You've heard it before. But this posting isn't about a third term for the King. It's about his stance on third term abortion. And his utter silence on Kermit Gosnell...the abortionist who laughed when he slit a baby's neck. Who mocked how long the baby was. Who had no regard for life. Not even women who came into his clinic.
And this past weekend, our President paraded a grieving parent of the Newtown massacre. He let her do his weekend address. And his claim..."if we could save one child..." has to be one of the most hypocritical statements of his Presidency. Because if he cared about the children, he would do his best to stop the slaughter of millions of babies in our nation via abortion. And not only that, he would have been the first to run to the podium when the revelations of Gosnell came out. Just like he did with Trayvon Martin. Actions speak loud, Mr. President.

From Human Events:
Why Obama and the Left don’t care about Kermit Gosnell
REPORTER: “In all situations including the late term thing?”
OBAMA: “I am pro-choice. I believe that women make responsible choices and they know better than anybody the tragedy of a difficult pregnancy and I don’t think that it’s the government’s role to meddle in that choice.”
– President Barack Obama, 2003
You can’t be clearer than that. Obama, who has the state meddling in virtually every aspect of our lives, doesn’t want the state to do anything on abortion, except to keep it legal in all circumstances and subsidize it. Surely there has to be a more compelling reason to kill a child who is viable, or mere days from being so, than a difficult pregnancy? I hate to break it to the president, but most pregnancies are difficult to some extent. Is morning sickness a difficulty strong enough to justify an abortion? Is financial hardship? Is a baby with a disability like Down syndrome a future difficulty to be aborted? He’s never said.
Late-term abortions are rarely needed for purely medical reasons, yet there were around 18,000 late-term abortions performed in this country last year. These are babies—or fetuses, if you like—with advanced neural development, including, often, the ability to feel pain. These are babies who are “viable” outside the womb but are denied the chance to live.
Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia doctor who, among other horrible acts, was killing babies with scissors after “botching” late-term abortions. The doctor, it was reported in 2011, appeared confused by the charges against him at his arraignment. (His trial that is now being rigorously ignored by the media.) And if you’re the kind of guy whose idea of a “botched” medical procedure involves someone surviving, well, perhaps being charged with murder is a distinction without much of a difference. What distinguishes a late-term abortionist from an abortionist who uses scissors to sever the spinal cords of babies born alive is little more than a matter of tools and technique. The results, and the facts, are the same.
Gosnell was charged with his crimes only a week before the president released a celebratory statement for the thirty-eighth anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court decision that declared abortion a constitutional right.
While the media was barely covering the Gosnell story, Obama hailed “reproductive freedom” as a “fundamental principle.”
