I’ve written previously about President Obama’s 3 votes as an Illinois State Senator against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. How anyone could be against providing life-saving medical care to a newly born survivor of a botched abortion is beyond my ability to comprehend. But that’s just what our President did, and he’s proud of it.
At his press conference today, President Obama expressed his outrage over a botched execution attempt this week that resulted in the condemned criminal dying of a heart attack. He then went on to say that the Justice Dept. would investigate to determine how an execution could have gone so horribly wrong. No investigations will be conducted into the deaths of the 3,500 unborn children killed in America today. As far as the President and his Justice Dept. are concerned, today’s body count in America’s abortion mills was just business as usual.
Last July, as my family awaited the birth of my second grandson, I felt compelled to query the President on his long and sordid history of supporting and enabling the killing of our unborn children. I dispatched the following letter to him on July 11, 2013.
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW
Washington, D.C. 20500
Attn: President Barack Obama
July 11, 2013
Have you ever noticed how a slug leaves a trail of slime in its path, marking its route as it slithers and slinks through life? It’s kind of like the trail of blood you’ve left throughout your political career; starting as a mediocre State Senator and ending as an abject failure of a President. You do, however, get high marks for consistency. You’ve never wavered in your rabid support of the pro-abortion movement.
I’m trying to get my head around how you could have voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act 3 times between 2001 and 2003, knowing that by doing so you were sentencing babies who had survived botched abortions to death. In essence, your vote gave the abortionist a ‘do over’ if they failed to kill the innocent child on their first try. This is especially troubling since your first daughter, Malia, was 2 ½ years old at the time of your first vote against life, and your second daughter, Sasha, was born alive, and allowed to live shortly after your third vote.
Mr. President, if you think it’s proper to kill a newly born child by performing a procedure to end its life, or by simply failing to provide life saving medical intervention, at what point do you believe that child’s constitutional Right to life begins? Better yet, at what point did your daughters’ Right to life begin? Sir, in what I’m sure you thought was a courageous move, you voted Present in 2001 when you had the chance to vote for the protection of children who were born alive. Your convoluted justification for your vote was your fear that providing life-saving treatment to a child who had just survived a botched abortion would confer constitutional Rights to the child, thereby rendering abortion illegal.
Mr. President, the semantics box you and the pro-abortion crowd have pigeon-holed yourselves into with terms such as previable fetus (living baby), late-term abortion (murder prior to birth), and CNS decompression (suctioning a living child’s brains from its skull) are closing in on you. Modern ultrasound and sonogram technology provide irrefutable evidence that a developing baby is a separate, unique, living human being. Sir, seeing the beating heart of a living child is incontrovertible proof of life.
Mr. President, I won’t give up on bringing you over to the pro-life side. With your obvious failings as President, one would think you would jump at the chance to climb onboard a movement whose mission is the protection of all unborn children. Think about it and get back to me.
In the meantime, try hanging out with a better crowd. Being associated with the likes of Cecile Richards and the eugenics crowd has to be a real buzz kill.
