One Change We Don't Need

Dear Editor,

Senator Barack Obama has stated, "I have consistently advocated for reproductive choice and will make preserving women's rights under Roe v. Wade a priority as President."

Senator Obama supports abortion (feticide), infanticide, partial birth abortion, embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, taxpayer funding of abortion and is against parental notification. He also voted against a bill that would have provided medical care for babies born alive after a botched abortion.

He has declared that if he is elected president, one of his first acts would be to sign into law, the Freedom of Choice Act. This act goes further than Roe v. Wade. It would overturn every pro-life statute enacted by state legislatures. The limitations citizens have approved, such as parental notification, the ban on partial birth abortion and preventing taxpayer funding of abortion, would no longer be possible. Removing these limitations would certainly increase the number of abortions. Is this a change we need? Does this sound like a man who also said he has an earnest desire to reduce the incidence of abortion?

Since Roe v. Wade became the law in 1973, we have lost more than 50 million babies to abortion. Why, in the civilized society of America, is this happening?

A very wise president once said, "No law can give me the right to do what is wrong." — Abraham Lincoln. Abortion is not a right. It is a wrong. It is a scientific fact that life begins at conception.
