Obama’s policies violate human rights

November 1, 2012

Lately the political talk is about social justice and civil and human rights issues.

The greatest social justice and human right is the right to life. Without life, no other right is necessary or applies.

At the end of our lives we will have to account for our actions (or lack of action).

So, if we have not defended the unborn by casting our vote for the party which allows less abortion in this country, then maybe our priorities are misguided. There is no greater obligation than to defend the helpless unborn child's rights. We must defend life from the "womb to the tomb."

This economy is a result of a culture of death that has killed 55 million consumers through abortion since 1973. Can we expect God to favor a country that kills his children in their mother's womb and calls it legal?

And Planned Parenthood? It should be called Planned no-parenthood. It's the business that does abortions not mammograms. I have heard Abby Johnson share the story of when she worked for Planned Parenthood. She tells the truth about Planned Parenthood in her book "Unplanned."

When I hear comments that it is the "mother's right to choose" the response will and should always be "it is the baby's right to choose."

As an independent business owner it should be my right to decide which benefits I provide my employees. Through the HHS mandate, which is part of the health bill known as Obamacare, I am being forced to provide benefits to my employees which are intrinsically evil and deny my personal religious beliefs and the freedoms on which this country was founded.

Be it Republican or Democrat, no person has the right to make legal the killing of a baby, to force an employer to provide benefits which would kill an innocent child or to provide funding for abortions through Planned Parenthood.

The Obama administration's policies violate the most basic human right - the right to be born.

If you have not yet voted, or are uncertain as to which party to vote for in this election because you don't like either candidate, I encourage you to vote for the ticket that supports "less evil." In this election that would be the Romney/Ryan vote.

We will be held accountable for our actions, or lack of action.
