Barack Obama is so pro-abortion, when he was an Illinois state senator, he fought against passage of a bill to protect the lives of babies that were born alive, despite attempts to abort them.
In other words, someone tried to kill them in the womb, and failed, and the child still managed to survive, only to be left to die with no care or support after being born…and Obama thought this was a procedure worth fighting for.
In 2000, the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA) was first introduced in Congress. This was a two-paragraph bill intended to clarify that any baby who is entirely expelled from his or her mother, and who shows any signs of life, is to be regarded as a legal “person” for all federal law purposes, whether or not the baby was born during an attempted abortion. (To view the original 2000 BAIPA, http://www.nrlc.org/ObamaBAIPA/OriginalFederalBAIPA2000HR429…)
In 2002, the bill was enacted, after a “neutrality clause” was added to explicitly state that the bill expressed no judgment, in either direction, about the legal status of a human prior to live birth. The bill passed without a dissenting vote in either house of Congress. (To view the final federal BAIPA as enacted, http://www.nrlc.org/ObamaBAIPA/BAIPAFederal.pdf)
In 2003, Obama fought against an attempt to pass similar legislation for the state of Illinois:
Douglas Johnson, NRLC spokesman, explains: “Newly obtained documents prove that in 2003, Barack Obama, as chairman of an Illinois state Senate committee, voted down a bill to protect live-born survivors of abortion – even after the panel had amended the bill to contain verbatim language…explicitly foreclosing any impact on abortion.”
So just what kind of procedure are we talking about?
From another LifeSiteNews piece, nurse Jill Stanek describes what happens to the babies who are killed after being born alive:
Jill Stanek was a nurse at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois in 1999 when she discovered that babies born alive after failed abortions purposely were being left to die in the “soiled utility room,” which, says Stanek, is a room where biohazard materials and soiled linens are disposed of.
“That’s where nursing staff took these babies and left them to die.”
“Christ hospital – and we now know other hospitals and clinics around the country – are involved in an abortion procedure called ‘induced labor abortion,'” says Stanek in the video, entitled “Kill and Destroy”. In this type of abortion, she says, the abortionist inserts a medication into the birth canal of the mother and induces premature labor.
“My experience was that they [the babies] survive as short as a few minutes, to once, almost as long as an eight hour shift.
“To be clear these were living babies who were left out to die. And they were issued both birth and death certificates according to Illinois state law.”
Stanek relates the story of how one night she saw a nurse bringing a baby to the soiled utility room to die, because the parents of the child did not want to hold it. The other nurse also did not have the time to hold the child. “When she told me what she was doing I couldn’t bear the thought of this suffering child dying alone,” says Stanek. “And so I cradled and rocked him for the forty-five minutes that he lived.”
Can you get your mind around a practice like this going on in a place called “Christ Hospital”?
Here is a video of Stanek telling about this procedure, with a dramatization of nurses leaving a newborn child to die on a table in a storeroom.
“Kill and Destroy” Synopsis:
Featuring an interview with Jill Stanek, “Kill and Destroy” explores Barack Hussein Obama’s support of infanticide in Illinois, an alarming decision that was opposed by every Democrat and Republican in the U.S. Senate.
“What does it take to make a man a monster any more?” Illuminati Pictures president Molotov Mitchell recently wrote. “If Americans can watch this video and still support Barack Obama, then America is…beyond all hope.”
I don’t know about you, but when I heard Stanek tell about the cold-hearted deaths of these children, I felt a heavy chill. I spent several years in law enforcement, so I’ve seen some pretty cold, heartless behavior; still, this left me moved in a heart-wrenching way.
How even the most strident abortion advocate can defend a practice like this still claim to retain a measure of humanity is beyond my ability to comprehend.
And millions of Americans are considering electing such a man President of the United States…
