Later this afternoon I’ll be adding Here are the links to the posts and articles that were mentioned in the podcast:
Mary Anastasia O’Grady’s A Cuban Hero
Ed Morrisey’s Infanticide, revisited
Casey Fiano’s Change you can believe in: Obama is PRO baby murder
and my post from last year, Abortion and Oscar Elias Biscet
“the umbilical cord was cut and they were allowed to bleed to death or they were wrapped in paper and asphyxiated.”
That year, I described Christ Hospital’s Comfort Room, unveiled in December 2000 to counter my public statements that personnel were shelving babies to die in the department’s soiled utility room next to dirty linens, bloody and biohazardous waste, and a urinal.
This was no academic debate. The issue arose when, as Freddoso notes. Christ Hospital in the Chicago area got outed for leaving these infants to die after a nurse blew the whistle on the hospital. An investigation determined the truth of the allegations, and the Illinois legislature debated on whether infants born alive during abortions should be considered persons and require practitioners to provide care for them. Obama, even with the redundant “neutrality clause” attached to the bill, said no.
Clearly, Obama lied about his position. It’s no small rhetorical matter, either. His vote puts him on the extreme of the pro-abortion camp, so extreme in fact that not a single member of Congress would follow his example. Obama voted to allow Christ Hospital and other facilities performing abortions to allow live children to die.
