Impeachment isn’t something to take lightly and isn’t a term thrown around casually by many elected officials or political pundits simply because a president takes an opposite position on a give political issue. While a good number of pro-life Americans probably want to see President Barack Obama impeached because of his lengthy pro-abortion record, impeachment as an actuality in the way President Bill Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives hasn’t been a serious subject.

Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, in an executive article written for Breitbart News, is calling for Obama’s impeachment.Although Palin is pro-life and diametrically opposed to Obama’s position on abortion, her reason is because of the flood of child immigrants illegally crossing the border.

“The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored,” Palin said in the op-ed in Breitbart News. “If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.”

“It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment,” she said.

Obama could cause more “irreparable harm” during his final years in office, she warned.

“President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It’s not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution’s role in protecting our rights,” she says.

Actual impeachment isn’t probably a serious possibility. After all, Democrats control the Senate and even if the House were to somehow pass articles of impeachment, they would never be taken up in the upper chamber. And whether Obama would be impeached when the next presidential election is right around the corner is another question — since Americans will have the power of the ballot to voice their opposition.
But Palin’s broadside could do something important — it could fire up the pro-life, conservative base at a time when Americans really aren’t terribly engaged in the mid-term elections. The pro-life community has an important opportunity to re-take the Senate from Harry Reid and his pro-abortion allies and pave the way for winning the White House in 2016. Both are crucial to reforming the Supreme Court and realizing legal protection for unborn children.
