Obama Endorses Postpartum Abortion!


By: Erik Rush

Just when I think the man has run out of ways to alienate even swing voters, he comes up with something even more potentially damaging to his campaign.

As many an astute media watcher already knows, on July 17, 2007 Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill., who wants to be The First Black President of The United States) told Planned Parenthood that sex education for kindergarteners, as long as it is “age-appropriate,” is “the right thing to do.”

Yes, I know… Your reaction was similar to mine: “Good Lord! What’s next: Endorsing postpartum abortion?”

“When you get right down to it,” the Illinois Senator said before an audience at the recent Stem Cells R Us Annual Convention, “What difference does two or three minutes inside or outside the womb really make? One’s ‘late-term’ and the other’s ‘postpartum’. Who’s to say if the postpartum fetus is truly viable? Postpartum fetuses die all the time for all manner of reasons…”

If a full-term unborn baby can be called a “fetus” and aborted, then why not, right? There’s no significant theoretical or intellectual leap involved…

I’m not going to belabor the point that there’s no more an “age-appropriate” sex education curriculum for kindergarteners than there is an “acceptable level” of Ebola virus in one’s blood or rat testicles in supermarket salami.

The questions raised in my mind of late (Other than Obama possibly shooting for the Secretary of Early Indoctrination post if he doesn’t get the nomination and another Democrat wins the White House) were as follows:

1) Why Obama insists upon addressing not only some of the most dangerously contentious issues presently available, but does so from a place of glaring vulnerability.
2) Why he does not appear to comprehend that his positions on these issues put him squarely in the in the Leninist wing of the Democratic Party, which represents a scant minority of voting Americans.
3) Why his handlers, who appeared to be among the best a junior senator running for President (to some, an oddity in itself) could hope for, are allowing him to do it.

Which gives rise to the more poignant questions – and where we must lay aside the fact that Obama is black. Is he actually in heart and mind squarely in the in the Leninist wing of the Democratic Party? Is that what he’s sincerely about, handlers and naysayers alike be damned? Or is it simply about ambition: Do he and his handlers believe that his course, though marked by clusters of timber-splitting sharp pointy rocks, is still the best to his becoming The First Black President of The United States?

A person with a history of Islamism and militancy in his family who was running for his party’s nomination for President might think that being closely allied with a militant pastor (Trinity United Church of Christ’s Reverend Jeremiah Wright) was a tad risky. The fallout from that blowing up in his face.
