Save lives in Haiti, end lives in America?

by Chuck Norris

While White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was announcing Friday all that the present administration was doing to save lives in Haiti, he reported that President Barack Obama was meeting with both the House and Senate Democrats to resolve how they could provide federal funds via Obamacare to terminate more American lives in the womb.

Is it not incongruous to anyone else that our president, who professes to be an advocate for all minorities, isn’t one for the most disadvantaged to survival? What type of “healthcare” is that for the least among (and within) us?

Save lives in Haiti, end lives in America? What an utterly contradictory presidential plan and policy, especially for a man who claims to be an activist for the underprivileged. What a stark and tragic contradiction in agendas, aids, ethics and the value of human life.

One thing is certain, and Obama knows it: If the Democrats are to pass their version of healthcare with any overt or covert pro-abortion verbiage in it, they need their supermajority of 60 votes intact to block any possible filibuster. That is why it is certainly no coincidence that Gibbs also announced Friday that the president had decided to go to Massachusetts to campaign for 60th by Chuck Norris columnist -vote Senate candidate Martha Coakley “because she asked.”

For many reasons, I, of course, strongly encourage and support the election of the GOP challenger in that race, state Sen. Scott Brown, chief among them being to stop this supermajority gridlock and anarchy in Washington and simultaneously try to save some of those precious souls in the womb.

Not surprisingly, Obama endorsed theHouse version of the bill before it contained a ban on abortion funding(the Stupak-Pitts amendment) and supported the Senate version (with itstabled Nelson-Hatch amendment), which would fund abortions. Justanother day and another broken presidential promise for conservatives;on Sept. 9, Obama testified, “Under our [healthcare reform] plan, nofederal dollars will be used to fund abortions.”

Ifyou think Obama’s pro-abortion mission is over, consider brand-newspecial report “The Promise Audit: Tracking President Obama’s ProgressOn Campaign Promises,” in which the National Journal examined Obama’s abortion track record and gave him a 33 percent completion rating regarding his campaign promises on abortion.

Canyou imagine if all the pro-abortion initiatives Obama has accomplishedin his first year represent just one-third of all he will do before theend of his term?

Stillon the horizon — but fast approaching — is the fulfillment of Obama’scampaign promise to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which is a sweepingbill that would abolish all pro-life regulations once and for allacross the nation, from parental notification laws to bans on allfederal funding of abortion.

Obamawas not joking when he told Planned Parenthood during his presidentialcampaign that he would “turn the page” on the abortion culture war. Theman who, as a presidential candidate, once confessed that estimatingwhen a baby gets human rights was “above” his “paygrade” has grantedmore pay to pro-abortion agencies and enacted more pro-abortionlegislation to ensure that millions of more babies’ rights never areexperienced outside the womb.

Astens of millions celebrate another Sanctity of Life Sunday in tens ofthousands of churches across America, I’m struck again by the sheercontrasts between President Obama’s and our founding fathers’ views ofhuman life in the womb. For example, Thomas Jefferson wrote in 1809,“The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, isthe first and only legitimate object of good government.”

Fifty-sixfounders even signed the Declaration of Independence to testify thatall human lives are “created equal, that they are endowed by theirCreator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life,Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness — That to secure these Rights,Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers fromthe Consent of the Governed.”

Couldit be any clearer? As long as we have breath and those in the womb havelife, we patriots must fight for American life the way many of us noware fighting for Haitian life.
