Barack Obama says his biggest mistake was to vote to help Terri Schiavo avoid being starved and dehydrated to death, according to LifeSiteNews.
“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,” Obama said at the debate. “And as a constitutional law professor, I knew better … and I think that’s an example of inaction, and sometimes that can be as costly as action.”
Obama was referring to his vote in March 2005, when the Senate passed a bill by unanimous consent that permitted Schiavo’s parents and brother to make their case before federal courts to keep their brain-injured daughter alive via feeding tube. Terri Schiavo’s husband Michael, who had guardianship over her while engaged in public adultery with a girlfriend, had a state judge remove her feeding tube, dehydrating her to death, because he claimed she never wanted to live in a so-called persistent vegetative state (PVS).
Seems pretty outrageous that anyone, much less a presidential candidate, would say voting to help keep a disabled woman alive, helping her avoid the death by starvation and dehydration her husband (who was living with another woman and fathering children by the other woman) was determined to subject her to.
But then, this is par for the course for a man who vehemently refused to protect the lives of infants born alive after failed attempts to abort them.
It’s also in character for a man who has pledged to torpedo the sanctity of marriage and undermine the American family.
And it’s also not a surprise from someone who would go on video and pledge to gut the United States military.
How can any sane American even consider voting for Barack Obama?
I’m not big into prophetic predictions of judgment and such, but I don’t see how, if the majority of Americans elects Barack Obama to the presidency, this nation can escape judgment on a truly Biblical scale.
