Robby George, professor at Princeton University, was on the Bill Bennett’s “Morning in America” show this morning.  George spoke at length about Obama’s extreme position on abortion.

The audio of the interview can be found here.  Click on the Robby George link on the left-hand side.

Robby George recently wrote an article called, “Obama’s Abortion Extremism” here.

Here are a few highlights of that article.

For starters, he supports legislation that would repeal the Hyde Amendment, which protects pro-life citizens from having to pay for abortions that are not necessary to save the life of the mother and are not the result of rape or incest.

He has promised that ”the first thing I’d do as President is sign the Freedom of Choice Act” (known as FOCA). This proposed legislation would create a federally guaranteed ”fundamental right” to abortion through all nine months of pregnancy, including, as Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia has noted in a statement condemning the proposed Act, ”a right to abort a fully developed child in the final weeks for undefined ‘health’ reasons.”

In an act of breathtaking injustice which the Obama campaign lied about until critics produced documentary proof of what he had done, as an Illinois state senator Obama opposed legislation to protect children who are born alive, either as a result of an abortionist’s unsuccessful effort to kill them in the womb, or by the deliberate delivery of the baby prior to viability.

He has co-sponsored a bill-strongly opposed by McCain-that would authorize the large-scale industrial production of human embryos for use in biomedical research in which they would be killed. In fact, the bill Obama co-sponsored would effectively require the killing of human beings in the embryonic stage that were produced by cloning. It would make it a federal crime for a woman to save an embryo by agreeing to have the tiny developing human being implanted in her womb so that he or she could be brought to term.

And finally,

What kind of America do we want our beloved nation to be? Barack Obama’s America is one in which being human just isn’t enough to warrant care and protection. It is an America where the unborn may legitimately be killed without legal restriction, even by the grisly practice of partial-birth abortion. It is an America where a baby who survives abortion is not even entitled to comfort care as she dies on a stainless steel table or in a soiled linen bin. It is a nation in which some members of the human family are regarded as inferior and others superior in fundamental dignity and rights. In Obama’s America, public policy would make a mockery of the great constitutional principle of the equal protection of the law. In perhaps the most telling comment made by any candidate in either party in this election year, Senator Obama, when asked by Rick Warren when a baby gets human rights, replied: ”that question is above my pay grade.” It was a profoundly disingenuous answer: For even at a state senator’s pay grade, Obama presumed to answer that question with blind certainty. His unspoken answer then, as now, is chilling: human beings have no rights until infancy – and if they are unwanted survivors of attempted abortions, not even then.

Scroll down for a video interview about his unbelievable procedure.

Following are 10 excuses Obama has given through the years for voting “present” and “no” on the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act, or BAIPA.

10. Babies who survive abortions are not protected by the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution.

9. A ban to stop aborted babies from being shelved to die would be burdensome to mothers.

8. Aborting babies alive and letting them die is a doctor’s prerogative.

7. Anyway, doctors don’t do that.

6. Obama apparently read medical charts and saw no proof.

5. Aborting babies alive and letting them die is a religious issue.

4. Aborting babies alive and letting them die violates no universal principle.

3. Introducing legislation to stop live aborted babies from being shelved to die was a political maneuver.

2. Sinking Born Alive was about outmaneuvering that political maneuver.

1. Introducing Born Alive was a ploy to overturn Roe v. Wade.

After Obama’s had a few weeks to think about his wonderful comment made at Saddleback and the inspiration for this blog, he offers this retraction (well, sort of, maybe, I don’t know, kinda) to his “above my pay grade” comment.

Via the AP:

Obama says he was too flip on abortion question

“Probably. …What I intended to say is that, as a Christian, I have a lot of humility about understanding when does the soul enter into … It’s a pretty tough question.

“And so, all I meant to communicate was that I don’t presume to be able to answer these kinds of theological questions,” he said in an interview broadcast Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

So tell me what he believes again?  He’s a had a few weeks.  Nice non-answer to the initial non-answer.

If you want to know what Obama really believes about abortion you need only to visit a YouTube video and Jill Stanek’s site.  He has no problem articulating his support of partial-birth abortion and voting for infanticide.

Obama says, “On this issue [abortion] I will not yield and Planned Parenthood will not yield”.  Watch the short video:

In the same article Biden takes a brave stand… and then gives the typical nuanced answer that all unborn babies love:

“I’m prepared as a matter of faith to accept that life begins at the moment of conception. But that is my judgment,” Biden said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “For me to impose that judgment on everyone else who is equally and maybe even more devout than I am seems to me is inappropriate in a pluralistic society.”

We’ve all heard this line for years.  It’s so noble.  Let’s play a little substitution game.

“I’m prepared as a matter of faith to accept that murder is wrong. But that is my judgment,” Biden said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “For me to impose that judgment on everyone else who is equally and maybe even more devout than I am seems to me is inappropriate in a pluralistic society.”

Joe could pop plagiarism in that first sentence, too.  Now that would be convenient.

“As Vice President of the United States I promise not to impose my views on anyone!  Except my last dogmatic statement, which actually is a view!”

By the way Joe and Barry, this is Trig.  He’s a person, not an “it” and not a “choice”.

Fred says:

We need a president who doesn’t think that the protection of the unborn or a newly born baby is above his pay grade!

Fred, this blog couldn’t agree more!

Let us never forget how Obama hmms and hwws through this question.

Remember, he knows what he believes, but he cannot figure out how to make it palatable for this group of Americas.  That explains his serial case of the  ahhhs.

He’s just a chameleon.

Here’s the non-answer, “above my pay grade” comment:

Here is a nice video from CNN showing his true belief- infanticide. (Notice his courage in voting “present” first, then “no”.)
