The Obama Abortion Live-Birth Matrix
Obama is the full-service abortion candidate.
Abortion from conception to birth
Abortion at partial birth
Abortion after birth
Obama aggressively demands that some babies born alive be left to die. Obama does not support any Born Alive Infant Legislation. Amanda B. Carpenter writes in Human Events, Obama More Pro-Choice Than NARAL where Obama spoke out against the legislation similar to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act,
Sen. Barack Obama (D.-Ill.) portrays himself as a thoughtful Democrat who carefully considers both sides of controversial issues, but his radical stance on abortion puts him further left on that issue than even NARAL Pro-Choice America.
In 2002, as an Illinois legislator, Obama voted against the Induced Infant Liability Act, which would have protected babies that survived late-term abortions. That same year a similar federal law, the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, was signed by President Bush. Only 15 members of the U.S. House opposed it, and it passed the Senate unanimously on a voice vote.
Both the Illinois and the federal bill sought equal treatment for babies who survived premature inducement for the purpose of abortion and wanted babies who were born prematurely and given live-saving medical attention.
Here is what Obama has said about abortion and judges he would appoint,
Thirty-five years after the Supreme Court decided Roe v. Wade, it’s never been more important to protect a woman’s right to choose. Last year, the Supreme Court decided by a vote of 5-4 to uphold the Federal Abortion Ban, and in doing so undermined an important principle of Roe v. Wade: that we must always protect women’s health.
With one more vacancy on the Supreme Court, we could be looking at a majority hostile to a women’s fundamental right to choose for the first time since Roe v. Wade. The next president may be asked to nominate that Supreme Court justice. That is what is at stake in this election.
Throughout my career, I’ve been a consistent and strong supporter of reproductive justice, and have consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America.
When South Dakota passed a law banning all abortions in a direct effort to have Roe overruled, I was the only candidate for President to raise money to help the citizens of South Dakota repeal that law.
When anti-choice protesters blocked the opening of an Illinois Planned Parenthood clinic in a community where affordable health care is in short supply, I was the only candidate for President who spoke out against it. And I will continue to defend this right by passing the Freedom of Choice Act as president.”
Obama is not the candidate of change.
Charmaine says, “It’s all about women’s perceived power — the power a woman has over her fate, her future, her convenience.”
The mother-feminist even wants control of life and death: The ultimate power.
The power-hungry feminist does not choose life for her baby. The pro-choice, abortion-option movement is the desire to have the power of life and death.”
Obama believes that feminist power over the baby is more important than the life of the baby.
Obama claims to support a woman’s health, but what he is demanding is the woman’s power over life and death.

Gary Bauer pointed us to the Barack Obama speech.
Tom McMahon may not the originator of the 2 X 2 matrix, but no one does them better. Enjoy his intellectual property at the 4-Blockworld. Free! It takes hard work to make complicated subjects so simple. Bookmark him.
Tom provides us perhaps the real reason women will vote for John McCain: Who can keep us safe in our current war?
A New Report Indicates Voters Most Interested in Barack Obama’s Position on Abortion
The Internet traffic monitoring firm HitWise indicates abortion is now the number one political issue voters are looking for when they conduct a search on Obama’s campaign web site.
Obama Should Embrace His [Pro-Life] Muslim Heritage,
As a great leader, Mr. Obama should take a principled stand on the issue of Muslims and Islamophobia. While anti-Muslim sentiment in the U.S. is substantial, it is not an insurmountable challenge.
The vast majority of Americans are sincere and open-minded; anti-Muslim sentiments are a product of fear and lack of understanding. These sentiments can be overcome.
From an article in the The Wall Street Journal by Mr. Junaid M. Afeef, director of public and government Affairs at the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago.

I was originally a Hillary supporter and still hope that the DNC will put her name back in the nomination. After Cynthia MCKinney jumped into the race, I was excited about her candidacy, but after I found out she was on of the 15 who voted against the Protection for Live Births in 2000, I became very disappointed in her.
Dr. White, it is always a good idea to vote to for the right to life.
I believe women should have the right to choose. However they should do so responsibly and not use abortion as a method of birth control. I also believe that once a baby is born, that baby has a right to live and should be protected. Just as every human life should be protected. Babies should not have to suffer or be left to die. Children are the future.
What does it say about us as a nation and as human beings if we will not even stand up to protect our children.
No child is truely unwanted. There are many people in this world that would love to adopt. Give them a chance.
Karen, I believe you are right that a baby should not suffer or be left to die.
But why should a mother have the power of life or death over her baby? If the (unborn) baby has no rights, why shouldn’t abortion be a method of birth control?
What difference does it make if abortion is rare? if abortion is no big deal.
And if abortion is a big deal then what’s the big deal about?
Could it be that every mother knows that she has a baby in her belly? A person?
Killing a baby does not empower a woman.
Thank you for commenting,
Do you acually think voting for McCain over Obama will make a difference? They are both politicans and like Obi Wan said to Anakin, you can not trust any of them. Trust God (The Force)
Rev. Dess, Yes, voting for McCain will make a (pro-life) difference. Your Business Blogger(R) served a tour of duty for Governor Gilmore in Virginia and one of the most valuable lessons that I learned was that elected officials will fulfill thier campaing promises.
The campaign was where the politicians’ priorities were promoted and used to sell the man and his motions.
The best men kept thier word. McCain has a track record of keeping his word. Obama doesn’t have much of a record. But what we do know is that Obama has promised to keep abortion alive. (Forgive the mixed metaphor…)
McCain has promised to install a pro-life administration. Remember, the best indication of future performance is past performance. McCain can be trusted. He proved that in Hanoi.
Obama, oddly, can also be trusted. He proved that in Chicago…with Planned Parenthood.
A man’s motive can be seen in his highest value: Life for McCain. Abortion for Obama.
This is the difference.
Thank you for commenting, Rev. Dess
So Obama DOES support 4th trimester abortion after all?
If Obama wasn’t on MTV/VH1 24/7 then there would of been no chance that he would of won! Young voters are mindless and just base their decision on whoever the hottest celeb is voting for! Anyone for partial/live abortion is someone I would NOT vote for! You need to base your vote on your bibical beliefs – abortion and gay marriage is against God’s word. Praise God I have a Bible centered church! May God help us these next 4 years!
