the abortionist deems fit to live. Obama opposed closing this loophole by voting against legislation to mandate a second doctor be present at deliveries of all babies born alive, in order to independently assess their viability.
Obama Lie Three: “I am completely supportive of a ban on late-term abortions, partial-birth or otherwise, as long as there’s an exception for the mother’s health and life, and this did not contain that exception.”
Truth: Note Obama’s slick use of the phrases “late term” and “partial birth” abortions when the issue is about babies “born alive” after a botched abortion. Obama then starts talking about the “mother’s health and life” to deflect attention away from the live baby in need of health care to continue surviving. In 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator to speak out on the Senate floor against the bill that would provide health care to babies born alive after a botched abortion. What kind of man is Obama who would do that, then lie, straight-faced, about what he had done?
Vatican official attacks U.S. Democrats as “party of death” By Phil Stewart which exposes how the former St. Louis Archbishop Raymond Burk who is the head of the Vatican’s highest court, the Vatican’s Supreme Court of the Apostolic Signature, said that the Democratic Party risked “transforming itself definitively into a party of death for its decisions on bioethical issues.” He then attacked two of the party’s most high profile Catholics — vice presidential candidate Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi — for misrepresenting Church teaching on abortion. Pope Benedict has been encouraging Catholic bishops to speak out more openly on public policy issues to make the Church’s voice heard.
Planned Parenthood: Wanting fewer blacks ‘understandable’ by Bob Unruh uncovers the shocking truth about how Planned Parenthood, the nation’s abortion industry leader, says ‘yes’ when ‘donor’ wants to reduce minorities. The article includes a video showing how a student-run magazine at UCLA revealed an undercover investigation in which representatives of Planned Parenthood admitted willingness to accept a financial donation targeting the destruction of an unborn black baby.
