He has proposed a bill that will increase abortion by an alarming number:
(from a news website: http://www.lifenews.com/nat4359.html )
With so much attention on the economy, one area of federal legislation that can be overlooked is abortion. An old and dangerous bill that will increase abortions by an enormous amount is being resurrected by abortion advocates: the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA). H.R. 1964 and S.1173...
The U.S. Census Bureau gives us projections for 2009 of females age 15-44 in each of these states. Then it’s a simple matter of cross-referencing the number of women of childbearing age in each state with each abortion restriction, and applying Dr. New’s ratio. The grand total number of abortions reduced by these laws is 124,947.6, per year.
Even with this minimum, that’s 125,000 children that were not killed this year because we have these laws, and 125,000 children (added to the existing 1.3 million abortions) who will be killed in 2009 and every year after if FOCA is passed. FOCA is indeed a staggering expansion of abortion, both in principle and in actual lives lost.
How could a christian knowingly support the murder of so many babies you ask?
The answer is: I don't know.
If someone can not hold life as sacred and a better thing to vote on than our economy or gay marriage? It makes me so sad! I work all day with children. I look down at the babies I hold and wonder how someone could supported shoving a pair of scissors into their head and mashing their brains and then calling it being "pro choice". Women should have the right to choose. Choose salvation or hell. Just like everyone else. And killing your child for the sake of your own personal freedom and financial security should be a capital offense.
