Obama’s policies on abortion are as far left as you can get, as noted at Issues2000. Among them:
“On March 30, 2001, Obama was the only Illinois senator who rose to speak against a bill that would have protected babies who survived late term labor-induced abortion. Obama rose to object that if the bill passed, and a nine-month-old fetus survived a late-term labor-induced abortion was deemed to be a person who had a right to live, then the law would ‘forbid abortions to take place.’ Obama further explained the equal protection clause of the Fourteenth Amendment does not allow somebody to kill a child, so if the law deemed a child who survived a late-term labor-induced abortion had a right to live, ‘then this would be an anti-abortion statute.’"
Sounds like political doublespeak to me. Late term abortion is a fixed term—nothing flexible about it. I know supporters of abortion rights in some circumstances who are horrified at the prospect of late term abortion. Why are pro-Obama Catholics horrified at Obama's policy now?
