This video (link below) explains one of the biggest reasons I could not vote for Obama. Do I think he is an evil man like so many of the circulating emails claim? Absolutely not. And I feel that anyone who whole-heartedly believes those accusations to be ignorant. I think he is in general a good person with generally good-intentions. I even considered voting for him early on in his campaign. However, the Democratic Candidate and I have a severe difference of opinion regarding several moral issues. One of which being: at what point a "baby" becomes a human being; at what point that child is of worth or of value. It is not above my paygrade to know, to feel within my very core, when a baby deserves human rights.
Don't understand what partial-birth abortion really means? Click here. Any human being with a scrap of decency or compassion will feel ill at the description, but you owe it to yourself to be informed. http://www.nrlc.org/abortion/pba/pba_images/pba_images_heathers_place.htm
A baby isn't a punishment. Perhaps some have a baby as an unexpected consequence resulting from their actions, but there are alternatives one has if she does not intend to keep the child she is expecting. And yes, some women, some girls, become pregnant as a result of being tragically violated. In cases such as those, I do support very early termination in the form of the morning-after pill or early abortion methods.
Now, people, people, people...I don't want a bunch of comments expressing anti-McCain or pro-Obama. I am not interested in debating, only sharing how I feel. You wanna share your opposing feelings, I welcome you to do so on your own blogspot. This is my blog and I reserve the right to use it to express my views. And my view is that Mr. Obama does not fully value the gift or responsibility that is human life.
