Did he lie to us, or is he lying to himself?

This really caught my attention.

It’s from a great post by Justin Taylor over at his blog (emphasis mine):

It was interesting that at the Saddleback Presidential Forum, Rick Warren asked a very good and specific question: “At what point does a baby get human rights, in your view?” He did not ask a theological question (e.g., when does the baby begin to have a soul?) or a scientific question (when does human life begin?), but a purely legal question (when do babies begin to have rights?).

Obama either misunderstood or misrepresented:

“Well, you know, I think that whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity, you know, is above my pay grade.”

The question, though, was not above his pay grade, for Obama has answered it decisively and clearly by his unmitigated support for Roe v. Wade: a baby gets human rights when the mother wants it to have human rights. The will of the stronger is the rule of law.
