THE MIRACLE KILLER

Pro-life groups slam Obama (S.A. Miller, April 2, 2008, Washinton Times)

"He would want his own grandchild aborted. It shows a real callous disregard for human life," said David Osteen, executive director of National Right to Life. "This is a window into his soul." [...]

Obama campaign spokesman Tommy Vietor said the candidate's comment should not be interpreted as condoning abortions.

"What Senator Obama said and what he believes is clear: Children are 'miracles,' but we have a problem when so many children are having children," he said.


While the notion of destroying miracles may seem incoherent at first, it actually captures the manner in which abortion empowers the Left. Killing God's miracles makes them feel like gods.

I've known women who've had abortions. I really don't think any of them felt like gods because of it.

Surely a lot of women don't feel like gods. But they are told that they should, indeed that they must.

The doctors certainly do. NARAL and its sistren do. The poverty pimps do. The elites do.

This issue (and his experience with it) is Obama's most glaring flaw (or most revealing window). If Rick Davis wanted to be the next Bill Moyers, he would run an ad showing a crying wet baby wriggling on a table, with gloved hands reaching down for its throat. And then do a voice-over of Obama's position on the IL version of the Born Alive act. The squeals from the Left would be priceless (especially because they didn't oppose it in Congress back in 1999/2000).

Like gods, they get to expunge their own sins.
