Help Protect Legal Infanticide; Vote For Barack Obama

A few years ago, I served as Chairman of the Board for a local Christian, non-profit, pro-life, abortion-alternative ministry to young women. During those years, I had several opportunities to speak and write articles as a representative of the ministry.

At that time, I became aware of Jill Stanek. She was a nurse who worked for several years at the Christ Hospital and Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois, in the suburbs of Chicago. You might have seen her appearance on the O’Reilly Factor in 2001. She chose to work at that particular hospital partly because of its Christian name, hoping that she would not be required to face some of the moral and ethical dilemmas regarding abortion that some of her cohorts face in other hospitals. She soon discovered that the Hospital had been performing abortions since 1978. She also learned that the hospital favored a non-surgical abortion method that used a drug to induce premature labor in many late-term pregnancies. The babies delivered are quite small but FULLY FORMED and some of them are actually BORN ALIVE.

One busy night Jill encountered another nurse who was on her way to a utility room to drop off an aborted but still living baby. The nurse was too busy with other patients to hold the baby until it died. Jill took the baby and held it for nearly an hour until it died of suffocation. Two other living infants were found naked and left to die of exposure that night in that utility room. One was left lying on a cold, hard scale and the other, at the counter at the edge of a sink. Jill was particularly disturbed by the Hospital’s inconsistency with its own mission statement;
“The mission of advocate health care is to serve the health needs of individuals, families, and communities through a holistic philosophy rooted in our fundamental understanding of human beings as created in the image of God.”

The whole story was disgusting, no, it was nauseating. Frankly, I had forgotten about that until just a few days ago when Stan McCullars reported this, Obama Lied; Babies Died, on his blog, Just After Sunrise. And then Stan followed up that piece with this one. Also, J & J Ministries posted this video clip of Jill Stanek addressing Barack Obama’s position on infanticide.

Parenthetically, I see where the liberal, P.C. spinmeisters have, once again, changed the language so that the horrors of the practices are obscured. Today those procedures are called “induced labor abortions.” But the practice should be called what it is – Baby killing. Partial birth abortions are justified by some sick, convoluted thinking that reasons that, as long as some portion of the baby’s body still remains in the birth canal, it is not yet born and can be aborted. Whether or not a baby's brains are vacuumed out prior to a completed birth or the baby is born alive and left unattended to die, it is none-the-less, infanticide.

This issue has been thrust back into the forefront of current event politics with the upcoming election. Barack Obama, every chance he got, opposed the Born-Alive Baby Protection Act. Quoting Jill Stanek, “This one guy, Barack Obama, thought that infanticide was acceptable and voted four times to protect (this barbaric practice).”

This week he named his choice for a running mate, Joseph Biden, who is another advocate for women’s rights for abortions (that is the non-P.C. term for pro-choice).


Does anyone expect the next president of the United States to uphold the constitutional rights of ALL Americans to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness? If Obama is you choice, you have no right to expect that. He has been very clear; you can’t miss it. His voting record to protect the lives of babies stands. His choice of a running mate who supports infanticide stands. His public remarks about his philosophy of supreme court justice appointments, and his declaration that it is time to change the makeup of the court are matters of record. And when asked when he thinks human life begins, he dodged the issue on national television, by claiming that the answer to that question is “above my pay grade.”

Barack Obama cannot get a pass on this! This is an abomination.


Matt Barber at Townhall.com wonders, "...what does one call a lawmaker who would condemn to death the child survivor of a botched abortion by permitting doctors to refuse that child, once born alive, potentially life-saving medical treatment and nutrition?"


The word, "presidential" certainly doesn't come to mind. He suggests a more appropriate word, Obamicide.

A truly presidential attitude on this subject was stated by Ronald Reagan who said, "Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born."

Thanks for the link.

Have you seen the Townhall.com post by Matt Barber, Obamacide?

He defines Obamacide as condemn(ing) to death the child survivor of a botched abortion by permitting doctors to refuse that child, once born alive, potentially life-saving medical treatment and nutrition.
