Kerry Picket at The Washington Times puts together all the evidence, in one place, proving that Barack Obama worked really hard in Illinois to support infanticide. Great reporting.
Here is part of Obama’s testimony at the time:
Unfortunately, this bill goes a little bit further so I just want to suggest, not that I think it’ll make too much difference with respect to how we vote, that this is probably not going to survive constitutional scrutiny. Number one, whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that we would be provided to a – – a child, a nine-month-old – – child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it – – it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute.
Note: Obama was talking about children who the doctors had tried to abort, but who came out still alive and breathing, in the open air. Such children are not by any definition mere fetuses. They are children. Yet he would allow them to be killed, at least by deliberate neglect. What a monster.
