US Senate Dems Approve Funding for DC Abortions – Obama Will Sign Bill This Week
In September 2008 abortion survivor Gianna Jessen joined Born Alive Truth in an illuminating ad campaign that attacked Barack Obama for voting to snuff the life out of newborn babies who miraculously survived the abortion process:
Here’s the powerful ad on Obama’s infanticide record from BornAliveTruth.org:
Can you imagine not giving babies their basic human rights, no matter how they entered our world? My name is Gianna Jessen, born 31 years ago after a failed abortion. I’m a survivor, as are many others… but if Barack Obama had his way, I wouldn’t be here.Unfortunately, Barack Obama voted four times against affording these babies their most basic human right. I have serious concerns about Senator Obama’s record and views on this issue, given he voted against these protections four times as a state Senator. Just as abuse victims share their stories to educate the public, fight for the common good and hope that as a result politicians do what’s right, I felt it was important to come forward and give these new born babies a voice.
I am living proof these babies have a right to live, and I invite you to learn more about Senator Obama’s record on this important issue.

Barack Obama voted 4 times to support infanticide.
So is it really a surprise that Obama will sign a bill this week that authorizes the use of taxpayer money to fund abortions in Washington DC?
Life News reported:
The Senate approved an omnibus spending bill on Sunday that would lift the 13-year-long ban on directly paying for abortions in the nation’s capital. The legislation, which President Barack Obama is expected to sign, also contains funding for Planned Parenthood and the UNFPA.
The Senate passed the bill, which funds several federal government departments, by a 57-35 vote, with Democrats backing the measure and most Republicans opposing it.
Passage of the measure today was no surprise given that Democrats won a filibuster battle on a narrow 60-34 vote that saw Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Thad Cochran of Mississippi and Richard Shelby of Alabama side with Democrats to move ahead to a vote on the bill.
Those same three Republicans voted for the bill and three Democrats, pro-abortion Sens. Evan Bayh of Indiana, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin, all voted against it for other reasons.
61% of Americans oppose taxpayer funded abortions.
