Obama hopes to prune pro-life amendment from health-care bill, aide says

Catholic World News - November 16, 2009

David Axelrod, a senior political adviser to President Barack Obama, has said that the White House will try to persuade the Senate to remove the pro-life "Stupak amendment" from the health-care reform legislation passed by the House of Representatives. Obama himself will intervene if necessary to secure that change, Axelrod said-- despite the president's promise that his health-care reform effort would not include abortion subsidies.

    While I'm convinced this President is without a heart, we all know he was given a soul. We need to continue to pray for his conversion. I offer him to our Mother, Mary, to correct him as a mother sees fit. Mary, pray for us.

    We need to storm heaven, and work like crazy for a change in the culture of death to a culture of life. Pray, pray, pray.

    Calling Doug Kmiec, calling Doug Kmiec! I thought Obama was a pro-life president. To paraphrase St Thomas More in "A Man for All Seasons": Why Douglas, it profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world... but for Malta?
