Obama and abortion

Two links of note:

This article from the Washington Post,

and this article from Politico.

I'll give him this. He doesn't tick me off as much as liberal Catholic politicians like Guliani and Kerry, even though he's more extreme than both of them. At least he's consistant. This is a man who regards protectable life to begin, not only at birth, but sometime after biological birth. Pragmatic to the end, Obama regards the State accountable only to individuals who have been born, and perhaps driven home from the hospital.

A line from his political review is chilling: "Expanded access to prenatal education and heath care facilities will far more likely serve the very real state interest in preventing increasing numbers of children from being born in to lives of pain and despair."

To this pro-lifer, the words "preventing increasing numbers of children from being born" stands out in stark relief. And I am not relieved.
