A package of Born Alive bills was introduced three times during Obama’s tenure.

The cornerstone bill was the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which defined legal personhood. This definition was identical to the federal BAIPA (1) which was drafted from the definition of “live birth” created by the World Health Organization in 1950 (2) and adopted by the United Nations in 1955 (3)....

Here I will only post links to Obama’s actions and votes on the cornerstone bill, the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. The bill number changed every year it was reintroduced.


Senate Bill 1095 (4), Born Alive Infant Protection Act

Go here to view Obama’s “no” vote (5) in the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 28, 2001.

Transcript of Obama’s verbal opposition to Born Alive on the IL Senate floor (6), March 30, 2001, pages 84-90

Obama’s “present” vote on the IL Senate floor (7), March 30, 2001


Senate Bill 1662 ( 8 ), Born Alive Infant Protection Act

Go here to view Obama’s “no” vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee (9) on March 6, 2002. (ABC inadvertently coped bill #1663, a companion bill. The vote for the Born Alive bill, #1662, was identical.)

Transcript of Obama’s verbal opposition to Born Alive on the IL Senate floor (10), April 4, 2002, pages 28-35

Obama’s “no” vote on the IL Senate floor (11), April 4, 2002


Senate Bill 1082 (12), Born Alive Infant Protection Act

Democrats took control of the IL Senate with the 2002 elections. They sent Born Alive to the infamously liberal Health & Human Services Committee, chaired by Barack Obama (13).

As can be seen on the Actions docket (14), Obama held Born Alive on March 6, 2003, from even being voted on in committee. It is also important to note from the docket that on March 13, 2003, Obama stopped the senate sponsor from adding the lately discussed clarification paragraph (15) from the federal BAIPA, to make the bills absolutely identical.

When asked the question last night about what the candidates saw as the biggest failing of the country, Obama went into an answer designed to align with the Evangelical vote -

He brought up that we should be following the admonition of what is said in the Bible about: "as ye do unto the least of these, my children.”


This cries out for an ad with side by side clips of him saying this and then his total commitment to abortion on all levels...and his record of almost 100 votes supporting abortion against McCain's ZERO votes.

Then of course there was the remark about Clarence Thomas, with an impressive resume, by the way, as being not experienced enough for such a high position.

Ah, look in the mirror time, BO?

The great moral failing of the country: “WHATEVER YOU DO FOR THE LEAST OF MY BROTHERS, YOU DO FOR ME.”

I wonder if Senator Obama gave any thought when quoting this passage to the unborn who have lost their lives to abortion? Or to those who survived abortion but were left to die under the kind of infanticide he believes is legal?

I wish Rev. Warren had followed up on this one.

I am glad this article has all of the original documents and Obama’s angry explanation on video within it.

Here’s what I am getting:

Obama liked and voted for the additional amendment to the state bill that added that nothing in this bill affects a child who is not yet born. But even with that amendment passed, bipartisanly, Obama voted with all of his fellow Democrats AGAINST the bill itself, which would have forced all medical professionals to perform life saving care to anyone born.

Now he is calling people who say he has an “infanticide problem” LIARS. But the only reason he gives that makes any sense is that there apparently was already a law in Illinois mandating care for newborns. Yet since nurses were witnessing live children being tossed aside as garbage because they were not wanted, obviously the first law (which, for all I know, is something extremely general and not written specifically to include abortion survivors) was not adequate.

And he then pulls all the doctors in Illinois around him as shields. Not an effective argument.

I think he does have an infanticide problem. It’s probably because he realizes his voters and wife are VERY committed to protecting abortion at all costs.
