Universal Right to Kill
President Obama thinks so.
On January 22, the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Obama said:
“As we remember this historic anniversary, we must also continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”
As a state lawmaker in Illinois, Obama voted 4 times since 2001 against legislation to protect the life of babies that survive botched abortions (the last time in 2003). The 2003 bill was assigned to the Illinois Senate Health and Human Services Committee, then chaired by Obama, who ensured its demise.
Of course Obamacare, fully implemented, sends federal money to government-approved insurance plans including contraception services and abortions–and the law states all employers, regardless of religious affiliation, will provide such insurance plans to their employees.
No wonder many different church groups across the country–not just the Catholic hospitals and churches–are reacting with strong condemnation!
It’s an outrageous affront to our religious liberty and the equivalent to a government-sanctioned universal right to kill.
