You have to hear this: it's audio of Obama discussing the "burden" of trying to save the life of a child born alive during an abortion (Hat Tip: Kathryn Jean Lopez at The Corner).
The important quote is as follows (unofficial transcript):
"...and that essentially adding an additional doctor who then has to be called in an emergency situation to come in and make these assessments is really designed simply to burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion." Barack Obama on the Born Alive Infants Protection Act
Bear in mind the following:
The "emergency situation" is that the child has survived the induction abortion--he or she has emerged from the womb alive despite the efforts taken to kill him or her.
The "assessments" referred to means noting whether the child is still alive.
The "original decision" is the woman's decision to kill her baby.
In other words, the baby, by living, places an undue burden on his or her mother because he or she didn't get the memo and came into the world alive; rather than summon an additional doctor, whisk the baby to the neonatal intensive care unit and try to save his or her life, Obama thinks the abortionist should get to carry out the abortion by neglect after the child has entered the world.
Make no mistake. What this man supports and stands for is evil in its rawest and most diabolical form. Though I recognize that others may disagree, I honestly see no way whatsoever that a Catholic in good conscience could lend his support to someone who so openly, blatantly, coldly and determinedly fought for the "right" of women undergoing an induction abortion to continue the "abortion" and achieve the death of the child after the child's birth.
You think McCain will get us into wars and engage in unjust empire-building? Possibly. But Barack Obama has shown beyond any shadow of a doubt that he has no respect for the intrinsic value of a human life, and it is from such men that dictators are made.
