Obama Ad Calls Abortion Survivor, McCain "Sleazy Despicable Liars"
LifeNews.com ^ | September 19, 2008 | Steven Ertelt

Posted on 09/19/2008 10:24:07 AM PDT by SErtelt

Washington, DC -- A new commercial from the Obama slams a survivor of a botched late-term abortion and presidential candidate John McCain as "sleazy" for promoting a "despicable lie" that calls Obama into question for his votes against providing medical care to babies who survive failed abortions.

As LifeNews.com reported, Gianna Jessen, a young woman who survived a failed saline abortion in the late 1970s, chides Obama for voting repeatedly against bills in the Illinois legislature to stop infanticide.

She released an ad about Obama's votes against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and pointed out how even abortion advocates like Hillary Clinton and John Kerry voted for a similar bill on the federal level.

The Obama campaign has just released a scathing new ad in response.

Who is Obama calling a liar? The baby born via a botched abortion. This man is a horrid excuse for a human being.

By comparison, no veterinarian would let a suffering, mangled DOG lay in a dirty linen closet until it died.

Bad move. Obama just let the American people know he not only sees nothing wrong with infanticide, he's an abortion on demand extremist.

The only sleazy despicable liar in this equation is Obama himself. The fact of the matter is that had Gianna been tossed in a garbage can in Chicago, if Obama had had his way on the bill, she’d be DEAD, because they would have let her die.

Why the obvious is so lost on some people continues to astound me.

This is a good strategy on Obama’s part: calling an abortion survivor a sleazy liar. I like it. I would encourage him to spend a lot of money on this particular ad.

uh oh, I think he’s catching on... I better change tactics.

As Gianna Jessen said, “I’m living proof that these babies have the right to live.”

Obama dares to attack something like that! What he’s doing is insensitive, heartless and cruel. And how dare they call abortion a simple “choice.” It is MURDER!!!!!

We are not “anti-choice;” rather, we are “anti-murder-a-baby.” I don’t understand how people can support abortion at all.

What Obama supports is a human rights violation and immoral. That man doesn’t deserve to be our President!!

When will these liberals get it through their heads that America has killed over 50 million babies in the past 35 years and that it needs to stop? Honestly, do they have any regard for life?

One of the worst political ads I’ve ever seen.

Of course Obama supports infanticide. It’s very well-documented.

But what is Obama talking about? John McCain supports killing babies whose fathers committed rape or incest. And he’s not running on a platform to ban abortion.

I think Obama is a sleazy and despicable liar. He fought a bill that would force doctors to save children born alive during an abortion. Now he’s trying to deny it because it hurts him politically. Too late, Obambi, you already showed your true colors.

This ad will work. Abortion is the religion of the left.

Gianna could debate Barack Obama on this issue but he’d say that it is above his pay grade.

Calling her a LIAR is NOT above his pay grade, however.

If I'm wrong and the American people still want to put Obama in the White House - assuming the polls are to be believed - its a reflection on their love of celebrity than doing what is right. I will never change my views just to have our side win an election. The price for that is too high.

Alan Colmes, when Gianna was on H&C, called it patently ridiculous to say that 0bama supports infanticide.

All the libs I’ve talked to say the same thing.

Doesn’t matter what evidence you put in front of them, it’s the same answer - that’s ridiculous. No refutation of the evidence, just a refusal to acknowledge the support of infanticide.

I’m leaving my tagline alone, but closing with this:

0bama supporters, what’s the attraction? Is it the Marxism or the Infanticide?

Speaking of platforms, you should actually compare them on abortion and four other life issues. It's laid out plainly here for you...

The polls are meaningless prior to the two weeks leading up to the election, and IMO are worthless then, too.

Bottom line is people do not react well to emotional outbursts & vitriolic language from their presidential candidates.

Abortion is the religion of the left.

Close, collectivism/statism is the religion, abortion is the sacrament.

Seriously, if you want to understand the abortion issue, it is NOT about "keeping it legal", but about "keeping it amoral". That means that the "pro-choicers" want NO INDICATION in public policy that would remind them of how wrong it is. Their psyches can't allow it.

"A new commercial from the Obama slams a survivor of a botched late-term abortion and presidential candidate John McCain as "sleazy" for promoting a "despicable lie" that calls Obama into question for his votes against providing medical care to babies who survive failed abortions." Oh, it is much worse than that. Barack Hussein Obama was trying to protect a method becoming common in abortuaries, wehre the abortionist induces premature labor, causing the pregnancy to end with a premature alive baby to be left to struggle and die unattended, alone. Obama was trying to protect infanticide as a means to stop the 'punishment of a baby'. The lying dead-soul almost black man was defending infanticide as a means to prevent the punishment of a baby. Slick Obama

Are you SURE his ad attacks her personally, not just John McCain?

Because I didn't hear that.

He is making statements that are cold and calculated.
The difference is so obvious to those of us here.

The sad thing is, there are folks in the dim party, that think it's okay for a Presidential candidate to throw out abusive, demeaning and scurrilous words about others.

That's just one of the reasons he is so scary to folks. He sounds like a 5 year old!

This girl was on Hannity and Colmes.

Colmes degraded her by insisting that obama did no wrong in his not voting to protect born alive babies by citing the federal law that supposedly protects them.

She countered him pretty well, except when he continually over talked her.

Colmes is despicable.

Okay here we go. I am going to pray online for the whole world to see.

Heavenly Father, we glorify and praise you! Lord we call on you to expose Barack Obama. Your Word says that we don not fight flesh and blood but powers of darkness and principalities. Lord, Satan and his minions are working overtime through Barack Obama to spread their lies. Lord we call upon you to fight this battle against this man. Lord make a way for the truth to be known. Make a way for John McCain and Sarah Palin to get their message out over the top of the media who are also complicit in lying to our nation. Father humble us, to come before you each day and to pray for your favor to be upon this nation. Father let your will be done. In the name of your Son, AMEN.

There is a growing group of freepers who have a prayer alarm, set for 9PM Eastern every night, to join in praying that the Lord will confuse the enemy, confound the efforts of satan’s minions seeking to lie and deceive to win the election. Joining in is completely voluntary and you need not even mention you've decided to join in. We The People have someone listening, and He holds this old world in His palm, to do as He chooses, especially when His children beseech Him for His Grace.
