Oh, The Irony
Wednesday, July 16, 2008
Catholics for Obama (!) is circulating a petition to protest McCain's appointment of Deal Hudson to some committee or other.

I laughed out loud when I read the text - written by the Catholics for Obama site:

Click here to sign a petition asking McCain to make sure his Catholic advisors represent authentic Catholic values

How about asking OBAMA to represent authentic Catholic values - like letting babies live, giving them medical treatment, and not endorsing the execution of criminals who are not convicted murderers?

I know nothing about Mr. Hudson and I am not endorsing or slamming him - just the hypocrites at the C4O site who steadfastly refuse to reply to any question or comment I have on Obama's baby mangling platform.

A sample interaction:

The reason Obama is linked with voting for infanticide is, in part, due to his discussion of SB 1093 (see page 84)

Obama said:
"...the testimony during the committee indicated that one of the key concerns was -- is that there was a method of abortion, an induced abortion, where the -- fetus or child as -- as some might describe it, is still temporarily alive outside the womb."

-- temporarily alive. Obama thought it would restrict abortion too much to provide medical care to infants who were born alive, which is why they would be only 'temporarily alive'. Obama thinks 'temporarily alive babies outside their mother womb' should not be defined as persons.

He goes on to say that to require doctors to provide medical care to a baby born alive, would be to define them as a person, and if we define them (babies born alive) as people, it would restrict abortion.

(Same document, page 84). It had nothing to do with restricting abortion and everything to do with helping ALREADY BORN babies. It specifically states that an abortion which may result in an alive baby should not take place unless there is a doctor present who can provide care to the baby, should it live through the abortionists procedure.

...straw man discussion in comments regarding health insurance formularies and birth control pills...

So, doctors don't want to stay on hold, and somehow that's my fault because I think that the risks of BC don't outweigh the benfits???

And, why not respond to my original comment and the Obama quotes, instead of going off on a tangent about insurance company formularies?

and finally the reply!

Why bother?

Why bother, indeed. I bother to post over there, because you never know who may be reading the comments and it is a way to at least have the opposing view represented.
