obama.jpgYou would have a difficult time figuring out Barack Obama supports infanticide by the Associated Press story yesterday entitled, “Obama Record May Be Gold Mine For Critics.”
Each of five times the AP referred to Obama’s votes as state Senator to allow infanticide to continue in Illinois, it softened the blow to make it unintelligible to the fetus on the street. Yes, the AP’s use of “fetus” in its story was as incorrect and ridiculous as that.
Any dictionary defines “fetus” as “an unborn or unhatched vertebrate… a developing human from usually three months after conception to birth.”
And it’s not as if the English language isn’t rich with terminology to properly describe the human after birth – neonate, newborn, baby, infant, or child, to name five.
But the AP couldn’t admit abortion has extended to killing born children in the U.S.:

[Obama] voted against requiring medical care for aborted fetuses who survive….
One vote that especially riled abortion opponents involved restrictions on a type of abortion where the fetus sometimes survives, occasionally for hours. The restrictions, which never became law, included requiring the presence of a second doctor to care for the fetus….
Abortion opponents see Obama’s vote on medical care for aborted fetuses as a refusal to protect the helpless. Some have even accused him of supporting infanticide….
Obama – who joined several other Democrats in voting “present” in 2001 and “no” the next year – argued the legislation was worded in a way that unconstitutionally threatened a woman’s right to abortion by defining the fetus as a child.

Such a ridiculous claim, one that the World Health Organization in 1950, the United Nations in 1955, and the U.S. Congress and president in 2002 all fell for when adapting identical language to define nonfetushood.
But not Obama or the AP, both smarter than the rest of the world, modernday Renaissance fetuses.
