“Abortion militancy you can believe in?” Uh, no.
Newly obtained documents prove that in 2003, Barack Obama, as chairman of an IL state Senate committee, voted down a bill to protect live-born survivors of abortion – even after the panel had amended the bill to contain verbatim language, copied from a federal bill passed by Congress without objection in 2002, explicitly foreclosing any impact on abortion. Obama’s legislative actions in 2003 – denying effective protection even to babies born alive during abortions – were contrary to the position taken on the same language by even the most liberal members of Congress. The bill Obama killed was virtually identical to the federal bill that even NARAL ultimately did not oppose.
Okay. Did you catch that part in the last half? If the baby survives a botched abortion, Obama pressed on to go ahead and have another go at them, something “even the most liberal members of Congress” didn’t support.
Hmmmm? So, just how pro-life are the Democrats, as ABC seems to insinuate, with their convention around the corner?
