In his address to the nation on the use of chemical weapons in Syria, Barack Obama appealed to the violation of the human dignity of men, women and children as a reason for taking action against the Assad regime for its then-alleged use of those abhorrent agents. Unfortunately, all that did was to underline his own hypocrisy in regard to human dignity. As the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history — even more so than Clinton! — Obama has willingly overseen and even promoted the overt violation of the human dignity of more than 5 million unborn children (thus far), by brutal dismemberment (surgical abortions), chemical attack (saline abortions) and asphyxiation/starvation (RU-486 and IUDs). In fact, he continues to press for more, by mandating the use of other abortifacient and embryocidal agents, such as the morning-after pill. It is no surprise, then, that his dithering and buck-passing in the area of genuine humanitarian need is equally overt!
When we, as a nation, become intelligent enough to elect a president with truly moral principles, then — and only then — will the United States regain the enviable world role that it had at the end of World War II.
