The entire issue is over abortion.
As most of you are already aware, Barack Obama has been a steadfast and extreme supporter of abortion rights. Certainly, this is perfectly acceptable if this is what he chooses to do.
The problem comes in when Obama is confronted with one of his highly extreme views, realizes that it makes him look like a heartless jerk, and then tries to misrepresent his extreme view.
The entire issue is over babies that are born alive after being aborted.
New York Sun
At issue is the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, a bill in the Illinois state Senate that sought to protect against bungled abortions by requiring that a fetus that survived an abortion be defined as a person. Fearing that the legislation could be interpreted more broadly to protect fetuses that were not yet viable — thus threatening Roe v. Wade, abortion rights advocates pushed for an amendment that explicitly limited the scope of the bill to infants "born alive."
"Nothing in this section," the added sentence reads, "shall be construed to affirm, deny, expand, or contract any legal status or legal right applicable to any member of the species homo sapiens at any point prior to being born alive as defined in this section." A federal version with that added clause passed Congress unanimously in 2002, with the support of Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Kennedy, among others. Mr. Obama said in 2004 and again on Saturday that he would have supported the federal version.
For the last 6 years, Barack Obama has steadfastly claimed that if a "neutrality clause" like the federal bill had been added, he would have readily supported it on the state level.It was proven again this week, the "neutrality clause" was written in at the state level bill, and Barack Obama voted against it anyway. He was the head of the committee addressing the issue and he killed the bill anyway.
When confronted with this issue last week, Obama proceeded to call all those questioning him on this issue, liars.
Turns out, Barack Obama is the liar and has been lying for 6 years.
After stating on repeated occasions he would have voted for the bill with the neutrality clause, the campaign is now admitting that indeed the neutrality clause was included in the state version that Obama voted against.
After 6 years of lying, the Obama campaign now has to come up with a new excuse as to why he voted against the bill.
The latest version as to why Obama would gladly let living breathing infants die with no protective right is this:
His campaign yesterday acknowledged that he had voted against an identical bill in the state Senate, and a spokesman, Hari Sevugan, said the senator and other lawmakers had concerns that even as worded, the legislation could have undermined existing Illinois abortion law. Those concerns did not exist for the federal bill, because there is no federal abortion law.Over and over and over again Barack Obama has come up with an excuse for allowing aborted babies that were born alive to be carted off to the broom closets and allowed to suffer and die alone.
What a horrifying pathetic heartless man Barack Obama has proven to be when it comes to protecting the most helpless unwanted among us.
Where is the rest of the media on this?
Notice, Obama got a ton of play time with the media when he was calling the Right to Life people liars, now that it has been proven he is the liar, few in the media will touch it. How pathetic.
