God help us

One of the issues in the current presidential campaign is whether or not Barack Obama has voted in favor of infanticide. He and his campaign, of course, deny that he has ever done such a thing. But his opposition to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act is a matter of public record, and no matter how much he attempts to justify his position, it still comes down to the same things: dead babies.

Have a look at this brief article by Mona Charen. Here are the last two paragraphs:

At the time, Barack Obama was an Illinois state senator. An almost exact copy of the federal bill was introduced in 2001. Obama opposed it, saying, “I mean it, it would essentially bar abortions because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute.” Even though the baby would be completely separated from the mother. In 2003, the Illinois legislature added a neutrality clause to the bill, making it a virtual clone of the federal legislation. As chairman of the committee considering the bill, Obama again opposed it, saying, “… an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman …”

Barack Obama is a charming and intelligent man. But there is no other way to interpret his position on BAIPA than this: A woman who chooses an abortion is entitled to a dead child no matter what. That is an abortion extremist.

This isn't a political issue. No, this is direct cooperation with evil.
