Pro-abortion President Barack Obama

Pro-lifers must unite to defeat President Obama.  Why?  Let me count just some of the ways:

1.  Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton: These companion 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decisions overturned the laws in 50 states and gave us widespread abortion on demand.  Next January, when a president is sworn into office for four years, one justice on the Supreme Court will be 74 years old, two will be 76, and one will be 79 It is very likely that changes in the makeup of the Supreme Court will occur during the next four-year presidential term.  If President Obama is re-elected and has the opportunity to place one additional pro-abortion vote on the Supreme Court, virtually all existing limits on abortion — including the Hyde Amendment and the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act — could be invalidated.

2.  ObamaCare:  President Obama’s health care law will enshrine abortion and rationing of life-saving medical care in our medical system for generations to come.

2a. Through ObamaCare, the Administration is forcing religiously affiliated organizations to cover contraception and sterilization in their health insurance plans, even in cases where the institution opposes it on moral or conscience grounds. With no conscience clause protection, the Obama Administration is free to order insurance plans to also cover elective abortion on demand. (See

3.  Mexico City Policy:  President Obama is exporting our abortion policy to other countries. United States tax dollars are going to organizations that promote and perform abortion in other countries.  Millions of children around the world will die because of our tax funds.

4.  United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA):  Our tax dollars are also going to an organization that supports China’s population control program which uses forced abortion as a method of population control.

5.  Conscience Laws: The Obama administration is doing its best to force health care providers to participate in abortions, by weakening and overriding the protections that previously protected the right to refuse to participate in providing abortions.

All of the Republican candidates are pro-life.  Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum all support the reversal of Roe v. Wade, they oppose using tax dollars to pay for abortion, they oppose giving tax dollars to organizations (like Planned Parenthood) that perform abortions, and they all have stated emphatically that they would repeal ObamaCare.

Unborn babies will be well served with any of these men in the White House. National Right to Life PAC will work aggressively for whichever of these candidates becomes the opponent to President Obama.
