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 Obamas 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 Obamas 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 committees 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.
