Obama and Abortion

If there's one issue that magnifies the difference between John McCain and Barack Obama, it's abortion, the greatest moral failure of our country.

When moderator Pastor Rick Warren asked in Saturday's forum, "At what point does a baby get human rights," McCain was unequivocal in stating life begins at conception. On the other hand, Obama said:
"… whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity … is above my pay grade."
It's too bad that for all of Obama's apparent uncertainty about when life begins, he's very certain that abortion should be available at anytime throughout a pregnancy-- even after the child is "accidentally" born during an abortion attempt.

If Obama truly is uncertain, I suggest he consider this moral tale that I heard Dr. Norman Geisler once tell years ago:
"If a hunter is walking through the woods and he sees something ruffling in the bushes, but isn't absolutely certain of its identity, is he wise if he shoots it, or wise if he waits to be sure what it is."
If a zygote or fetus is allowed to go full term, it always end up a child.
