This is a heart-wrenching film, maybe even a little over the top. It's a good idea to watch if you are under the misconceived notion that Barak Obama is the right choice for president or that abortion should be legal (aka the woman's right to choose).
The Born Alive Infant Protection Act was passed and signed into law by President Bush on August 5, 2002.
In Illinois, when the bill was trying to be passed through the state legislature it kept coming up against a committee on which Obama was the leader. Dancing around the issue with his two-faced answers (which are STILL typical of him), Obama refused to even bring the bill to vote.
"“What we are doing here is to create one more burden on women, and I can’t support that,” Obama concluded, and voted “no” in committee again."
What?! One more burden on women??? Ummmmm...need I say more?
Oh wait, here is one more quote from Obama:
"If I am opposed to abortion for religious reasons but seek to pass a law banning the practice, I cannot simply point to the teachings of my church. I have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all."
