Video: New Catholic Vote ad welcomes the era of Hopenchange

More than 200,000 views on YouTube in just three days, and well deserved. Evidently they didn’t get the memo from Doug Kmiec that the Democratic ticket was the more pro-life of the two this year, all that unpleasantness about infanticide aside. Try to bear it in mind later this week if, as expected, The One reverses Bush’s ban on funding international groups that promote abortion.

Exit quotation: “President Obama … has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women’s rights under Roe v. Wade a priority in his Adminstration.”

Isn’t this an argument for abortion?

Seriously, though, considering the demographic of those who avail themselves of abortion services, for every aborted future president, there are 250 future gangbangers. For every aborted future doctor, there are 75 future violent felons. For every aborted future taxpayer, there are three future net tax consumers. The argument against abortion, if there is one, must be made on a religious or ethical basis – something personal – not on a cost/benefit basis to society.

So the number of true American Catholics (”in a state of grace”) is probably around 114.


Why do you so conveniently forget the whole concept of “redemption”. Christians (that does include Catholics whether you think so or not) never claim to be perfect, just forgiven. I read it in a book somewhere and decided to take it on faith. BTW, even excommunicated Catholics can be redeemed; it just isn’t automatic.
One other point…Even in Catholic school in the 60’s nobody ever told me that heaven was reserved for Catholics. We do have our own gated community, however.

It’s a good thing the Republicans have become chicken shits and no longer talk of the awful practice of abortion!

At 11:00am this morning, the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Barack Obama is signing an Executive Order which restores Federal funding to be sent worldwide for the purpose of building and operating facilities to perform abortions.

The signing is to coincide with the arrival on the Washington Mall of an estimated 300,000 members of Pro-Life organizations who will respectfully request Obama to change his mind.

Well done. I’m not Catholic, but I’m glad they’re finally confronting this issue and voting pattern.

This is a great ad, it defuses the asinine argument that an individual’s future is determined at birth. As a pro-life agnostic, I would like to see the pro-life movement start using science instead of religion to argue for life. All scientific evidence you look at tells you it’s a human being who should be endowed by it’s creator with the right to life. It might go a long way to convincing secularists who don’t need a God to tell them it’s a human being because science does a good enough job of that.
