President Obama is the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history, a glimpse of which we were able to see before he even stepped foot in the oval office. As a senator, Barack Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, not once or twice, but four times. In other words, he voted for infanticide, which makes sense considering he believes newborn babies are just “fetuses outside of the womb.”
As president, he’s appointed a long list of pro-abortion judges and officials; expanded abortions through Obamacare; became the first sitting head of state to address Planned Parenthood, even wishing God blesses them; forced taxpayers to fund abortions worldwide via the UN’s Population Fund; promised to veto pro-life legislation that would ban abortions after 20 weeks; and the list goes on and on and on, as LifeNews.com documents.
Considering all these clearly pro-choice leanings, it’s rather ironic that at the Catholic Health Association Conference this week Barack Obama recalled his first job after college as a community organizer was “funded by the Campaign for Human Development, an anti-poverty initiative of the Catholic Church.” And it was at this job, he said, that he came to see that “every human being, made in the image of God, deserves to live in dignity.”
“There were times where I felt like quitting, where I wondered if the path I’d chosen was too hard,” he said.
“But despite these challenges, I saw how kindness and compassion and faith can change the arc of people’s lives,” Obama continued. “And I saw the power of faith–a shared belief that every human being, made in the image of God, deserves to live in dignity; that all children, no matter who they are or where they come from or how much money they were born into, ought to have the opportunity to achieve their God-given potential; that we are all called, in the words of His Holiness Pope Francis, ‘to satisfy the demands of justice, fairness, and respect for every human being.’”
The caveat of course being if they make it into this world.
