President Obama’s Sandy Hook speech on Dec. 16 helped solidify the stance of guns-rights advocates. Now it’s been transformed into an emotional pro-life rallying cry by Blackstone Films, which seeks to draw attention to the annual March for Life in the nation’s captial. Obama’s heartfelt thoughts on the Newtown, Conn., shooting seamlessly double as a philosophical primer for pro-life advocates.

“They had their entire lives ahead of them. Birthdays. Graduations. Weddings. Kids of their own. This is our first task: caring for our children. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how as a society we will be judged. And by that measure, can we honestly say we’re doing enough to keep our children — all of them — safe from harm? I’ve been reflecting on this the last few days, and if we’re honest with ourselves the answer is no. These tragedies must end.”


As a senator, Obama questioned Illinois’ Born Alive Act, highlighting a man comfortable referring to a baby who survived an abortion as a fetus. Years later, this president with such muddled views on the subject turns into a star witness for the pro-life movement.
