The leader of a black pro-life organization is blasting Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama for “applauding the efforts” of those who are aborting unborn African-Americans.
Day Gardner is president of the National Black Pro-Life Union, which helps to coordinate the efforts of black pro-life groups.
“Senator Obama doesn’t care that abortion has obliterated the rights of more than 15 million black children since 1973,” Gardner said in a statement. “He doesn’t care that abortion is the No. 1 killer of African-Americans surpassing deaths caused by accidents, heart disease, stroke, crimes, HIV-AIDS and all other deaths – combined!
“He won’t make one of his powerful speeches decrying the injustice of abortion providers as they plant killing centers firmly in black communities – making it easier to kill black children. Instead, he actually applauds their efforts! These children are denied their most basic human right, which is the right to life, a right which our ancestors so proudly worked for, marched for and many of them died for.”
Obama’s record of supporting abortion in both the Illinois state Senate and the U.S. Senate is undisputed.
WND columnist Jill Stanek has written about Obama’s opposition to Illinois’ Born Alive Infant Protection Act, legislation clarifying the terms “person,” “human being,” “child,” and “individual” in Illinois statutes included any baby born alive, no matter what gestational age or circumstance of birth.
Wrote Stanek: “In 2001 and 2002, Obama was the lone senator speaking against Born Alive on the Senate floor. In 2003, Obama killed the bill altogether by burying it alive in a committee he chaired. …
“By the third time Obama tried to snuff Born Alive, he was running for the U.S. Senate. The federal version had passed the year before unanimously in the Senate and almost unanimously in the House. Even NARAL went neutral. Pro-aborts agreed to let it pass without a fight lest they appear extreme.
“Except Obama. He decided to battle alone further left than any other senator – Boxer, Clinton, Kennedy, Kerry, et al.”
Concluded Gardner: “Unfortunately, Barack Obama supports the ruthless culture of death – one that includes killing the smallest Americans – too small to flee or fight back.”
