2003 Audio: Obama Argues For Infanticide

From The Weekly Standard:

Obama Says "That Fetus or Child" Was "Just Not Coming Out Limp and Dead"

Obama’s argument: Trust the abortion doctor.

By JOHN MCCORMACK | Aug 23, 2012
Here’s an audio recording of Barack Obama arguing as an Illinois state senator in 2002 against legislation protecting infants who had survived an attempted late-term abortions:

Obama’s argument against the bill is that he trusted an abortion doctor, who had just failed to kill a child in utero, to provide medical care to that child if it survived the abortion attempt. "If these children are being born alive, I, at least, have confidence that a doctor who is in that room is going to make sure that they’re looked after," Obama said.


OBAMA: I just want to be clear because I think this was the source of the objections of the Medical Society. As I understand it, 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 child – however way you want to describe it – is now outside the mother’s womb and the doctor continues to think that its nonviable but there’s, lets say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just out limp and dead, 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. Is that correct? […]

Who can talk this way about a dead baby? How cold can you be?

OBAMA: Let me just go to the bill, very quickly. Essentially, I think, as — as this emerged during debate and during committee, the only plausible rationale, to my mind, for this legislation would be if you had a suspicion that a doctor, the attending physician, who has made an assessment that this is a nonviable fetus and that, lets say for the purposes of the mother’s health, is being — that — that labor is being induced, that that physician (a) is going to make the wrong assessment and (b) if the physician discovered, after the labor had been induced, that, in fact, he made an error, or she made an error, and, in fact, that that physician, of his own accord or her own accord, would not try to exercise the sort of medical measures and practices that would be involved in saving that child.

Now, if — if you think that there are possibilities that doctors would not do that, then maybe this bill makes sense, but I — I suspect and my impression is, is that the Medical Society suspects as well that doctors feel that they would be under that obligation, that they would already be making these determinations and that, essentially, adding a — an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation to come in and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion. Now, if that’s the case – and –and I know that some of us feel very strongly one way or another on that issue – that’s fine, but I think it’s important to understand that this issue ultimately is about abortion and not live births. Because if these children are being born alive, I, at least, have confidence that a doctor who is in that room is going to make sure that they’re looked after. Thank you, Mr. President."

So who is the extremist on the subject of abortion? By the way, isn’t this far more outrageous than anything Mr. Todd Akin said?

And how come we never hear anything about the Democrats War On The Unborn. Their War On Babies? Instead, they pretend to be the defenders of children.

    I would like to be there when Obama stands before God to answer for his life

    Shocking. Chilling. Disgusting. Cold-hearted. Inhuman.

    We have a monster in the White House.

    God help us all.

    What I see here is a man who makes decisions based on what he thinks or by “plausible rationale.” Not whether a now living and breathing person has the Constitutional right to life, liberty, and property that cannot be taken away without due process.

  4. Tater Salad says:

    This guy, Barack Obama is one sick person. Plain and simple. Doesn’t say much for the people who support and vote for this loser!

  5. River0 says:

    The GOP must make a campaign spot featuring this atrocity and offense against God. Using the president’s words alone, with a text translation, the effect would be shocking and chilling to all people who still have a soul.

    It would be entirely honest. We have an alien in the White House.

    If the Demonicrats had something like this on Romney, is there any doubt they would use it? We can win easily by using Obummer’s own words to define him.

    excerpts Barack Obama “The Audacity of Hope” 2006

    “There was a bill sponsored by antiabortion activists that on its face sounded reasonable – it mandated lifesaving measures for premature babies (the bill didn’t mention that such measures were already the law) – but also extended “personhood[sic]”
    to previable[sic] fetuses, thereby effectively overturning Roe v Wade; in the poll, I was said to have “voted to deny lifesaving treatment to babies born alive.” Running down the list, I came across a claim that while in the state legislature I had voted against a bill to “protect our children from sex offenders.”

    “Wait a minute,” I said snatching the sheet from David’s hands. “I accidentally pressed the wrong button on that bill. I meant to vote aye, and had it immediately corrected in the official record”

    David smiled. “Somehow I don’t think that portion of the official record will make it into a Republican ad.” He gently retrieved the poll from my hands. “Anyways, cheer up,” he added, clapping me on the back. “I’m sure this will help you with the sex offender vote. ”

    I WONDER SOMETIMES how things might have turned out had those ads actually run. ”

    So is Obama saying quote “children or a viable child is not personhoods[sic]? And I thought he was a Muslim because he hates freedom and women. Abortion is legal in Islam but not partial-birth, not that stops them from mutilating baby girls the rest of their lives.

    We wonder too Obama how things might have turned out. But, the fact that Obama’s church of 20 years; anti-Jew and White, and Obama’s former Muslim pastor Reverend Wright’s church mission was to aid sex offenders, former Muslims, and babysitting, What better place to have sex-offenders than in a sex offender supporting church.

    Rev Wright to Obama: Barack, you know we need these sex-offenders in the church.
    They are sinners just like me and you. I was a practicing Muslim Barack and I could be jailed in this country.
    Think Barack of the hideous things you’ve done.
    Think Barack of your own Muslim ancestors and the deplorable acts of hunting down for marriage and raping that grandfather did.
    These sex-offenders are children of God just as you and me.
    It’s our culture Barack to have rappers that lead to sex offenders and violence.
    Barack do you want to lose the black celebrities money you will need?
    It won’t set well in my church Barack if you vote to stiffen penalties against sex offenders.
    It will cost us more to shelter and feed them.
    You must forgive them Barack and vote against the bill.

      Barack Obama The Audacity of Hope

      pg 127 “Our views on abortion aren’t determined by the science of fetal development, and our our judgment on whether and when to pull troops out of Iraq….

      pg 120) ” A disclaimer here: For a three-year span, from the time that I announced my candidacy for the Senate to the end of my first year as a senator, I was the beneficiary of unusually – and at times undeservedly – positive press coverage. No doubt some of this had to do with my status as an underdog in my my Senate primary, as well as my novelty as a black candidate with and exotic background. Maybe it also had something to do with my style of communicating, which can be rambling, hesitant, and verbose (both my staff and Michelle often remind me of this), but which perhaps finds sympathy in the literary class.”

      So basically Obama understands he was elected because the press was too nice, he was an exotic black man that say’s duh..uh..rambles…uh. uh. uh. And this makes the literate feel sorry for him. People felt sorry for Obama and voted for him. And doesn’t Obama admit he’s illiterate and can’t write even more so with next part..

      And just how illiterate was Obama ?????

      122 “A few months later, Time magazine asked if I would be interested in writing an essay for a special issue on Lincoln.
      I didn’t have time to write something new, so I asked the magazine’s editors if my speech would be acceptable. They said it was, but asked if I could personalize it a bit more – say something about Lincoln’s impact on my life. In between meetings I dashed off a few changes. One of those changes was to the passage quoted above, which now read, “In Lincoln’s rise from poverty, his ultimate mastery of laguage and law, his capacity to overcome personal loss and remain determined in the face of repeated defeat-in all this, he reminded me not just of my own struggle.”

      For goodness sakes. Obama was born into wealth, a sprawling seaside home in Hawaii. He grew up going to free private schools and Universities and the elite Occidental. He traveled the world. He was a spoiled rotten kid.

      How can he compare himself to be so honest he walked all day to return a book. Did Obama chop logs?
      Truth is Obama could not write the article. He has always suffered writers block. He did spend his presidency writing a children’s book.

      pg 132 “There was the criminal law bill that purported to crack down on drug dealing in schools but had been so poorly drafted that I concluded it was both ineffective and unconstitutional -“Obama voted to weaken penalties on gangbangers who deal drugs in schools,” is how the poll described it. ”

      Rev Wright: Now Barack you don’t want to vote down cracking on gangbangers and drug dealing in our schools. Barack you are a man whose made a lot of mistakes in your life and that book you wrote will be used against you. And you will hurt our church and former Muslims if you go after gangbangers. And you know most our congregation does drugs!

      Obama: Yes, Rev Wright you right.

      Rev Wright: Now Barack, you did good excusing your being in Hawaii sipping Mai Tai’s and missed that vote to crack down on crime in the streets. You did good blaming it on Michelle and a sick baby you were burdened and punished with.
      Barack I’m powerful in this community. Now you do what I say and let crime go. Abort those baby’s, we have enough to babysit. And write that book and name it after the first sermon you heard me tell. The one that made you at least think maybe there was a God. Oh what a glorious day that you got your Muslim religion back that day thanks to me.
      That’s all it took. Just believe in allah again. Do like Malcom.

    For those many conservatives who crucified Todd Akin in a fit of over-reactive zealotry that would make any leftist proud (and you know who you are), this question is especially relevant.

      Having listened to the audio does Obama really think 1 doctor can’t tell if the born baby is alive or dead?

      Doesn’t dumb ass Obama know the 2nd doctor is to keep the 1st doctor from tossing live baby’s in the trash can? So ignorant.

      I remember a muslim doctor that was dumping the baby’s on a farm, and hunters found them. Yes, right in the U.S.A.

    Audio more detailed!

    So, was was Obama’s white grandmother limp or dead when he visited her.

    She may have been dead when he visited her as he was too cheap to pay a doctor.

    Obama: just put in her in the closet until the day before election, sis.

    After Indonesia, and Africa nothing grosses us out. Yummie. Just the thought of dog and monkey meat brings back memories.

    He was so hateful and drugging while living with his grandmother and grandfather that his mother told him he wasn’t staying in Hawaii and playing basketball at Hawaii University all his parents went to. Mom told him to leave the state when he didn’t want to go. His druggie friend just went into jail. The one he was in the ice box room at the diner shooting up drugs that scared Obama imagining a bubble going through his vein. Ah. What’s happened to me to end up a junkie. Oh well, off to Occidental to be an actor where that California white girl tourist said she was going. Party party party. Ha ha. The Mexican maid started crying when she cleaned our 48 hour straight drug binge in the hotel we rented. Ooops. I’m sorry. I forget your grandma was Mexican. ha ha. I don’t like women. I want a boy that looks like me.
