Can you be pro-life and Christian or Catholic and vote for Obama?

Can you be pro-life and vote for Obama?
According to the Matthew 25 Network, you can be pro-life and support a political candidate who:
Voted against and blocked legislation that would have protected infants who were born alive following an unsuccessful abortion. Then misrepresented his record.
Promises as his number one prior to pass the Freedom of Choice Act, a radical legislative attempt to enshrine abortion-on-demand into American law, to sweep aside existing laws that the majority of Americans support and to prevent states from enacting protective measures in the future (more here).
Vows to nominate Supreme Court justices that support Roe v Wade
Wants to force taxpayers (and insurance companies) to pay for abortions - supports legislation that would repeal the Hyde Amendment which protects pro-life citizens from having to pay for abortions that are not necessary to save the life of the mother and are not the result of rape or incest.
Advocates cutting off all federal aid to pregnancy resource centers, which provide assistance to women who are experiencing crisis pregnancies -- and save the lives of many children.
Has been rated a big zero by every pro-life organization in the country for his voting record
Brags about his 100% rating by national pro-abortion organizations
Has the most liberal views regarding abortion on demand in the history of presidential candidates.
Opposes parental-notification for minors seeking abortion.
Is against "conscience-clauses" for pro-life doctors who refuse to do abortions
Has never voted to restrict or limit abortion in any way.
Despite the fantasy promoted by the Matthew 25 Network, the question asked in this post is rhetorical because ...
Barack Obama is the most extreme pro-abortion candidate ever to seek the office of President of the United States. He is the most extreme pro-abortion member of the United States Senate. Indeed, he is the most extreme pro-abortion legislator ever to serve in either house of the United States Congress. - Robert George
Obama's rejection of the God-given intrinsic dignity of human life is itself a rejection of God and reveals a horribly distorted view of justice that provides a basis for any number evils.
Why is respecting the person so difficult for Barack Obama?
No, to vote for Barack Obama is not pro-life.
