Front Royal, VA, 10/15/08 – Steven Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute and pro-life leader, has stated publicly that Sarah Palin is correct in accusing Barack Obama of supporting infanticide.
Mosher cites Obama’s vote against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act, which was written to protect all infants born alive, including those who were born as the result of a failed abortion attempt. According to documents released by the National Right to Life Committee, Barack Obama opposed the bill, even though it contained a "neutrality clause" that stated it was not intended to overturn Roe vs. Wade.
According to Mosher, Obama has continued to evade the question of his abortion stance, which culminated in his famous words in the Saddleback forum, where he claimed that the answer to the question of when life begins is above his "pay grade." "I believe that there is more to Obama’s evasiveness than indecision or confusion," Mosher says. "It is not that the Illinois Senator can’t answer the question of when babies get human rights; it is that he won’t, primarily because he has already voted to deny any and all rights to some newborns."
"Obama’s flippant answer might have elicited chuckles at a Harvard symposium," he continues. "but the evangelicals in the Saddleback audience were not amused. They knew that Pastor Warren was asking a serious question that deserved a serious answer. They also knew that a man who would sit in the Oval Office is supposed to be able to answer such queries."
