The Audacity of Death
The Wall Street Journal ^ | 6/5/08 | DANIEL ALLOTT

Posted on 06/05/2008 11:37:05 AM PDT by Dawnsblood

According to Barack Obama, Gianna Jessen shouldn't exist.

Miss Jessen is an exquisite example of what antiabortion advocates call a "survivor." Well into her third trimester of pregnancy, Gianna's biological mother was injected with a saline solution intended to induce a chemical abortion at a Los Angeles County abortion center. Eighteen hours later, and precious minutes before the abortionist's arrival, Gianna emerged. Premature and with severe injuries that resulted in cerebral palsy. But alive.

Had the abortionist been present at her birth, Gianna would have been killed, perhaps by suffocation. As it was, a startled nurse called an ambulance, and Gianna was rushed to a nearby hospital, where, weighing just two pounds, she was placed in an incubator, then, months later, in foster care.

Gianna survived then, and thrives now, because, as she told me recently with a laugh, "I guess I don't die easy." Which is what the abortionist might have thought as he signed his victim's birth certificate. Gianna's medical records state that she was "born during saline abortion."

As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama twice opposed legislation to define as "persons" babies who survive late-term abortions. Babies like Gianna. Mr. Obama said in a speech on the Illinois Senate floor that he could not accept that babies wholly emerged from their mother's wombs are "persons," and thus deserving of equal protection under the Constitution's 14th Amendment.

A federal version on the same legislation passed the Senate unanimously and with the support of all but 15 members of the House. Gianna was present when President Bush signed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act in 2002.

Was just going to post this! Thank you!!

This evil mind needs to be exposed. To leave a baby unattended to die in the event of a failed abortion is the mind of a very dark soul indeed.

Please pass this on.

Wow.

When it comes to the subject of Abortion, some people just don’t “get it”. Otherwise-intelligent people.

This kind of info must get out more and more. I posted this article on FR that was published earlier this year on Townhall.com. I have made a commitment to God that I would never vote for pro-abortion candidate. I know lots of folk on here don't agree with this, and of course I have heard the arguments about being a one issue voter many time, but for me, a consistent ethic of life is the underpinning of all moral reasoning. I am trying to figure out McCain on this issue and if I can vote for him.

This story is amazing and miraculous...

For an intelligent, extremely well educated man, Obama is also extremely ignorant...

Thank you for posting this. Imagine a mother deciding after a baby is born she wanted a boy instead of a girl. What's to stop her from saying, "I had really intended to abort".

Barack is so dangerous on so many levels.

When I asked Gianna to reflect on Mr. Obama's candidacy, she paused, then said, "I really hope the American people will have their eyes wide open and choose to be discerning. . . . He is extreme, extreme, extreme."

Well said, Gianna, well said- and here's to your courage and pluck.

Obama’s disgusting position on this issue should set off alarms in the minds of voters.

The young woman sat in the doctor’s office waiting room and cuddled the 6 month-old boy in her lap. Soon she was escorted to an exam room.

The doctor finally came in, smiled, sat down, glanced at her file and asked “Mrs. Jones, what brings you here today?”

She hesitated — then the words tumbled out in a torrent.

“Doctor, my husband doesn’t make much money, we have 3 children now and I’m pregnant again. Doctor we just can’t afford another mouth to feed – we’re barely making it now. She paused again. “Doctor, I want an abortion.”

The doctor sat back in his chair, laid the file aside and said, “An abortion costs around 500 dollars and you probably don’t have the money. I have a better, less expensive option. “ Reaching into a drawer, the doctor extracted a scalpel and continued.

“Lay the lad here across your lap and pull his shirt up so his chest is exposed.”

Shocked, she blurted, “What are you going to do?”

“Why, we’ll simply kill THIS baby.”

Clutching her son to her breast, she leapt to her feet and shouted “You MONSTER!”

The doctor paused, then spoke.

“Mrs. Jones, the only difference between your proposal and mine is that one baby is IN your lap and the other is ON you lap and, therefore, much easier to get at.”

She ran from the room, his words ringing in her ears.

Is abortion the killing of a human being?

Not according to NARAL and the other radical feminist gangs who require that abortion continue to be available to them as a last resort birth control method to allow them to persist in their sexually promiscuous lifestyle.

And not according to the Democrat presidential candidate.

I’ll believe it’s NOT a human being when a woman gives birth to a chicken, hog or a tree.

Barack obama has stated that he’s in favor of abortion — indeed, late term abortion, and baby aborted alive infanticide — because he doesn’t want his daughters “punished” by an unwanted pregnancy.

The hypocrisy here is that had abortion been legal in the US at the time Barack Sr. of Kenya impregnated Miss Stanley Ann Dunham in Hawaii (when Barack Sr. was already married to another woman), Barack Jr. might well have been aborted and would not be here to devil us with his extreme proposals.

Do you suppose that he has thought about this and has ever considered himself as “punishment” to his mother or grandparents?

I always loved this bumpersticker:

If it’s NOT really a baby then you’re NOT really pregnant.

What an appalling story. I have always said - some day history will view abortion just as we now view past practices such as slavery or witch burning. People will ask - what kind of human beings have permitted, not to mention encouraged, such a thing.

I wouldn't be surprised if he did. He was probably told by his mother that she should have been able to abort him. I know a girl who says "I should have been aborted" just because she grew up poor. Pro-abort people are messed up that way. Self-loathing and misanthropic.

You should never have to apologize for respecting and defending life.

Respecting and defending life is in all our founding documents.

If you don’t have life you won’t need any other right.

Blacks were once considered not fully human. They were property.

Now its the newest among us or our most disabled or elderly.

LIFE ISSUES ARE OUR FIRST ONLY CHOICE FOR VOTING!

Otherwise-intelligent people.

Proving once again the absolute lack of correlation between "intelligence" and character.

I'm told there are some solid black preachers who say things like, "vote character, not color," and that abortion, which Obama is overwhelmingly in favor of, is a "black genocide" (everything's a black something, isn't it?) but in any event you don't hear these guys on the news, now do you?

So why is that? Why does the media choose to promote the racist remarks from Obama's church and not the extremely divisive remarks of an anti-abortion black preacher?

oh...because that's against obama, that's why. And the media will not go against obama.

Because the media is whore that's been bought and paid for.

Barak Obama’s support for post-abortion fetus killing is nothing less than ghoulish.

The WSJ’s lead editorial “Who are the extremists?” way back on April 25, 1996 was a very powerful piece concerning Gianna Jesson and pba.

I had it saved at one time but cannot find it anywhere.

If anyone could post the text or a link to the editorial it would be greatly appreciated.

It was an extremely persuasive editorial and moved me out of the “mushy middle” camp for sure.

Anybody?

Thanks, Dave
