Obama Supports Infanticide

with one comment

It is THE HARD TRUTH that U.S. Senator Barack Hussein Obama has proven himself to be a supporter of infanticide, the practice of killing newborn infants.

The Senator’s voting record in the Illinois State Senate bears this out according to the Catholic News Agency (CNA).

On July 4, 2008, in an article on the CNA’s web site, Deal Hudson charges Obama with supporting infanticide due to his opposition to the Born Alive Infant’s Protection Act (BAIPA) which was introduced in the Illinois Legislature in 2001 after Nurse Jill Stanek testified that newborn babies who were born alive after abortion attempts at Christ Hospital were left to die without attention from medical personnel. The BAIPA,opposed by Obama, would have required that any baby that was expelled from his or her mother and showed any signs of life was to be regarded as a legal person whether or not the baby was born during an attempted abortion.

Stanek testified before the Illinois Senate’s Judiciary Committee, on which then Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama sat. Obama voted against allowing the bill to go to the full Senate for a vote, but it passed out of the Committee and when the full Senate voted on the bill Obama voted “present”, not taking a stand one way or the other. The Bible, in Revelation 3:15-16 quotes Jesus as saying: “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot, I would thou wert cold or hot. so then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold not hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.”

In 2002 the BAIPA was again introduced in the Illinois Legislature where Obama not only again voted no, but led the opposition to the bill and was the only Senator to actually speak out against it’s passage and the bill again failed to pass.

In 2003 the Senate Health & Human Services Committee was Chaired by Obama when the BAIPA was brought for a hearing. Chairman Obama refused to allow the bill to be brought up for a vote thus denying the BAIPA to reach the Senate floor for a vote.

It wasn’t until 2005, after Obama had moved on to the US Senate, that the Illinois Legislature passed the BAIPA.

The BAIPA that was adopted by the Illinois Legislature is identical to the Federal  BAIPA that was approved in 2002 with no opposition, from even the most liberal left-wingers. Yet Obama voted no on the bill on multiple  occasions. Yes, that ‘s right, even Ted Kennedy supported the BAIPA, but Obama did not.

Perhaps Obama should become more familiar with St. Matthew 18:6 wherein Jesus is quoted as saying “…whoso  shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
