With the 41st anniversary of Roe v. Wade this week, it's time to blow the whistle on the greatest advocate of abortion in the modern age: President Barack Obama.
To date, it is still unknown when U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will rule on whether or not Obama and Obamacare will force a group of nuns -- the Little Sisters of the Poor -- to provide contraception, including drugs that possibly induce abortions, to the employees at the care facility for the elderly that they run or be fined because of noncompliance with the new health care law.
What is clearly known, however, is how Obama is using every resource at his disposal -- including Obamacare -- to ensure the expansion and availability of abortion in America and around the world. This past weekend was Sanctity of Human Life weekend, and Wednesday marks 41 years since the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in our country, so it's a good time to remind Americans of Obama's radical abortion agenda.
I echo what I wrote when our country elected Obama as president: We placed a man in the highest office in the land who has the most liberal views and voting record on abortion of any president in American history.
As a state senator in Illinois, he led opposition three years in a row (2001-03) to a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of babies unintentionally left alive by abortion. He also opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion and strongly disapproved of the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. He does not support the Hyde amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding of abortion through Medicaid. He also voted to block a bill that would have required a doctor to notify at least one parent before performing an abortion on a minor girl from another state. Strangely, Obama even once said he would not want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" after an unwanted pregnancy.
And since assuming the presidency, Obama has pushed for a pro-choice agenda in ways that America hasn't seen since the original 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling. He overturned the "Mexico City policy," now allowing federal funds to support international family planning groups that provide abortions. Restrictions for federal funding for embryonic stem cell research have been lifted. In addition, Obama appointed two progressive pro-abortion Supreme Court justices -- Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.
