This website even has the case the vote was based off of. The poor baby's parent's didn't want anything to do with it. Please read: http://antiobamassiah.wordpress.com/2008... From the site: ------"After Obama was the only senator to speak on the floor against the bill, he must not have wanted to also be the only senator to vote against the bill. He ended up officially voting “present” in a move that was decided between he and lobbyists from Planned Parenthood. In the Illinois legislature, a vote of “present” has the same effect as a “no” vote on an issue. However, by voting “present,” Obama, and the other 11 Illinois senators that voted “present,” could keep his hands from getting dirty while handling sticky political issues. A method he used repeatedly throughout his legislative career. After passing the Senate, the bill eventually died in Illinois State House of Representatives."

Yes...he believes if a baby that's being aborted ends up still alive when taken out of the mothers womb, it's ok to just let them lay there and die, which could take hours. How brilliant is that? He also said a woman should not be "punished" for getting pregnant by having the child. His wife said a woman has a right to decide when she's ready to have a family. So what rights do the babies have? That man would be a disaster for the US if they vote him in office!

We have some Obamaniacs here who are so protective of their messiah that they deny he voted THREE times AGAINST a bill that would require medical attention for babies who survive an attempted abortion. These fawning devil-worshippers will lie, cheat and even KILL for their anointed leader. Barack Obama is not pro-choice – he is PRO-ABORTION. It takes a special kind of mindless zealot to claim Republicans are trying to smear Obama with a lie when his record is available for all to see. If this allegation is false, why doesn’t it appear on Obama’s “Stop the Smears” website? If this is a smear, it would be easy to prove it is wrong. Apparently, the very paranoid Senator Obama has been unable to “fix” his voting record and chooses to ignore it. But it will NOT go away. Partial birth abortion is a horrible procedure. If a baby survives the procedure in spite of the “doctor’s” best efforts to kill it, Obama wants to make sure that baby dies of neglect in the linen room. It’s not wonder he thinks he is God. He has been playing God long enough to believe in himself. Guess why Barack “The Baby Killer” Obama wants nothing to do with Town Hall meetings.

He voted to let the survivers DIE. edit... Charity is wrong. Read this Wall Street Journal article about Gianna Jessen, a surviver of attempted abortion: http://online.wsj.com/public/article_pri...

He voted against a bill that would have provided "comfort care". It was the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. google it. There's plenty of information on it. You can even look up his voting records.

Your representation of Obama's voting record is fraudulent. This misconception has been corrected dozens of times in Yahoo Answers, so you really don't have an excuse. Don't extremist conservatives think it might hurt their cause to put out stuff that's so easily debunked? or do they not think their audience would feel its intelligence is being insulted? To see this lie fully debunked, go here: http://mediamatters.org/items/2008082200... http://mediamatters.org/items/2008081500... http://mediamatters.org/items/2008080200... http://www.truthfightsback.com/site/smear/248/ http://my.barackobama.com/page/invite/corsi (Barack's 40-pg debunking of Corsi's smears) or slog through the following: Many on this site are falsely presuming that Obama's voting against certain abortion legislation was because it provided babies the right to protection if they survive a late-term abortion. Obama correctly has pointed out that the existing law provided such protections already, and voted against the newer legislation due to OTHER constraints it would put on the woman's rights. The act which failed in the Illinois Senate sought to outlaw pretty much ALL abortions....for any reason including deformity, terminal illness, rape, incest. The legislation in question threatened the standing abortion laws in the state, while others provisions were bundled in that created liability for doctors, designed to intimidate doctors and make it more difficult to perform legal procedures. So Barack Obama opposed it for that reason, not to oppose protection of babies born alive. The act was designed as "wedge" legislation. It would have no effect on medical procedures, but was designed for just for these sorts of attacks. The Illinois legislature, after Barack Obama left to take his US Senate seat, passed a law that explicitly said it wouldn’t affect existing Illinois law on choice. Barack Obama has said he would’ve supported that law. When a group does this, they put one horrible provision (the "infanticide" part of the bill) and package it with a bunch of other provisions that assault a woman’s right to choose. Then, when someone votes against the bill to protect that right, they say the vote was over the "infanticide." In reporting on abortion-rights opponents’ criticism of Sen. Barack Obama's opposition as an Illinois state senator to bills seeking to amend the Illinois Abortion Law of 1975, the media have promoted numerous myths and falsehoods about Obama and the legislation. In several instances, the media have simply repeated false accusations -- or made the accusations themselves -- that Obama's opposition amounted to support for infanticide. In fact, Obama and other opponents said the bill posed a threat to abortion rights and was unnecessary because, they said, Illinois law already prohibited the conduct supposedly addressed by the bill. On the August 18 edition of his radio show, Rush Limbaugh claimed that Obama "believes it is proper to kill a baby that has survived an abortion," while right-wing pundit Ann Coulter said that Obama "wants the doctors ... chasing it through the delivery room to make sure it gets killed." Further, author Jerome Corsi claimed that "[e]ven if a child was born, he said the woman still had the right to kill the child in an abortion," and Oregonian associate editor David Reinhard wrote that Obama's opposition was "enabling infanticide." In fact, Obama and other opponents said the bill posed a threat to abortion rights and was unnecessary because, they said, Illinois law already prohibited the conduct supposedly addressed by the bill. So instead of thinking, "Hmm, this sounds just a little too improbable, that Obama would want babies surviving abortions to be killed. I'd better research this first before I make this claim. After all, I'm a journalist and don't want to be caught out reporting on something that turns out to be easily debunked, and that most people would think sounds phony from the start. I don't want to lose my credibility as a journalist," they instead just MAKE STUFF UP, expecting their audience to be dumb enough to fail this gullibility test of a story. It's been said that, if it weren't for lack of context, there would be no news. But this is ridiculous. You have to consider the source. One source of these claims is Jerome Corsi, who has also written that McCain made his wealth through the Mafia and that 9/11 was perpetrated by the Bush Administration. Another source of these claims is Jill Stanek, who says domestic violence is acceptable against women who have abortions. She also supports billboards in Tanzania that say "Faithful Condom Users" in English and Swahili, written next to a large skeleton, to discourage condom use. She claims that "aborted fetuses are much sought after delicacies" in China to which she added, "I think this stuff is happening." Nurse Jill Stanek claimed that fetuses that were born alive

I wish the mainstream media would discuss these issues. I'm relieved to see Americans wanting to find the real truth out about Obama.

I think that he voted to let the baby die in an abortion that the baby survived. Meaning offer it no medical asst, food, etc. Also, Charity is wrong..a girl named Gianna survived and lived to write a book.

Yes. Social conservatives may be dissatisfied that McCain is a nominee, but they will all vote for him anyway.

Two of every five pregnancies” in New York City end in abortion...?
The morals of society have become so suppressed that people don't even know what is good or bad sometimes. I imagine that some people think that abortion is perfectly normal, that God "wouldn't have invented abortion if it wasn't okay for us to do it". But, fact is, God did not invent abortion...

How much would abortion be if my girlfriend is 26 weeks pregnant and where can we go?
At 26 weeks the is actually an 80% survival rate if she were to deliver now. That means she's way too far along for an abortion to even be an option. In IL, it's illegal after 24 weeks for that reason.
