Obama's Conversion, etc

The following is from Obama's speech at the National Prayer Breakfast this past week. You can read the whole thing here.
I didn’t become a Christian until many years later, when I moved to the South Side of Chicago after college. It happened not because of indoctrination or a sudden revelation, but because I spent month after month working with church folks who simply wanted to help neighbors who were down on their luck – no matter what they looked like, or where they came from, or who they prayed to. It was on those streets, in those neighborhoods, that I first heard God’s spirit beckon me. It was there that I felt called to a higher purpose – His purpose.
He included another one-liner to make sure everybody knows at least one thing about God, whoever he is.
There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being.  This much we know.

How can he confirm that God does not condone taking human life, when he is so adamantly pro-abortion? Crazy!!
