See previous post, “Undecided Swing-State Voters “Repelled” When They Learn of Obama’s “Born-Alive” Vote“
Obama voted NO on the Born Alive Protection Act, which would have mandated care for children who were delivered after an unsuccessful late-term abortion.
In 2008, the mainstream media failed to vet Barack Obama. Some bloggers tried to highlight his record but it wasn’t enough to push the most damaging information into the Koolaid-drunken mainstream. The MSM in 2012 is still in creepy lockdown when it comes to vetting Obama but the alternative Media is stepping up. The Daily Caller is publishing a series called “The Jack Ryan Files” in which Obama’s record in the Illinois state senate is reviewed.
If voters in 2008 had been informed of Obama’s radical pro-abortion voting record, it could have severely damaged his candidacy. Let’s make sure these key swing-state voters know about it this time. We have 5 weeks to accomplish that. Via the Caller:
Perhaps Obama’s best-known and most controversial votes during his time in the state Senate were the ones he cast against the Infant Born Alive Protection Act, which would have mandated care for children who were delivered after an unsuccessful late-term abortion.
At the time, Obama argued that the bill was unconstitutional and would serve to undercut the Roe v. Wade decision, and questioned whether hospitals were actually allowing infants to die after failed abortions. He voted “present” on the legislation and changed his vote to “no” the following year.
Obama also voted “present” — and then, later, “no” — on bills that would have outlawed so-called “partial-birth” abortions in Illinois unless the life of the mother was threatened, and “no” on two bills that would have prohibited the use of state funds to pay for abortions. He voted “present” on a parental-notification law for minors seeking abortions.
