With the horrible mass murders at Virginia Tech Monday still fresh in our minds, presidential hopeful Barack Obama had something to
"We continue to be degraded by violence and all manners of abuse perpetrated on our children,” said Obama. "And Bobby Kennedy’s right; we tolerate it.
“We glorify it, we encourage it, we ignore it, and it's heartbreaking. It has to stop."
Did you catch that? Senator Obama is dismayed by the glorification and encouragement of violence. Any chance he broached that very subject in his November meeting with rapper Ludacris, who writes some of the more abhorrent lyrics which glorify violence against women?
The Senator described a culture in which "the violence of children and communities" is ignored,…
Stop right there!! Let’s look further into how “the violence of children” is ignored. Have you any idea how hideous and grotesque the partial-birth abortion procedure is? It’s so disgusting that I can even bring myself to put in writing an explanation. So if the junior Senator from Illinois is really concerned about violence against children, he must have rejoiced over the 5-4 decision handed down by the Supreme Court to uphold the partial-birth abortion ban, right?
I strongly disagree with today’s Supreme Court ruling, which dramatically departs from previous precedents safeguarding the health of pregnant women.
How is brutalizing a child supposed to protect a pregnant woman’s health? I have yet to see the statistic which cites the percentage of partial-birth abortions performed in order to safeguard the health of pregnant women. Why do you suppose that is? Could it be because the percentage is so infinitesimal that it would effectively shatter such weak arguments for the procedure?
I have no doubt that Senator Obama detests violence against innocent children. But his expression of disappointment over Wednesday’s Supreme Court ruling could very well come back to haunt him.
