While White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was announcing Friday all that the present administration was doing to save lives in Haiti, he reported that President Barack Obama was meeting with both the House and Senate Democrats to resolve how they could provide federal funds via Obamacare to terminate more American lives in the womb.
Is it not incongruous to anyone else that our president, who professes to be an advocate for all minorities, isn't one for the most disadvantaged to survival? What type of "health care" is that for the least among (and within) us?
Save lives in Haiti, end lives in America? What an utterly contradictory presidential plan and policy, especially for a man who claims to be an activist for the underprivileged. What a stark and tragic contradiction in agendas, aids, ethics and the value of human life.
One thing is certain, and Obama knows it: If the Democrats are to pass their version of health care with any overt or covert pro-abortion verbiage in it, they need their supermajority of 60 votes intact to block any possible filibuster. That is why it is certainly no coincidence that Gibbs also announced Friday that the president had decided to go to Massachusetts to campaign for 60th-vote Senate candidate Martha Coakley "because she asked."
For many reasons, I, of course, strongly encourage and support the election of the GOP challenger in that race, state Sen. Scott Brown, chief among them being to stop this supermajority gridlock and anarchy in Washington and simultaneously try to save some of those precious souls in the womb.
Not surprisingly, Obama endorsed the House version of the bill before it contained a ban on abortion funding (the Stupak-Pitts amendment) and supported the Senate version (with its tabled Nelson-Hatch amendment), which would fund abortions. Just another day and another broken presidential promise for conservatives; on Sept. 9, Obama testified, "Under our (health care reform) plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions."
If you think Obama's pro-abortion mission is over, consider brand-new special report "The Promise Audit: Tracking President Obama's Progress On Campaign Promises," in which the National Journal examined Obama's abortion track record and gave him a 33 percent completion rating regarding his campaign promises on abortion.
Can you imagine if all the pro-abortion initiatives Obama has accomplished in his first year represent just one-third of all he will do before the end of his term?
