Barack Obama is a charlatan on abortion. He has pledged to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which would increase the number of abortions across the country by overturning pro-life reforms. Click HERE to watch Obama’s 2007 speech at Planned Parenthood.
Republicans For Family Values — News Release

CHICAGO – Peter LaBarbera, founder of Republicans For Family Values (RFFV), said Barack Obama’s ideological devotion to both the homosexual and abortion agendas should weigh more heavily than non-moral issues as committed Christians weigh their vote tomorrow.
RFFV has published an essay, “Obama is FOR Gay Marriage even as He’s Against it,” to illustrate the Democratic candidate’s double-speak on “same-sex marriage.” Obama has promised homosexual activists that he would work to fully repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) — signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1996. This issue has been largely ignored by the media, and John McCain has given Obama a pass on it.
“The Obama spin machine has done a con job on evangelicals and Catholics,” LaBarbera said. “Obama courts Christians by saying he supports traditional marriage. Meanwhile, he does everything he can to support the homosexual ‘marriage’ agenda – including his promise to “gay” activists to repeal DOMA.
“Similarly, Obama courts people of faith by pledging to ‘reduce the number of abortions.’ Yet he opposed an Illinois bill to give human rights to babies ‘born alive’ through botched abortions. And he blasted a Supreme Court ruling upholding a law banning heinous partial-birth abortions (infanticide).
“Talk about ‘audacity’: here’s a politician who lectures America about reducing abortions — when he promised to sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which would eviscerate pro-life laws across the country, thus increasing the number of abortions.
“I don’t know what’s worse – palling around with an unrepentant American terrorist or palling around with Planned Parenthood,” LaBarbera said, urging pro-life voters to watch the YouTube video of Obama’s friendly 2007 speech to Planned Parenthood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUl99id2SvM.
Regarding Obama’s pro-homosexual agenda, RFFV reveals that:
- Obama congratulated homosexual activists for “getting married” at a San Francisco Democratic gay event;
- Though Obama says he “personally” opposes “gay marriage,” he supports identical federal “civil unions,” saying, “I believe civil unions should include the same legal rights that accompany a marriage license.” This has led Obama to support a bill to allow homosexual partners to immigrate to the United States just like married spouses;
- Obama promises homosexual activists that he will use the bully pulpit to advocate for homosexual adoptions – which would place children in homes that are motherless or fatherless by design.
