We vote every day – where we work, where we spend, where we donate, even where we invest. On November 2nd of this year we will elect a new President. For some, this is a welcome change. For others, the change is unwelcome because of the uncertainty and lack of a presidential candidate who is strong on pro-family issues. Even James Dobson of Focus on the Family said that this year’s election has the worst choices he has seen in his lifetime. I couldn’t agree more. When it comes to family values and traditional Christian values, the voter is left to choose between the lesser of two evils.
I am not a huge fan of John McCain. His silence on family issues is quite troubling and concerning to me. As a Republican, John has strayed from traditional Republican principles time and time again over his 30+ years of political experience. Barack Obama, on the other hand, is the most liberal candidate we have ever seen. He has been quite vocal on his views on sanctity of life.
Sen. Barack Obama is not only pro-abortion, he is the most anti-life presidential candidate to run since Roe v. Wade was decided over 30 years ago. Obama is in favor of taxpayer funding of abortion. This leads to a huge increase in the number of dead babies. He is against parental notification – a parent’s right to know about their minor child having an abortion.
He also supports cloning human embryos and is a co-sponsor of the “Freedom of Choice Act” which will take pro-abortion laws to a whole new level. If this were not bad enough, Obama goes even further in his views. He is for allowing partial-birth abortion “procedures” at any stage of pregnancy (even full-term). He believes in neglecting infants who survive abortions so they will be left to die. This shows his true character – he has no respect for life!
As a Christian who believes that life begins at conception, Obama is as far from my beliefs as you can get. Yet, many Christians are rallying behind him without knowing what Obama truly stands for. I’m not a McCain lover, but I’ll take him any day over someone so focused on devaluing life. Where do you stand on the issue? Will you stand for what you believe in or allow America’s morals to go by the way side? To me, the choice for President is a pretty easy one to make given the alternatives.
