Santorum Disagrees With Obama On Abortion

Rick Santorum discusses abortion and President Barack Obama's stance on the issue during an interview on the "Online With Terry Jeffrey" program:

Massachusetts Conservative Bob Parks identified this video and has commented the above video on his site - Black and Right. Extract from Park's comments:
I produced and edited the interview hosted by CNS News’ Terry Jeffrey and while Epstein’s obvious take is that Santorum’s a racist, I will say this: he is an obnoxious Pittsburgh Steelers fan. How do I know this? Because we talked for a few minutes prior to the interview; something he may not have wanted to do if he didn’t like black people.

As far as his questioning how Obama could support abortion rights as a black man (and Epstein’s brow being raised by this), maybe she should do a little research and look up the Negro Project, how liberal icon Margaret Sanger targeted blacks for extermination with Planned Parenthood, and how wonderful it was that almost 60% of black babies were aborted last year in New York City alone.

Barack Obama should be able to say something about this specifically and if Politico’s Jennifer Epstein doesn’t understand this, maybe she shouldn’t be writing about it. If she does and decided to write a hit piece on Rick Santorum anyway, that says something about her integrity and what she must think of black people.

Jan. 18: Remembering Roe v. Wade

Life Advocates Remember
Millions Lost to Abortion
by Jennifer Mesko, CitizenLink: In the 38 years since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in Roe v. Wade, an estimated 48 million preborn babies have lost their lives. This weekend, hundreds of thousands of life advocates will take part in events across the nation to mark the anniversary.

The national March for Life, which first took place in January 1974, is scheduled for Monday on the National Mall.  March for Life founder Nellie Gray said the goal is simple: “To overturn Roe versus Wade, no exception, no compromise.”

President Ronald Reagan and both George H.W. and George W. Bush addressed the attendees by phone. President Barack Obama has been invited to do the same.
The weekend events will culminate with the 29th annual Rose Dinner on Monday night. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., will be the keynote speaker.
  • Also taking place in Washington on Monday will be Faith and Action’s National Clergy Conference for the Pre-born. The special clergy meeting is held on Capitol Hill in remembrance of the victims and in celebration of life.
  • Elsewhere, Missouri’s first March for Life is set for Saturday. Nebraska’s Walk for Life is Jan. 29.
  • Walk for Life West Coast takes place Saturday in San Francisco and will feature former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson.
“Five years ago, if you had told me we would have 35,000 pro-lifers walking in San Francisco, I would have said you were crazy,” said Eva Muntean, co-founder of the West Coast event. “Now I look out at the thousands of young people who eagerly listen to our message every year, and I see real and concrete hope for the future of our country.”
  • Life advocates across the country can tune in online to the Life and Justice conference in Colorado Springs on Saturday. The event will raise a greater awareness of the sanctity of human life and biblical justice as they relate to the preborn child, orphan care, those living with a special need, the elderly, human trafficking and genocide.
Focus on the Family is co-sponsoring the all-day event.  “We’re going to go back to the beginning, with the biblical roots and our admonition from the Scripture to speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves,” said Kelly Rosati, vice president of Community Outreach at Focus on the Family.

King's Niece: MLK, A Social Conservative


CBN News: The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. says her uncle would be considered a social conservative today.

Dr. Alveda King is the director of African American Outreach for Priests for Life, the country's largest Catholic pro-life organization. She says the advice columns he wrote for Ebony Magazine in 1957 and 1958 show that he was pro-life and in favor of abstinence before marriage.

"Uncle Martin sounded no different than a conservative Christian preacher does now," she said in a statement on Friday. "He was pro-life, pro-abstinence before marriage, and based his views on the unchanging Word of the Bible. Today, Planned Parenthood would condemn Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as part of the 'religious right.'"

In advice columns written for the African American-oriented magazine, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. told a young man who had impregnated his girlfriend and refused to marry her, resulting in a "crime," that he had made a "mistake." He urged another reader to abstain from premarital sex, noting that such activity was contributing "to the present breakdown of the family."

"Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was a man of peace, justice, and most of all a man of God," added Dr. King. "Were he alive today, he would be working to secure peace and justice for those in the womb and healing for a nation that is still pained by over 50 million missing lives."

Monday marked the 25th anniversary of Martin Luther King Day, a federal holiday in the U.S.
