The Obama supporter then launched into her “canned response” and started reading from her call script: “Well, I am a practicing Catholic, and I strongly support President Obama.” The mother then asked her if she was “familiar with the Pope’s five “non-negotiables.”‘ The Obama supporter had no idea what she was talking about and explained that it was only the Pope’s “opinion” to ban the use of contraception.
The Obama caller then went back to her script, asking these clever questions:
1. How can you support a “Mormon” who does not believe in Jesus Christ?
. . .
The Catholic mother then concluded with, “How can you as a Catholic support a president who supports partial birth abortion and did not support the Born Alive Protection Act when he was a state senator in Illinois?”
Now, get this! The Obama supporter, again reading from her call script, countered, “President Obama did not support abortion.”
As the chair of a pro-life committee, this Catholic woman was more than up to the task of correcting the caller. She asked her “to do some homework.” For example, did she notice that as recently as the Democratic Convention “pro-abortion speakers and supporters of Planned Parenthood were the featured speakers?”
Then came the biggest whopper of all. The Obama supporter said, “Planned Parenthood helps children get health care and prenatal care and does not promote abortion.”
