Robert P. George has some faith that if-you’re-pro-life-you-can-vote-for-Obama arguments this time around simply sound “ridiculous” and there won’t be a whole lot of buying what he is selling from Americans opposed to abortion.
That said, it wouldn’t hurt to continue to educate, as the reelection campaign tries to make the GOP sound as extreme as it gets. Make sure folks know how ridiculous it is and how radical this administration has been.
In 2008 there were some serious pro-life people who actually bought the argument that abortion opponents should vote for Barack Obama … I’m confident that it won’t happen this time. The argument sounded new and interesting back then. It’s now stale and, increasingly, ridiculous. Barack Obama is by far the greatest friend the abortion lobby and the pro-choice movement ever had in the White House. If you don’t believe me, just ask them. He’s their man. Obama fervently believes, and has consistently acted on the belief, that children in utero have no rights that others must respect. He opposes any meaningful legal protections for unborn babies. They may legitimately be killed at any time for any reason, and he promises to make sure things stay that way. He has even opposed the prohibition of sex-selection abortions.
For the full litany of the President’s offenses against sanctity of life principles, just visit the websites of major pro-life organizations such as the National Right to Life Committee, Americans United for Life, and the Susan B. Anthony List. Or, if you prefer, you can get the information from the websites of major pro-abortion groups, such as Planned Parenthood or NARAL. It doesn’t matter which side you go to for the info. Obama and his supporters do not try to hide his abortion extremism. They celebrate and praise him for it. (They just don’t call it extremism. They call it support for “reproductive health.”)
Again, passing it along, can’t hurt. Especially when Planned Parenthood is all in to get their man reelected.
