Opinion: Obama is Fit to Be Commander-in-Chief

OPINION, Aug. 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- The following is submitted by Gary McCullough, director of Christian Newswire:

Barack Obama is a proven and consistent leader in the war against children in the womb. His dedication to funding and fighting this war has never wavered. He has never voted against a weapons system to kill children in the womb. His ability to stand against his own Democratic Party and support partial-birth abortion defines Obama as a maverick.

There is little debate over the fact that each and every soldier in this war, America's abortion providers, supports the election of Obama, and those that can afford to do so, donate only to Obama's campaign.

Obama also has the support of all veterans groups in this war. The VFW of the war on the unborn, Planed Parenthood, was given a prominent place in Tuesday's Democratic National Convention. Planned Parenthood is the world's largest provider and promoter of abortion on demand. This war's American Legion, the National Abortion Federation, also supports without condition the election of a President Obama.

Soldiers in this war will never need to worry in regard to funding. Emily's List could find itself incorporated into an Obama administration, as part of his Abortion Veterans Affairs Department. From Joe Biden to Rev. Wright, Obama's litmus test will exclude anyone who is not a fully vetted patriot in this war. Forgetting to wear an American Flag pin is understandable; but should even the lowest level staff member wear a "Baby-Feet" pin, such would be grounds for ostracization.

While enemies of our allies are emboldened by Obama stating that our nation cannot fully condemn the invasion of the sovereign nation of Georgia as long as America hypocritically does the same; nations that need America's help to fund and fight their own wars against the unborn need never fear any such statement from Obama.

If the past is any indicator of future priorities, the hunt for Osama bin Laden will not be as important as disabling the impact of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

If Obama's response to the abortion question posed by Rick Warren at the Saddleback Church event has some questioning Obama's resolve, you must see the question was based upon a false premise. Obama has made it perfectly clear that no quarter will be granted to the unborn. Even when an unborn child escapes the actual abortion and takes a breath of air, that child must still be treated as if unborn and left to die. Obama made it clear that any assistance to this ultimate complication, a born-alive abortion, would infringe upon a woman's right to choose.

Obama truly has a spine of steel when it comes to this war; not even a POW, a born-alive abortion, should be allowed to escape his or her intended death.

John McCain may have the experience, proven leadership, and internationally recognized toughness in wars with bullets -- but it is Senator Obama that has proven his unwavering commitment and support to the War on the Unborn.

As commander-in-chief in this war against unborn children, Obama could very well be successful to the point that we would alter one of our nation's symbols as to have the warring American eagle no longer hold weapons of conventional warfare but rather display talons that grasp two parts of a shredded unborn baby.
