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.
