Incredibly Powerful Pro-Life Video Featuring…President Obama?

You’ll never believe he said it.

President Obama is responsible for some of the most moving pro-life rhetoric I’ve heard:

This is our first task: caring for our children. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged.

[. . .]

If there’s even one step we can take to save a child, then surely we have an obligation to try.

Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard? Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?

President Obama was, of course, talking about the Sandy Hook tragedy. But his words apply equally to the tragedy of abortion, legal in America 40 years this month. And when his heartfelt speech is applied to the images and action of the pro-life movement, well, I challenge you not to be moved. If we ever had a president who spoke like this about abortion, so openly, so passionately, so unafraid, it would be the fulfillment of our hopes and prayers these past four decades.

Please watch this brilliant video from Blackstone Films. Like this post, share it, spread it far and wide. This video speaks truth to power so eloquently, juxtaposes the hypocrisy of our concern for our children against the ongoing promotion of their legal slaughter so perfectly, it needs to be seen by as many people as possible. This has the power to wake people up. Let’s get this video millions of views.

Spread the word.

    This is what I was thinking as I heard the president speak. I wanted to ask him what the difference was between those children today and who they were 6 1/2 – 7 1/2 years earlier.

    This is what the new evangelization is supposed to be! Thanks to Blackstone Films for helping lead the way!

    He meant “born” children, he could care less about the unborn. Those innocent human beings don’t matter to him one hoot.

    Notice that he said children, not fetuses. Most Americans understand there is a difference, hence the reason that “personhood” laws and amendments fail in popular votes even in the most conservative states.

    With all the wealth of the Catholic Church, why haven’t they ever bothered to lobby for laws protecting a fetus? Why don’t they provide help and relief to women that are pregnant so that they can choose an option other than abortion? Certainly one of the priceless treasures in their vaults would be worth selling if they could save one “life.” Instead they continue to horde cash and artworks while standing by idly while these “atrocities” are committed. It’s almost like even they don’t believe their own rhetoric.

    Additionally, how much money has the Vatican and Catholic Churches spent trying to ban gay people from getting a marriage license at City Hall? It’s was MILLIONS just last year alone and clearly that battle is a losing one even in the near term. Banning gay people from getting a piece of paper and the thousands of legal protections that go along with it are more important than saving fetuses from destruction? Apparently, as those are the priorities of the Church herself.

      “Notice that he said children, not fetuses.” Because to him fetuses are not human beings even though he was once a fetus and had his mother decided to destroy him through abortion, well, we would have another President now, wouldn’t we?

      “Most Americans understand there is a difference,”
      That is simply not true, most Americans, including the majority of young people see abortion for the abomination it is. Also, even if the vast majority of people on this planet were to say it isn’t human, the biological fact says it is, so if most people want to believe a lie, they are free to do so.

      You tell us how the Church spends “billions” in banning gay marriage which has nothing to do with this post, but you don’t provide the sources for those billions.

      Your anti-Catholic propaganda is unbelievable and something which should not be allowed in a Catholic forum. How would you feel if I were to walk into your house and throw garbage all over the place? I suspect you would give me a swift kick in the posterior and send me back packing, and rightly so.

      “Banning gay people from getting a piece of paper.”
      To us marriage is much more than a piece of paper, it is a sacrament. I find it courious that you would find it important to defend a “piece of paper.”

      “Most Americans understand…”
      a) polling data suggests that most Americans do not “understand there is a difference”
      b) most Romans went to the Colosseum. Forgive me for being hesitant to base laws solely on what a populace supposedly “understands”

      • Philip D.

        The coliseum held .0012% of the population of Rome. Most citizens certainly did not go to the coliseum as that would have been physically impossible.

    • Joe M

      The difference is superficial. The word “fetus” is a reference to a human being who has not been born yet. They are still a human being. That is scientific fact. It is the abortion movement that uses semantics to try and blur this truth.

      Furthermore, the Catholic Church is among the greatest charities in the world in terms of donations used to help people in need. Your suggestion that the Church does not help pregnant women in need is baseless.

      • Philip D.

        This just simply isn’t true. Catholic “charities” gets a gross majority of its funding from the federal government, not from the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church has abandoned charity in favor of petty political culture wars.

        • Joe M

          Where the money comes from does not change the fact that your claim is false. Contrary to your statement, Catholic Charities DO help the poor, including pregnant women. Catholic Charities USA is the second largest social service provider in the US. Second only to the government.

          If the Catholic Church has abandoned charity as you claim, what is your explanation for them being the second largest social service provider in the US? They accidentally helped more poor people than anyone else?

          Furthermore, if we do go by private donations alone, they received the 3rd largest amount. On that measure, the facts still contradict your baseless accusation that the Catholic Church has abandoned charity. Of course, financial donations are not the end of the story. You have to consider hours of volunteer work. I suspect that if you count the value of time put in by Catholics at soup kitchens and other projects, their total private effort would be the highest in the nation.

      1. Well, I typed in “definition of child” into google and this was the first thing that came up: “A young human being below the age of full physical development or below the legal age of majority.”
      Yup, I’d say that fits. It is certainly a young (very young) human, that has not attained full physical development and is below the legal age of majority. Would you look at that. The unborn are children.

      2. I think you are falling under the delusion that the Church is some massive treasure vault or bank that hold tens of millions of excess dollars that could be given out to the poor. Did you know that the operating budget of the University of Notre Dame is higher than that of the Vatican, which runs the Catholic Church throughout the world? You also seem to be deluding yourself into thinking that
      a. The Catholic Church puts no money into the pro-life movement, and
      b. The Catholic Church provides no relief to the poor and struggling.
      Your tragic ignorance really shows here. Also, the Vatican isn’t putting priceless artwork down into secret vaults never to be seen again. These work belong to all people and give testament to the glory of God. Jesus never complained about the Temple being to opulent because He knew it was meant to glorify God and stand as a testament to His people. The same logic applies with the Vatican.

      3. Could I please see the documentation comparing the number of dollars gone to fight gay marriage compared to those that went to fight abortion? I really hope you aren’t just pulling these out of thin air and hoping to draw realistic conclusions from them.
