BARAK OBAMA IS A MONSTER

He is a liar too. And now heâ€™s being called out on it so that the world can see him as he truly is: a monster. By now, I am sure there are not too many people who have NOT heard about Senator Obamaâ€™s extremist pro-abortion history and his single-handed killing of the Illinois version of the Federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act. The problem that I have is not only with Obama and his morbid obsession with enabling the deaths of untold infants, itâ€™s the way his extremism is being portrayed. Most of the conservative outlets do, for the most part, report Obamaâ€™s position as radical or extremely pro-abortion, which in and of itself is not incorrect. However, it does stop a bit short of calling Obama on what he truly is, not only by his votes of â€œpresentâ€ while in the state senate in Illinois but also by his refusal to actually name his true position, and by his wildly errant and duplicitous answers and accusations toward those who would call him out. He has shown himself by his actions and inactions that he is, in truth and in deed, something absolutely unconscionable to the civilized mind: he is a radical proponent and activist for the cause of infanticide. The harsh reality is that behind the smiles and lofty rhetoric lurks the real Senator Barak Obama, a man who is a monster of Hitlerian proportions.
For those unfamiliar, in 2003 while serving in the Illinois State Senate, as Chairman of the Health and Human Services Committee, Obama took the lead role in killing Senate Bill 1663, a Bill that, if passed would require immediate and appropriate medical care for an infant that survived an attempted abortion and was subsequently born alive. The type of abortion in question is a late-term abortion performed by a method known as â€œinduced-labor,â€ and â€œlive-birth,â€ where drugs are administered to the mother to induce labor, birth the baby and, if the baby should inconveniently survive the labor and birth, the newly born infant is left to die. This is what was being practiced in Illinois, specifically at Christ Hospital which, according to the sworn testimony of Jill Stanek a Labor and Delivery Nurse who was fired for blowing the lid off of this Pandoraâ€™s box, â€œperforms abortions during the second and even third trimesters of pregnancy.â€
The Bill in question that Obama summoned all the power and privilege of his position as Chairman to defeat would have simply required that in the event the abortion procedure resulted in a live birth, that is a baby surviving the initial abortion and being born alive, it (the baby) would have to be medically assessed, cared for, treated and given basic comforts. For Obama, this was too much an encroachment on Roe V. Wade and too much of a burden to place on the mother and the abortionist who wanted the baby dead in the first place, poor things. The summary of the bill reads thus:
â€œAmends the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975. Provides that no abortion procedure that, in the medical judgment of the attending physician, has a reasonable likelihood of resulting in a live born child shall be undertaken unless there is in attendance a physician other than the physician performing or inducing the abortion who shall address the child’s viability and provide medical care for the child. Provides that a physician inducing an abortion that results in a live born child shall provide for the soonest practicable attendance of a physician other than the physician performing or inducing the abortion to immediately assess the child’s viability and provide medical care for the child. Provides that a live child born as a result of an abortion shall be fully recognized as a human person and that all reasonable measures consistent with good medical practice shall be taken to preserve the life and health of the child.â€
The aforementioned nurse, Jill Stanek, testified before the Judiciary Committee, upon which Obama served, that those babies that survived the abortion were taken from the mothers and brought to a â€œsoiled linenâ€ room where they were placed and simply left alone to die; and, that the only required checks to be made by staff were to approximate time of death. Later she would comment that Senator Obama was seemingly undisturbed in any way by her testimony of the horrors ongoing at Christ Hospital, and surely at many others.
Later as Chair of the Health and Human Services Committee, Senator Obama was the only person to take the floor and speak out against a bill that would save he life of a baby that survived a â€œlive-birthâ€ late-term abortion.
Obama testified that he was confident that, in the â€œunlikelyâ€ event the abortionist messed up and the baby was born alive, he would trust that by the very ethics of the profession said doctor â€“ who had intended to kill the baby in the first place â€“ would now do everything possible for the baby without the encumbrance of such a law. Of course he would. Obama also said that adding an additional doctor â€“ by requirement of law â€“ â€œto be called in an emergency situation and to come in and make these assessments is really designed to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.â€
To clarify his twisted reasoning Senator Obama explained his position thus: “whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the Equal Protection Clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a — a child, a 9-month old — child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it — it would essentially bar abortions, because the Equal Protection Clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an anti-abortion statute.”
As if going out of his way to defend the indefensible werenâ€™t bad enough, now heâ€™s lying about it â€“ even when his own campaign staff is acknowledging that Obama did indeed kill the bill. Obama said Pro-Life advocates are distorting the record and that the only reason he opposed the bill was because it did not include the same language as the Federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which included language approved by Sen. Diane Feinstein to protect with Roe v. Wade. From the New York Sun, 18 August 2008: â€œHis campaign yesterday acknowledged that he had voted against an identical bill in the state Senate, and a spokesman, Hari Sevugan, said the senator and other lawmakers had concerns that even as worded, the legislation could have undermined existing Illinois abortion law. Those concerns did not exist for the federal bill, because there is no federal abortion law.â€
Obama voted â€œpresent,â€ which in political speak means, â€œI am spineless and need plausible deniability for the viability of my future career. Currently I am not in a position to vote as I really believe on this issue. This is my round-about way of voting â€˜Noâ€™ and denying it later.â€
When testifying before the Illinois State Senate Judicial Committee, a hearing at which Obama was present, Jill Stanek explained what horrors were perpetrated at Christ Hospital:
â€œThe abortion method being called into question that Christ Hospital and other Illinois hospitals practice is called â€œinduced labor abortion.” This abortion technique sometimes results in infants being aborted alive. In the event that an infant is aborted alive at Christ Hospital, she or he is given no medical assessments or care whatsoever, but is left to die.â€
â€œThe induced labor abortion procedure can be performed using a couple different medications, but the goal always is to cause a pregnant woman’s cervix to open so that she will deliver a premature baby who dies during the birth process or soon afterward. At Christ Hospital the physician inserts a medication called Cytotec into the mother’s birth canal next to the cervix. The cervix is the opening at the bottom of the uterus that normally stays closed until a mother is about 40 weeks pregnant and ready to deliver. But Cytotec irritates the cervix and stimulates it to open early. When this happens, the pre-term baby drops out of the uterus, sometimes alive.â€
â€œIn the event that a baby is aborted alive at Christ Hospital, he or she is not given any medical care, but is rather given what my hospital calls â€œcomfort care.” â€œComfort careâ€ is defined as keeping the baby warm in a blanket until the baby dies, although until recently even this was not always done. The baby is then offered to the parents to hold until he or she dies.â€
â€œIf the parents do not want to hold their dying aborted baby, as is most often the case, it is left to nursing staff or support staff on the floor to hold the baby until he or she dies. And, until this past December, when staff did not have time or the desire to hold the baby, the baby was taken to our Soiled Utility Room and left there alone to die. Christ Hospital’s comfort care policy, #WHS492, only requires that live aborted babies be checked for signs of life once an hour, or â€˜as needed in order to verify time of death.â€™â€ [emphasis mine]
â€œIt is not uncommon for live aborted babies to linger for an hour or two or even longer. At Christ Hospital, one of these babies once lived for almost an entire eight-hour shift. Last year alone, of the 13 babies that I am aware of who were aborted at Christ Hospital, at least four lived between 1-1/2 to 3 hours, two boys and two girls.â€
What is this if not monstrous? What kind of person could vote to or otherwise deny a little newborn infant comfort in its final moments? It is difficult to even imagine what the helpless infant is experiencing. How callous and cold-hearted have we become to allow such horrors to take place? Only a monster could do such a thing. Obama, it seems in his ardent enthusiasm for perpetuating the senseless slaughter of viable born-alive babies cannot, of course, even bring himself to acknowledge when life begins, as we all observed during his Saddleback performance. If life does not begin at conception, sir, then what would be the purpose for using contraception during the conjugal act? It would be to prevent something, would it not? Something that upon fertilization begins to multiply and grow, where chromosomes are joined together that will â€œdetermine many of the child’s physical characteristics, including sex, eye and hair color, height, and even intelligence to some extent. This process is simple, yet profound, and it occurs at conception.â€ [Ken Connor: When Does a Baby Get Human Rights?]
It is sickening to think that such horrible things as these were happening to helpless infants, and even though we have the Federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act, there are still places where late-term abortions are being performed on viable second and third trimester babies. And it is evil.
The Roe v. Wade decision is without question one of the single most destructive things that has ever happened to this country, for it has desensitized us to the very things that our Founding Fathers risked their very lives for: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. One cannot enjoy liberty or pursue oneâ€™s happiness if one is not alive, now, can one? Once desensitized to life, and the taking of life, there is no limit to the depths to which a society can sink, and in the 35 years since the tragedy of Roe we have sunk vey far. We have sunk far enough to kill millions of unborn babies, ripping them limb from limb from what ought to be the safest place in the world â€“ their own mothersâ€™ womb. We have sunk far enough allow a young woman in a â€œvegetativeâ€ state to die a horrible death by court ordered starvation. Any we may very well elect a President who is a proponent of ripping helpless babies alive from the womb and letting them suffer and die alone. We have embarked upon the slippery slope of the culture of death, and with no foreseeable end in sight. Who is to be next, Senator? The infirm or deformed or demented? Those who, in the opinion of a court, would not have a sufficient quality of life as to be worthy of living? Those whose continued existence could be considered an undue burden on society? Christians and Jews?
This man is evil, and if not stopped we will all continue to suffer. Let us remember that Hitler did not just erect concentration camps overnight. Rather he was patient and deceptive, letting misinformation, propaganda and time do his most effective campaigning. Abortion on demand was first, then an infanticide much akin to the kind embraced by Obama. Then the benevolent and caring Fuhrer compassionately decided that the difficulties that would lay ahead in the lives of the severely disabled were too burdensome for them and their caretakers, and that the best choice would be to save them from such misery and allow them to die with dignity and cyanide gas. From the severely disabled the moderately disabled were targeted. From there it was but a short step to the killing of anyone for any reason which, of course, is exactly what happened.
Once a society is wholly desensitized to violence and once human life becomes devalued and such evils become part of the accepted fabric of that society, it becomes inevitable that terrible consequences are only a few electoral cycles and economic crises away. Politicians will always find scapegoats to save their own hides or to use exploitatively for their own personal gain. Do not be so foolish as to believe such things can never happen here â€“ the German citizenry under the Weimar Republic would never have believed that such unspeakable evil could happen to their country, but it did. And all that was needed was fear, an economic crisis, threats of foreign aggression and a man who was at that time a prophet of hope and change for Germany. Some say that history tends to repeat itself. Let us hope and pray that they are wrong.
