This morning on CSPAN, feminist hag Eleanor Smeal denied that Barack Obama supported denying medical care to infants lucky enough to survive attempts to kill them. That was a lie. Please see today’s Post of the Day, Jill Stanek’s great Illinois Review post from 2008, Top Ten Reasons Barack Obama Voted Against The Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which I plan to leave up a little longer.
Tonight during the CNN AZ GOP debate, Newt called out the LSM on their failure to ask the One about his support for infanticide:
Newt Gingrich deflected a question about Obama’s recent decision mandating that employers’ insurance plans cover contraception by pointing out that Obama voted in favor of a law that protected abortion providers during his term as state senator of Illinois
“You did not once during the 2008 campaign ask why Barack Obama voted in favor of legalizing infanticide,” Gingrich said. “If we’re going to debate about who is the extremist on this issues, it is President Obama, who, as a state senator, voted to protect doctors who killed babies.”
I love the way the LSM characterizes Obama’s disgraceful record while an Illinois state senator. “[P]rotected abortion providers?” That’s one way to put it. It’s not what I would have said. I would have said that he voted against providing medical care to the most innocent and helpless people in society, knowing that they would be left to die alone, and possibly in pain, in a dirty closet.
A home run. Nicely played, Mr. Speaker.
