WASHINGTON, Sept. 22 /Christian Newswire/ -- Day Gardner, president of The National Black Pro-Life Union, makes the following comments and is available for interviews:
Barack Obama voted against Illinois' Born Alive Infants Protection Act that would protect babies who survived abortion.
He misrepresented his vote, saying that the bill he opposed in the Illinois State Senate was different from the bill that was passed by the US Senate and signed into law by President Bush. However, the National Right to Life Committee has produced documents that confirm the two bills were exactly the same.
To make matters even worse, Obama is now attacking Gianna Jessen, a young woman who by some blessing, miraculously, survived being killed by abortion.
Rather than applaud her life, he totally disregards her and ignores her passionate plea for the lives of babies who after surviving abortion--are strangled, suffocated, stabbed to death, or shelved until dead-- which amounts to infanticide.
Barack Obama's is far more extreme than anyone else on this issue.
It is hard to believe that this man vying for the highest office in America would not only oppose legislation to protect children born alive, but would then lie about it for 4 years stating that he did not oppose it.
Mr. Obama behaves like a small child caught with his hand in the cookie jar--instead of telling the truth, he continues to deny the obvious and spouts tall tales like some children do.
Okay, we'll make it easy for you, Barack. Maybe you failed to actually read the Born Alive Infants Protection Act and voted against it by mistake, everyone has an off day, right? Just own up to it.
