At the Saddleback forum several weeks ago, Barack Obama insisted that while he may be pro-choice, he is not pro-abortion and he said that one of his goals as President would be to reduce the number of abortions here in the US.
However, this is merely political posturing on his part, since Obama told Planned Parenthood in July of 2007 that "the first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act. That's the first thing I'd do."
Yes, that's the very first thing he would do. And that's probably one of the reasons why the National Journal voted him "the most liberal senator in 2007".
Many believe that the Freedom of Choice Act, if passed, would legalize partial-birth abortion. Others contend that the bill, if passed, would increase abortions by 125,000 per year. But one thing is for certain, Obama is evading the truth when he says he would work to reduce the number of abortions here in the US, because if Obama is elected President and he signs the Freedom of Choice Act, the number of abortions here in the US would increase dramatically.
Fact: Barack Obama is pro-abortion, despite his claims to the contrary.
