Posted on 02/23/2012 6:32:15 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
Leave it up to Newt Gingrich to call President Obama a baby killer. Newt blasted Barack for his pro-choice history during last nights Republican presidential debate in Arizona.
When asked about Obama's recent decision mandating that employers' insurance plans cover contraception, Newt Gingrich pointed out that Obama voted in favor of a law that protected abortion providers during his term as state senator of Illinois.
As Gingrich put it:
"You did not once during the 2008 campaign ask why Barack Obama voted in favor of legalizing infanticide. 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.
It was an Obama bash at the 26th debate last night in Arizona as expected, but for Newt to say that the President is in favor of legalizing infanticide is just wrong. We doubt that the President is an advocate of killing a human infant.

And it's black babies that are being killed the most (with Planned Parenthood clinics built close to inner city neighborhoods] -- 33% of aborted babies are black (while blacks make up 13% of the population). Do the math.
GINGRICH: No, I think -- look, I think there's -- I want to make two -- I want to make two quick point, John.
The first is there is a legitimate question about the power of the government to impose on religion activities which any religion opposes. That's legitimate.
KING: Sure is.
GINGRICH: "But I just want to point out, you did not once in the 2008 campaign, not once did anybody in the elite media ask why Barack Obama voted in favor of legalizing infanticide. OK? So let's be clear here.
GINGRICH: If we're going to have a debate about who the extremist is on these issues, it is President Obama who, as a state senator, voted to protect doctors who killed babies who survived the abortion. It is not the Republicans."
BTW -- NRO has a poll question (w/o Paul) Who won the AZ Debate? (middle of page)
Only Newt will go after Obama and expose the MSM in it’s efforts to protect him.
yet we are hearing thunderous applause for the big government washington insider santorum, because of social issues only....
As a state senator Obama voted against bans on partial birth abortion & consistently refused to support legislation that would have defined an infant who survives a late-term induced-labor abortion as a human being with the right to live.
Thats about as close to advocating killing babies as a person can get.
And he does it with brevity and clarity.
Santorum recently called the msm on its double standard as well, suggesting that the media might want to spend some effort investigating (and making public) Jeremiah Wright’s theology, since BHO sat under him for twenty years.
Its funny how Catholics are extremists, and Liberation Theologists (Black) are mainstream.
Well, if you consider an unborn child to be an "infant", then Obama IS an advocate of infanticide. If you consider a living baby that has survived a botched abortion to be an "infant", then Obama IS an advocate of infanticide.
Newt jumped in and shut down King.
Obama voted against state legislation that would have protected newborn infants who had survived abortions from being left to die without food, water and medical care, and then lied about his reasons for doing so. The legislation was adopted at the federal level and finally in Illinois after Obama left the state legislature in 2004. The legislation was called the Born Alive Infant Protection Act and resulted from heroic work by Chicago nurse Jill Stanek who helped to publicize this barbaric practice and the need to get it outlawed. See http://www.nrlc.org/ObamaBAIPA/Truth.html
Facts are indeed stubborn things. Let’s hope Newt’s comment gets broadcast far and wide. Too many people are completely unaware of this especially heinous aspect of Barack Obama.
Exactly plus he voted for a bill that would exempt docs who did not help born alive babies during an abortion. he said a doc didn’t need the ‘ distraction” so born alive babies were alllowed to die
And the fact that the author felt it necessary to “abort” the last part of Newt’s point...”who survived the abortion,” says the cover-up has to be continued.
It hurts Obama and the Dems when “social issues” like murder are highlighted.
Number of abortions per year: Approximately 42 Million
Number of abortions per day: Approximately 115,000
1% of all abortions occur because of rape or incest; 6% of abortions occur because of potential health problems regarding either the mother or child, and 93% of all abortions occur for social reasons (i.e. the child is unwanted or inconvenient).
While white women obtain 60% of all abortions, their abortion rate is well below that of minority women. Black women are more than 3 times as likely as white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women are roughly 2 times as likely.
I thought this was a great line. I saw MSNBC hosts complaining about it after playing it without wanting to actually discuss it, and it made me laugh. They immediately started talking about ‘banning’ birth control as if that had something to do with anything.
Glad Newt got off that other nonsense and is going after Obama.
Agreed. It was a good, passionate line for Gingrich last night and needed to be said. Ohhhh the Obama butt boys in the MSM got off THAT one topic realllll quick when their Messiah was so openly called out on it. The GOP Party Super RINOs don’t like that kinda talk, neither....
Let's listen and see if Rush will give this outstanding conservative moment from the debate a full segment.
“. I was just disappointed Santorum either didn’t think of it or Newt just beat him to it”
Santorum wouldn’t have the balls to go after der leader on such a personal basis.
Newt also told the truth about Willard Romney and making Catholic institutions pay for the morning after pill when he was the liberal governor of Mass. When asked was this true, Willard lied through his teeth and said it was not. Newt went right back at him and said his sources, which have been verified said that was indeed the case. Romney did not challenge Newt on his assertion. In otherwords Newt caught Willard Romney in a lie and the lamstream media let their favorite liberal get by with his lies without questioning him on it. Romney is Obama light. Both are pro-abortion politicians. Big time!
The MSM cannot control the message with Newt and they know it and that is why they , the left, the elitist establishment are all trying to take Newt out.
And Newt was totally right in his assessment of Obama’s vote. Infanticide is exactly what he voted for.
Thank you for the transcript.
I'll drop this here too:
Everyone needs to watch it -- FULL SCREEN -- 30 minutes of American leadership. (also a transcript)
and even today reading what obama said horrifies me
here is what he said as he voted against protection for born alive babies
“As I understand it, Obama said during the floor debate, this puts the burden on the attending physician who has determined, since they were performing this procedure, that, in fact, this is a nonviable fetus; that if that fetus, or childhowever way you want to describe itis now outside the mothers womb and the doctor continues to think that its nonviable but theres, lets say, movement or some indication that, in fact, theyre not just coming out limp and dead, that, in fact, they would then have to call a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved. This, he argued, was too much to ask of a doctor performing abortions, and it could also, as he put it, burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.
Even proabortion people don’t support letting a live baby get thrown out with the trash
And wasn’t there an outcry from Catholic nurses (and pro-life care-givers of all stripes) who were being required to attend these abortions in hospitals, or face being fired?
“Too many people are completely unaware of this especially heinous aspect of Barack Obama.” (Satan)
Yes the other two were busy tag-teaming against Santorum.
Newt looked like a statesman, a little bemused by the antics of the children.
He is right about Obama sanctioning baby killing. Obama does just that.
Newt was the main one taking it to the enemy last night and the enemy is Obama.
“We doubt that the President is an advocate of killing a human infant.”
I would doubt it as well except for the FACT that he did. Please don’t let FACTS get in the way.
I wish this one short exchange would get some airplay. It neatly shows:
1. Obama is completely out of the mainstream and supports what a vast majority of Americans find to be absolutely abhorrent.
2. The MSM is nothing more than a propoganda tool of the Democrats.
3. Newt is the only candidate that continually hits the media and Obama in a way that they cannot spin to their advantage.
Not to nit pick but is that 42 million figure correct?
I seem to recall that as being about the total number since '73 when RvW was passed.
Yes, I’d like to know also. I got into it in my liberal Bible class by declaring myself pro-life and voicing my distaste for Planned Parenthood. I wanted to spout some statistics but was too vague about them to do so.
“We doubt that the President is an advocate of killing a human infant.”
I have no doubt that they either don’t know the facts or that they are lying.
The poll needs Freeping it showed Romney as winner at 47.7%
That’s why I included a link at the bottom. That’s where the information came from.
Since I don’t know for sure, I thought it best to include the source.
That is an outright lie! He took the cowardly way out and voted "present" instead of having the courage to defend allowing medical personnel to assist a baby who survived the procedure.
But since the government controlled media doesn't actually believe that an unborn baby is a "human infant", they actually believe their own lie.
Obama is going to have to explain his two state senate votes that promote deaths of live babies who somehow survive an abortion.
Quit playing word games, America. The opposite of life is NOT choice; it is death. You are either pro-life, or pro-death...there is no ‘mushy middle’.
At the link it indicates it’s a world wide number.
US is about 1.3 million per year which is more in line with other sources I’ve read.
Either way, they are both frightening numbers.
There’s a lot of money to be made killing babies.
notice how they said “we doubt”
Well I couldn’t careless what they doubt or do not doubt, the facts are the facts and if one could put aside their pea brain rat mind for moment then they would see he indeed voted to kill a baby after the baby survived the attempted murder, commonly known today as abortion.
Newt was bang on the money last night and when he said about the 2008 election and never once did obama get asked about his votes and stances then King tried to cut him off and change the subject and now the MSM and the bloggers try and cover that fact up.
If the GOP had balls they would have stopped the media bias years ago by calling them out and saying what Newt said on LIVE CAMERA so it would be too late for the MSM to just ignore it.
If Newt ever got the nomination then the MSM, the white house , obama, and the elitist establishment would be having nightmares knowing Newt will shake DC up and it is not business as usual and for Santorum who I like to say take one for the team was pathetic and a cop out.
Screw the take one for the team and ignore ones values, phony’s like Hannity always give up conservative social issues because of their friendship to homosexuals, cross dressers or their supporters and that was very clear last night by Hannity show having Sally Khon on again
New England Catholics supported him in 2008...shame on them.
the left always play their word games to put a positive word on a sick agenda and what is said many on the right just follow.
Abortion is murder, if a man kills a pregnant woman he is charged with double murder and the left has no problem with that .
Amnesty is called dream act.
Homosexuals are called gay and most on the right fall for it and won’t say homosexuals anymore or they give up their values or morals because they have found a new homo friend.
Illegal is now being called undocumented and the words just keep on going on and on.
murdering a baby is abortion
I for one will not and never will play their word game and will call things what they are, they are illegal,murder homosexuals it is amnesty etc
I read that huge article yesterday on FR about Romney’s history regarding abortion.
He just doesn’t care, one way or the other. He has ZERO passion for this issue. He’s not PRO life, he’s not PRO choice, he just wishes the issue would go away.
If PRO life is your issue, Romney is NOT for you.
I never use the phrase ‘pro-choice’...it is pure satanic BS from the pit of hell.
Even if Newt doesn’t get the nomination — he’d make one hell of a press secretary!
I know how low our culture has sunk. But when, in a public setting, a presidential candidate accuses the sitting president of being in favor of infanticide, and there is no discussion of this accusation in the media the following day —our culture is officially dead.
We are no better than the Canaanites.
God help us!
“A new estimate published by the National Right to Life Committee indicates there have been an estimated 54,559,615 abortions since the Supreme Court handed down its 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision allowing virtually unlimited abortions.
Although the March for Life took place today, yesterday was the 39th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions companion cases from Texas and Georgia that struck down pro-life laws protecting unborn children across the country.
n a new document, Abortion Statistics: United States Data and Trends, NRLC education director Dr. Randall K. OBannon estimates that there have been 54,559,615 abortions since 1973 based on data from both the Centers for Disease Control and the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute, a former Planned Parenthood research arm. Guttmacher receives numbers directly from abortion centers themselves and is the prime source for more current figures because the Centers for Disease Control has never tabulated accurate numbers of abortions. The CDC relies on figures from state health departments, some of which rely on voluntary reporting and it hasnt had data from some states such as California and New Hampshire for more than a decade.
Because of these different methods of data collection, GI has consistently obtained higher counts than the CDC. CDC researchers have admitted it probably undercounts the total number of abortions because reporting laws vary from state to state and some abortionists probably do not report or under-report the abortions they perform, OBannon says.
The number means there are more than 3,300 abortions daily and 137 abortions per hour every hour in the United States. Translated another way, an abortion is done about every 30 seconds in the United States.”...........................
