U.S. President Barack Obama on Friday will lift restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counselling abroad, reversing a policy of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush, an administration official said.
When asked by Rick Warren when life begins, Obama said he didn’t know; Steven Ertelt reports (Sept 6, 2008):
When asked during the forum at Saddleback Church, Obama said last month “that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”
In an interview with ABC News’ “This Week” program on Sunday, Obama said he meant to say that he thinks the scientific question of the beginning of human life is a theological one that he can’t answer.
“What I intended to say is that, as a Christian, I have a lot of humility…all I meant to communicate was that I don’t presume to be able to answer these kinds of theological questions,” he said.
So as a Christian, Mr. Obama has humility. But wouldn’t humility lead one to err on the side of caution? If he doesn’t know when life begins, wouldn’t it be safer in the sight of God not to kill innocent babies in their mother’s wombs? Or does Obama by his actions today, just as his past voting record, show that he does not fear God? Now his policies contribute to abortions anywhere in the word where people receive US subsidies.
Cf. americanthinker.com and this comment from Lee:
Inside the womb is becoming the most dangerous place on earth. More Americans die here daily than have been killed for the entire campaign in Iraq. Since abortion mills specifically target minorities, I find it sad that so many black people support the planned genocide of their own. Look at where centers are located and the demographics of people they “service.” And cry for 30 million who were never given the chance that Obamas mother gave him.
