On Senator Barack Obama & Race

March 20th, 2008
A good friend sent me an email with a link to Sen. Obama’s speech on Race in America.

I sent the following reply.

Hi! It is always good to hear from you.

I appreciate the email. It takes some courage to stand up for what we believe is right.
While I listened to the whole speech as best I could, I could not help seeing the direct correlation of Senator Obama’s issue on race and that of abortion.

He started his speech with our Nation’s “Founding Father’s” and the drawing up and signing of The Declaration of Independence. Declaring our Nation’s freedom from the oppression of the mighty power of England. We had no voice, under their yoke.

He mentioned, something that I didn’t know, that being, at the drawing up of “The Declaration” our Founding Fathers put off the question of slavery for 20 yrs. Many hearing his remarks would think that was a mistake.

That reminded me of the signing of Roe Vs. Wade. The Supreme Court put off the question of when human life begins.

Common Sense would dictate that the Justices should have answered that question first. Then, once the issue is clear, they can make an informed decision.

His speech was on Race in America. I found many of his remarks “fit” the abortion issue. I will only share a few here. Sen. Obama stated; “Race is an issue that we [America] simply can not ignore!”

Common Sense would say; “Abortion, that is, the plight of the unborn, is an issue that America can simply not afford to ignore!”
Just because Americans have the POWER to claim that a whole “class” of human beings are not human and do not deserve to live, that fact, does not give us the right to do so!

Sen. Obama draws his speech to a close by quoting a teaching of “the religions of the world”; “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you!”

I agree.
