In his book, "The Audacity of Hope," Mr. Obama offers this explanation for his opposition: "It mandated lifesaving measures for premature babies (the bill didn't mention that such measures were already the law) - but also extended personhood to pre-viable fetuses, thereby effectively overturning Roe v. Wade."

I'm not a lawyer. But this sounds like complete BS to me. How can a state legislature overturn a Supreme Court ruling?

I would love to think my state legislature could overturn the Supremes when they issue an idiotic ruling, but I don't think they can. I think Bambi is trying to BS us.

I predict Alan Colmes will fall for this, too.

Agreed, I believe BO’s career is based on BS.

From what I read, even the statement was BS -

it did NOT grant “personhood” to pre-viable “fetuses”.

Of course, I think our society SHOULD “grant” personhood to all babies, born and unborn. This is stupid anyway, only God is justified in “granting” personhood or in taking innocent life.
