Skip to comments.In 2002, Barack Obama Supported Infanticide and I've Got the Transcript of His Words
Posted on 08/21/2008 10:23:34 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Editorial Note: People forget this issue came up more than once in Illinois. In 2001, Obama was concerned about abortion rights and the impact the Born Alive Infant Protection Act would have on abortion rights. In 2002, those concerns were addressed and fixed in the legislation. Now Obama's concerns were more clear. His views on life had no where else to hide.
What has Barack Obama said about his opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act?
Obama has made several points, which we should recount.
(Excerpt) Read more at redstate.com ...
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.)

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.
The info and links I provided do no good if left here, copy and spread the word.
I can make absolutely no sense of this statement.
It can't be any clearer: to Obama, the highest priority is not saving a born life. It is to keep as sacred the wishes of the mother.
Key to pinning Obama down on this point is to know what he feels should be done if a mother, having just given birth in an alley, decided to leave her baby in the dumpster.
“in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead”
that’s pretty clinical for a senator, isn’t it?
Good on you, doc.
It’s pathetic. Perhaps this country and definitely parts of this country the modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah...probably worse.
Folks, he’s not the only one.
Barb Boxer is on record in the Senate as stating that the baby doesn’t deserve rights until you take it home from the hospital.
I have a feeling that a lot more dhimmirats have this core belief than would publicly admit it.
I don’t think you can say enough about this Obama fellow to turn the Americans stomach!
I have him on youtube telling about baby that survived the abortion and the Christians are still willing to vote for evil.
We are living in a sick society and this is proof.
Obama has lied so many times it is hard to keep the record straight and the Christians are still willing to vote for him.
According to the latest polls, Obama won the debate as far as Christians goes because John McCain lost points with the Christians. Very sick!
And, since they ARE indefensible,
the leftist Obama supporters will just simply deny his position on this.
“I don’t support socialism, so Democrats aren’t socialist”
“Key to pinning Obama down on this point is to know what he feels should be done if a mother, having just given birth in an alley, decided to leave her baby in the dumpster.”
He has already answered that question and he answered it for his own daughters: he wouldn’t want them punished with an unwanted baby.
The callousness of his statements should disturb most “normal” people (note: leftists are not normal people).
He is the liberator -
the woman would experience too much burden on her decision if the botched abortion resulted in a live child.
After all, she was told it was no big deal, it’s not a baby, it’s just a punishment for having sex.
Which would explain why that nurse who had testified before Mr. Obama had to go into that disposal area and cradle the aborted infant untill it died. Right. Disgusting.
Obama is garbage.
“Obama the aider and abettor to murder of the unborn”...
and the BORN........
Someone needs to buy an ad in the major newspapers of the nation and show the country what Obama has said. Maybe someone should post this on all forums on the net—make a video and post on YouTube. Letters should be sent to all the papers in the land with this data.
They should be posted in their entirety on FR so EVERYONE can see he's not telling the truth.
