at one time, I genuinely considered jumping on the Obama bandwagon. In the end, I simply could not.

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.

Okay, I AM NOT DEBATING, I TOTALLY AGREE!!! What I don't understand most is how he, (or any of his voters for that matter) as a FATHER, of two beautiful girls, can mentally, spiritually, and HONESTLY be supporting such an act. Like you said, there are the sad cases, where a pregnancy was in no way the woman's "fault". I don't understand it. What else I don't understand is how his WIFE as a MOTHER can support a husband in an act that deprives women of her job. How dare he try to be God. Anyway, those are my questions for him... Thanks for the "rant space".

Very well put. I read about partial birth abortions in high school and it made me so sick. It's one of those things that never leaves you. I think that more people should be informed about this process before they start arguing about a woman's right to kill that baby. And I agree with you on Obama too...not a bad man, considered him as a potential president, but in the end...

P.S. I registered for tickets to the MoTab concert. I'll gladly share with you if I get them. :)
