Do NOT Be Fooled

In 2000, the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act was first introduced in Congress. This was a two-paragraph bill intended to clarify that any baby who is entirely expelled from his or her mother, and who shows any signs of life, is to be regarded as a legal "person" for all federal law purposes, whether or not the baby was born during an attempted abortion.

In 2002, the bill was enacted, after a "neutrality clause" was added to explicitly state that the bill expressed no judgment, in either direction, about the legal status of a human prior to live birth.

Barack Obama, voted against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which would have prevented babies been aborted alive and left to die.

Obama's justification for voting against the BAIPA? He said that he felt it was worded in such a way that it would undermine Roe vs. Wade.

As a state senator, he claimed that he voted against the Illinois bill for the reason that the federal "neutrality clause" was not included. He said that for this reason, he could not support the Illinois bill.

Obama was boldly lying through his teeth, because, as you can find the documentation to prove, Obama was actually part of the committee that added this "neutrality clause" to the Illinois bill...and in fact, he was chairman of that committee, when he voted against the bill in 2003! So the "neutrality clause" he claims was not there, was there, by his own doing, and he STILL voted against it!

Not only did Obama have the audacity to lie about this, he also had the audacity to call the National Right to Life Committee "liars" for saying this about him. Even though they had the documentation to prove he was the liar!
