What kind of change?

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

Some of the most radical stands on abortion belong to Barack Obama. He voted four times in the Illinois State Senate against legislation that would provide care and protection for babies who are born alive after an abortion. Obama co-sponsored legislation (Senate #1173) which would make partial-birth abortion legal, require taxpayer funding of abortion, and it would also go against state laws limiting abortion, such as parental notification laws.

Partial-birth abortion is the heinous procedure, from the fifth month on, where a living baby is pulled from the womb feet-first, except for the head. A probe is inserted into the skull of the living baby and the brains are suctioned out.

This is not the "Change" we need in our country. John McCain and Sarah Palin stand for the rights of the born and un-born.
