Press ignores Obama's radical support of live birth abortion

obama%20mag.jpgBlogger Huckabeespot picked up yesterday on a same day CBS News article portraying Obama as a "midrange issues" politician. Wrote Huckabeespot:

Among many other pieces of evidence that [article author Brian] Montopoli presents for his position is the following:
Obama has been criticized for not taking a stand early in his career on some hot-button issues, including abortion: He voted "present" on abortion questions seven out of 14 times in the state Senate, including once when the issue was a statewide ban on so-called partial-birth abortion.

This makes it appear that Obama's record on abortion is centrist and that he did not try to stop the law banning partial birth abortions....

[But] Obama's record on abortion is much much worse than this would suggest....

The key issue happened when he was a state senator from Illinois. At that time there was a law under consideration which would have made it illegal to kill babies born alive who were supposed to be aborted....

The same law would later be introduced in the U.S. Senate and pass unanimously on a voice vote. Thus, Obama is actually more extreme on his pro-abortion position than NARAL - who did not oppose the law in the U.S. Senate.

This story has been around for a while and was easily discovered. Its hard to believe that a professional writer like Montopoli did not know about the story.

This is true. Just google "Obama abortion" and the facts are easily found. Numerous conservative news organizations have contacted me and written on this. I have written on it until I'm blue in the face. It was the reason for Alan Keyes' famous quote, "Jesus Christ would not vote for Barack Obama."

But MSM is ignoring the fact Obama is so radical on abortion he supports infanticide if it would get in abortion's way.

One reason is MSM is uncomfortable talking details on abortion. It doesn't know the topic and by and large supports abortion in theory.

And of course the other reason is MSM likes Obama.


Comments:

"It doesn't know the topic and by and large supports abortion in theory."

This sentence is supported by their perpetual moronic use of "so-called" in front of partial-birth abortion. These people are insane. How else could you describe the procedure where you partially deliver a living fetus, and then kill it?

I like how the Time cover also makes the subliminal point (with its use of large and small font) that Obama is "the next president".

"..And of course the other reason is MSM likes Obama."

I think it's important for us realize that the overwhemling majority of the MSM is pro-abort themselves (in the mold of FF (laura) or Sally. They probably already know about Obama's dispicable (Born-alive) votes but are trying to hide it to protect him.

Morgan,
I agree!

It always makes me "lol" when I hear pro-aborts complain that Obama's not "pro-choice enough" for them.

MSM doesn't cover abortion because it isn't anyone's business except the woman's. Stay out of it. Obama in 08, and 12...get used to it...prepare your mind right now for a good America.

One more reason he will get my vote if he's the candidate.

"Bleck. I can't even look at his picture."

Get used to it. Someday he'll even be on the $20 bill.

I suppose if your idea of good is unrestricted abortion, legal infanticide, disaster in the Middle East, and the worst economy since Carter, then yeah. It'll be a great ride.

That sounds exactly like what we have now.
(oh, we also trashed the Constitution, ran up gas prices to obscene levels, and want to let Exxon off the hook)

What is different Andy? With Obama, less folks will be dying actually, that will be nice...

We HAVE a disaster in the middle east right NOW thanks to the bungling idiot in the White House. And just what laws regarding abortion do you imagine Obama would 'change' if he did get elected?

that is so funny.

Right, the problem is $20.00 won't be worth anything. Think of Jimmy Carter and the inflation he brought upon the U.S. Remember mortgage interest rates of 18%? My mother-in-law still has her statements to remind herself of that..

I doubt Obama can be blamed if things tank. We're heading that way now.

Posted by: Hal at February 27, 2008 10:42 PM


Hal,
You are consistent in your not wanting to take responsibility.

Posted by: truthseeker at February 27, 2008 11:21 PM


I am willing to give Bush responsibility for high gas prices, a stupid war, ignoring the Constitution, and being repulsive and incompetent. Does that help?

I'm sure Obama will disappoint me in some ways. But I am certainly looking forward to the experience

Posted by: Hal at February 27, 2008 11:25 PM


You are looking forward to getting dissappointed?
Sounds like you could a little more of that Obama Kool-Aid.

Obama is insane.

http://lauraetch.googlepages.com/barackobamabeforeplannedparenthoodaction

I can imagine no greater electoral good in the first decade of the 21st century than taking him down hard and fast.

That this guy taught Constitutional law at all is insane. Making Roe the centerpiece of his pedagogy?

Please.

And if that weren't evil enough, he's an ILLINOIS Democrat. ;-)

Half of Republicans seem to be falling all over themselves to eliminate Hillary from the running, and now it seems that the other half want to knock out Obama. If enough of you cross over to vote in the remaining Democratic primaries, you might just manage to cancel each other out. Meanwhile, who is left to vote for McCain?

Whoops. "I can imagine..." in the above post was also supposed to be in italics, quoting rasqual.
