I'm absolutely convinced that there is a moral and ethical element to the issue of when a baby gets rights ... but deciding when a baby gets rights is above my pay grade ... so the first piece of legislation I will sign as president will wipe out all restrictions on killing unborn babies!
If the MSM is forced to report this nObama is done, IMO. The DBM will be very careful and give McCain no opportunity to bring this up in the debates. Afterall, it’s not important/true/relevant until NYTimes, AP, CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN etc. say that it is important.
The only objection I have is that he wants to take the United States with him.
For that, he is my implacable enemy.
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.

Obama’s verbal oppostion to Born alive, (7) “And if were placing a burden on the doctor that says you have to keep alive even a previable child as long as possible and give them as much medical attention as as is necessary to keep that child alive, then were probably crossing the lines in terms of unconstitutionality.” March 30, 2001
Obama’s “present” vote on the IL Senate floor ( 8 ), March 30, 2001
Senate Bill 1662 ( 9 ), Born Alive Infant Protection Act
Go here to view Obama’s “no” vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee (10) 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 (11), April 4, 2002, pages 28-35
Obama’s “no” vote on the IL Senate floor (12), April 4, 2002
Senate Bill 1082 (13), 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 (14).
As can be seen on the Actions docket (15), 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 (16) from the federal BAIPA, to make the bills absolutely identical.
I guess the proper thing to do then is to...
'ERR ON THE SAFE SIDE', right????
"I hate to say that people are lying, but here's a situation where folks are lying."
Yes, this is a situation where folks are lying: you and you handlers are lying.
Whammo! Nain, hammer, head.
That's Obama. A big nothing. A zero. A platitude-spouting, neo-Marxist, empty suit.
It's shocking that Obama's blather passes for thoughtfulness with 45% of the voting public, that is, until you look at the demographics and realize that those closest to school-age are voting for this zero.
Now we know why Obama voted present instead of yes or no on so many bills in the Illinois legislature. He wasn't paid enough!
There, fixed it.
In 2007, Obama told the Planned Parenthood Action Fund that the Freedom of Choice Act would be the first piece of legislation that he would sign as president. The act would not only codify Roe v. Wade, but wipe out all current federal, state and local restrictions on abortion that pass muster under Roe, including the Hyde Amendment prohibiting federal funding of abortion.
