The issue of the infamous Born Alive Infant Protection Act was raised recently on CNN for the second time in a month. Seems like this vote won’t just go away, huh?
For anyone needing a reminder that bill was brought up after Congress heard testimony about babies who had survived attempted late-term abortions being thrown into medical waste bins to die or being “terminated” outside the womb. With the baby completely separated from the mother, it was impossible to argue that the health or life of the mother was in jeopardy by giving the baby appropriate medical treatment.
The act simply prohibited the killing of a baby born alive. Obama voted against it while even Ted Kennedy voted for it.
I do not believe this vote by Obama will go away and may indeed prove to be a motivating factor for many to vote against him. It is far beyond pro-choice. That vote is just plain old pro-death and I believe it shows the real Obama.
In a recent report, CNN shows McCain promising to protect the life of the unborn and then that serpent James Carville defends Obama by not dealing with the radical pro-death vote by Obama, but by attacking the nurse who acted as a whistleblower to prevent the killing of babies who survived abortions. Carville attempts to dismiss the whole issue by simply saying she was fired.
Mind you, that nurse is Jill Stanek who is one of the great pro-life advocates of our time. This out-of-the-blue attack is simply a continuation of the political game known as killing the messenger. Mind you, Obama’s vote had nothing to do with Jill Stanek being fired. Jill Stanek was fired because she stood up to the hospital and exposed this barbaric practice.
Kudos to CNN for raising the issue twice. But as this issue resurfaces, I hope Jill Stanek is ready for the attacks which are sure to come her way. It’s only just begun.
