One month ago, tens of thousands of young Americans came to Washington for the annual march in defense of the sanctity of human life. It was an impressive sight to see so many youth willing to brave the cold to keep fighting against Roe vs. Wade 35 years after the Supreme Court issued that terrible decision. In the years since, millions of innocent unborn children have been aborted and countless women exploited.
Senator Barack Obama took time out from the campaign trail to issue a statement while pro-life marchers were standing up for life. The candidate of “hope” and “change” apparently wants no change when it comes to Americaâ€™s current abortion-on-demand regime and, sadly, he offers no hope to the unborn. Here is what he said:
“Thirty-five years after the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, itâ€™s never been more important to protect a womanâ€™s right to choose. Last year, the Supreme Court decided by a vote of 5-4 to uphold the Federal Abortion Ban, and in doing so undermined an important principle of Roe v. Wade: that we must always protect womenâ€™s health.
“With one more vacancy on the Supreme Court, we could be looking at a majority hostile to a womenâ€™s fundamental right to choose for the first time since Roe v. Wade. The next president may be asked to nominate that Supreme Court justice. That is what is at stake in this election.
“Throughout my career, Iâ€™ve been a consistent and strong supporter of reproductive justice, and have consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America.
“When South Dakota passed a law banning all abortions in a direct effort to have Roe overruled, I was the only candidate for President to raise money to help the citizens of South Dakota repeal that law. When anti-choice protesters blocked the opening of an Illinois Planned Parenthood clinic in a community where affordable health care is in short supply, I was the only candidate for President who spoke out against it. And I will continue to defend this right by passing the Freedom of Choice Act as president.”
The idea of a “President Obama,” with a perfect 100% pro-abortion rating from Planned Parenthood and NARAL, choosing our next Supreme Court justice, or the next two or three Supreme Court justices, ought to be enough to send every conservative who cares about the sanctity of life running to the polls in November.
Pro-Lifers For Obama?
Yesterday, I noted that recent polling data shows John McCain beating Hillary Clinton but narrowly trailing Barack Obama. The Illinois senatorâ€™s charisma is no doubt largely responsible for his popularity, but other polling data points to a potentially serious problem. According to LifeNews.com, Obama is polling better with pro-life voters than Hillary Clinton is, even though Barack may well be further to the left than Hillary on many issues, including abortion.
For example, looking at polling data among pro-life voters in Wisconsin, John McCain gets 65% of the vote, compared to just 27% for Hillary â€“ a 38- point advantage for McCain. Against Obama, however, there is a ten-point swing, with McCain favored 60%-to-32% among pro-life voters. According to LifeNews.com, the same disparity has been recorded in polling in Virginia and Iowa.
One possible explanation is that Hillary is a “known quantity,” while Obama is a “blank slate” to many voters. If that is the case, the pro-life, pro- family movement needs to step-up its voter education efforts immediately!
Toward that goal, CWF has recently posted on our website a quick comparison sheet highlighting the stark contrasts between John McCain, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on some key pro-family, pro-life issues.

The apology is destroying America! Last week John McCain took a defensive stand and apologized for radio talk show host, Bill Cunningham, for his supposedly rude language toward Obama, during a McCain rally. Cunningham used Obama’s middle name Hussein and made other humorous remarks that were no big deal.
McCain is not alone in being quick to apologize. Many Republicans, conservatives, and Christians find themselves in the defensive. Instead of being offensive, when it comes to comments or beliefs that are not inline with diversity thinking, there is a desire to make people “feel” good, thus the apology to anyone who claims being offended.
In Luke 13:51, Jesus says, “Do you think I have come to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division.” He never said we were to “feel” good because everything holds equal value, but that we would find peace if we followed His word, even if it meant division within our own families.
The Bible is clear on right and wrong, good and bad. Enforced diversity education encourages defensive action for those who are not tolerant or politically correct, and many fall into the compromise. But when we stand for God’s word then we push forward in offensive positions of truth that keep liberal activists on the defensive, instead of us.
If we want to take back America, we must become offensive and not wait for the evil ones to do their job. They are relentless and will never stop. They successfully degrade the American culture, the white race, and Judeo-Christian values, in order to make change, while traditional Americans continue to defend themselves.
We must become offensive by adopting attitudes, actions, and words that support the goodness of our nation and its culture. By being bold in the truth, we unwrap the deception of misguided activists and put them on the defensive, instead of us.
It is time for Republicans, conservatives, and Christians to change. We must stop apologizing for our heritage, our skin color, and for the Godly principles upon which our nation was founded.

Monday Morning Thoughts
The dangers of diversity addiction are far reaching in the months prior to the next election. Many Americans are transformed already and countless people have moved into the compromise stage that encourages the acceptance of diversity thinking. The schools, workplace, and churches have done their job.
Already we see words being used that elicit feelings rather than reality. This is how diversity addiction works. Everyone wants to “feel” good and Obama mania offers “good” feelings of hope and security.
The new politics that Obama uses are front-row fainting females to show compassion and kindness. During each incident, he uses the same “caring” words as he throws the supposed fainter a bottle of water. Does he know they need one, or are his actions and words used to depict “healings” that move the audience toward feelings of euphoria?
He uses the words hope and change flippantly with shallow socialist programs to support them. Hope for what? Why are people so desperate to take the words hope and change and use them for solutions that are totally unrealistic?
Hope has become magic. All of a sudden everyone’s desires become possible through change and many American minds that have evolved into diversity thinking are vulnerable. Any methods to get what people perceive as their rights are acceptable and achievable by taking from the rich and giving to the poor.
This is amazing since when you analyze who will be affected, it is the very people who thought they would be helped. Citizens will be shocked when the Obama’ hope becomes the reality that they are now the rich people who must contribute to socialist programs.
This great change, ruled by hope, will find people sacrificing more than they want to give. Suddenly when they have to pay for their own health insurance and their neighbors, and don’t forget the entitlements, the average citizen will face the reality of the phony utopia promised them by Obama or Clinton.
The more of our life and the more money taken away from us by the government, offers us less freedom, not greater freedom. But as long as “feelings” are ruling the schools, workplaces, and churches, liberal and pseudo conservative citizens will continue to believe misleading rhetoric of hope leading them toward a new freedom.
The “fainting” continues and the mouth of America shouts Obama hope as it is led to its destruction. The only hope for traditional Americans, in the months prior to elections, is that our shouts to win back this great nation will be loud enough to be heard!
