Mass shootings on rise since Roe v. Wade: Planned Parenthood as the NRA of Abortion?
By Jeffrey Lord

Much quoted is this statement from the President on Friday:
We’re going to have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics.
And then the Obama line mentioned above, which he made in his Sunday night speech at Newtown. This one:
We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change.
Let’s recall that it was Illinois State Senator Obama, when dealing with a state version of the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, who voted that it was OK by him if babies who emerged alive from their mother after a failed attempt at abortion should be left to die. Or, as, State Senator Obama described them at the time, “that fetus, or child — however you want to describe it.”
Andy McCarthy over at National Review (a different McCarthy altogether than the congresswoman with the same last name) recounts this episode involving a nurse named Jill Stanek, who testified to the Illinois State Senate and State Senator Obama, as follows:
Infanticide is a bracing word. But in this context, it’s the only word that fits. Obama heard the testimony of a nurse, Jill Stanek. She recounted how she’d spent 45 minutes holding a living baby left to die.
The child had lacked the good grace to expire as planned in an induced-labor abortion — one in which an abortionist artificially induces labor with the expectation that the underdeveloped “fetus, or child — however you want to describe it” will not survive the delivery.
Stanek encountered another nurse carrying the child to a “soiled utility room” where it would be left to die. It wasn’t that unusual. The induced-labor method was used for late-term abortions. Many of the babies were strong enough to survive the delivery. At least for a time.
So something had to be done with them. They couldn’t be left out in the open, struggling in the presence of fellow human beings. After all, those fellow human beings — health-care providers — would then be forced to confront the inconvenient question of why they were standing idly by. That would hold a mirror up to the whole grisly business.
Better the utility room. Alone, out of sight and out of mind. Next case.
Quite literally, then- State Senator Obama was face to face with a true story of a living baby being “discarded as trash.” The man who shed tears for the children of Newtown could find none for those babies born alive after failed abortions — and signed on to let them be, quite literally, discarded as trash. These children were disposable.
The Newtown mass murders — and the Obama “we must change” speech have, ironically, forced an unwanted spotlight on a key Obama political ally.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
