Born Alive Infants Protection Act: Congress heard testimony about babies that had survived attempted late-term abortions. Nurses testified that these preterm living, breathing babies were being thrown into medical waste bins to die or being “terminated” outside the womb. With the baby now completely separated from the mother, it was impossible to argue that the health or life of the mother was in jeopardy by giving her baby appropriate medical treatment.
Who would oppose a bill that said you couldn’t kill a baby who was born? Not Kennedy, Boxer or Hillary Rodham Clinton. Not even the hard-core National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL). Obama, however, is another story. The year after the Born Alive Infants Protection Act became federal law in 2002, identical language was considered in a committee of the Illinois Senate. It was defeated with the committee’s chairman, Obama, leading the opposition.
Let’s be clear about what Obama did, once in 2003 and twice before that. He effectively voted for infanticide. He voted to allow doctors to deny medically appropriate treatment or, worse yet, actively kill a completely delivered living baby.
I will stay up the whole mother-fucking night if that means I do not have to dream about you again.
I think everyone has a movie that they love so much that it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I’ll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone’s laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I’m still the only one who really, really gets it.
If you’re up to times then you know all about celebrities and their children (even if you’re not, how can you avoid them!) with their baby photos, and what-not. I mean c’mon, no wonder Angelina and Brad keep on littering the world with their kids If magazine’s will bid $15 million for exclusive photos of the babies who wouldn’t take up the deal? $15 million more than pays for raising those kids, paying for college, and, hell, even allows you the privilege of dumping the brats on a nanny, so you can get back to the baby making!
Bluntly, I think it’s absolutely rediculous that ANYONE would pay anywhere near 15 million dollars for a baby photo! But, if there’s anyone interested in my baby snaps I’ll kindly consider offers of $500 and up. :)
