The Audacity of Death By DANIEL ALLOTT June 5, 2008
According to Barack Obama, Gianna Jessen shouldn't exist.
Miss Jessen is an exquisite example of what antiabortion advocates call a "survivor." Well into her third trimester of pregnancy, Gianna's biological mother was injected with a saline solution intended to induce a chemical abortion at a Los Angeles County abortion center. Eighteen hours later, and precious minutes before the abortionist's arrival, Gianna emerged. Premature and with severe injuries that resulted in cerebral palsy. But alive. Had the abortionist been present at her birth, Gianna would have been killed, perhaps by suffocation.
...As an Illinois state senator, Barack Obama twice opposed legislation to define as "persons" babies who survive late-term abortions. Babies like Gianna. Mr. Obama said in a speech on the Illinois Senate floor that he could not accept that babies wholly emerged from their mother's wombs are "persons," and thus deserving of equal protection under the Constitution's 14th Amendment.
A federal version on the same legislation passed the Senate unanimously and with the support of all but 15 members of the House. Gianna was present when President Bush signed the Born Alive Infants Protection Act in 2002.
...To Mr. Obama, abortion, or "reproductive justice," is "one of the most fundamental rights we possess." And he promises, "the first thing I'd do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act," which would overturn hundreds of federal and state laws limiting abortion, including the federal ban on partial-birth abortion and bans on public funding of abortion.

Gianna Jessen ping
If they aren't "persons," Barry, what are they? Dogs? Cats? Rutabagas??
He just doesn’t want either of his daughters punished with a baby.
Obama says they are “punishment”.
The young woman sat in the doctors office waiting room and cuddled the 6 month-old boy in her lap. Soon she was escorted to an exam room.
The doctor finally came in, smiled, sat down, glanced at her file and asked Mrs. Jones, what brings you here today?
She hesitated — then the words tumbled out in a torrent.
Doctor, my husband doesnt make much money, we have 3 children now and Im pregnant again. Doctor we just cant afford another mouth to feed were barely making it now. She paused again. Doctor, I want an abortion.
The doctor sat back in his chair, laid the file aside and said, An abortion costs around 500 dollars and you probably dont have the money. I have a better, less expensive option. Reaching into a drawer, the doctor extracted a scalpel and continued.
Lay the lad here across your lap and pull his shirt up so his chest is exposed.
Shocked, she blurted, What are you going to do?
Why, well simply kill THIS baby.
Clutching her son to her breast, she leapt to her feet and shouted You MONSTER!
The doctor paused, then spoke.
Mrs. Jones, the only difference between your proposal and mine is that one baby is IN your lap and the other is ON you lap and, therefore, much easier to get at.
She ran from the room, his words ringing in her ears.
Is abortion the killing of a human being?
Not according to Obama, NARAL and the other radical feminist gangs who require that abortion continue to be available to them as a last resort birth control method to allow them to persist in their sexually promiscuous lifestyle.
Ill believe its NOT a human being when a woman gives birth to a chicken, hog or a tree.
there is no hell hot enough........
“If they aren’t “persons,” Barry, what are they? Dogs? Cats? Rutabagas??” - That’s always been the sticking point for me. A baby looks and acts and in fact IS completely different than an adult, so why do some “people” refuse to accept that an embryo/unborn child, while looking/being completely different than an adult, is a human being? It’s hard to explain, but there are different stages of being a person. Lucky for Obama his typical white mom thought it fit to give birth to him.
In Obama's case, he refuses to grant the rights of citizenship, indeed, the rights of "personhood" to a baby (not an embryo or a fetus, but a born baby, completely separated from the mother and breathing American air on American soil) because the baby's mother didn't want the child to be born, and had wanted an abortion.
"Yes ma'am, you signed up for an abortion and we're not going to let a little insignificant fact like the kid being born alive prevent you from getting that abortion."
GOOGLE ‘THE MOST PRO-ABORTION CANDIDATE EVER’
That statement definitely told everyone what his present wife, Michelle, thinks about the kids he stuck her with eh.
Doesn’t surprise me one bit.
These same people would not contend that the not-yet-born colt growing, changing daily and being nurtured within the body of its dam (i.e. mother)is not a living horse in a very early stage of its development.
I thought partial-birth was the bottom. I’m really shocked again.
So, in Obama’s eyes, would Gianna be a person now? Would he say that she can still be killed by anyone who wants to finish the abortion? Or if she is now a person, when did become one? Did she gradually become a person over some period of time? How? Someone needs to ask the followup questions.
