    We have passed the point where Nazi comparisons are inappropriate. In the latest video about Planned Parenthood, if you want to watch it, you will see an admission that some of the children are born alive before being killed and carved up — their bodies being sold essentially for scrap. These are children. They entered into the world alive and were killed, chopped up, and sold bit by bit. “It’s a boy,” one person commented in the latest film. They talk about the commoditization of children’s eyeballs (the ones in the video were not developed enough), hearts that turn to...

    Marleen Goldstein worked in a hospital that performed abortions. After 30 years, she’s come forward with her story. According to Goldstein: My husband was a resident at a hospital and I just got “the job of my dreams” at a nearby Oakland hospital. I was very much a believer in the abortion issue and now I felt I was going to be part of it. I got hired as a charge nurse at this clinic that did late term abortions. I spent about 30 days on the day shift getting familiar with everything. I would witness and assist the doctor...

    Murdered in 2009 by anti-abortion fanatic Scott Roeder, Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller has since been immortalized by pro-aborts as a rhetorical cudgel to slander peaceful pro-life Americans as condoning and enabling violence (a standard they would naturally take great umbrage at if pro-lifers blamed their entire movement for violence committed by individuals on their side).Salon’s Katie McDonough interviewed abortionist Cheryl Chastine, the current medical director of Tiller’s former clinic, about “honor[ing] his memory by providing fearless care for Kansans”:On pro-life laws requiring Chastine to give her patients “information that is intended to mislead them”: It feels like there’s a...

Undeniable reports of doctors strangling, drowning and suffocating infants who just “won’t die”. Photos of tiny, still children, with skin the undeniable pink of a human being who had shortly before had a heartbeat. Most of these stories occurred prior to the passage...

The abortions were going wrong. The babies weren't cooperating. They wouldn't die as planned. Or, as Illinois state senator Barack Obama so touchingly put it, there was "movement or some indication that, in fact, they're not just coming out limp and dead." No, Senator.

    The miraculous inner strength and will to live is so strong with some babies that even despite attempts to abort them, they survive – born into the world, umbilical cord cut… breathing on their own. Only a few years ago, these children could be left to die – murdered after birth. The President opposed legislation that would protect their lives. Obama - who today won the Nobel Peace Prize – while a Senator in Chicago, blocked the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. The Act eventually passed in Illinois despite Obama’s opposition.

    I've been dreading writing about the Born Alive bill, the legislation Obama opposed in the Illinois related to babies who are accidentally born, alive, during abortions. I have a swirl of mixed emotions and thoughts, and realize that collectively they will offend nearly everyone. Here goes: Obama has lied or dissembled on parts of the controversy. He's claimed that he opposed the Born Alive bill in the Illinois legislature because it lacked a particular protection for Roe v. Wade. When the Right to Life committee rebutted him on that, he called them liars. The Right to Life committee was correct....

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...

Instead, it's based on a true account of a woman who sought a late-term abortion but found herself living a nightmare. In the 25-minute featurette, Angela, played by Natalie Wenninger, wakes up in her motel room covered in blood. She rushes to the clinic where she had been injected with a needle the day before to abort her baby 22 weeks into her pregnancy. She’s bleeding profusely and is having contractions but is left alone in a dirty room at the clinic....

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.

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...

    Editorial Note: People forget this issue came up more than once in Illinois. In 2001, Obama was concerned about abortion rights and the impact the Born Alive Infant Protection Act would have on abortion rights. In 2002, those concerns were addressed and fixed in the legislation. Now Obama's concerns were more clear. His views on life had no where else to hide. What has Barack Obama said about his opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act? Obama has made several points, which we should recount.

    E ver wonder how Barack Obama, the great healer, ended up with a more radical record on abortion than Sen. Hillary Clinton or even the zealots at NARAL Pro-Choice America? It comes down to the "Born-Alive Infants Protection Act." The bill was designed to provide legal protection for babies born alive during an abortion. Babies like the ones ex-nurse Jill Stanek saw discarded and left for dead at her hospital. The experience moved her to push for "Born Alive" legislation in Illinois, but Obama voted against the legislation -- three times. Congress passed the federal "Born Alive" bill in 2002...

    Who's really lying about abortion bill's language? Ever wonder how Barack Obama, the great healer, ended up with a more radical record on abortion than Sen.

    'The doctor continues to think that it's nonviable but there's, let's say, movement..' Dear McCain campaign, Please spotlight these comments from Barack Obama about the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. [In the following transcription, I've cleaned up the sentences a bit; the actual transcript begins on page 31 here.] Senator Obama: Can you just describe for me, under this legislation, what's going to be required for a doctor to meet the requirements that you've set forth? Senator O'Malley: First of all, there is established, under this legislation, that a child born under these circumstances would recieve all reasonable measures consistent...

    (it starts on page 31) from what I can tell, it is obvious what the intent of the bill is. I find the "fetus, or child - however way you want to describe it" quip kind of PATHETIC. also here is mp3 audio of Obama talking about the act.

    Barack Obama, his surrogates and minions in the media have repeatedly claimed that it would defy logic for him to have opposed medical treatment for newborn infants even those who had survived abortion attempts. He called NRLC liars and was offended that people would suggest that he, a father of two, would suggest such a ridiculous and cruel thing. Now hear the truth. Listen to Senator Obama in his own words as he argues against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act in the Illinois State Legislature and states that two doctors helping a baby born alive after a botched abortion...

    In this audio Obama coldly claims two doctors helping a baby born alive after a botched abortion would be a burden for the aborting mother when he is arguing against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act at the Illinois state legislature April 2002. Obama doesn’t care about the baby getting the medical attention, just whether or not the aborting mother is burdened.

    NRO's The Corner ^ | 8/20/2008 | Peter Wehner
    If you want to understand just how potent the issue of abortion can be in this campaign, take a look at this segment from Hannity & Colmes last night. Sean Hannity laid out for Bob Beckel — in a specific, careful, calm way — the fact that Barack Obama opposed legislation protecting children who had survived an abortion attempt. (For more on this issue, go here, here, and here). In response, Beckel’s head began to explode. Beckel seemed quite unfamiliar with the specifics of the issue (for example, he asserted existing Illinois law protected children who survived an abortion attempt,...
