By Joanne Tramel on October 27, 2008

I believe that life begins at conception, that a woman has no right to end that life just because it is in and depends on her body, that life is sacred, and that life is a gift of God. It is precisely because I believe these things that I will be voting on November 4 for Barack Obama.

My reasoning is as follows. Life is a seamless whole, beginning with conception, and ending on this earth with death. Morally, we cannot allow this life after it has been born to be tortured, to be bombed to smithereens, to live hungry, to have inadequate health care, to receive little or no education, to be the victim of crime and neglect. Yet under the current administration too much of this moral outrage has taken place. We are engaged in two wars both of which have cost hundreds of thousands of lives and have left both countries devastated and filled with suffering and bitterness, but after six years of this horror, Osama bin Ladin and Al Qaeda are still alive and flourishing, our economy is down the toilet, over fifty million Americans are without health care insurance, we have engaged in torture, our first amendment rights have been compromised, the unemployment rate has skyrocketed, and our nation's students score poorly in comparison to other students around the world with thirty percent of them not even finishing high school.
