Were there to be no support in the whole history of ethical and moral thought, were there no acknowledged confirmation from medical science, were the history of legal opinion to the contrary, we would still have to conclude on the basis of God's Holy Word that the unborn child is a person in the sight of God. He is protected by the sanctity of life graciously given to each individual by the Creator, Who alone places His image upon man and grants them any right to life which they have.

Reason #2 to defeat Barack Obama: Partial-birth abortion
Reason #2: Partial-Birth Abortion
If you lived in Rwanda, would you vote for a person who had supported the hacking to death of innocent countrymen? Of course not.
If you lived in one of the countries where deadly street knife attacks have become alarmingly common, would you vote for a politician who wanted to legalize the practice? Absurd, right?
But in the United States, we have a candidate for president who advocated for the legality of the practice of stabbing a partially born baby in the back of his or her head with a Metzenbaum medical scissors to kill the baby. It’s called a partial-birth abortion.
The candidate? Barack Obama.
At a time when strong bipartisan majorities in the U.S. Senate and House were voting to ban partial-birth abortions, Barack Obama was a state senator in Illinois. When given a chance to vote to end partial-birth abortions in that state, Obama was one of just a handful who voted to let the brutal practice continue.
Later, while running for President in 2008, Obama claimed to be willing to accept some restriction on partial-birth abortion, but only if the abortionist was totally free to declare a health exception and do the partial-birth abortion anyway – in other words, only if there was no protection whatsoever for the baby.
If you think there’s no chance of partial-birth abortion ever returning to the U.S., think again. In 2007, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the national ban, but only by a 5-4 vote. If re-elected, Obama has made it clear he will appoint justices who support abortion. If the 5-4 majority to uphold a ban on partial-birth abortion becomes a 4-5 minority, Obama could still get his way and a horrible way for babies to die would be legal once again.
The National Right to Life Victory Fund is fighting to prevent this from happening. We’re part of the organization, National Right to Life, that not only ended partial-birth abortions in the U.S., but has stopped all other forms of late abortions in several states.
But we want to do so much more. And to do that, we need your help to elect public officials who will stand to defend the lives of helpless unborn children, not give us reasons why it should be legal to kill them. We need your help to defeat Barack Obama.
