AG Eric Holder: “I don’t know” if DOJ ever enforced Born Alive Act

When Attorney General Eric Holder appeared before the House Judiciary Committee last Wednesday to provide information on a variety of scandals plaguing the Obama administration, he was also questioned about whether he had ever enforced the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act. Holder’s response was the same as it was 56 other times that day: […]

Catholics Ryan and Biden debate abortion

Last night Democrat Joe Biden and Republican Paul Ryan engaged in the one and only vice presidential debate of the 2012 election cycle.

I thought Biden lost hands down, coming across as a snide, rude, condescending, blowharded buffoon, while Ryan appeared presidential and gave measured, polite, substantive responses.

Multiple mistakes about Obama and the Born Alive Act in new book, “The Amateur”

Edward Klein’s unauthorized biography of Barack Obama, The Amateur, was released yesterday.

While I appreciate that Klein devoted a chapter of his book, albeit only three pages, to Obama’s opposition as state senator to the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act, he got it pretty much all wrong. You can read the chapter at the link above, but here is the relevant section:
