Reaping what was sown
Last fall, many self-described evangelical Christians and around half of all Roman Catholics voted for Barack Obama. With the announcement of Supreme Court Justice David Souter’s retirement we are left with the specter of what could have been and what will be.
Had John McCain won, I can be sure that he would have nominated a less conservative person to fill this vacancy than I would have but certainly whoever Senator McCain nominated would have been more conservative than the arch-liberal President Obama is going to nominate. Justice Souter has been a consistent liberal vote on the court and his nomination is one of the many disappointments of the first Bush presidency. With his retirement and a hypothetical GOP administration, the final vote needed would be within reach to overturn Roe v Wade. Instead we have the most far left President we have seen in my lifetime who is a devoted follower in the blood soaked legacy of Margaret Sanger and a defender of America as an enabler of state sanctioned mass murder.
Instead of seeing Roe v Wade rightly fall, we now will see what the fruit of the Obama election really is. I am discussing the slide into socialism we are seeing on The Arsenal of Liberty, but from a sanctity of life point of view this is a major blow. Expect President Obama, emboldened by his rock star popularity, the cover provided by his adoring fans in the “press” and a virtually filibuster proof Senate to nominate a leftist ideologue, someone who will be a rabid supporter of the make-believe “right to choose” decision Roe v. Wade. Expect Obama to name a young, far left female candidate who will be able to serve on the court for perhaps the next 30 years. There are other issues that will be impacted by this move for decades, from homosexual “marriage” to property rights, but all of the rest take a backseat to the genocidal, profit-driven sacrifice of innocent children on the altar of “choice”.
Make no mistake. The votes cast by people who name the name of Christ last fall for Barack Obama will enable more abortions to be performed in this country and the conscience of those who made that choice should be heavy with the ramifications of what they wrought in a vain attempt to protect their own pocketbooks.
