Defending abortion is central to Obama even if it means abandoning children born alive after abortion. In the discussion of the Illinois bill below, Senator Obama wants the abortionists to have carte blanche with regard to babies who survive abortion. This despite testimony by nurses of babies being born alive and left to die. Nurses Jill Stanek and Allison Baker described their experiences of living aborted babies routinely being neglected at Christ Hospital in Chicago. That's been the case since the early days. In 1974 Dr. David Edelman aborted a baby by hysterotomy and deliberately put the placenta over the baby's face to smother the child to ensure a dead baby. Abortionists want dead babies -- that's what they're paid to produce. A live baby is a complication. And Obama is a great enabler of child killing as he was when he was a state senator in Illinois. He continues to be the cheerleader in chief for child killing. Things haven't changed since his days in Illinois.
