The Pro-Life Commercial You Won't See at the Superbowl

The toddler Barack Obama and his mother

A Catholic organization called CatholicVote.com made a pro-life commercial for the Superbowl, but NBC refused to show it. The commerical is called "Life: Imagine the Potential." CatholicVote is a project of the Fidelis Center for Law & Policy.

Even though I am suspicious of his associations with the propagandist Rev. Wright and the terrorist Bill Ayers, I think that the miracle of the President's life is a powerful testament for the pro-life movement.

I was saddened to hear the President say that if his young daughters ever made a "mistake," that he wouldn't want them "punished" with a baby. Will the President's daughters feel like they have a "choice" if their dad has this kind of attitude? They should be able to depend on their mom and dad like President Obama's mother depended on her parents. Does the President believe that he was a "mistake"? Does this picture suggest that his mother considered him a "punishment"?

Even without changing the law, the President could save millions of lives if he reminded women and their families of the miracle of his own life. That would be a lot better legacy for our nation than his autobiography Dreams from My Father, which Jack Cashill believes was ghostwritten by the terrorist Bill Ayers.

In the Bible it says that the unmarried teenager Mary gave birth to a child whose message would literally "save the world." It's lucky for President Obama that his vulnerable mother wasn't able to read Ward Churchill's advice for saving the planet:

Tell ’em [American moms] you’ll put the butt out when they snuff the kid and not a moment before. Better yet, tell ’em they should snuff themselves, as well as the kid, and do the planet a real favor. Just 'kidding' (heh-heh).---Ward Churchill [Now deleted; see also the slightly different version of this essay that survives in Acts of Rebellion: The Ward Churchill Reader, page 296.]
