Michelle Obama Under Fire for 2004 Letter Defending Partial-Birth Abortions

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Michelle Obama, the attorney wife of pro-abortion Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, is coming under fire for a letter she wrote defending partial-birth abortions. The 2004 letter, written to help Obama in his campaign for his U.S. Senate seat, opposes the ban on the abortion procedure.

In February 2004, Michelle Obama penned a fundraising letter to help her husband Barack raise funds for his Illinois-based Senate seat.

The letter contends the federal ban on partial-birth abortions "is clearly unconstitutional" and "a flawed law."

Though the three-day-long partial-birth abortion procedure involves the partial birth of a baby during the middle trimester of pregnancy and the jamming of scissors into the back of her head to kill her, Obama’s wife describes it as "legitimate" medicine.

"The fact remains, with no provision to protect the heath of the mother, this ban on a legitimate medical procedure is clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned," Michelle Obama writes in the letter.

This just proves that Obama is for abortion up to birth in my mind...Jill Stanek said it best in the article: ""I’d like to ask Michelle how in the world she could in good conscience raise money from fear-mongering about this barbaric abortion procedure," she added."

Obama is famous for his partial abortion stance in Illinois at the time when he was a state senator. She was just backing up Hubby.

“Obama is famous for his partial abortion stance in Illinois at the time when he was a state senator.”

Yes he is, and when he was running for President, he tried to back track and say his bill did not mean what it said.....

Wrong. I think it is clear that he is in favor of abortion even after birth as well.

IMHO since day one I am convinced she is the more ardent Marxist of the two. I fear her more, because IMHO she is calling the plays behind the scenes probably more than we know.

——”The fact remains, with no provision to protect the health of the mother, this ban on a legitimate medical procedure is clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned,” Michelle Obama writes in the letter.-—

There are no such medical circumstances, unless the “mental health” (as in “Doe v. Bolton”) of the mother qualifies. But it’s hard to see how murdering an infant can improve anyone’s mental health.

God protect us from these lost souls.

Michelle is a cold, cold self-serving woman

I don't care how many hairline waxes, eyebrow shapers and skin blemish coverups they use on her - the coldness shows in her eyes and mouth everytime the camera catches her unguarded

I do not see how any human woman who has given birth to a child and waited to hear that cry, can call “partial birth abortion” a legitimate medical procedure”

Would she hold her daughter's hand as her child's head was pulled into the birth canal, suctioned of its brains, and then delivered?

This could be great for the pubbies if they choose to use it. Otherwise, there’s nothing these 2 Marxist slobs do that interests or surprises me. We need to concentrate on getting them out of the WH this November, and that’s that.

There is a vote by Obama on record (but I don’t remember when ... don’t think it was when he was senator, but in some office.

Anyway, he voted that if a baby survived an attempted abortion, it was okay for the doctor to go ahead and kill the baby, since that was the wish of the mother.

Let’s not put this desicable couple back in office no matter what.

Is it true that Michelle Obama can no longer practice law, and if so, why? I’m just curious, and my question goes to whether she somehow lost her law license, and whether she’s eligible to practice law after they lose in November.

protect the health of the mother

That is such BS! Those women could care less about 'the health of the mother', they just want to be allowed to kill the unborn any damn time they please.

I think the official line is that she ‘voluntarily surrendered’ it. There are numerous explanations about this type of comment for a lawyer having this in their record -from not paying fees to whatever. Somehow, I think such a blase explanation is not operative here. You might recall, Clinton also lost his license to practice in Arkansas when all was said and done. I also believe I’ve seen where Barack Hussein Soetoro has the same status.

Moochelle can in good conscience support Partial-Birth-Abortion, because she more than likely supports her husband's belief that it's okay to withhold life-saving medical care from a baby born live from an abortion.

I love it when liberals claim something is unconstitutional, then provide no argument to support their statements. It's a good thing Moochie is barred from practicing law, because she'd never make any money if she had to argue a case in court. Dumber than a box of rocks.

Her poor daughters. How would you be able to deal with a mother who with no pang of conscience could have easily had you killed just before being born? I hope those girls never realize that they were just conceived and delivered to be political props.

This can be easily veriified at https://www.iardc.org Stands for Illinois Attorney Registration And Disciplinary Committee. It’s the official arm of lawyer discipline in Illinois; and they are very strict and mean as hell.

1. President Barack Obama, former editor of the Harvard Law Review, is no longer a “lawyer”. He surrendered his license back in 2008 in order to escape charges he lied on his bar application.

A “Voluntary Surrender” is not something where you decide “Gee, a license is not really something I need anymore, is it?” and forget to renew your license. No, a “Voluntary Surrender” is something you do when you’ve been accused of something, and you ‘voluntarily surrender” your license five seconds before the state suspends you.

2 Michelle Obama “voluntarily surrendered” her law license in 1993. after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or STAND TRIAL FOR insurance FRAUD.

As I recall obama voted to put a baby born alive in the anteroom of the delivery (post attempted abortion) and let them die of hypothermia and respiratory failure. This sasquatch position should shock noone.

What should be shocking is that the black community is strongly pro-Margaret Sanger who set up Planned Parenthood for the express purpose of killing young black babies because she felt that blacks were and inferior race. Yet, they overlook that fact. Reason, logic, rational thought, barack, sasquatch,....none seem to go together with these two.

The method used to kill the babies if memory serves was indifference. Pretty sure they put them in another room and rendered no care. People are evil.

I agree. The same could be said for Hillary Clinton, Rosalyn Carter, and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Health exception....

"Whether, in the words of the Georgia statute, "an abortion is necessary" is a professional judgment that the Georgia physician will be called upon to make routinely. We agree with the District Court, 319 F. Supp., at 1058, that the medical judgment may be exercised in the light of all factors - physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman's age - relevant to the well-being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health."

Doe v Bolton - As bad as Roe. Thank you Injustice Blackmun.

It’s amazing how low some people will stoop to sell their souls for votes. Worse yet, it seems to work just fine for them!!
