What are Barack Obama's views on abortion?


His plan has been to lie to Christians by co-opting them, fully support abortion up until conception and if a baby is accidentally born alive after a botched abortion to have it killed instead of letting life live. Sad, but true. He just signed into law by means of Executive Order, a provision to fund foreign abortions again under the guise of "family planning" after a ban Bush put on. This signature will cost Americans 160 million every year and cost the life of millions of unborn. If we cherish life, it should be for all including the most innocent of humanity. Socialists are disgusting, what do they have against poor foreigners anyways?


He is fully in favor of abortion, including late term. He's so freakin liberal and he is in full control. Strap yourself in for the OPR Express (Obama, Pelosi,Reid). There's no stopping them until we are fully socialist. And yes, all those left wing dumbasses will shout us conservatives down for being hatefilled warmongers but the operative word is dumbass and that's what that bunch of screwballs truly are. They'll get theirs soon enough when this novice we've put in the White House proves he's in way over his head.


This is the good one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fi6SEW98o... Obama's record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion -- a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called "too close to infanticide." Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed that he would not want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" because of a crisis pregnancy -- hardly a welcoming attitude toward new life. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/con... Gianna is a Christian. Her life was given to her by the grace of God. She shouldn't be walking, but more miraculous still- she should not even be alive. Gianna's biological mother was 17 when she had a saline abortion in her third trimester. Many Americans don’t realize it is legal to have an abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. After being burned alive for approximately 18 hours in the womb from the saline solution, Gianna was delivered alive in a Los Angeles County abortion clinic. Her medical records state, "born during saline abortion"...this is what caused her Cerebral Palsy. http://www.giannajessen.com/EPK/bio.html In April, the annual report of Planned Parenthood Federation of America revealed that the abortion giant had a total income of $1.02 billion—with reported profits of nearly $115 million. Taxpayers kick in more than $336 million worth of government grants and contracts at both the state and federal levels. That’s a third of Planned Parenthood’s budget


Obama would fund any abortion, any stage of pregnancy, & if the child were some how born alive during an abortion he would not allow medical treatment for the infant and it would die.


He's pro-abortion and has just released the taxpayers' money to the world to fund abortions everywhere!

He will probably never have an abortion, but thinks women have the right to chose to keep the baby, put the baby up for adoption or have an abortion. Pro-choice.


Since he cannot become pregnant, he probably doesn't have a personal view. For women in his state of Illinois, he is pro-choice and wants abortion to remain safe.


Hes pro - choice, Nobody likes abortion. Nobody wants to have one, nobody wants anyone else to need one. And nobody has the right to make that decision for anyone but themselves. So long as pregnancy occurs within the body of a human being, she has the absolute right to stop the process.

What are some medically necessary reasons to have a third trimester abortion?
I think that a C-section in the third trimester would be more appropriate and less emotionally traumatic on the mom. So many of these "deformities" can be fixed by then, and if not so what?

How is abortion an example of market failure?

Why is abortion an ethical dilemma?
1. Because for many religious and non-religious people, they think a fetus should be considered a human being like everyone else. And that abortions are murder. Scientifically speaking, the fetus isn't viable outside the womb which means it really shouldn't be considered a life. 2. I am pro-choice...

Which is better/less traumatic, a clinical abortion or taking the abortion pill?
