I received an email from my mom today at work with the following information. She was referring this back to a conversation we had had about a Christian author Donald Miller's support for Barack Obama. Miller pointed out in his blog (http://donmilleris.com/2008/10/03/on-the-campaign-trail-in-mi-in-nc-va-and-oh-this-week/) that one of his main reasons for supporting Obama was his abortion stance. He said that Obama's plan was better than John McCain's "empty promise" on abortion. (He probably should have done a little more research before throwing that out that.) But if the following information is Obama's abortion stance, I think we all need to take a look at our morals and let it come down to right and wrong. You can decide for yourself.
In 1999 a gruesome discovery was made that an Illinois hospital was shelving babies to die in a soiled utility room who had survived their abortions.
The Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act was introduced in 2001 to provide legal protection to all born babies, wanted or not, including the right to medical care.
Then-state Senator Barack Obama voted against Born Alive 4 times in 3 years and was the sole senator to speak against it on the Senate floor in 2001 and 2002.
In 2002, the Federal version of Born Alive passed unanimously in the US Senate and by overwhelming voice vote in the House. The pro-abortion group NARAL even went neutral on the bill.
But In 2003, Barack Obama voted against the identical version of Born Alive in Illinois. Then, for the next 4 years he repeatedly misrepresented his vote until it was recently discovered in the IL General Assembly archives.
