I'm not a big follower on politics and never have been. I usually vote in the presidential elections but unfortunately I missed the window to apply for an absentee ballot. I was perusing some blogs tonight and came across one about Senator Obama. I haven't really had that much of an opinion of him but if this is true, then I'm pretty disappointed that I can not vote this year because I would NOT be voting for him.

A Christian group has launched a new campaign to educate American voters on the radical and extremist abortion policies of Senator Obama. The campaign entitled, "Barack Obama: The Abortion President," will focus on how Mr. Obama wants taxpayers to pay for abortions.

The Christian Defense Coalition will have a news conference on Tuesday, July 8, at 11:00 A.M. to discuss this new campaign. The location of the news conference will be in front of Mr. Obama's senate office in the Hart Senate Office building on the Constitution Ave. NE entrance side.

A major part of the news conference will center on the fact that Senator Obama wants people of faith, Catholics and Evangelicals, to pay for abortions through their tax dollars.

The Chicago Tribune reported last year, when Senator Obama was "asked about his proposal for expanded access to health insurance, Obama said it would cover 'reproductive health services.' Contacted afterward, an Obama spokesperson said that included 'abortions.'

Although in recent days Senator Obama has tried to downplay his extremist views on abortion, his own Presidential website says, "...he has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women's rights under Roe v. Wade a priority as President."

It is important to note that Obama personally supports abortion:

"I've got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby." ~
