Obama - I Knew There Was A Reason I Didn't Trust This Guy!

View the video here at RedStater.

One of the most appalling things in regards to our current President is that he voted against the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act THREE times!

What is BAIPA? It gives a baby that is born alive after a FAILED ABORTION attempt protection under the law.

Voting against this law in my opinion basically just tells me that the guy doesn't like babies. How can a person fully trust a guy that is okay with letting a live baby die?

I can't.


  1. Born-Alive Infants Protection Act THREE times!-----------
    Where does it say he did this? or are you just taking whacko right wing
    word for it.

  2. Here are the top 10 reasons Obama voted against the Born Alive Protection act...

    Born Alive

  3. skye, c'mon. if you have ever read my blog before you should know by now that I don't ANYBODY'S word for anything.

  4. Skye... here is a link to the complete rundown on Obama's votes, the bills, the commitee's, and the cover up concerning post-birth abortions and babies accidentally surviving abortions.

    But you don't have to take my "whacko rightwing" word for it... you can see for yourself.

  5. I read it all the time,Otter. Mostly what I was asking for was a credible source for your info.

    Red, the National right to life site isn't what I would call credible.

  6. Ohhh skye..
    SO, instead of looking at his voting record and proving the Illinois review article wrong (and risk being wrong yourself) you attack the messenger. Classic stuff I gotta give it to ya'.

    You seem surprised that the "abortion President" actually supports abortions... "the willing suspension of disbelief"?

    But of course we all know how He (Obama) would like to reduce the number of abortions... but He can't because of those pesky conservatives .... you know, the ones who oppose abortions in the first place.

  8. A package of Born Alive bills was introduced three times during Obama's tenure.

    The cornerstone bill was the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, aka "Born Alive Infant Defined," which defined legal personhood to include born alive infants any time the words "person," "human being," "child," or "individual" was stated in IL law.

    This definition was identical to the federal BAIPA which was drafted from the definition of "live birth" created by the World Health Organization in 1950 and adopted by the United Nations in 1955.

    Following are Obama's actions and votes on Born Alive. The bill number changed every year it was reintroduced.

    Obama's "no" vote on the IL Senate floor, April 4, 2002

    Listen to audio from Obama's 2002 IL Senate floor debate wherein he argued that while babies might be aborted alive, it would be a "burden" to a mother's "original decision" to assess and treat them.

    Meanwhile, the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act with a "neutrality clause" added passed the U.S. Senate 98-0, the U.S. House overwhelmingly, and was signed into law August 5, 2002. The pro-abortion group NARAL expressed neutrality on the bill.


    Senate Bill 1082, Born Alive Infant Protection Act

    Democrats took control of the IL Senate with the 2002 elections. This year Born Alive was sent to the Health & Human Services Committee, chaired by Barack Obama.

    As can be seen on the vote docket, Obama first voted to amend SB1082 to add the "neutrality clause" from the federal version of Born Alive to the IL version to make them absolutely identical. (DP#1 means "Do Pass Amendment #1.)

    Then Obama voted against the identical version. (DPA means, "Do Pass as Amended.)

    Additional corroboration of Obama's vote: IL State Senate Republican Staff Analysis of SB 1082, March 12-13, 2003, bottom of page 2

    For 4 years following his 2003 vote Obama misrepresented it, stating the wording of the IL version of Born Alive was not the same as the federal version, and he would have voted for it if so. As recently as August 16, 2008 Obama made this false assertion.

    But when evidence presented was irrefutable, Obama's campaign on August 18, 2008, admitted the truth to the New York Sun.

    The nonpartison group has since corroborated Obama voted against identical legislation as passed overwhelmingly on the federal level.
