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.
And you don't see the contradiction there?
If they did, how would they contact plaintiff's attorneys? Ouija board?
Mr. Ertelt isn't usually hysterically garbled. I'll chalk this one up to his having to attempt to make sense of an "argument" proposed by young Barry Obama.
You hit the nail on the head right there. He’s half whitey for heaven’s sake. I’m sure that burns him every damn day!
his Dad was a drunk, left him, his mother dumped him on her parents. seems he somewhat rejected the love of his grandparents. trying to live up to an absent and then dead drunk father.
He has sold his soul to cinders .... thus the black heart.
My question...who's your real daddy, kids?
This isn’t surprising. It’s useful for knowing what kind of people Obama will appoint to the Federal Courts. With many current justices on the Supreme Court getting on in years, that’s an urgent issue.
“seems he somewhat rejected the love of his grandparents.”
His grandfather seems to also have been a loser. His grandmother was the breadwinner.
Yes he did sell his soul. When you see him sometimes striking a pose, tilting his head back, with his eyes cast downward as he looks down his nose at his audience, like Mussolini use to do, making claims to be the greatest president, the one WE’VE been waiting for, a MESSIAH, you know he’s evil/unstable and a nutter.
We must get rid of this person, before he gets rid of us.
He wasn’t the editor (which, as you know, requires skill, knowledge and the application of a considerable amount of effort) - he was the president, a generally social appointment.
I don't feel any pity for oboma...he has looks, education, pampering of his grandparents, with a little perversion thrown in. And he liked it. He made his choices, and so did some of us. And now we ALL will suffer at the mercy of this maniac until we remove him.
I hope his daughters are deeply disappointed in him and their greedy mother for being a hypocrite on the issue.
“THIS! Totally! Ive 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.”
Since you fellows are so familiar with law reviews, you are also aware that very few of the articles are written by the university law students. The top students at Harvard Law are given the prestigious positions of working on the Law Review, but by and large they are editors, not writers. Certainly a major law review, like Harvard, is not going to allocate 32 pages of its highly prestigious journal to a mere law student. These articles are written by people who are considered to be the nation’s top thinkers in the law, usually by the professors at the law school or other law schools.
Why is it that those who ask for mercy are the last to give it?
That's a ready-made campaign ad. How will phony pro-life Rats like Sen. Bob Casey defend such a statement? They must be asked to repudiate it!
Once a sick bastard, always a sick bastard.
He's been a moral coward for a long, long time. At least he's a Christian.
possible....however what he is most despisin of, he hates with evil intent..

Absolutely untrue. Every academic law journal has a section reserved to law student “Notes” which are of the same length as the “Articles”. The difference between “notes” and “articles” being only the status of the author. The length is generally the same.
Example: I went to an Ivy law school like Obama, I had a note published in the law journal, and it was 40 pages and had 238 footnotes. And that’s typical of a student note.
