Posted on 08/22/2008 2:46:49 PM PDT by wagglebee
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.
Of all my reading on the pro-abort movement I can think of no young men involved in abortion rights. Not that Ive focused on that area much.
Barack seems to be in love with abortion. Perhaps like Gloria Steinem and Patricia Ireland. As Rush might say, Barry is a feminazi.
A man who will protect ‘abortion-by-neglect’ method for killing the little ones even outside the womb may not be in love with the evil but he’s certainly a major enabler and intends to continue being such.
No, he's a sitzpinkler.
Makes me wonder (by analogy to Bill Clinton's "feminist" values, contrasted to Paula Jones, Juanita Brodderick, etc.) if Obama might have any misogynist skeletons in his closet...?
No proof, not even an accusation. Just a passing thought.
Is it black liberation theology that paints the black woman as a queen?
One article. LOL!
The Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal indicted and convicted ten Nazi leaders for “encouraging and compelling abortions,” an act which the Tribunal characterized as “a crime against humanity.” As with their other crimes against humanity, the Nazis protested that “we were just following orders.” Lieutenant General Richard Hildebrandt, the SS (Schutzstaffel) Chief of the RKFVD’s Race and Settlement Office in Berlin, stated that “Up to now nobody had the idea to see in this interruption of pregnancy a crime against humanity.”

Untermensch, sub-human, or under-men was the dehumanizing label assigned to people regarded by the Nazis as so inferior that they were not human beings at all. It is worth noting that Nietzsche’s Overman, or super-human was to overcome the traditional ethicist and create a new morality, by the triumph of will over conscience. Thus spake Zarathustra
Nietzsche Nazis at their finest: “During the height of the killing season at Auchwitz living children were tossed directly into the fires of crematorium furnaces or flaming pits. Their screams could be heard throughout the camp compound....” The Abortion Holocaust

It's sad that this is the only document available to us that Bambi has written.
It's a shame that a man who wants to be the president of this great nations feels he must hide his own words from those who would be his people. But there it is.
I'm turning in to bed now. Good night.
Actually, I am thinking the opposite. I wouldn’t be surprised if it could be several different scenarios. Maybe he has helped pressure and/ or pay for one (or more abortions) and possibly there may be some “love children” out there with some prominent ears.
There are some pretty angry and militant pro-aborts out there and a good many of them are post-abortive. He sure acts like one which is why I wouldn’t be at all surprised if that describes his past.
No problem. I hope the effort was worthwhile.
