Pro-Life Leaders Shocked at Vatican Spokesman “Appreciating” Obama Peace Prize: Vatican Spokesman Fr. Lombardi Says Vatican Appreciates Nobel Prize to Obama

Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi has reacted to the Nobel Peace prize being awarded to President Barack Obama saying that the news “was greeted with appreciation at the Vatican in light of the president’s demonstrated commitment to promoting peace on an international level and, in particular, in recently promoting nuclear disarmament.” Given President Obama’s vigorous support for abortion, pro-life leaders reacted with shock and dismay to the reaction by the Vatican spokesman. One pro-life leader, who wished to remain anonymous, told, “If Obama was good on international peace and nuclear disarmament but favored the killing of Jews, its not likely he would get either the Noble Peace Prize or be praised by the Vatican.”
