First Vanity Post: Folks, I need actual sources for Obama's fourth trimester abortion positions to present to a doubting lib.
Forth trimester, eh?
By George, I hope you are being sarcastic! LOL
I think dolphins might have a twelve-month gestation period.
I misplaced them. Due to the 5th sitting to my right. ;>
You mean the infants born alive bill, right?
When you get them, I want to see them. So, are we all in the fourth trimester?
I heard Rush use that term today, thought it quite appropriate.
Oh yeah, I’ve been there!
When Obama was in the Illinois legislature the subcommittee he CHAIRED bottled up a bill which would have forced doctors to give care to babies who had survived an abortion attempt. This bill had overwhelming support because of a huge scandal resulting from just such an event and the reaction of a nurse at the hospital where it was being performed. This is the basis of the charge that he supports infanticide as well as abortion.
The baby obviously damaged and dying was abandoned in a utility room where the nurse discovered her? and stayed with it. This hideous fraud prevented a law from protecting/comforting/easing such babies.
I am sure you can fill us in on all the relevant facts here.
I could not answer that but I do know pro-abortion people that believe the mother should have until the baby is ten days old to decide whether they live or not.
Their reasoning is the baby is dependent on the mother so therefore the mother should be able to decide.
Interesting because with my kids they were pretty much totally dependent until about five and by the time they were in the twenties not so much.
are you talking about the abortion survivors, or the vague answers about how “life” begins at conception, but “personhood” doesn’t begin until sometime he doesn’t get around to saying?
LOL ... so I’m right .........right? LOL
Dang, using that math I am in my 180th trimester.
there is no such thing as the fourth trimester, it is a play on words because obama did not support a bill where if a baby survived an abortion a doctor would be called in to save or care for the baby it was called:
Born Alive Infant protection act
On March 30, 2001, Barack Obama stood on the Illinois Senate floor as the only opponent to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. Essentially the bill stated that if a child were born alive due to a botched abortion, a doctor would be called in to care for the child. It was a straightforward bill, allowing doctors the opportunity to take a viable baby into care and give the child the opportunity at life.
