Obama sorry he voted to save Terri Schiavo
By Grant Swank

Barack Obama regrets that he voted to help save Terri Schiavo's life.

Obama is the Agent of Death.

He is pro-choice to the extreme, applauded as the chief endorser of Planned Parenthood and every other abortuary creator. He supports partial-birth abortion with an enthusiasm unequaled, except for Hillary Clinton.

Obama will be pro-death if seated in the White House, though he claims to be a Christian, having met Jesus in his home Chicago church. Christ endorses life, not death. Therefore, the Jesus that Obama met is not the Jesus of Scripture. It is the anti-Jesus from the Dark Side. His hypocrisy is evidence of apostasy, especially when he repeatedly endorses anti-biblical ethics while claiming to be on a Jesus mission.

Per Focus on the Family's CitizenLink: "During the 20th Democratic presidential debate Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Barack Obama said the one vote he would take back was his 2005 U.S. Senate vote to help save the life of Terri Schiavo, a brain-injured Florida woman.

"'We adjourned with a unanimous agreement that eventually allowed Congress to interject itself into that decision-making process of the families,' Obama said. 'It wasn't something I was comfortable with, but it was not something that I stood on the floor and stopped. And I think that was a mistake.'

"Schiavo was not dying nor terminally ill; she was not brain-dead nor in a coma. Yet for seven years, her husband, Michael, sought to have her feeding tube removed. Congress intervened toward the end, but it was not enough. Schiavo died March 31, 2005, after 13 days of court-ordered dehydration and starvation.

"Jill Stanek, a pro-life speaker and blogger, called Obama 'utterly pro-death.'"

What is tragic is that with Obama's sponsoring gospel concerts in the South as well as speaking from pulpits, quoting the Bible and speaking of faith, prayer and God, countless numbers who profess to being born again Christians believe that Obama is one of them.

He is not. He is never going to be as long he holds to anti-biblical morality. He is the enemy first class.

"'He lives in 'opposite world,' where he is an environmentalist, to the extreme, and very pro-animal,' Stanek said. 'But when it comes to the sanctity of human life, he takes every stand against it, up to, and including, babies who have been aborted alive.

"'His priorities are completely unintelligible.'"

Obamamania has swept the nation. He could very well make it into the Oval Office. Hillary Clinton and John McCain look bland alongside Obama, especially to the youth. This is a most dangerous state for the nation.

Biblical believers must pray that neither Obama or Clinton reach the White House. They are both charlatans, claiming to be "Christians" when in fact pagan.

"Tuesday wasn't the first time Obama talked about his 'mistake.'

"During an April 2007 debate, he said: 'I think professionally the biggest mistake that I made was when I first arrived in the Senate. There was a debate about Terri Schiavo, and a lot of us, including me, left the Senate with a bill that allowed Congress to intrude where it shouldn't have.'

"Bruce Hausknecht, judicial analyst for Focus on the Family Action, said Obama has been disingenuous.

"'How can Obama reconcile his cavalier dismissal of Terri Schiavo's predicament as a 'family matter,' when he has stated he wants to appoint judges who are 'going to protect people who may be vulnerable in the political process, the outsider, the minority, those who are vulnerable, those who don't have a lot of clout'?

"'Whether it's abortion or end-of-life issues,' Hausknecht said, 'he's been consistently anti-life.'"
