Finally, some meat for Barack Obama’s opposition to chew on. As I’ve said before, all the shallow name calling and innuendo about Obama would only hurt McCain supporters. Now, Obama’s pro legal abortion stance thinly veiled recently by saying he “wants to reduce abortions” will boost McCainites.
The moderator of Saturday night’s presidential forum on faith — Pastor Rick Warren — says Barack Obama failed to adequately address the question of when life begins.
This from OneNewsNow.com:
Warren went on to suggest Obama’s non-answer will not sit well with many Christians. As Warren puts it: “If an evangelical really believes that the Bible is literal — in other word[s], in Psalm 139 God says ‘I formed you in your mother’s womb and before you were born I planned every day of your life’ — if they believe that’s literally true, then they can’t just walk away from that. They can add other issues, but they can’t walk away from the belief that at conception God planned that child, and to abort it would be to short circuit the purpose.”
Obama said that although he’s pro-choice and supports Roe v. Wade, his goal is to reduce the number of abortions in America.
“On this particular issue, if you believe that life begins at conception … and you are consistent, then I can’t argue with you on that,” he said. “What I can do is say, are there ways we can work together to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies?”
