Sen. Moloch H. Obama Celebrates Abortion, Warns Supreme Court Could Reverse Roe

(Hat tip:

Washington, DC ( -- Democratic presidential candidate [Moloch H.] Obama celebrated Roe v. Wade on Tuesday as hundreds of thousands of pro-life advocates came to the nation's capital to condemn it. Obama said he's worried the Supreme Court is just one vote away from overturning the infamous ruling that allowed virtually unlimited abortions.

"Thirty-five years after the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, it's never been more important to protect," legalized abortions.

Obama said the Supreme Court's 5-4 decision last April in upholding the national ban on partial-birth abortions could be a harbinger of things to come.

"With one more vacancy on the Supreme Court, we could be looking at a majority hostile to a women's fundamental right to choose for the first time since Roe v. Wade," Obama said.

"The next president may be asked to nominate that Supreme Court justice. That is what is at stake in this election," he added.

Obama, an Illinois senator and former member of the state's legislature, said he has a consistent 100% pro-abortion voting record with NARAL and Planned Parenthood.

"Throughout my career, I've been a consistent and strong supporter of [abortion]," he said.

Trying to contrast his pro-abortion views with those of Hillary Clinton and John Edwards, Obama said he was the only Democratic candidate to speak out against an abortion ban in South Dakota and against those trying to close a new Planned Parenthood abortion business in Aurora, Illinois.

Obama said that "Roe v. Wade is about more than a woman's right to choose; it's about equality."

"And so to truly honor that decision, we need to update the social contract so that women can free themselves, and their children, from violent relationship," Obama said ironically.

If they had any honesty or integrity at all they would:

1. Stop saying that they're not pro-abortion. If abortion is all they say, how can they not be for it?

2. Introduce a Constitutional amendment enshrining abortion in the Constitution, so that Roe would not be in danger of being overturned. We've been dealing with this for 30 years, with no end in sight. We're trying to overturn Roe, they're afraid we will. Our government provides a solution for this; but neither side will use it.

And how, exactly, is Roe v. Wade about equality, Senator?
