Obama Abortion Policy: Fresh Blood On Our Hands!
Boulder, CO - On the first week of his presidency, Barack Hussein Obama quietly committed U.S. taxpayers' dollars to funding abortions around the world. The policy he overturned, the Bush Mexico City Policy, withheld funding from groups that performed abortions, with exceptions for abortions in cases of rape, incest, and when deemed necessary to preserve the life of the mother. Although this Bush policy was gravely flawed, and also trampled on the principle of the inviolability of innocent human life, the new Obama policy shows no respect for this concept at all.
Some have been critical of figures like Albert Speer, the Nazi Minister of Armaments, for appearing to be aloof to the horrible conditions and frequent deaths of workers who labored in the German armaments industries. If that criticism is warranted, then we should not fail to criticize the Obama administration, and all federal elected officials, for not being aware of the likelihood that abortion is murder, and not taking decisive action to stop it. At Nuremberg, people were hung for similar omissions, and yet today the easily accessible evidence that human life begins early, even at conception, is largely unacknowledged and unacted upon by those in the highest positions of government.
Although President Obama's campaign pledge to sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) will probably not be realized, it signals his willingness to impose a radical and unconstitutional abortion policy, devoid of even parental notification, on all 50 states. We must work and pray that all will come to understand that the anti-life ethic which such policies promote is a threat to the peace, freedom, and lives of all Americans.
"With 40 million surgical abortions since 1973," stated National Chairman Jon Hill, "it is fair to say that a river of innocent blood has gravely stained our nation's integrity and moral fabric. How can anyone seriously argue that we are much better than the Nazis?"
The America First Party Platform recognizes that life begins at conception and continues until natural death. "We affirm the principle espoused in the Declaration of Independence, that we are all endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights, and among them is the right to life. The right to life is not superseded by any foreign or domestic law."
