Bishop Tobin rips Obama on abortion advocacy
Catholic World News - January 20, 2011
Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, Rhode Island, has said that President Barack Obama cannot credibly speak about compassion as long as he aggressively supports unrestricted abortion.
In a stinging criticism, appearing as his column in the diocesan newspaper, Bishop Tobin characterizes Obama as “the most pro-abortion president we’ve ever had.” Reflecting on the speech given by the President in Arizona, in the wake of a mass shooting, the bishop says:
And in one of the most dramatic moments of his speech, Mr. Obama announced that the wounded congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, opened her eyes for the first time just after he’d completed his visit to her. “A miracle” some proclaimed, and certainly a welcome sign of recovery at which we all rejoice.
But I can’t help but wonder how many tiny eyes will never open, will never see the light of day, because of this president’s shortsighted and zealous promotion of abortion.
