Barack Obamaís Sole Article in Harvard Law Review Promotes Abortion
Life News ^ | 8/22/08 | Steven Ertelt

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. Obama’s name wasn’t 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.

Obama’s 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.

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.

I’ve wondered more than once if they are actually his. . .

I don't think his wife knows if they're actually hers!

We already know he is a Marxist

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.

“Unearthed” and “Unsigned” even though he may think those
things I didn't read the paper so not sure what is in it we all know Obam loves all Abortion. I think it sounds like bait to me put out by Politico to force a gotcha moment on Republicans just my two cents.

For someone the left claims is so brilliant, there sure isn't much written evidence.

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?

“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.”

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.

In a discussion of abortion itself, Obama wrote that government has more important business than "ensuring that any particular fetus is born."

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.
