Day 6: Obama Panders on Abortion

Barack Obama is hoping to grab evangelical voters by misleading them about his pro-abortion views. But Obama cannot run away from his far-left track-record says David Freddoso, who highlighted Obama’s shocking and callous views in his New York Times bestseller, The Case Against Barack Obama.

Obama has always supported the controversial 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that made abortions legal, and he previously spoke AGAINST a law that would give life-saving care to babies who survive failed abortions, (see Day 2: Obama “Premature Babies Aren’t People”) but now the Democrats have changed their tune to say he also “strongly” backs a woman’s decision to carry a pregnancy to term.

According to The Case Against Barack Obama by David Freddoso, Obama doesn’t believe babies born alive during a failed abortion should have the same rights of other babies.  He’s said “whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a—a child, a nine-month-old—child that was delivered to term.” (p. 197)

Like the rest of his political track record outlined in The Case Against Barack Obama, his abortion stance is radical and completely out of step with American voters.

David Freddoso is available for comment about Barack Obama’s short, but shocking legislative record.
