Questions for President Obama:

When Pastor Rick Warren asked you: “At what point does a baby have human rights?” you said you had no position on the matter. Should a baby like the one born alive then killed in Miami have human rights?

Your effort to protect live-birth abortion lasted years. If the Miami doctor whose license was revoked was complicit in killing a baby born alive, is that acceptable behavior to you?

How do you explain your years-long protection of live birth abortion to people who are horrified by this?

Will you be pushing to make live-birth abortion legal federally?

How do you distinguish killing premature babies outside the womb from killing them inside the womb? If this baby stayed in the womb, would the child’s death be less horrifying to you?

You have promised to sign FOCA as your first act as president. Now it appears that you and your party’s leaders in Congress will be passing FOCA in pieces, buried in different bills. Can’t we reasonably expect that live-birth abortion will follow if your FOCA agenda is allowed to move forward?

Do you want to be known as the abortion president?

CNN reports that a doctor’s license was revoked yesterday in the alleged killing of a baby born alive accidentally in a Miami abortion clinic.

Barack Obama has to be held accountable for his years-long stance on live-birth abortion. The evidence is clear that he opposed a bill that would make it illegal to kill babies born alive during attempted abortions.

Reports CNN:

“According to the suit, Sycloria Williams, then 18, discovered while being treated for a fall that she was 23 weeks pregnant. … [Dr. Pierre Jean-Jacques] Renelique was still not present when Williams ‘felt a large pain’ and delivered a baby girl, according to the suit.

“’The staff began screaming and pandemonium ensued. Sycloria watched in horror and shock as her baby writhed with her chest rising and falling as she breathed.’

“A clinic co-owner entered the room and used a pair of shears to cut the baby’s umbilical cord, the suit said. She ‘then scooped up the baby and placed the live baby, placenta and afterbirth in a red plastic biohazard bag, which she sealed, and then threw bag and the baby in a trash can.’”

The difference between this and every other abortion is that the child was that the drama happened outside the womb instead of inside it.

The case draws attention to the horror of Obama’s years of actions that would protect the practice of “live birth abortion.” At BornAliveTruth.org, you will find this timeline, with evidence that:

“The main point of Christianity was this: that Nature is not our mother: Nature is our sister. We can be proud of her beauty, since we have the same father; but she has no authority over us; we have to admire, but not to imitate.”—G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
