Obama Blurs the Facts on Born Alive Infants Protection Act
Date:10/16/2008

"During last night's debate, Senator Obama did his best to obfuscate the facts on his record on legislation in Illinois that sought to protect babies that survive abortion. Senator Obama continues to proclaim the lie that Illinois law already protected babies born alive during abortions.

"He ignores a letter dated July 17, 2000 in which Illinois Attorney General Ryan reported that the Illinois Department of Public Health found there was 'no basis for legal action' to protect babies that survive abortion.

"On March 30, 2001, Obama spoke from the floor of the Illinois legislature, saying that the Born Alive Infants Protection Act placed an undue burden on doctors to keep a child alive. The fact remains that those who opposed the bill were unwilling to prevent infanticide.

"Senator Obama took the opportunity last night to continue to blur his radical abortion views. He has a long record of opposing any legislation that protects innocent life -- opposing a ban on partial-birth abortion and voting four times against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. The senator, in 2003, even voted against an identical version that passed 98-0 in the U.S. Senate and on which the pro-abortion group NARAL expressed neutrality.

"Additionally, in a speech last year to Planned Parenthood, he promised to sign as his 'first act' as President a law that would overturn nationwide bans on partial-birth abortion as well as require the use of taxpayer funds to pay for abortions. The speech is much more revealing about how far he will go to push his extreme views."
