Obama has no moral authority, calls the evil of abortion a "right"
I (too)will not vote for anyone who fails to recognize the humanity of the child in the womb and who supports the continued execution of these children, hiding the evil under the lie of the abortion culture that it is a “choice”. Such a man does not have a consistent claim to be an advocate of human rights. He fails to recognize that these rights apply to all men and women at every age and every stage.He can talk all he wants about tearing down walls but his messge is hollow until he respects the wall of the womb, the sanctuary of all humanity.
Senator Obama does not acknowledge that
an entire class of persons, children in the first
home of the human race their mother’s womb,
are our neighbors. He speaks of inalienable rights,
but fails to include these children in the first among
them, the right to life. He also does not include
these little persons in his claims to care about
the poor and his concern for the immigrants.
Yet, they are, in the words of a great treasure
of our age, the late “Mother” now
“Blessed” Teresa of Calcutta, the “poorest of the poor”.
These little boys and girls are being evicted
from their first home, the womb,every day
by the thousands. No, they are actually being killed,
burned, and dismembered, in a war
being waged upon the womb complete
with surgical strikes and chemical weapons.
And, he supports it all, calling this evil a “right”.
I prefer instead the older man, the humble one, the Vicar of Christ who travelled to Sydney and preached the only message which can truly assist the whole world in tearing down the walls of hostility which divide us, Benedict the Beneficent. He knows that the wall of the womb is a sanctuary and he calls us all to protect those who are found within its shelter against those who want to kill them. He speaks truth to those who fail to defend against this form of terrorism, the kind being committed against children in the womb and protected by positive law. The Apostle Paul, with whom Barack Obama is quite familiar, wrote these words to the Christians in the City of Ephesus about the One who alone can tear down walls, Jesus Christ: “But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have become near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace, he who made both one and broke down the dividing wall of enmity, through his flesh, abolishing the law with its commandments and legal claims, that he might create in himself one new person in place of the two, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile both with God, in one body, through the cross, putting that enmity to death by it. He came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near, for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone. Through him the whole structure is held together and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord; in him you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.” Pope Benedict understands that St. Paul speaks of the new humanity, the Church. The fundamental solution to ending the divisions which exists between us will require authentic conversion and not lofty rhetoric. Thank God we have great religious leaders in our day, like Pope Benedict, telling us all the truth. We also need great civil leaders as well, to serve the State and the common good. However, they must be men and women who are not selective in whose voice they will hear. They must not exclude from their definition of the poor innocent children in the womb. Until Senator Obama hears the cry of the children behind the wall of the womb, I will never consider giving him my support. His claim to speak with moral authority is undermined by his unabashed support of the so called “right” to abortion. Senator Obama, how about that wall, the wall of flesh, the one which protects the next generation? It used to be the safest place on earth.Now,it has become a battlefield in a new campaign of terror.
OPINION: Senator Obama and the Wall of the Womb

Dr Alveda King, Pastoral Associate, Priests for life and neice
of the late Martin Luther King said:
“Science is indisputably clear –
abortion kills a living human being.
It’s the ideology of those who call themselves
pro-choice that leads them to ignore this
inconvenient scientific fact.
If Senator Obama really does want the courts
to be ‘the refuge of the powerless,’
he needs to heed his own words
and vote for justices who will stand for
the most powerless, the unborn.”
Priests for Life is the nation’s largest Catholic pro-life
organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia.
