An African Responds to Obama and Abortion

The following letter was written by a Ugandan pastor not long after the election of President Obama. The substance of the letter is a response to Obama's signing of a law that allows funding for the killing of innocent unborn children in foreign countries. Though months old, the letter continues to represent an essential position in our public discourse regarding abortion. This letter should be read throughout the world.

The impression in our world is still growing with the election of Obama as the first black president of the USA. Almost all people have gigantic hopes that the relations of USA and other nations will begin to change to the better; but the relation of America and the unborn children has again become very bitter.

The man we have hopes in has in less than 2 weeks in office signed a law allowing funding for killing of innocent unborn children in foreign countries! This is the man and his team who claim that they will bring peace to the Middle East and stop the killing of those who have been born, some of which are innocent while others may not be innocent. He is planning for better times in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, and other parts of the world. He is looking forward to God to help him sort out these problems. When closing his inaugural speech he said: “May God bless you, God bless America” can God really bless the same hand that kills unborn babies and also tries to bring peace to these affected areas of the world? Can bitter water and sweet water come from the same spring?

For the last 50 years or more America has killed over 50 million unborn children and influenced other countries to do so in a number that is not specified.

The American hand is more brutal than the hand of Pharaoh of Egypt when Moses the servant of the Lord was born; worse than the hand of Herod when Jesus was born; worse than the hand of Nero when the church of Jesus was being born, worse than the hand of Adolph Hitler when the nation of Israel was being born. Hitler killed 6 million Jews but America has killed about 100 million children in a few decades.
They are worse than the hand of Idi Amin of Uganda against Christians; or Intarahamwe who championed genocide in Rwanda, and further worse than LRA who has killed a few hundreds of thousands in the north of Uganda.

On the judgment day when God calls out all murderers to account for their deeds, all these groups with all their schemes will stand up to give account of what they did to KILL these innocent people.

President Obama must stop heaping sins on top of the big hills of sins already created by his predecessors, but must immediately reverse what he did. This is repentance! America’s sins can no longer hide from any person including unborn children. They are tall enough for someone in the valley to see. The twin towers destroyed during 9/11 where physical images of America’s political and idolatrous sins. But God judged them in such a bitter way during the Bush’s administration. THEREFORE WE SHOULD NOT RE-BUILD THEM AGAIN.

What threat does the White House foresee from the unborn baby as it does the nuclear program of Iran or the economic program of China? If it is true that the unborn child is an enemy of America as some nations are; and Mr. Obama emphasized that he would take a diplomatic approach to win his enemies over to healthy relations with America, is killing the unborn “enemy” a diplomatic approach?

Remember that the credit crunch is the hand of the Lord shaking us and attacking our pride. Therefore the wrath of the Lord cannot rest from humiliating us if we refuse to humble ourselves on issues that are clear ethically, morally and theologically.
Just stop and think if one or both of the two little girls of Obama had been killed before they were born, how different would be the world (home) of Obama, especially now in the White House. The two little girls speak a powerful message to the largest percentage of people around the world than what Obama and Michele say; we have to discover this.

May God open our eyes to see these things very clearly and turn away from these sins!

Rev. Martin Odi
