Four years ago, I wrote a series of articles on Barack Obama's opposition to legislation that would make it illegal to kill a baby after he is born. Now, LifeNews.com reports on new audio that has surfaced of Obama arguing against this legislation - essentially arguing against making infanticide illegal.
See here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here for those articles.
Outside of the pro-life community, this issue got very little discussion, and the McCain campaign would not touch it. But it is every bit as relevant now as it was four years ago, especially in light of Obama's mandate that employers provide contraception and birth control - including abortifacient drugs - to employees even if the employer has a religious objection to birth control, contraception or abortion.
As a side note, birth control and contraception are not the same, which is why I listed them separately. Contraception prevents the fertilization of an egg - it prevents a new person from being created at all. Birth control is a different matter, especially since even Planned Parenthood has admitted that the birth control pill can prevent implantation of a fertilized egg. If life begins at fertilization (and there is no other place where it could begin) this is unacceptable.
The last Democrat who served as President, Bill Clinton, was so extreme that he vetoed the ban on partial-birth abortion. We did not get a federal ban on this barbaric procedure until after George W. Bush took office. President Obama is even more extreme, even opposing efforts to protect babies that survive abortion and are born alive. It is absolutely critical that Obama is defeated in November.
