Obama Avoided the Abortion Truth Trap

” Defining “a pre-viable fetus” that survived an abortion as a “person” or “child,” he argued, “would essentially bar abortions, because the Equal Protection Clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”

by Terence Jeffry

When Obama was in the Illinois Senate, the Born Alive Infants bill came up three successive years.

In 2001, three bills were proposed to help babies who survived induced labor abortions. One, like the federal Born Alive Infants bill, simply said a living “homo sapiens” wholly emerged from his mother should be treated as a “‘person,’ ‘human being,’ ‘child’ and ‘individual.'”

On all three bills, Obama voted “present,” effectively the same as a “no.” Defining “a pre-viable fetus” that survived an abortion as a “person” or “child,” he argued, “would essentially bar abortions, because the Equal Protection Clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”

In 2002, Obama voted “no” on the bill.

More here on Townhall from which this information was derived.

Shrewd man that he is, Mr. Obama saw the trap–the truth trap–into which he would be snared should he sign the bill. For indeed if a child is a child while inside his mother, then abortion is murder.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 81 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 64 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

Maybe Jay. But it’s about 1,000,00,000 to 1. We need more Christians speaking out against poverty, police brutality, racism, war, hunger, . . .

But Barack Obama needs the votes of people on both sides.

BTW, I am against abortion.

No. Smart man that he is, Mr. Obama saw the trap–the one issue trap–into which he would be snared should he sign the bill. For indeed, a lot of people don’t seem to care much about what happens to children after they’re born, or they’d consider many other issues.
