Some may be scandalized by comparing the unsavory actions of abortionist Kermit Gosnell and President Barack Obama. Yet the facts hold out that as a legislator in the Illinois Senate, Mr. Obama twice opposed the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act.
In 2008, Presidential Candidate Obama lashed out against "liars" when his legislative positions were questioned. He issued a statement that he was deeply insulted and offended as the proud father of two girls that he was in favor of infanticide. Even the Washington Post would award Mr. Obama four pinocchios for this misleading statement, as Obama was impeached on a Christian Broadcasting Network video, but that was so four years ago.
But listen to the legislative colloquy that then State Senator Obama had on the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act.
That if that fetus, or child, however you want to describe it, is now outside of the mother's womb and the doctor continues to think that it's non viable but there's lets say movement or some indication that they're not just coming out limp and dead that in fact they would then have to call in a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved?
The salient point is that the requirement to have a second physician on call was an undue burden that would inhibit access to an abortion. Furthermore, Mr. Obama dismisses the notion that physicians would not attend to mistakes and have a fetus outside of the mother's womb that was viable.
Consider the gory facts exposed in the Gosnell capital murder case in Philadelphia. Abortionist Gosnell's special technique, which he instructed other unlicensed staff in his office to also perform, was to snip the spinal cord of a just born-alive child in an illegal late term abortion so that it "ensured fetal demise". Does that give Mr. Obama some cause for pause?
Mr. Obama's contradictory comments make as much sense as when President Obama recently said "God Bless Planned Parenthood" to a conference of the nation's largest abortion and "family planning" providers.
The media continues to ignore the inconsistencies in Obama's extreme abortion stance as well as the details of the Kermit Gosnell trial because facts challenging their secular shibboleths exposes the hypocrisy of doing everything "for the children" and exposes the callousness of their "choices". And to add insult to mortal injury, both Gosnell and Mr. Obama justify their actions to help the poor and marginalized, with little regard for the law, ethics, or the ultimate consequences.
