Star Parker: “Where Is Obama On Late-Term Abortion?”

Asks the conservative Republican commentator in D.C.: “The House passed an historic piece of legislation last week that prohibits late-term abortions. The ‘Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act,’ introduced by Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz., with 187 co-sponsors, passed in the House by a vote of 228-196. The measure prohibits abortion 20 weeks — five months — or more after conception. As Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., who led the debate on the bill, noted in her remarks, science is clear that at this stage, at the end of the second trimester of pregnancy, the unborn child feels pain. This initiative was a response in the House to the tragedy and outrage of the case of Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortion doctor recently convicted of murder of three children in late term abortions.”

She continues her commentary: “Yet despite the clarity that a child in the womb after five months is living, moving, and feeling, our president, who likes to present himself as a man of compassion, not only wasted no time in indicating he will veto this bill, but he doesn’t even want to have the conversation. Immediately after it passed the House, the Executive Office of the President issued a statement saying that this bill was ‘an assault on a woman’s right to choose’ and that if presented with this bill, the president’s ‘senior advisers would recommend that he veto’ it. Does a woman’s ‘right to choose’ really include murder?”

More: “Today a black man sits in the White House and serves as president of this country. But at the time of the nation’s founding, black skin was enough to disallow a man from being legally considered a man, deserving of those inalienable rights enumerated in the Declaration of Independence. Americans look back in disbelief that this was once so. That someone who looked just like our current president could not only not have ever dreamed about leading the nation, but couldn’t even dream about being treated like a human being. We’re still having a hard time with words. Today we have a big problem with the word ‘life’ that, according to our founding Declaration, we all have a right to. And, perhaps with no small amount of irony, the black man in the White House, who once might not have been considered a “man”, cannot seem to accept that a child — growing, moving and feeling in the womb of its mother — is ‘life.'”
