The way I understand it, the Infants Born Alive Bill was introduced to the IL Senate and Obama voted against it because he wanted it to have the same language as the Federal Born Alive Bill. When the bill was re-presented containing that clause, Obama voted against it again. So, given the chance, twice, to vote against infanticide, Obama voted for.
He also lied about all of this earlier in the campaign, before admitting that he was lying.
Obama has the most liberal voting record you can have on the issue of abortion. He does not, like Joe Biden, draw the line at the savagery of partial-birth abortion – he sides with the scissor, the vacuum and the death. He does not draw the line (as Nancy Pelosi and even Hillary Clinton do) at infanticide. His votes say, “that baby was supposed to be dead; let it die.”
Sen. Barack Obama doesn’t seem comfortable, at all, straying from the side of death.
None of us is God, none of us has perfect wisdom…but for that reason alone, if you’re not “morally” sure about something, if you really think that theologically, scientifically and intellectually it’s all “above your pay grade,” then shouldn’t you err on the side of life? Not on the side of death?
It occurs to me that in this election – moreso than any election in recent memory, we have the “clear choice” that Moses also gave to the people:
Ed Morrissey has a great round-up of Obama stories on this issue, and video of this abortion survivor, Gianna Jessen, on Hannity & Colmes last night.
