Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) How strongly does Barack Obama believe in unlimited abortions? Strongly enough that the only article he wrote for the Harvard Law Review while he was a law school student talked about how fervently believed in legalized abortion. Obamas name wasnt attached to any other legal scholarship during the time.
In an article unearthed by the Politico web site, Obama, as the president of the Harvard Law Review, wrote an unsigned article touting abortion.
The web site says the article comes in at six pages and is contained in the third volume of the 1990 Harvard Law Review.
In the work, Obama considered a parenthetical abortion issue whether unborn children have a legal right to sue their mothers for damage sustained during pregnancy, from such things as alcohol or illegal drugs.
Obama says no and writes supportively of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case and another from the Illinois Supreme Court saying no such right exists.
According to Politico, Obama wrote: "[T]he case raises the broader policy and constitutional considerations that argue against using civil liability to control the behavior of pregnant women."
In a discussion of abortion itself, Obama wrote that government has more important business than "ensuring that any particular fetus is born."
He also decried any limits on abortion, saying the government has an interest in "preventing increasing numbers of children from being born in to lives of pain and despair."
Politico said the Obama campaign confirmed the pro-abortion presidential candidate wrote the piece in question and that it was one of the typical articles law students would write briefing and opining on federal and state court decisions.
In an email to the web site, Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt also confirmed that Obama "remains committed to" the sentiments he expressed in the piece.
Obamas article is on page 823 of Volume 103 of the Harvard Law Review and would likely be located in larger public libraries and databases that chronicle legal articles in scholarly publications.
I am trying to find anything Obama wrote when he was in college. I know his college writings have been sealed. What is he hiding? We already know he is a Marxist.
Obama’s Harvard Law Review case comment is linked at the website above.
Obama is “all in” on killing babies .... before, during, and after birth.
Two things. Politico “unearthed” this Obama’s paper? That’s a surprise. And Obama’s only paper at Harvard is only 6 pages long? Come on... I was writing 6 page reports in grade school. How can anyone graduate Harvard, much less any college, by writing a tiny 6 page paper? Something is fishy...
I don’t believe in abortion under ANY circumstances but I wish o’bastard’s mother did!
I’ve been published in Law Reviews three times. I have never heard of a six page law review paper, article, comment, note or otherwise.
If this is true, this is such a joke.
“preventing increasing numbers of children from being born in to lives of pain and despair.”
A completely inappropriate statement to make in a law review note. Why am I not surprised?
I looked at the article myself. Backing out the extensive footnote scribbling, it is about 3 and 1/2 pages long. Could have been written over a weekend, and this guy was the Editor?
and Ralphie got a C for writing about a Red Ryder r Rifle would make a good Christmas present?
In Obama's case, the important business would be destroying the country via the government.
“A completely inappropriate statement to make in a law review note. Why am I not surprised?”
Clearly you are not intelligent enough to recognize the brilliant mind that had to be behind writing such a statement! He was obviously showing off his superior intellect by inserting poor grammar AND personal opinions into a legal document so that the little people would be impressed! Sorry that it went over your head! /sarc/
I wonder if his daughters have any idea how lucky they are to be alive?
I’ve wondered more than once if they are actually his. . .
So, Obama's vision of gov't is that it is not dedicated to life.
In other words, if you want to kill your child, if a terrorist kills your child or if an illegal alien kills your child, the gov't has no role in ensuring that child's life is saved.
What is he hiding? Probably nothing, as in he did only the minimum necessary, and there’s just not much there there.
Politico is an arm of the Dem party. I am sure this is a coordinated leak to help Obama with the women's vote. The Fluke case was just a setup to help Obama's flagging appeal to women.
This is the only article Obama wrote for the Harvard Law Review. We don’t know what other papers he wrote while a student at the school.
So have I.
LOL - the Obama wh is doing damage control and trying to get ahead of this through its surrogates in the msm
if that clown writes the same way he talks, sans teleprompter, there is no way that he actually wrote anything. The man is a moron, pure and simple.
Ubama sounds like somebody who wishes he was aborted.
Who cares about 6 pages!
The content of this is horryfying!
The implications of what he is advocating is pure communist evil!
I don't think his wife knows if they're actually hers!
So I guess opining about abortion issues really isn’t above his pay grade at all....hmmm?
Yeah, we do. But, try informing your average sheeperal of this fact, and they'll dismiss you as some sort of "kook" or "birther" or, most likely, a "racist".
They can do this, until you stick some undeniable evidence under their nose. BO & company doesn't want this undeniable evidence to be available.
“...Obama is all in on killing babies .... before, during, and after birth....”
If he feels so strongly about abortion, why doesn’t he lead by example.
BTW, I say that about anyone that feels so strongly about abortion. Have been doing it for years.
So according to Obama its the govt who determines what babies will have a good life or not and that is how we are supposed to determine births?
This psycho is an evil F%$^^&!
There will never ever be an "Obama, in his own hand"
There's something in the above comment that feels sad. Almost like he's coming from a place of his own pain. Anyone else read it this way?
Yeah, he can self-abort & prematurely terminate his presidency.
What am I missing in this article? How is it known that obama wrote this?
Yep, sump’n aint add’n up here.
“Ive been published in Law Reviews three times. I have never heard of a six page law review paper, article, comment, note or otherwise.

THIS! Totally! I’ve also been published in law reviews multiple times, and the shortest article was 32 pages with over 200 footnotes. This many is a fraud on every level.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Evidently, some evidence is more evident than others.
Then why is LIFE the first item on the list?
Yet another smoke screen/distraction..? Its hard to tell because the last 3+ years have lies on lies.
Ok; I'll tell you:
Without LIFE the others really don't amount to much.
His argument is very poor, and he simply characterizes alternatives to his view as dubious or ill-conceived. That is mere name-calling, and not principled or factual argument.
My thoughts exactly. This could explain the apologies to other countries, his reasons for allowing gas to go higher (Rush spoke of the guilt of using more than our fair share), and his thoughts on abortion. He apparently feels guilty about his existence, American existence, his mother not able to obtain a legal abortion. This is not way to go around in life, and of course it makes it dangerous for all the rest of us too.
He also decried any limits on abortion, saying the government has an interest in “preventing increasing numbers of children from being born in to lives of pain and despair.”
Yes, one suspects that this is perhaps a diversion from some other things that may have been written for him (or maybe even that he wrote).
I'm sure she did believe in abortion. Only it was illegal in 1961. If Roe v. Wade had been decided in 1960, Obama would have been properly disposed of as medical waste.
Obama sees things in terms of a Third World socialist. His father was an African Marxist and his mother a leftist skank. Nothing in his background or experience - far left community organizer, 20 years with the hate-monger Pastor Wright, close friendship with terrorist Bill Ayers, shady real estate deal with Syrian (now jailed) swindler Tony Rezko, associations with Louis Farrakhan and black militants - makes him a real American in terms of values or world view. Obama spent 150 days in the U.S. Senate, about 120 of them campaigning. He spent a few years in the Illinois state legislature voting present. Never has America been so poorly led. Its like the nation committed suicide by stupidity.

Can’t help but think:
Look what Breitbart started!
