Obama: Condoning infanticide in the name of protecting the institution of abortion and abortionists

Obama's record on this is clear.

Andrew McCarthy brings us the details.

Key points:

"There wasn’t any question about what was happening. 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. They wouldn’t go along with the program. They wouldn’t just come out limp and dead.

They were coming out alive. Born alive. Babies. Vulnerable human beings Obama, in his detached pomposity, might otherwise include among 'the least of my brothers.' But of course, an abortion extremist can’t very well be invoking Saint Matthew, can he? So, for Obama, the shunning of these least of our brothers and sisters — millions of them — is somehow not among America’s greatest moral failings."


"When it got down to brass tacks, Barack Obama argued that protecting abortion doctors from legal liability was more important than protecting living infants from death."

....and finally:

"Through Obama’s radical prism, everything 'is about abortion and not live births.' But in reality, this had nothing to do with 'burden[ing] the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.' It was about the legal and moral responsibilities of doctors and nurses in circumstances where, despite that decision, a living human being was delivered."

There is NO WAY Obama's de facto support for infanticide can be rationalized, excused, or explained away.
