It Sounds Pretty Far-Fetched That Obama Would Vote To Allow Born Alive Infants To Die, Right?

Justin Taylor:

Robert George and Yuval Levin, in a new article on Obama and Infanticide, argue that Obama's response during the third debate regarding the Illinois Born-Alive Infants Protection Act "followed the pattern of his approach to this subject throughout the campaign: deny the facts and confuse the issue."

Read the whole thing. Here's the conclusion:
Some of Senator Obama's supporters are now making one last, rather desperate-sounding attempt to defend his votes against protecting infants born alive after unsuccessful abortions. Their argument goes this way: Permitting children who survive attempted abortions to be abandoned is so heinous, so barbaric, that for someone to accuse Senator Obama, a decent man who is himself the father of two daughters, of supporting what amounts to legalized infanticide is too outrageous to merit an answer. There is a problem, though. In light of the documentary evidence that is now before the public, it is clear that the accusation against Senator Obama, however shocking, has the very considerable merit of being true.
When I was watching the debate (transcript) and heard Obama say this, "If it sounds incredible that I would vote to withhold life saving treatment from an infant, that's because it's not true", I was immediately thinking, "Man, that is a good strategy on his part. It does sound pretty far fetched that he would do such a thing. This dude is seriously crafty."

Before you vote, please do the research. Don't be a lazy voter.

This post will help that process.
This one will too.
