Rick Warren Slams Obama's Abortion Stance

Sunday, 29 Nov 2009 06:16 PM

President Barack Obama’s stance on abortion amounts to ignoring an American holocaust, says Pastor Rick Warren, author of the best-selling "A Purpose Drive Life/"

Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Warren slammed Obama’s stance that abortions should be rare, suggesting that position essentially supports the idea that life begins at conception.

"We've had 46 million Americans who aren't here. Those who could be here since Roe v. Wade, who are not voting. I think that innocence is a holocaust. I really do," Warren said. "Now, I think that we have to get beyond the name calling and find common ground to work on these issues. Now, I don't understand the idea of it should be rare and less. Well, either you believe it's life or you don't.... why would you believe it should be rare?.. If a baby, a fetus is not a life, then why restrict it?"

Warren also said that he prayed for the president daily, and that Obama should tackle the economy before he pushes a healthcare overhaul. Abortion has been a central issue of the healthcare debate for pro-life conservatives, both Republicans and Democrats.

"This president came with a number of cards stacked against him. That's for sure. He entered the presidency with more on the plate than many of the previous presidents entered with," Warren said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "I personally believe that the number one thing we need to do is get America back to work.....before healthcare or anything else, we need to get people back to work."
