Why Is ObamaNation.com Necessary?
Christians for Social Justice seeks to change public opinion on the most fundamental social justice issue of our day – abortion.
We applaud the election of an African American to the Presidency. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said that we should judge someone “not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." We believe it is long past time for America to elect an African American President.
Having said that, it is not Obama’s race or ethnicity with which we have serious concerns.
Take a look at a brief review of his record on key issues other than abortion:
- In 1999, Obama voted against a bill barring early release for (criminal) sex offenders.
- Obama voted against filtering pornography on school and library computers.
- Obama voted for sex education for kindergarten children through the 5th grade.
- In 2001, Obama voted “present” on a bill to keep pornographic book and video stores and strip clubs from setting up within 1,000 feet of schools and churches.
- He unsuccessfully sponsored limit of one handgun purchase per month. (2000)
- Voted against making gang members eligible for the death penalty if they kill someone to help their gang. (2001)

Despite his abysmal record on these other issues we need to ask the question: Is there any other issue as foundational as the right to life?”
CFSJ grants that there are other legitimate issues that need to be addressed. As Americans, we share in our concern for these other issues, but not at the expense of the most fundamental value of all - life.
CFSJ is concerned about what an Obama presidency will mean to the United States, especially our weakest members - pre born children.
Obama voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act which would have protected babies like the ones above who survive an abortion. To learn more about Obama's vote click here.
Americans need to understand the importance of protecting the right to life as a logical precursor to the extension of all other rights and privileges. The fundamental right to life must be any civilized nation's top priority. If we fail to secure the right to life for the people of the United States none of the other rights matter.
As an African America, President Obama is very familiar with the struggle for human rights. Of all the Presidents he should be the one most passionately defending the pre-born not aiding in their destruction. Abortion in the African American community is at an epidemic rate accounting for over 36% of all abortions committed. In spite of this, Obama has always been an outspoken abortion supporter.
Pr. 28:17 says, “A man who is laden with the guilt of human blood will be a fugitive until death; let no one support him.”
Obama's support for abortion is a major liability in his capacity as President of the United States.
We believe that any President who supports the slaughter of pre-born babies is not faithfully discharging the responsibilities of the office. A President cannot be "right" enough on other issues to make up for being "wrong" on the unalienable right to life.
As our Declaration of Independence states:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed...
President Barack Hussein Obama is tragically viciously pro-abortion. He denies the most basic human right given to us by our Creator. In fact, he even goes beyond the pro-abortion position of some fellow Democrats by supporting the brutal act of partial birth abortion.
Partial Birth Abortion
Generations yet born will judge America on the basis of how we treat the most vulnerable. Will America hold to her founding commitment to “secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity?” or will we support a man who denies the right to life to the powerless and defenseless?
For the sake of our nation and our posterity – the pro-abortion policies of President Barack Hussein Obama must not be supported.
President Obama supports abortion on demand and the barbaric practice of Partial Birth Abortion.
