Posted on 08/22/2008 7:15:50 AM PDT by Renfield
There wasnt any question about what was happening. The abortions were going wrong. The babies werent cooperating. They wouldnt die as planned. Or, as Illinois state senator Barack Obama so touchingly put it, there was movement or some indication that, in fact, theyre not just coming out limp and dead.
No, Senator. They wouldnt go along with the program. They wouldnt just come out limp and dead.
They were coming out alive. Born alive. Babies. Vulnerable human beings Obama, in his detached pomposity, might otherwise include among the least of my brothers. But of course, an abortion extremist cant very well be invoking Saint Matthew, can he? So, for Obama, the shunning of these least of our brothers and sisters millions of them is somehow not among Americas greatest moral failings.......

“...When it got down to brass tacks, Barack Obama argued that protecting abortion doctors from legal liability was more important than protecting living infants from death...”
Bump for later reading.
McCarthy hits a home run!
So, you got pine-apple trees in your neck of the woods?
You are suppose to be talking about how many homes McCain owns no the history of candidates.
Didn’t you get the memo.
Barak Obama - The ‘throw grandma under the bus’ and ‘throw living babies out with the dirty laundry’ candidate.
Great article...thx for posting.
This is chilling.
Is this verifiable????
What would you sue an abortion “doctor” for? Failing to kill the baby?
God help us.
Hannity did an unbelievable job on this topic last night on H&C. man, he hammered it for a good 15 minutes. And one of his guests, a guy from redstate.com came right out (when asked by colmes if he really thought Obama supported Infanticide) with a pronounced YES. he would not back down.
This is the defining issue that will bury Obama. Keep it up Hannity — Obama/Infanticide every night, now until November.
Theres a transcript of a state senate debate, which took place on April 4, 2002. That transcript is available here ( http://www.ilga.gov/senate/transcripts/strans92/ST040402.pdf )(the pertinent section runs from pages 31 to 34).
Obama’s attitude is that the service being offered by these medical providers is the death of a baby. Therefore the doctors must be allowed to correct their mistakes if necessary. Obama is clearly in favor of infanticide and there’s no way for him to sugar coat his dismal record.
Yes, it's part of the official transcript, quoted on the second page of the article.
I don’t think you can get more authoritative than a transcript and audio from the Illinois State Senate.
Thanks Renfield for the link. And I hope Hannity keeps playing this audio over and over until November.
Obama’s trail is becoming obvious even though he and the Moron Media have tried in every way possible to do a cover-up. Just hearing the Il Senate transcript’s of BO on born Alive is a deal killer for many. He is tanking fast and will become like a caged animal as he is attacked from both the right and the left. This will not be pretty, BO will call out the pure hatred of the left/bigots to defend him as he falls.
If there were an ounce of real morality in the Democrat Party they would drop Obama like a hot potato. Unfortunately there isn’t even an ounce.
Very well written, and worth reading the whole thing. The second page includes excerpts from the transcript of the senate session in question and proves that McCarthy is not exaggerating.
I have also read—though not recently—that Obama’s wonderful “church” in Chicago owns a hospital where late-term abortions were regularly performed—a profitable procedure. Therefore, still another reason why he voted to let these babies die was that it might be inconvenient for this hospital, which was basically under the leadership of Rev. Wright, Obama’s good friend and patron.
I would like to see more confirmation of that, if it is true.
A very extreme view that will bite Obama on the ass.
There, fixed it!
This is a plain fact extensively reported by a number of sources.
The Democrats have tried to float the excuse that Obama was more concerned with the legal nuances of Roe vs. Wade. But Obama clearly does not have the legal acumen (surprising for a Harvard Law grad). Yes, he was editor of the Harvard Law Review, yet he never wrote an article. After graduation, he joined some two-bit law firm and represented the slum lord Tony Rezko. Then, he becomes a “community organizer.” Not your typical path for a Harvard Law grad. It seems like a waste of law school tuition, but I wonder if he paid tuition or was he there on some sort of free ride.
I know what the pattern is with dhimmirat voters.
If the candidate supports something that you know, deep down, is wrong, you simply deny that he DOES support it.
Obama has tried this - that would be infanticide, “it would be absurd to say that I support that”.
I don’t think this guy could get elected in Iran, never mind the US. Imagine the utter shamelessness of a media which is this thugs only true means of support.
Thanks for posting this. We are often told that abortion is necessary due to rape and incest, but it seems that two more pressing needs are being met with this procedure.
2)The desire to have the perfect child
While Obama’s words were chilling, the idea that abortions are being performed to erase the “consequences” of a freely made decision to engage in sex or because someone does not want to give birth to an imperfect human being is more chilling that what Obama had to say about the whole thing. I hope his words follow him all the way to his defeat in November.
I think it would be interesting to gather the statistics regarding how many abortions are performed due to rape or incest versus the “other” reasons. Maybe that has been done already and someone can provide a link???
Roe v Wade opened a floodgate. I just cannot ever support anyone as the leader of my country who supports what Obama did in the Illinois state senate. He placing the “desire if the mother” over the life of another human being. Very sad.

Throughout Obama’s testimony he talks about the “physician” and his medical assessment. He makes it sound as if the “physician” in question is actually practicing medicine, which is usually to promote the health of the patient. But the truth is, Obama is talking about doctors who are abortionists. Yes, these doctors have medical degrees, but most physicians, even those who consider themselves “pro-choice” negatively view abortionists as being on the very bottom rung of the medical profession. After all, abortionist prostitute themselves and their medical training to destroy life rather than save it.
WOW! Kudos to the great graphic.
I need to print that out and make a bumber sticker out of it.
Fantastic article, I seen Sean talk about it abit on last night’s H&C...that Colmes would agrue that the nurse (Stenick?) should be brought up on charges is as rerehensible as the junior Senator from IL is on this matter!!!!!!!
movement or some indication that, in fact, theyre not just coming out limp and dead.
Did he really say that?
My husband noted that there is a conflict of interest here. Obama’s church has a significant relationship with this hospital where Jill Stanek worked, IIRC. At the very least, church leaders serve on the board of the hospital. These abortions are a money-maker for the hospital I would think, to be very crass, even though the hospital is a non-profit. Given a relationship between the hospital and the church, Obama should have recused himself when this came before the IL Senate.
Can you believe that the infanticide that Ms. Stannech, the nurse, experienced was at an institution called Christ Hospital?
OK wow...just read the full article with the citation...this guy is sicker then I thought...and that argument from the last quote in the article...that’s like saying we don’t need laws against murder because we can just trust that people won’t commit murder.
Obama: “if the physician discovered, after the labor had been induced, that, in fact, he made an error, or she made an error, and, in fact, that this was not a nonviable fetus but, in fact, a live child, that that physician, of his own accord or her own accord, would not try to exercise the sort of medical measures and practices that would be involved in saving that child. Now, it if you think there are possibilities that doctors would not do that, then maybe this bill makes sense, but I I suspect and my impression is, is that the Medical Society suspects as well that doctors feel that they would be under that obligation, that they would already be making these determinations”
And so the reason not to prohibit this black and white evil from occuring?
Obama continues, “an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation to come in and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.”
So let’s not risk “burdening the decision to have an abortion” by protecting a baby. I mean that past “choice” which is completely irrelevant at the point we are discussing is more important then a living baby in front of us?
Obama concludes, “if these are children who are being born alive, I, at least, have confidence that a doctor who is in that room is going to make sure that theyre looked after.”
Why would you have that confidence? They are ABORTIONISTS! Obviously they have rationalized any human worth away or they couldn’t do what they are doing. So why would you have “confidence” that they will “look after” these babies?
This is sick! Does a man with two daughters really believe this? Or is this purely politics? I don’t know which would be worse.
What a twisted sicko.
He was obviously not well briefed on what's going down regarding ACTUAL recordings ~
Just made him look dumb as a rock.
Thanks. I know I have seen a number of references to this hospital connection earlier, though not recently, but wasn’t sure how accurate they were or where they originated. If it’s the hospital that Jill Stanek worked for, then that’s especially damning.
Non-profits are as interested in money as anyone else, if not more so. More money means bigger salaries, more staff to order around or positions to give your relatives, more gadgets, new wings, and less sweat over fund raising.
The baby that Jill Stanek held for 45 minutes until it stopped breathing had Downs Syndrome...I have read on this forum that in Sweden close to 80% of Down Syndrome babies are aborted now...and I’ve read that in the USA the number of babies born with Down Syndrome has come down dramatically over the last decade...all these young money chasers in NYC barely have time to raise their own healthy children...a Down Syndrome child not only wouldn’t fit the image of beauty and perfection that they seek but they take a lot of work to care for...the vanity and superficiality of the elitist liberal young Left is truly chilling...they are hollow and self-absorbed for the most part...that’s why Obama is their candidate...he is them.
hoist him from his own petard and watch him try to deny
What a truly awful statement and totally indefensible
Humans are things.
That the essence of it. Humans as fungible and ultimately disposable "assets".
This is why you've got the likes of Margaert Sanger and Dr. Peter Singer doing their damndest to move the goalposts when it comes to defining life and humanity. Singer, for wexample, has argues that infants up to 28 months old don't really have any cognitive ability that defines them as human. So it's OK to 'terminate' them if the parent (or really, the State) so chooses.
Who lives, who dies. That's the power they seek. They are all monsters, monsters from the deepest dark heart of of our existence and history is replete with the outcomes and the evidence of their sick Utopian ideas.
History also tells us what we must do to deal with them. As does my tagline.
I do think this could sink him completely. I could see a incubator with a 22 week old infant being shown with Obama’s words being used against that backdrop. Then read the first line of Declaration of Independence about life.
I’m not fully aware of the extent of the relationship either. Like you, I remembered something from some time ago. I just looked on the internet and found that some of the prominent church leaders serve on the board. But I thought the relationship went deeper than that. Something about Wright doing so much in his community to enable minorities and that included the hospital. However, this needs to be studied more carefully before we make these linkages. I think they’re there, though. I just like to do my homework first and be accurate.
This is truly a monster that poses as a man.
Strangely enough, the article is about whether unborn children can sue their parents for negligence. This is clearly an issue Obama was interest in since law school.
It also makes his “punished with a baby” comment more understandable.
