NARAL IS OUT OF THE MAINSTREAM ON ABORTION ISSUES

NARAL Is Out Of The Mainstream On Partial-Birth Abortion:

NARAL Opposed The Supreme Court Ruling Upholding A Ban On Partial-Birth Abortion. "[The] decision [Gonzales v. Carhart] shows Bush's appointees have moved the Court in a direction that could further undermine Roe v. Wade and protections for women's health. The door is now open for politicians like George W. Bush to interfere even more in our personal, private medical decisions. The Court has given anti-choice state lawmakers the green light to open the flood gates and launch additional attacks on safe, legal abortion, without any regard for women's health." (NARAL, "Supreme Court Decision Marks Setback For Women's Health And Privacy," Press Release, 4/18/07)

48 Republicans And 16 Democrats Voted For Ban On Partial-Birth Abortion. (S. 3, CQ Vote #51: Passed 64-33: R 48-3; D 16-29; I 0-1, 3/13/03)

NARAL Opposed "Unborn Victims Of Violence Act" Also Known As Laci And Conner's Law. (NARAL, "NARAL Pro-Choice America Delivers More Than 130,000 Petitions Opposing 'Unborn Victims Of Violence Act' To Senators," Press Release, 3/23/04)

48 Republicans And 13 Democrats Voted For Unborn Victims Of Violence Act. (H.R. 1997, CQ Vote #63: Passed 61-38: R 48-2; D 13-35; I 0-1, 3/25/04)

OBAMA IS OUT OF THE MAINSTREAM ON ABORTION ISSUES

In The Illinois State Senate, Obama Voted Against The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act:

In Committee, Obama Voted Against S.B. 230, The Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act. "Prohibits partial-birth abortions unless necessary to save the life of a mother whose life is endangered by a physical disorder, physical illness, or physical injury, provided that no other medical procedure would suffice for that purpose. Makes performance of a partial-birth abortion a Class 4 felony. Provides for a civil action by the father and maternal grandparents of the fetus. Prohibits prosecution of a woman on whom a partial-birth abortion is performed. Effective 60 days after becoming law." (S.B. 230: Illinois Senate Judiciary Committee, Passed, 7-2, 3/4/97, Obama Voted Nay)

When Answering A Question About HIV/AIDS Prevention For Young Girls, Obama Said He Didn't Want His Daughters "Punished With A Baby":

Obama Said He Didn't Want His Daughters "Punished With A Baby" When Asked How He Would Deal With The Issue Of HIV/AIDS And Sexually Transmitted Diseases In Young Girls. CNN's Mary Snow: "He just was asked a question about how his administration, if he's elected, would deal with the issue of HIV and AIDS and also sexually transmitted diseases with young girls. Here's Senator Barack Obama." Obama: "So when it comes specifically to HIV/AIDS, the most important prevention is education ... But it should also include ... information about contraception because, look, I've got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. I don't want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn't make sense to not give them information." (CNN's "Ballot Bowl," 3/29/08)
