Barack Obama (NoBama on Human Rights for the Fetus)

"Whether you're looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity is above my pay grade."

- Answer to the question: 'At what point does a baby get human rights?'

**I'm not sure why Obama agreed to show up at the Rick Warren function, because he had to know this question would come up, and also had to know it would be the most important question for those who follow Rick Warren or any other evangelical Christian group.....Especially, if he was planning on giving such a flippant response.

Personally, abortion is nowhere near the top issue when choosing the president, but to millions of Americans this is THE ISSUE (both for and against).

I come from a scientific perspective, and having worked in a pediatric office for the past 14+ years I don't understand how anyone can argue the humanity of the fetus. Every year I see premature children born younger and younger, and am never amazed to see the age of viability drop closer to conception.......Ten years ago children born at 30 weeks gestational age were considered unviable. Today it's not rare to see children born at 25 who end up living perfectly healthy lives. With the advances of modern science it seems almost anything is possible. Who knows what tomorrow holds?

That said, Obama is one of the Senate's leading abortion advocates (conception to 9-months), and there's little doubt he would continue this path as president. This fact seems to prove he believes it is well within his "pay grade" to make such a decision about when life starts......It won't be a big reason to vote against him for me (I have plenty of others), but I know it will be for many of you.**
