“Obama’s Abortion Extremism”

Email Email Print

From Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson:

Obama’s record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion — a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called “too close to infanticide.” Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed that he would not want his daughters to be “punished with a baby” because of a crisis pregnancy — hardly a welcoming attitude toward new life.

Religious conservatives who are not enthusiastic about senator McCain have to realize that in Barack Obama the Democrats are nominating the most zealous abortion-rights advocate to ever seek the presidency. Add to Gerson’s column the fact that, as noted below, the ACLU-like Chicago Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under the Law (Obama served on its Board of Directors) urged the criminalization of protests outside of abortion clinics.

It is safe to say that the polices Obama would pursue as president and especially the judges he would appoint would represent the triumph of the most extreme pro-abortion point of view in the U.S.

From the fig-leaf of “safe, legal and rare,” past the “safe, legal and don’t care” that is the de facto position of most elected Democrats, to Obama’s “stop the punishment of young women with babies and criminalize opposing views.”
