" Liar, liar, pants on fire!"
“You’ve heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true. This is all, these are all fabrications that have been put out there in order to discourage people from meeting what I consider to be a core ethical and moral obligation and that is we look out for one another, that I am my brother’s keeper, that I am my sister’s keeper. And in the wealthiest nation on the earth right now, we are neglecting to live up to that call.” President Barack Obama words to members of the “40 Days For Health Reform” religious coalition.
“You will always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.”
To The Editor:
Contrary to President Obama’s own words, the new healthcare reform bill does include provisions for federally subsidized abortions. According to Fact Check.org., a nonpartisan website run by the staff at the University of Pennsylvania, “It’s true that the House bill would allow abortions to be covered by a federal plan and by a federally subsidized private plan.”
Why is our president lying to us? Does his apparent denial of the truth stem from his “core ethical and moral obligation” to decrease the surplus population by encouraging lower income and poor families to choose government-regulated healthcare plans which include abortion?
Our president has been quick to defend the “reproductive rights” of women, yet what about the rights of a defenseless unborn female? In America today, depending on what state you reside in, abortion is available all the way up to the ninth month of pregnancy. New Jersey ranks #4 on the list of the top ten states which perform the most abortions.
Does this healthcare bill include counseling services for frightened women facing an unplanned pregnancy which would encourage placing the child up for adoption? Where in this 1,000+ page healthcare reform bill does it offer coverage of individual/marital/ and or group counseling so that if the situation can be worked out, the mother could decide to keep her precious baby? What about providing classes which would educate members about birth control and family planning? Furthermore, government healthcare plans could provide members with a financial incentive for choosing to take individual responsibility and participating in birth control and/or family planning classes.
Jesus said, “You will always have the poor with you.” This is the truth, even in America, which Obama recently deemed, “the most wealthiest nation on earth.” Our leader further stated the truth when he said that we have neglected to live up to that call to “look out for one another.”
This wealthiest nation on earth has killed over forty million unborn babies since 1973 when abortion was legalized in America. We’ve murdered more children than were ever aborted in back alleys and we are still actively encouraging infanticide to continue unchecked across this nation, especially in more recent years due to the harvesting of stem cells from aborted babies for scientific and medical research.
It is my personal opinion that infant stem cell research will ultimately fail because mankind cannot play God. God will never justify the willful and deliberate killing of innocent unborn humans so that their stem cells can be sacrificed to medical research involving humans already born. Sorry, He just doesn’t work that way.
Furthermore, it seems to me that if President Obama really believes in what he said, that he is “his sister’s keeper”, if he really cares about the devastating physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual impact abortion has on women, than he would have the guts to stand up and outlaw this most evil act pervading our nation once and for all.
