Reason #36 to Defeat Barack Obama: The Debates
Joe Biden walked into a number of traps in yesterday’s vice presidential debate. But then again, maybe that’s better than President Obama, who avoided walking into traps by keeping his head down and not saying much of anything in his big debate loss to Mitt Romney.
One of the traps Biden fell into was on the topic of abortion. And what he said would astound any moral philosopher.
Asked to discuss the role his faith has played in his personal view of abortion, Biden said this:
“Life begins at conception in the Church’s judgment. I accept it in my personal life. But I refuse to impose it on equally devout Christians and Muslims and Jews, and I just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. I do not believe we have a right to tell other people that . . .”
Well, Joe, there are certain moral imperatives that are so fundamental, even completely aside from the question of religion, that you not only have a “right to tell other people that,” but you have a moral obligation to do so. And one of those times is when the action in question is the violent destruction of a fellow human being’s life.
In other words, Biden fully understands that life begins at conception. He says he won’t impose that belief on others. But he will impose the beliefs of five Supreme Court justices on the bodies of little unborn children at the cost of their lives?
In what bizarre kind of morality is that right . . . or even logical?
Joe Biden once cast a Senate committee vote to overturn Roe v. Wade. He knows better. He knows that human life – human beings – are growing in the womb.
But like others in his party who sometimes voted pro-life or made pro-life statements – Al Gore, Jesse Jackson, Richard Gephart, Dennis Kucinich among them – defending the innocent became inconvenient when they wanted to run for the presidential nomination of a party whose bosses support abortion on demand. So they “evolved” or completely dropped their previous positions. Like throwing away an old coat. As if it was just a change in styles to keep up with the times. Never mind the unborn who might die because of their votes.
Imagine another time in our history if a politician would have acknowledged that he agreed with his church that every person held as a slave was an equal human being in the eyes of his church, and he believed this enough that he voted for the anti-slavery 13th Amendment . . . and then he changed his mind, and began voting to retain slavery so he could run for the a spot on the ticket of a political party that supported slavery.
He would be hounded before history as a moral weakling.
If Joe Biden proved anything with his debate performance, it’s that he’s not qualified to hold one of the highest offices in the land. He doesn’t have the level of concern for the vulnerable that we – and the unborn – need in our leaders.
You can help us defeat Barack Obama and Joe Biden on November 6th. Romney and Ryan’s success in the debates has tightened the race and put several new states in play. So many swing states are now tied or nearly tied in the polls that it is imperative we increase the amount of ads, mailings, literature distribution and get-out-the-vote phone calls around the country.
Please help us get the word out in every battleground state with a generous donation to the National Right to Life Victory Fund today. Four more years of the bizarre moral wanderings of Barack Obama and Joe Biden is simply too much for the unborn to bear.
