    The Obama administration is threatening two states after they made the decision to cut funding to the Planned Parenthood abortion business in the wake of a series of videos exposing how Planned Parenthood sells aborted babies and their body parts. Alabama became the third state to de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business in the wake of five videos exposing how the abortion giant sells the body parts of aborted babies for research. The state followed Louisiana, which is revoking a contract with Planned Parenthood using state Medicaid dollars, and New Hampshire, which zapped $650,000 in state taxpayer funding. In Alabama,...

    (CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama told a California crowd last week that migrant worker activist Cesar Chavez’s gift is a “reminder that we are all God’s children, that every life has value.” “It’s people,” Obama said. “More than higher wages or better working conditions, that was Cesar’s gift to us – a reminder that we are all God’s children, that every life has value, that, in the words of one of his heroes, Dr. King, ‘we are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.’”

    Did Obama vote in favor infanticide? Pro-life activists have long made the argument that he did, and that a conspiracy of silence from the mainstream media is the only thing that has prevented Americans from knowing the full extent of Obama’s extreme views on the abortion issue. Now, newly unearthed audio from 2002 shows Barack Obama, then a state senator in Illinois, discussing the bill that has elicited charges that he voted to allow “infanticide”: the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA). The bill was introduced after pro-life nurse Jill Stanek witnessed babies being born alive after failed abortions, then...

    As Mark Steyn notes on the homepage, certain pundits who praise liberal politicians for their purported empathy have derided the Santorums for taking home their infant son Gabriel, who had died two hours after birth. Eugene Robinson, for example, said Rick Santorum is “not a little weird, he’s really weird.” I don’t recall these pundits making any similar comments about Barack Obama’s opposition to the Illinois state version of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA). The act was introduced in the Illinois state legislature to require that babies who survived botched abortions would be provided care in the same...

    A young mother's premature baby died in her arms after doctors refused to help because it was born just before 22-week cut-off point for treatment. Sarah Capewell, 23, gave birth to her son Jayden when she was 21 weeks and five days into her pregnancy. Although doctors refused to place the baby in intensive care, Jayden lived for two hours before he passed away at James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, Norfolk, last October.

    Miami-A doctor's license was revoked Friday in the case of a teenager who planned to have an abortion but instead gave birth to a baby she says was killed when clinic staffers put it into a plastic bag and threw it in the trash. The doctor, Pierre Jean-Jacques Renelique, was not present when the baby was born, but the Florida Medical Board upheld Department of Health allegations that he falsified medical records, inappropriately delegated tasks to unlicensed personnel and committed malpractice. Joseph Harrison, the attorney representing Renelique at the license revocation hearing in Tampa, said Renelique has not decided whether...

Then why, why, why did Obama shoot down a bill in 2003 to protect live-born survivors of abortion? Summary and comment by NRLC spokesman Douglas Johnson: "Newly obtained documents prove that in 2003, Barack Obama, as chairman of an Illinois state Senate committee, voted down a bill to protect live-born survivors of abortion -- even after the panel had amended the bill to contain verbatim language, copied from a federal bill passed by Congress without objection in 2002, explicitly foreclosing any impact on abortion.

Three days later, she sat in a reclining chair, medicated to dilate her cervix and otherwise get her ready for the procedure. Only Renelique didn't arrive in time. According to Williams and the Florida Department of Health, she went into labor and delivered a live baby girl.

    (CNSNews.com) - Three times over the last several days, Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has focused her attention on what she described as Sen. Barack Obama’s “appalling” and “absolutely atrocious” refusal to support legislation in the Illinois State Senate that would have required medical care for a baby who survived an abortion and would have defined such a baby—alive and fully outside its mother’s womb—as a person. Palin’s focus on the issue began with her appearance Thursday on Laura Ingraham’s nationally syndicated talk radio show.  It then continued later Thursday at a joint rally with Republican presidential candidate John...

While on a bus tour of Pennsylvania, a key battleground state, Palin also spoke publicly for the first time about the outcome of an Alaska legislative investigation into the so-called "Troopergate" affair. She asserted that the probe proved she did nothing illegal or unethical despite its finding, released late Friday, that she abused her power in pushing for the firing...

Palin skewered Obama for voting "present" while in the Illinois State Senate on a bill that would have required medical care for fetuses that survived abortion. "So in short, Sen.

    In the increasing flurry of this election's negative political ads, the Barack Obama campaign produced a TV commercial that not only attacks Republican rival John McCain, but also takes aim at an unusual target: a 31-year-old woman who was born alive after her mother's botched abortion. Obama's commercial predictably takes shots at the GOP campaign, calling John McCain's ads "the sleaziest ever, truly vile." But when the screen shows clips of abortion survivor Gianna Jessen and the ad she made asking Obama to reverse his stance on born alive infant protection legislation, the Obama ad calls Jessen's appeal "a despicable...

This has produced a hysterical reaction from Team O that pretty much has become a One-Note Charlie when responding to any criticism:

The transcript makes clear Barack Obama opposed the BAIPA not because, as he claimed, it would encroach on abortion rights, but because the law would “burden the original decision of the woman and the physician.” It was too much of a burden, according to Obama, to ensure that a child, born alive, get medical care to sustain the child’s life. Understanding both the timeline of Obama’s votes against the BAIPA and the language of the...

    In the Illinois State Senate, Barack Obama voted against the “Born-Alive Infants Protection Act” (BAIPA) bill twice in committee and once on the Senate floor. The measure was very similar to the federal BAIPA, which President Bush signed into law in 2002. New documents just obtained by NRLC, prove that Senator Obama has for the past four years blatantly misrepresented his actions on the Illinois Born-Alive Infants Protection bill. These facts should give pause to those who have unskeptically accepted Obama's claim that the Illinois BAIPA bills that he opposed in 2001 and 2002, which were modeled on the original...

Both Dr. Tiller and the Suburban headed straight for Wesley Medical Center's emergency room. According to Kansas pro-life activists, trips to Wesley are not uncommon for Dr. Tiller, who normally takes women suffering from abortion complications there. But each trip...

    New details are emerging in the case of Angele, 34, a woman who says she gave birth to a live pre-term baby at a Florida late-term abortion clinic—and that the child died after abortion workers refused to render aid or call for emergency help. WORLD on April 27 obtained transcripts of 911 tapes, plus fire and police department reports on the incident, which occurred April 2 at the EPOC Clinic, an Orlando abortion business owned by late-term specialist James S. Pendergraft. Those documents verify many aspects of Angele's story—and raise serious questions about whether clinic personnel deceived emergency workers when...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Bush administration said Friday that it would enforce a nearly 3-year-old federal law that requires doctors to attempt to keep alive a fetus that survives an abortion. In making the announcement, the Department of Health and Human Services Department said it was an attempt to educate the public about the little-known law. Officials said they didn't know how often a fetus survives an abortion and would not say whether there have been any complaints about a lack of enforcement. "As a matter of law and policy, the (department) will investigate all circumstances where individuals and entities...

    The Bush administration issued guidelines yesterday advising physicians and hospitals that under a 2002 law they are obligated to care for fetuses "born alive" naturally or in the process of an abortion, and medical providers could face penalties for withholding treatment. The law, signed by President Bush nearly three years ago, conferred legal rights on fetuses "at any stage of development." It specifies that a fetus that is breathing, has a beating heart, a pulsating umbilical cord or muscle movement should be considered alive and entitled to protection under federal emergency medical laws and child abuse statutes. Several physicians interviewed...

  • Uncharted waters ("Born alive" bill may pass IL House)

    Almost half of the entire Illinois House has signed up to sponsor an anti-abortion bill this year. The proposal is an exact replica of a federal law that ostensibly protects infants who are “born alive” during botched abortion procedures. Opponents say that the bill is merely a backdoor attempt to ban almost all abortions, but proponents point to the fact that both Hillary Clinton and Ted Kennedy voted for it in the U.S. Senate. The difference, say opponents, is that the federal legislation didn’t trigger any criminal laws, whereas the state bill would tap into a whole host of Illinois...

    Senator Peter Fitzgerald's Chief of Staff was the first to alert us last Thursday night that the President was shortly going to sign the Born Alive Infants Protection Act into law. But that wasn't all the good news. "Wait until you receive official word from the White House before telling anyone," he said. "But our understanding is that you are to be invited to the signing ceremony." After hanging up the phone and screaming, I, of course, ignored his caution and immediately called my husband, children, parents, and close friends to tell them the unbelievable news. And sure enough, the...
