Barack Obama when a state legislator opposed a measure to protect infants who survive abortion. He really did. (According to FactCheck, the bill applied only to fetuses that were unlikely to survive and that it wouldn’t be “infanticide” unless a person considered an aborted fetus an infant, which Obama doesn’t, but I do, but the facts are confirmed.) So abortion survivor Giana Jessen did an ad calling him on it. Now he is running a counter-ad calling the ad “vile” and a lie. But it isn’t a lie! See here for the various ads. Here is Giana’s response to his attack on her:
I know that Christians who support Obama say that the president really can’t do much about abortion, so it really doesn’t matter. But doesn’t a person’s beliefs about life issues tell you much about that person’s character and moral convictions? Not to mention that the president’s appointment of Supreme Court justices IS going to have an impact on abortions.
“Mr. Obama is clearly blinded by political ambition given his attack on me this week. All I asked of him was to do the right thing: support medical care and protection for babies who survive abortion – as I did 31 years ago. He voted against such protection and care four times even though the U.S. Senate voted 98-0 in favor of a bill identical to the one Obama opposed. In the words of his own false and misleading ad, his position is downright vile. Mr. Obama said at the recent Saddleback Forum that the question of when babies should get human rights was above his pay grade. Such vacillation and cowardice would have left me to die if his policies were in place when I was born. Thank God they were not.”
