    1. "Newt Gingrich deflected a question ...by pointing out that Obama voted in favor of a law that protected abortion providers during his term as state senator of Illinois
    "You did not once during the 2008 campaign ask why Barack Obama voted in favor of legalizing infanticide," Gingrich said. "If we're going to debate about who is the extremist on this issues, it is President Obama, who, as a state senator, voted to protect doctors who killed babies."
    Newt Gingrich Calls Obama An 'Extremist' Who Supported 'Infanticide' At GOP Debate


    2. n·fan·ti·cide/inˈfantiˌsīd/
    Noun:
    The practice in some societies of killing unwanted children soon after birth.


    3. "Gingrich was presumably referencing Obama’s opposition to Illinois’ proposed version of a “born alive” law, intended to require doctors to administer immediate medical care to any infant that survived an intended abortion....FactCheck.org found holes in Obama’s explanations as to why he did not support the “born alive” legislation..."
    FACT CHECK: Gingrich Claim on Obama Infanticide Vote A Stretch - Naureen Khan - NationalJournal.com

    a. "Obama voted in committee against the 2003 state bill that was nearly identical to the federal act he says he would have supported. Both contained identical clauses saying that nothing in the bills could be construed to affect legal rights of an unborn fetus, according to an undisputed summary written immediately after the committee’s 2003 mark-up session."
    FactCheck.org : Obama and ‘Infanticide’

    4. If a child is 'accidentally' born alive as a result of a botched abortion attempt, Senator Obama had no problem allowing that newborn to die, sans any medical attention.


    5. Now, lest anyone believe that there is a nuanced explanation that would be acceptable to normal people....consider the fact that President Obama appointed Professor Peter Singer as his heathcare advisor.
    Peter Singer Joins Obama's Health Care Administrators : I Am Not a Fan of Peter Singer Story & Experience

    a. "Singer once wrote, "because people are human does not mean that their lives are more valuable than animals." He not only advocates abortion but also killing disabled babies up to 28 days after they are born. In his book "Practical Ethics," he wrote, "When the death of a disabled infant will lead to the birth of another infant with better prospects of a happy life, the total amount of happiness will be greater if the disabled infant is killed.... Killing a disabled infant is not morally equivalent to killing a person. Often, it is not wrong at all."
    Peter Singer, "Practical Ethics," Cambridge University Press, 1979, p. 191.


    So...did Obama have a cavalier attitude about killing infants?
    Would you appoint anyone who advises killing infants?....Obama did.
    Was Gingrich correct?
    Seems indisputable.

    It is very true and was brought up last election cycle, it's that everyone was so excited about hope and change and didn't think of the consequences of electing a guy without looking at his record.

    I remember reading this. If he had voted for giving the aborted fetus medical care he would essentially be admitting that they just tried to kill a baby and failed. So, he voted against giving the aborted fetus any life saving treatment. How callous and cold is that?

    The liberals will vote for Obama regardless of his stance on abortion. The welfare bums and welfare whores will vote for Obama regardless of his stance on ANYTHING!

    I will vote against Obama.

    Indeed. Pretty hard to say pro-lifers are coming between the mother and her doctor. It becomes starkly obvious pro-lifers are really coming between the unborn and their butchers.

    Can't have that!

    I'm not certain that I would call the physicians and surgeons 'butchers'....

    but when I think of individuals such as Barack Obama, or Peter Singer, who hold human life...and the most defenseless...babies.....with such disregard, the word that comes to mind is

    .................'Monsters.'


    This discussion points the bloody finger at the Fourth Estate...
    ....as I am certain that many good people who voted for this fraud would not have done so had the OP been put in its proper context.
