In 2001, then IL state Sen. Barack Obama, for the 2nd year in a row, was the sole person opposing Born Alive Infant bills on the state senate floor.
Audio of senate floor debates is destroyed when transcripts are written. Until now, only the Chicago Tribune was known to have audio of this debate but had only released a very small clip.
But we now have it. A reader requesting anonymity sent it to me. Thanks to moderator Chris for making a YouTube video, accentuating Obama’s talking points and irrationality…
In the audio, Obama argues against calling for a 2nd physician if the 1st physician – the abortionist – has decided the baby s/he has just aborted alive is non-viable….
Most would recognize the potential for subjective opinion in this case. The abortionist has been paid to kill the baby, and a live birth would indicate s/he botched.
In addition, these babies are often being aborted because the abortionist has stated they are handicapped. A living baby could be evidence the abortionist made a wrong diagnosis.
Barack Obama, a self-professed champion of the little guy and opponent of bullies, in this case argued in favor of trusting the abortionist. The reasons for Obama’s trust in the abortion industry are obvious. It gives him $$ and gets him votes. For instance, the abortion lobby, in 2008, promised to spend $30 MILLION for their candidates.
In this audio, Obama utters these infamous words, among many:
“… if that fetus or child – however way you want to describe it – is now outside the mother’s womb….”
“… but there’s, let’s say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead….”
