Aborted Child Born Alive and Left to Die ^ | May 23, 2012 | AWR Hawkins

Posted on 05/24/2012 7:51:35 AM PDT by Kaslin

In Vietnam, a family is distraught because their child was born alive, covered in blankets by the hospital, and left to die. In a twisted scenario where one bad decision led to even worse results, the parents had been convinced to abort their child after seeing ultra-sounds that showed troubling birth defects. After the abortion, the child was placed in a bed under blankets until the family could return to recover the body. But upon returning and removing the blankets, family members saw the child and realized the ultrasounds had been wrong—the child had been born healthy. Moreover, the child was still alive.

However, the child had been bleeding profusely, and although the hospital immediately began working to save the child’s fleeting life, in the end nothing could be done to save it.

Had this terrible situation arisen in Illinois when Barack Obama was a state senator, it would have been illegal for doctors or nurses to try to save the child once it was discovered alive. For as an Illinois state senator, Obama “voted four times against legislation to protect and care for infants accidentally born alive during late-term abortions.” As Erik Erickson has said: “Obama did not think that a child who was alive and outside the mother’s womb should be considered a child for the purposes of giving the child equal protection rights if it was the mother and doctor’s intention that the child be killed.”

In other words, where death was intended no life could be salvaged.

Thus, it came as no surprise that a House Judiciary Report from 2000 said physicians at one prominent hospital in Chicago had been aborting “healthy infants and infants with non-fatal deformities [and although] many of these babies...lived for hours after birth, no efforts [were] made to determine if any of them could have survived with appropriate medical assistance.”

In one specific example from an Illinois hospital, an aborted baby “left to die on the counter of the soiled utility room wrapped in a disposable towel, was accidentally thrown in the garbage.” Later, when hospital staff realize what had happened and begin looking for the child, they “were going through the trash [and] the baby fell out of the towel and on to the floor.”

I’m a bit confused here: Is this part of Obama’s promise of “hope and change” or simply a precursor of his pledge to “fundamentally change America”?

Think again about the child in Vietnam. There, the discovery of a live baby was a traumatizing experience to which everyone responded by trying to save the child’s life: the room was frantic with people fighting for life. But in Chicago, Illinois—which was Obama’s Illinois—it would have been illegal to try to save the child’s life, just as it was illegal to try to save the life of any child who’d survived abortion.

Here’s the bottom line: In Vietnam an aborted child was born alive, but left to die—just like Obama would have wanted it.

How any rational human being could find that acceptable is beyond me. How any rational human being could support and elect a person that believes that is acceptable is unbelievable, yet here we are.

Only someone like OBAMA could hold a living, breathing, crying little baby and--while feeling its warmth, watching it move, and hearing it cry out--would say that it is DEAD.

obama AND Moochelle not only approve of this, they campaign for it as a “woman’s right” to have a “legal medical procedure”

the perfect couple

BTW. I believe obama voted for this not just once. but muitiple times. His public voting record is, well, public

Any Catholic who did not know this in 2008 and voted for this amoral man - shame

obama does not see an unwanted baby as human, but rather as a punishment

Letting a punishment die is not so troubling to his confused morality

A takeoff of the old Bob Dole quote would be a photo of Carter, Clinton, and Obama, and: “Hear no evil, see no evil, and Evil.”

“Obama approves of this, believe it or not.”

Yes he does....................


In 2002, Congress passed, with not a single dissenter in either house, and President Bush
signed into law the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA), which ensures full
protections of the law to babies who are born alive, at any stage of development, whether
or not the baby’s delivery was natural or the result of a botched abortion. The law defines
a child as “born alive” if, after “the complete expulsion or extraction from his or her
mother,” the baby “breathes or has a beating heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord, or
definite movement of voluntary muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has
been cut.”

Meanwhile, between 2001 and 2003 then-Illinois state Sen. Obama effectively voted
against the state legislature’s (BORN-ALIVE
INFANTS PROTECTION ACT) BAIPA on at least three occasions—once voting “present”
and twice voting “no.”’

Can’t read this. Wonder why so many Americans favor this?
