Obama’s latest excuse for opposing the Illinois
Born-Alive Infants Protection Act
is that the law was ”unnecessary”
because babies surviving abortions
were already protected.

It won’t fly.

In last night’s presidential debate, Sen. John McCain finally found an opportunity to confront Sen. Barack Obama on his vote against protecting children who were born alive after an attempted abortion.

Obama’s response followed the pattern of his approach to this subject throughout the campaign: deny the facts and confuse the issue.

He said: ”There was a bill that was put forward before the Illinois Senate that said you have to provide lifesaving treatment and that would have helped to undermine Roe v. Wade. The fact is that there was already a law on the books in Illinois that required providing lifesaving treatment, which is why not only myself but pro-choice Republicans and Democrats voted against it.”

But the facts of the born-alive debate tell a different story.
