Barack isn't that different

Just like every other major Democratic contender for the Party's nomination for the Presidency, he makes his ritual observances before Planned Parenthood, sounding very similar to others who have sought the nomination.

Until the hold of the abortion lobby over the Democratic Party is loosened, they're going to have a hard time convincing a majority of Americans to vote for them. Not that it can't happen, but I can confidently say that if Barack was pro-life, he'd probably be a shoe-in for President.

An ideal situation: Obama becomes pro-life and changes the Democratic Party orthodoxy on abortion rights.

We can't count on Obama becoming pro-life, and vote for him on that basis, of course.

But if all the high-flown rhetoric he specializes in proves to be elaborate cover for an unusually cynical conventional politician, voters likely will throw him out.

So, even if he does not MEAN all the lofty audacious hopes, he still, for his own survival, will have to consistently take the high road in office if he wants a second term and respect.

And if you take the high road at more than one or two junctions, take a stand for what-ought-be over what-is, you're forced, by ethics, reason and science into a pro-life stance pretty quickly.

Abortion is the furthest thing from pre-natal care, something liberal humanitarians (both of them?) should want.

I blog to you on behalf of Fr. Frank Pavone and Priests for Life. Fr. Pavone recently posted two videos on You Tube in which he describes and demonstrates the two most common abortion techniques, using the actual instruments of abortion and the words found in medical textbooks and court testimony.







You can view these videos at







http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us_y9GP_-DA (Dismemberment abortion) and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBOAPleF1t0 (Suction abortion).







These videos are part of a new project called, "Is This What You Mean?" It aims to educate the public about the nature of abortion and to challenge public officials and candidates who support the legality of abortion to admit what it is. A full description of the project is at www.priestsforlife.org/action/abortion-procedure-revealed.htm .







We are asking blog moderators to post a link or set-up an area on their blog for easy access to view our two You Tube videos.







As Fr. Pavone has quoted in endless homilies and talks about public servants who are pro-choice, there is a difference between serving the public and killing the public. Abortion has lost its meaning and is just a word to some politicians. In fact, as long as it has been since Jan.22 1973, the public is still not aware of what an abortion is and what it looks like. Again, we urge you to view Fr. Pavone’s demonstrations and forward this to anybody unaware such as parents, pastors, teachers, government officials etc….











In Christ,
