Des Moines, IA (LifeNews.com) -- Campaigning in Iowa over the weekend, pro-abortion presidential candidate Barack Obama attempted to moderate his views on abortion and abstinence education. However, he made it clear he has no interest in limiting or reducing abortions and his pro-abstinence stance is tempered by his backing of sexual education.
Obama is attempting to make it look like he is a moderate here when his views about abortion and sex education are extreme. He believes in sex education provided by Planned parenthood to children at the kindergarten level (5 - year - olds!). He also has a voting record that consistently supports abortion - even the horrific partial - birth abortion. This man is no moderate.
Twice, Obama voted NO to bills prohibiting tax funding of abortions. Yes, he thinks that we should pay for people to murder their children!
In April 2007, he voted YES on expanding research to more on embryonic stem cell lines, which involves the destructive of human life.
In July of 2006, he voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions.
In March 2005, he voted YES on $100M to reduce teen pregnancy by education & contraceptives. (Sex education starting at age 5 and contraceptives, which act as abortifacients.)
In February 2004, his wife, Michelle, sent out a fundraising letter, which actually stated her concern over the rise of conservatism in the Country, and that the ‘so-called’ partial-birth abortion was a legitimate medical procedure that should be protected.
In 2003, as chairman of the next Senate committee to which BAIPA (Born Alive Infants Protection Act) was sent, Obama prevented it from even getting a hearing. BAIPA stated that all live-born babies were guaranteed the same constitutional right to equal protection, whether or not they were wanted.
In 2001 and 2002, Obama was the only Illinois senator to speak out against the "Born Alive Infants Protection Act" on the Senate floor and in 2003 killed the bill in committee. This would have outlawed "live birth abortion," where labor is induced and an infant is delivered prematurely only to be put in some dark corner of a hospital until he/she expires on his/her own.
He voted against a cloning ban in 2000, but then turned around and voted for it in 2001.
In 1997, Obama twice voted “present” on an Illinois partial-birth abortion ban.
In addition, he is also a strong supporter of homosexual marriages.
As you can see, his views are extreme and his record is that of a hard - core radical liberal, anti-Catholic, anti-Christian in every aspect on human life and family issues.
