Over the last week or so I have had several opportunities to tell people about Barack Obama’s opposition to the Born Alive legislation in Illinois which would have required medical assistance to babies that survive the abortion procedure. Without exception, each of these individuals was unaware of the issue.
It would be one thing if people were aware of this but dismissed it or factored it in- or even the unthinkable: they approve of it- but to not even be aware? This I think is the fault of the ‘average American’ and his level of investigation into candidates and claims and the Media’s failure to do its duties impartially and exhaustively.
In the cases I mentioned there was one where they proposed that perhaps it was rare and perhaps Obama was right that existing law covered it so why go the additional step?
I turned up this ‘sting’ operation on Planned Parenthood where the nurse admits that survivals continue to happen and whatever ‘existing law’ might ‘cover’ such situations, it isn’t being enforced. Decide for yourself if you want a president who will oppose such legislation with such clear moral weight behind it.
