Obama and Infanticide: The Chilling Audio

For those like Bob Beckel and Alan Colmes whose heads explode at the mere suggestion that their candidate, Senator Barack Obama, supports infanticide, here's audio of Senator Obama arguing against the Born Alive Act in his own words; click the title of this post to listen.

My transcription of Obama's statement:

"Essentially adding 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."

Got that? Having a doctor come help a baby who happens to be born alive during an abortion is a "burden" to "the original decision." Since the woman desired to abort the baby, in Barack Obama's America, that baby should be left to die a miserable, lonely death without medical care.

That might be Barack Obama's America, but it's not mine, and I don't think Obama's point of view will sit well with many Americans, even those who otherwise might be pro-abortion.

This position is so radical that I suspect it's going to be a huge problem for Obama going forward, if only because once again it undermines his original political positioning as a reasonable man.

Add in his hypocritical claim to be someone who wants to follow the Biblical precept to "do for the least of my brothers" and his lying and obfuscations about his record on the born alive topic, and Senator Obama has a serious negative issue which won't be going away.
