Obama's Extremisim

Here's why, if I were american, I would not be voting Obama.

Besides voting against a ban on partial-birth abortions and using fetuses for embryo research and all the like, he also does not support the pregnant woman bill which would give women faced with an unexpected pregnancy support thus helping women if they wish to choose another option besides abortion.

He has co-sponsored a bill-strongly opposed by McCain-that would authorize the large-scale industrial production of human embryos for use in biomedical research in which they would be killed. In fact, the bill Obama co-sponsored would effectively require the killing of human beings in the embryonic stage that were produced by cloning. It would make it a federal crime for a woman to save an embryo by agreeing to have the tiny developing human being implanted in her womb so that he or she could be brought to term.

(...) when a bill was introduced in the United States Senate to put a modest amount of federal money into research to develop these methods, Barack Obama was one of thefew senators who opposed it. From any rational vantage point, this is unconscionable. Why would someone not wish to find a method of producing the pluripotent cells scientists want that all Americans could enthusiastically endorse? Why create and kill human embryos when there are alternatives that do not require the taking of nascent human lives? It is as if Obama is opposed to stem-cell research unless it involves killing human embryos.
