Obama, Dr. Schmitt?

The principal of Catholic Memorial High School in Waukesha, WI., insists on maintaining his "OBAMA" sign in his front yard, across the street from the school. Most people familiar with the school and with Dr. Schmitt KNOW that it's his yard, and his sign.

This despite the following:

Obama is undecided on whether life begins at conception -

Obama has pledged to Planned Parenthood to sign The Freedom of Choice Act, a law which would cancel every state, federal, and local regulation of abortion, no matter how modest or reasonable. It would even abolish all state restrictions on government funding for abortions. Catholics that pay income tax will be paying an abortionist to perform an abortion

Obama would repeal the Mexico City policy, which bars federal funding for international nongovernmental organizations involved in abortion-related services and would pit the US against the Vatican on the international fight against abortion

He strongly supports the 1973 Supreme Court decision on abortion rights and says he will oppose any constitutional measure to overturn it.

Obama has pledged to choose Justices with a Pro Abortion agenda and he voted against Roberts and Alito

Obama voted no on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions and prohibiting minors crossing state lines for abortion

Obama supports the destruction of embryos for experimentation and voted to expand research to more embryonic stem cell lines

He voted yes on $100M to fund contraceptives for teens and sponsored bill providing contraceptives for low-income women

Voted no on defining unborn child as eligible for SCHIP a program that gives funds to states in order to provide health insurance to families with children

He opposed the federal marriage amendment in 2006 and also favors repealing the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act, which gives a state the right not to recognize same-sex marriages performed in another state

These are not "values of the Kansas heartland." These are the values of Moloch--the Culture of Death.

Sadly, most people don't care about abortion.

Oh - don't forget - you're a racist for bringing this up.

But, Dad! It's all about Hop[e and Change. Besides, Obama is their god now. Moloch, Baal, all the same.

Isnt it ironic that Obama cannot recognize the unborn as the slaves he can set free. By affirming that they are people too--and Americans protected by the constitution. Well, Lincoln was a Republican.

More than one way to kill.

A political candidate’s position on abortion has become the de facto litmus test of morality, and of respect for life. However, the data show that economic policies, health care and many other issues may be just as deadly. Consider the matter of health care. For a study of life expectancy in the United States published in PLoS Medicine in 2006, Harvard Professor Christopher Murray analyzed 8 years of census and health statistics data. He found an astonishing 35 year gap - in life expectancy based on county of residence, income, and other social factors. In my home county, Fairfax Virginia, life expectancy is among the top ten in the US ­ about 81 years. Life expectancy in counties at the bottom is only 46 years, shorter than that in many developing countries! This isn’t a new finding - many other studies reported similar results. There are several reasons for such early death, but socioeconomic status and access to health care are the heavyweights. Thus, health care in particular and many other policy differences between the political parties can have as profound an influence on life as abortion. Clearly, the moral justification for voting cannot be based on a single issue.

As a Catholic, I am opposed to abortion and efforts to reduce abortions must continue. However, the pro-life concept must encompass all causes of death, not only abortion. The positions the Democratic Party has held with respect to universal health care, taxation, unemployment, war and torture, all of which have life-or-death consequences, are more consistently pro-life than those of the Republicans. My conscience requires that I vote for Barack Obama, and I will do so with great enthusiasm and hope.
