“Republican Alan Keyes ripped into Barack Obama’s views on abortion Monday, calling it ‘the slaveholder’s position,”…
Keyes said legalizing abortion deprives the unborn of their equal rights.
‘I would still be picking cotton if the country’s moral principles had not been shaped by the Declaration of Independence,’ Keyes said. He said Obama ‘has broken and rejected those principles–he has taken the slaveholder’s position.’
Asked specifically about the phrase ‘slaveholder’s position,’ Obama said Keyes ‘should look to the members of his own party to see if that’s appropriate if he’s going to use that kind of language.’
Well, Mr. Keyes, care to discuss the Declaration of Independence, equal rights and marriage between same sex partners?
