The Evil of Obama

by Steve Ray on March 3, 2009

Obama plans to remove ‘conscience clause’ for health-care personnel
(In other words, if you are a doctor or a nurse you WILL perform that abortion or you will lose your job or even possibly, undergo prosecution, or certainly persecution!)

President Barack Obama has directed the Department of Health and Human Services to rescind the “conscience clause” that protects health-care personnel from pressure to participate in procedures they regard as immoral, such as abortion. The “conscience clause” was established by outgoing President George W. Bush in an executive order he released in December 2008. President Obama– who has already issued an executive order to end the “Mexico City policy” barring taxpayer subsidies for abortion advocacy– could end this policy as well.

I thought those who agree with abortion were “pro-choice”. It really should be changed to pro-abortion because there seems to be no choice about it.

This action is bad enough without exaggerating. Some doctors could lose their jobs, but we’re not talking about prison. Yet.

STEVE RAY HERE: NOT INTENDING TO EXAGGERATE. BUT A JOURNEY BEGINS WITH THE FIRST STEP. LIKE YOU SAID — YET! WHEN WE ALLOW THE FIRST STEPS IN A LOSS OF FREEDOM, OTHER CIVILIZATIONS AND COUNTRIES SHOULD TEACH US THAT IT IS NOT LONG UNTIL WE LOSE ALL THAT FREEDOM.

How are we to prevent this? How are we to keep our freedom? Is it even God’s will for us that we keep our freedom, at this point in history? When Obama was running for president I said he was a demagogue riding a juggernaut. I truly think he is out to destroy us and is the scourge of God, a term last applied to Attila the Hun. Could Attila have prevailed if God did not allow it? Of course not! He is sovereign! In other words, what can happen in this world that God does not allow? Perhaps this is a time that He wishes to sort out who will be faithful to Him under increasingly severe trial. This is not to say we should not be politically active, not at all, but perhaps we should look at our expectations for outcomes.
