Unbelievable: Despicable Attack by Obama on Abortion Survivor

I have to stop thinking that I have heard and seen everything. Every day something else comes out that tops something else. Last night, I made a post about a columnist who suggested that it was "immoral" for Sarah Palin to bring her disabled son into the world.

Now, Obama attacks an ad made by 31 year old Gianna Jessen who survived an attempt to snuff out her life through a saline abortion. First, please watch this discussion on Fox News about the Born Alive Infants Protection act which Obama voted AGAINST. This is a good dialogue to comprehend what it is all about.

EDIT 9:51am: Do watch this all the way to the end - it is nearly 10 minutes and gets contentious but stick with it. At one point, Alan Colmes - Sean Hannity's co-host, asks why nurse Jill Stanek did not seek medical care for the baby with Down Syndrome that she rocked until it died following a botched abortion. The answer is very simple: It was not law at the time to treat such babies. The abortionist - a doctor capable of giving life-saving care - would not help the baby and other doctors would intervene. This was practice at certain hospitals and clinics until President George Bush signed a law requiring medical care for these babies who survive abortion (thanks to Stanek). Alan Colmes did not do his homework.

Now, here again is the short ad by Note also, that this is not a McCain sponsored ad, but done by a private organization.

Here is the disgusting response by Barack Obama who calls the ad above one of "McCain's sleaziest ever". What is truly sleezy is Obama not accepting responsibility (lying) for what is on public record and trying to make McCain and Jessen look like liars (when McCain was not even involved in the making of the video). Even if McCain were involved with the video, Obama's record stands on it's own.

Gianna Jessen had something to say about the above ridiculous ad:

Statement from Gianna Jessen: “Mr. Obama is clearly blinded by political ambition given his attack on me this week. All I asked of him was to do the right thing: support medical care and protection for babies who survive abortion – as I did 31 years ago. He voted against such protection and care four times even though the U.S. Senate voted 98-0 in favor of a bill identical to the one Obama opposed. In the words of his own false and misleading ad, his position is downright vile. Mr. Obama said at the recent Saddleback Forum that the question of when babies should get human rights was above his pay grade. Such vacillation and cowardice in public policy almost left me to die and no one should have to go through what I went through.”

Jill Stanek is a nurse who was fired after exposing to the public this barbaric practice. It was heartbreaking to read how she and other nurses, before she blew the whistle, would take turns holding these babies as they died so they wouldn't be left on a cold shelf alone. Here is her response:

"It is despicable, repulsive and beneath contempt that Barack Obama would attack Gianna Jessen. She is a courageous abortion survivor and living miracle who would not be with us today if Obama's policies had been in place when she was born. Mr. Obama continues to mislead the American people on this issue, he voted four times against medical care and protection for babies who survive abortions in the Illinois State Senate, while the U.S. Senate was voting 98-0 to pass an identical bill. Mr. Obama needs to come forward and tell the American people that he understands people like Gianna Jessen, and that he will support and enforce Born Alive Infant protections -- that these are living, breathing human beings who have come into our world and deserve protection in the law and should receive medical care at health care facilities. These babies have the same rights as the rest of us."
