Obama Lied, Babies Died

Obama again lied in the third and final Presidential debate last night.
He lied about many things, in particular I’d like to point out in this posting that he lied about his vote in the Judiciary Committee while an Illinois State Senator.

I am speaking of his vote against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act which simply would have provided for life saving actions to be taken when a child was born alive after a failed abortion.

From WND:

In a column today, she [Jill Stanek] asserts that last night, in the third and final debate with GOP rival Sen. John McCain, Obama “obfuscated his radical record of abandoning abortion survivors to die in hospital soiled utility rooms.”

The subject was raised by McCain.

Sen. Obama, as a member of the Illinois State Senate, voted in the Judiciary Committee against a law that would provide immediate medical attention to a child born of a failed abortion. He voted against that,” the GOP senator said.

Obama responded, arguing the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which he opposed, “said you have to provide lifesaving treatment and that would have helped to undermine Roe v. Wade.”

“LIE,” writes Stanek. “BAIPA simply stated all born alive babies became legally protected persons immediately upon birth, no matter what gestational age and no matter if unwanted abortion survivors.”

Continues Stanek, “Obama further obfuscated his radical record of abandoning abortion survivors to die in hospital soiled utility rooms by adding ‘there was already a law on the books in Illinois that required providing lifesaving treatment. …’

“LIE,” Stanek writes. “Illinois abortion law to this day only protects abortion survivors their abortionist deems fit to live. The potential for subjective assessments in these cases is clear to all but Obama. In fact, Obama opposed closing this loophole by voting against legislation to mandate a second doctor be present at deliveries of all live abortion survivors to independently assess their viability.”

She notes Obama not only opposed the state’s proposed protection for infants, “he took a leadership role to kill it. His website still contains an ABC News quote from the Illinois Planned Parenthood CEO at the time stating ‘Obama approached her’ to strategize to defeat BAIPA as well as the Partial Birth Abortion Ban. Barack Obama actually sought out PP to help him defeat a bill protecting abortion survivors.”
