A Blatant Lie

I'll have to delve momentarily into that murky, irritating swamp we know as politics, only because it concerns a misconception widely held by well-intentioned Obama-supporters.

In response to accusations that he supports infanticide because he voted against the Illinois Born Alive Infants Act (which would protect babies born alive after a botched abortion), Obama said he would have voted in favor of the bill if it had included a neutrality clause protecting Roe v. Wade.

New documents show this is a bald-faced lie. The Illinois Born Alive Infants bill was amended to include a neutrality clause, but Obama voted against it anyway.

The charge of infanticide holds.
