National Catholic Register: "Once You Say That Some People Don’t Have a Right to Life, Where Do You Stop?"
The editors of National Catholic Register write in the August 24-30 issue:
... Is it shocking that a man who refuses to protect infants born alive is seriously contending for the presidency? It shouldn’t be. Not in a world where we say we support people’s decision to kill or keep their own kids — whichever they decide.
The only acceptable plank for an American political party should be one that reiterates what the Declaration of Independence says. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Barack Obama started out deciding that unborn children didn’t have the right to life, and it wasn’t long before he added “accidental” newborns to his list. Next came the unwanted wife, Terri Schiavo. The Senate tried to save her when a court allowed her husband to starve her to death in the hospital. Obama called the Senate’s attempt a mistake.
Once you say that some people don’t have a right to life, where do you stop?
