President George W. Bush proclaims Jan. 18, 2009, National Sanctity of Human Life Day.*
The incoming President thinks so little of states’ rights, parental rights, the rights of the unborn, and majority opinion, he caters to minority voices to promote the culture of death.
It is a sad, tragic, terrible day in America.
“Obama has at least been forthright in proclaiming that the very first thing he will do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act (F.O.C.A.), which codifies Roe in national law and strikes down every single protective restriction to abortion in all 50 states, including parental notification and partial-birth abortion bans.”
“On January 20th, 47-year-old Barack Hussein Obama will be sworn in as the 44th president of the United States of America, with millions of adoring sycophants streaming into Washington, DC, to catch a glimpse of their idol. Two days later, somber pro-lifers will once again gather in the same city to observe another anniversary of the worst Supreme Court decision since Dred Scott, and to mourn the senseless slaughter of 50 million unborn babies over the last 36 years.”
“Some people think after 35 years of ceaseless controversy since the Supreme Court’s ruling in Roe v. Wade that abortion is an “old” issue better dropped. But as my friend and prolific author Randy Alcorn wrote in his small book “Why Pro-Life?” ‘Abortion has set us on a dangerous course. We may come to our senses and back away from the slippery slope. Or we may follow it to its inescapable conclusion – a society in which the powerful, for their self-interest, determine which human beings will live and which will die.’ ”
“NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim January 18, 2009, as National Sanctity of Human Life Day. I call upon all Americans to recognize this day with appropriate ceremonies and to underscore our commitment to respecting and protecting the life and dignity of every human being. “
