Wow!!… Obama Admits His Record On Abortion Is the Most Liberal Of ANY Washington Politician!!
Barack Obama killed legislation that would have saved the lives of babies born after botched abortions.
That’s disgusting… No wonder he tried so hard to hide this.
In 2003, Barack Obama, as chairman of an IL state Senate committee, voted down a bill to protect live-born survivors of abortion. The right hand column shows the roll call by which Obama and his Democratic colleagues killed the amended bill – the bill was virtually identical to the federal law that Obama, starting in 2004, claimed he would have supported if he’d had the opportunity.

Right to Life blogger Jill Stanek reported this breaking news today–
Physical evidence (the actual IL General Assembly vote tally) shows that on March 13, 2003, Barack Obama voted for an amendment making the IL Born Alive Infants Protection Act identical to the federal Born Alive bill.
Obama then voted against the amended bill, making him more pro-abortion that any other U.S. senator, who all voted unanimously for Born Alive. It makes Obama more pro-abortion than NARAL even, which went neutral on the federal Bill.
Yet after the Saddleback Showdown on August 16, 2008, Obama stood by his lie when asked about it by CBN’s David Brody, as shown on CNN.
Yet, after realizing that the Right to Life Coalition had documents to back up their allegations against Obama’s radical abortion record–
His camp changed their story on Sunday.
The New York Sun reported:
Indeed, Mr. Obama appeared to misstate his position in the CBN interview on Saturday when he said the federal version he supported “was not the bill that was presented at the state level.”
His campaign yesterday acknowledged that he had voted against an identical bill in the state Senate, and a spokesman, Hari Sevugan, said the senator and other lawmakers had concerns that even as worded, the legislation could have undermined existing Illinois abortion law. Those concerns did not exist for the federal bill, because there is no federal abortion law.
Rather than continuing to slander the Right to Life Coalition Obama admitted that his stand on abortion is the most liberal of any Washington Politician!
Sen. Obama is currently misleading people about what he voted against, specifically claiming that the bill he voted against in his committee lacked “neutrality” language on Roe v. Wade. The bill did contain this language. He even participated in the unanimous vote to put it in.
*** Obama has not apologized to the Right To Life Coalition, yet.
