Bearing False Witness

I'm listening to the presidential debate at the moment. I just finished listening ot their views on Roe V Wade. McCain actually brought up the fact that as a state senator of Illinois, Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which would require medical care, and legal "personage" to infants that survive a botched abortion. Obama replied that it was because BAIPA would be used as a tool to undermine the 'right' to choose, because there was no language in the bill to protect it. Check this and this out from Lifesite:

"The former nurse of Christ Hospital also dispels the myth, propagated by Obama and his campaign, that Obama only voted against the bill because it did not include language clarifying that the bill would have no effect on legal abortion; this language was found in the federal version of the legislation.

However, observes Stanek, "As chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee in 2003, he stopped the identical wording from being introduced." This fact was confirmed recently by the National Right to Life Committee, which found and made public documents proving, beyond a doubt, that Obama voted against a version of the bill that included the abortion-protecting language."

Obama is a liar.

Next Obama said that he would support a ban on late-term and partial birth abortions. Check this out from

"In 1997, Obama voted against SB 230, which would have turned doctors into felons by banning so-called partial-birth abortion, & against a 2000 bill banning state funding."

So now he says he would support such legislation, yet voted against it.

And this from the Gospel of Satan--er I mean, the New York Times:

On Supreme Court Upholding Partial-Birth Abortion Ban


"I strongly disagree with today's Supreme Court ruling, which dramatically departs from previous precedents safeguarding the health of pregnant women. As Justice Ginsburg emphasized in her dissenting opinion, this ruling signals an alarming willingness on the part of the conservative majority to disregard its prior rulings respecting a woman's medical concerns and the very personal decisions between a doctor and patient."

So before he criticized the ban, but now he supports it...

Again, Obama is a liar.
