Beware of eugenics

The Spokesman-Review

We just witnessed the election of the first African-American president. Are we now on the road to freedom for all?

Obama has vowed to sign the Freedom of Choice Act. This will erase all restrictions on abortion like: parental notification, partial-birth abortion, and medical care to infants born alive after a botched abortion. If killing a child still living in its mother’s womb is a “right to privacy,” then why isn’t killing a person outside the womb legal? If the disabled and elderly are a burden on the taxpayers, then why can’t we have a “right” to kill them?

My money is “private.” Our president says he does not know when life begins. Shouldn’t a prudent person err on the side of caution if a life could be at stake? What about 4,000 lives a day?

Black babies are aborted at a much higher rate than white babies. The founder of Planned Parenthood had a mission to get rid of blacks, poor and disabled and those neighborhoods are precisely where most abortion mills are located.

Obama and taxpayers will be promoting and funding genocide and eugenics. Yes, his inauguration was historic and very ironic.
