Obama's Promise




"The first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do."


Obama made this promise in his July 17, 2007 speech to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. (Planned Parenthood is America's largest abortion provider.)

Christian author and teacher Randy Alcorn, in his article entitled "Not Cool: Obama's Pro-abortion Stance, and Christians enabling him", makes this point about Obama's promise:

Now, “first thing” means first thing, right? So before helping the poor and protecting the environment and addressing the economy and national defense, what is President Obama going do? He's going to assure that abortion stays legal and that the numbers are NOT reduced, by signing an act that will devastate decades of work at the state level by the prolife movement. Requirements of parental notification and informed consent and bans on partial birth abortions? History, if Obama has his way.

When Obama made this promise, he was either lying or telling the truth. If he was lying, he has a serious character problem. If we can’t trust him to do this, why trust him to follow through on any other promise, including those for which evangelicals are supporting him?

Ironically, however, if Obama was not lying, then he has a far worse character problem. Why? Because he is committing himself to oppose the rights of unborn children to live. I would rather he be a liar than that he be the defender of the killing of weak and vulnerable children, the orphans and fatherless.

...It is certainly a bad thing to promise something good, then not carry out your promise, as some Republican politicians have done in the prolife arena...But it is even worse to promise something bad, something that is in fact evil—-the furthering of the shedding of innocent blood—-and then keep your promise.

Now you've heard it straight from Obama, so don't be surprised if he keeps his promise.

Gina, Thank you so much for so freely expressing the truth. I had my sister-in-law read this(who is planning on voting for Oboma); and she was stunned and shocked, by the truth! She has not said if she is going to change her vote, but because of you and the knowledge that you shared the seed was planted so that maybe she will do what is right. Thanks!
