more essential reading on a very important issue!

...Obama has said again and again he voted against versions of that bill as an Illinois state senator because it did not include language to protect Roe v. Wade, as the federal version did which sailed through the U.S. Senate 98-0. The committee report, however, shows a 10-0 vote in favor of an amendment to add the same language to protect abortion rights that was added to the federal bill. That same committee report subsequently shows Obama voting the kill the bill in a "final action" vote.

As if voting for a version of the bill which did not include language to protect Roe v. Wade would have been totally acceptable and understandable.

Q. When is it okay for a child who has survived an attempted abortion to be refused medical treatment and to be put on a shelf in the laundry room to die of neglect?

A. If you don't answer "Never!" firmly and immediately, you're not fit to be a human being, let alone president.
