"...they’re not just coming out limp and dead..."

This is simply breathtaking:

“SENATOR OBAMA: So — and again, I’m — I’m not going to prolong this, but I just want to be clear because I think this was the source of the objections of the Medical Society. As I understand it, this puts the burden on the attending physician who has determined, since they were performing this procedure, that, in fact, this is a nonviable fetus; that if that fetus, or child — however way you want to describe it — is now outside the mother’s womb and the doctor continues to think that it’s nonviable but there’s, let’s say, movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead, that, in fact, they would then have to call a second physician to monitor and check off and make sure that this is not a live child that could be saved. Is that correct?” http://www.ilga.gov/senate/transcripts (Page 32)(April 4, 2002)

Senator Obama famously passed on opining as to the beginning of life such that a (using the words of the Master Orator) “fetus, or child — however way you want to describe it” merits protection of the law. Maybe he really has no idea.

Comments:
I don't see how pro-life folks can support either Obama or McCain. Millions of folks in other states will have Alan Keyes of Gaithersburg on the ballot as a choice for President. Here in Maryland, we'll have to write him in. He is the nominee of America's Independent Party -- a party formed this summer that has already become the USA's third largest national party, in terms of the number of registered voters. Check out the pro-life plank in the new party's platform:

Equal rights for our posterity

Because the stated ultimate purpose of the United States Constitution is "to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity," we recognize the personhood of all unborn children and their protection by the Fifth and the Fourteenth Amendments.

The right to life of all innocent persons, from fertilization to natural death, is God-given and unalienable. That is why we consider it to be a moral imperative to fully establish in law that Personhood is granted by our Creator to all human beings from the very beginning of their biological development.

For the principled man or woman, no compromise is possible concerning such a critical matter of life and death. We believe that violators of this supreme right, in words or actions, are unfit for any office of public trust, since any such violation constitutes the breaking of the oath of office and the ultimate destruction of the very basis of our liberty.
