Obama's Pact With Planned Parenthood

We want to thank our friends at Baptist Press for posting a complete transcript of Barack Obama's speech before Planned Parenthood on July 17, 2007. During that fateful meeting, Obama was engaged in a bidding war against Hillary Clinton for the hearts of America's Abortion Lobby.

For those who might be seduced by pretty words and an impulse to contribute toward 'change', read these words about Obama's passionate commitment to abortion-on-demand:

"But [my campaign] is more than just about standing our ground. It must be about more than protecting the gains of the past. We're at a crossroads right now in America and we have to move this country forward. This election is not just about playing defense, it's also about playing offense. It's not just about defending what is, it's about creating what be in this country. And that's what we've got to work together on.

"On this fundamental issue of [abortion rights], I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield....The first thing I'll do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing that I'd do....That's why I think it's important for us obviously to get not only a Democratic White House [but a stronger] Congress as well to protect these rights."

And what is the "Freedom of Choice Act"? It would completely federalize the abortion issue. All state laws which restrict abortion-on-demand at any point in the pregnancy would be declared null and void by Congressional fiat. That means Idaho's Parental Consent law or Ban on Tax-Funded Abortions would be superseded by a new federal act.

America's families should be gravely concerned by Obama's agenda. He is one with Planned Parenthood in believing that abortion is essential to womanhood; that killing preborn children can be rationalized as a kindness.

Perhaps most chilling of all, is the priority Obama places on killing preborn children. His FIRST priority is not jobs, terrorism, energy independence or education. That suggests a derangement which should create grave doubts in the hearts of all rational observers.

Read the entire speech for yourself:

Obama Allies Wage Aggressive Effort of Deception

An aggressive campaign is underway to deceive pro-Life voters into believing that Barack Obama is “acceptable” and not really the rabid abortion advocate he’s been portrayed to be.

That effort has both an evangelical and Catholic flavor.

We saw evidence of that in Obama’s willingness to attend a forum hosted by Rick Warren earlier in the year. That didn’t work well for Obama, as you may remember, because he could produce no coherent explanation for being both a “Christian” and clueless about the Lord’s intentions regarding innocent human life. (This was the moment of his infamous, “over my pay grade” comment).

Now we learn from Bill Donohue of the Catholic League that a long-term strategy has been underway in the Catholic community to confuse the faithful. He tells LifeNews.Com that George Soros has pumped hundreds of thousands of dollars into several front groups going back to 2005 in order to aid them in their campaign of heresy.

“Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good” and “Catholics United” have been very active this year producing propaganda designed to mask Obama’s pro-abortion views even as Obama out-bid Hillary Clinton for the support of groups like NARAL and Planned Parenthood.

In an odd way, this strategy is confirmation of the potential power of the pro-Life community across the country to determine the outcome of this presidential race. Yet the news is a warning that serious prayer is needed in these final days. We must ask the Lord to protect our brothers and sisters from this deception and propaganda; we must ask that Obama be revealed as the menace he is to preborn children and their mothers.
