Why would a christian vote for Obama?

Forreal. Look what he stands for! 

He has proposed a bill that will increase abortion by an alarming number:
(from a news website: )
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.

The choice occurs much earlier than when a baby is made, it occurs when someone decides to have sex. Sex is not necessary for life like water, air and food. Although some people may think it is.

Melody, we are very much like the people in the Bible who sacrificed their children to the fire hoping that the "god" (false god) Molech would give them a good crop. They literally did that! Now, we sacrifice babies hoping that God will look the other way and bless us with wealth, happiness and relationships.

Basically we sow wild oats and pray for crop failure not realizing what we actually are reaping for ourselves.

Yes mother. Its true, it is the false idol of yourself. Your happiness, your finances, your shame, etc. But what hurts my heart and head is how deceived people have become. I know plenty of christians who voted this man into office fully knowing what he stands for. I just wonder why. Why can we so easily let go of something like human life for the sake of a good economical plan? For diversity?

I could literally write BOOKS about my stance on abortion.

But since we're on the same page... I'll spare you. AND... just say that it makes me so sad and yet pisses me off SO bad at the same time!!

Becuase the babis are dying, and these woman are SO lost... but it's the world we live in. It just... *sigh* ... I can't take it, sometimes.

And if you really want to get into an interesting discussion, let's talk about Birth Control and the differnt types, and such. I'm very schooled on all of it (mainly becuase of health issues I've had) so it'll be a thought-provoking and interesting discussion, no matter which side you stand on.

Sarah I would love to know your arguments/stance on birth control! I think everything is up for debate because I am not so arrogant to think I have all the answers, however I know I have the book that does :)

So what do you think?
