Obama the Radical Abortionist: I will not Yield
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf0XIRZSTt8&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&hl=en&fs=1] Did you hear the contorted rhetoric here? On the one hand Obama says: "culture wars are so 90's" and on the other hand he states, "I will not yield." So let me ask, how can there be culture wars unless there are two opposite sides? He is accusing pro-lifers of being contentious, divisive people. He is wishing we would just surrender and go away - yet he himself will not do so. The arrogant elitism here is profound and disturbing. Is Obama just elitist or he is also cold?
The pro-abortion cause is not yielding an inch and is as militant and frantic as ever. To paint the pro-life movement as contentious is hypocritically absurd. Let's pray that this is a sign of desperation and that the pro-abortion movement is loosing its grip.
My hope is that one day the majority of us will look back on such pro-abortion politicians the same way we do the powerful leaders of the Antebellum South such as John Clay: great speakers, powerful politicians of brilliant leadership, but deeply flawed and very mistaken. My prayer is that one day we will look back on this time in the same way we now look back on the pre-Civil Rights Era and the Antebellum days before the Civil War and sing, thanks be to God abortion is gone, and "His truth is marching on."
If you are on the fulcrum here you need to carefully listen to his words and you need to read Justin Taylor's post below. Those of us criticizing Barack Obama as an extremist and radical pro-abortion politician are not exaggerating. The Freedom of Choice Act would completely sweep away all pro-life progress and hopes of lasting change besides completely destroying the rights of the unborn, the rights of parents, and the rights of pro-life physicians and counselors. Furthermore, this will not ease up the culture war but it will divide this country as never before.
