Michelle Obama wrote a letter in 2004 endorsing partial-birth abortions, a heinous procedure that involves removing an unborn baby during the latter stages of the second trimester or early stages of the third trimester and crushing the back of her head with scissors. Obama, in a fundraising letter on behalf of her husband’s 2004 Illinois Senate campaign, said bans on infanticide were “clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned.”
“The fact remains, with no provision to protect the health of the mother, this ban on a legitimate medical procedure is clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned,” Obama wrote, according to a letter discovered by LifeNews. “Attorney General Ashcroft and President Bush believe so zealously in their cause that the privacy right of patients are under assault. They believe we have no federal right to privacy when it concerns our medical histories.”
The Supreme Court in 2007 upheld the ban on partial-birth abortions. . . .
Barack Obama, who voted against the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act while he was a state senator in Illinois, has been an extremist on abortion.
The report by Steven Ertelt at LifeNews is here. It is stunning to think that, in running for Senate in 2004, Obama would have been so cynical as to have his wife write this letter, practically advocating such a horrible procedure, as a fundraising issue!
Perhaps the “Catholics for Obama” spokesmen can explain this?
Has anyone heard from those guys lately? Anyone? Bueller?
