DALLAS - U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama side-stepped a pointed query about abortion on Saturday by “mega-pastor” Rick Warren during a televised forum.
Asked at what point a baby gets “human rights,” Obama, who strongly supports abortion rights, said: “… whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity … is above my pay grade.”
He went on to reiterate his view that it was important to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain, who followed Obama onto the stage of the nationally televised event, was more blunt and more emphatic.
He said a baby’s human rights began “at the moment of conception … I have a 25-year pro-life record.”
Above his "pay grade?" What does that mean? If you saw footage of Obama not answering the question, you can see him stuttering and tripping over words before he again embarrasses himself in front of a national audience.
When asked how he defines marriage, the Obamafraud said that marriage is between a man and a woman. The gay lobby should not worry, however. Obamafraud will "refine" his answer at the earliest opportunity.
