Jill Stanek — CNN: Obama’s opposition to Born Alive Act
Via Jill Stanek:
CNN fairly reported then-state Sen. Barack Obama’s opposition to the IL Born Alive Infants Protection Act, a bill to protect abortion survivors from being shelved to die in hospital soiled utility rooms.
Obama not only voted against Born Alive, he was the sole senator to speak against it on the senate floor – 2 years in a row.
The federal version of Born Alive passed unanimously 98-0 in the US Senate with Sens. Kennedy and Boxer speaking in support on the senate floor. It passed overwhelmingly by voice vote in the US House. President Bush signed it into law on August 5, 2002.
As chairman of the IL Senate Health & Human Services Committee, Obama singlehandedly stopped the identical wording of the federal bill from being introduced in IL in 2003.
Barack Obama is so radical in his support of abortion, he supports infanticide.
Go read Jill Stanek’s post for her commentary on this. In it she states: ” Costello’s follow-up should be to answer the question she closed with: ‘Did Barack Obama reject the opportunity to vote for a bill identical to the federal bill?'”
My Two Cents: Barack Obama has no business running for the office of President — he is indeed a baby killer and places no value on human life. Would you entrust him with your life and the life of your family?
