"For if there is one law that we can be most certain of, it is the law that binds people of all faiths and no faith together. It's no coincidence that it exists in Christianity and Judaism; in Islam and Hinduism; in Buddhism and humanism. It is, of course, the Golden Rule -- the call to treat one another as we wish to be treated. The call to love. The call to serve. To do what we can to make a difference in the lives of those with whom we share the same brief moment on this Earth".
Barack Obama, Notre Dame 05/17/09
Today,over the objections of many Catholic faithful, President Obama delivered His commencement address to the 2009 graduating class at the University of Notre Dame. In this address he referenced the words of Jesus Christ "To do unto others as you would have them to do unto you". Has our President, in light of his support of unrestricted abortion, thought about the unborn child? He has said we must seek to follow "The Golden Rule", and yet he, in his unwavering support for, abortion at any time for any reason,seems to have failed to look at the perspective of the unborn, and through empathy, and extend to them, the same protections under law, as he would himself would expect.
At one time in our history, the Supreme Court declared,In the Dread Scott decision, that the Black race had no Constitutional rights, and that, in fact, they were not persons. In this decision, the Supreme Court said that the Federal Government could not prohibit slavery in the States. Something very similar has happened with the unborn. In the Roe vs Wade decision, In this decision the court basically said, the States could not prohibit abortion The Supreme Court has,over the course of time , made the unborn, non persons. In doing so they have repeated the mistakes of the past.
Our nation fought a terrible Civil War to free the black man. That war made it possible for this President, at this awesomely historic time to become President. Truly a miracle, and a sign of how far we have come. Would that Mr. Obama give similar concern to the plight of the unborn , and seek to emancipate them from the oppression of abortion!
