November 3, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) has released an online book documenting the extreme pro-abortion advocacy of Barack Obama, proving that the Democratic presidential candidate has a spotless pro-abortion record in his years as a legislator.
A quote from Jeff Jacoby of the Boston Globe features prominently on the first page: “On abortion, no presidential candidate has ever been so extreme.”
The document, entitled “Barack Obama on Abortion,” focuses its attack on Obama’s radical beliefs, ushering forth a long list of news clippings, speech and press release quotes,and copies of original senate voting records. The book lets the facts to speak for themselves, citing original source material rather than advancing arguments.
The book dedicates a chapter to Obama’s rejection of the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act – a bill “virtually identical to the federal measure … passed by the U.S. Senate without dissent.” Noting that Obama had earlier accused the NRLC of “lying” about this data, they also quote Factcheck.org, who found that the bills were indeed identical.
Another chapter outlines Obama’s wholehearted support for the Freedom of Choice Act: “This act, if passed and signed by the President of the United States, would go far beyond even the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.
“It would overturn virtually all pro-life legislation, make partial-birth abortion legal again, require taxpayer-funding for abortion, and strike down essentially all limitations on abortion, including parental notice and consent laws.”
The book highlights other aspects of Obama’s radical agenda, including his objection to a law prohibiting the transportation of minors across state borders to obtain an otherwise illegal abortion, as well as his objection to limiting taxpayer funding for abortion.
