Obama and the Children

…The logical import of [State Senator] Obama’s vote against BAIPA is that . . . once a baby has been targeted for abortion it thereafter has no inherent right to the food, comfort, and medical care provided to other babies born alive…

On January 16, 2013, President Barack Obama made a speech in Washington D.C., in which he announced executive orders and proposed legislation to “reduce . . . gun violence in this country.”  Surrounded by four children as props, Obama stated: “These are our kids.  . . .  And so what we should be thinking about is our responsibility to care for them, and shield them from harm . . . .”  He continued:

This is our first task as a society, keeping our children safe.  This is how we will be judged.

. . . and most of all, I think about how, when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now . . . .

Obama made similar remarks on December 16, 2012, in a speech at the Sandy Hook interfaith prayer vigil for the victims of the elementary school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.  At that event he said:  Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?”

Obama’s remarks are inconsistent with his conduct while a state senator in Illinois.  On August 11, 2008, Yuval Levin wrote about what Obama did as a state senator in a post on National Review’s The Corner entitled “Obama and the Born Alive Act“…

…At the prayer vigil, Obama read the names of the murdered Newtown children.  I don’t know how many of the babies who survived abortions and were left to die were given names.  I don’t know if Obama would care.
