Obama Tries to Hide BAIPA Votes
By Dave Andrusko

Sometimes you wonder if the shield most of the media has erected around pro-abortion Democratic Presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama can be pierced. It can, and when it is, Obama’s hypersensitivity to his true stance on life is shown loud and clear.

When an ad ran that challenged him for his votes on Illinois’s Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (BAIPA), Obama responded guns a’ blazing. As a state Senator Obama worked overtime to throttle the measure, intended to protect babies born alive after induced abortions, and has spent the last four years trying to keep this seriously inconvenient truth buried.

The ad that sparked Obama’s ire features Gianna Jessen, a young woman who survived a saline abortion 31 years ago. She tells the audience, “Four times, Barack Obama voted to oppose a law to protect babies left to die after a failed abortion. Senator Obama, please support born alive infant protections. I’m living proof these babies have a right to live.”

The Obama ad went for the throat. In only 30 seconds it illustrated both just how afraid his campaign is of the impact of his votes on BAIPA will have and how willing he is to Photoshop the truth when it serves his purposes.

Important Last-Minute Reminder:
It All Begins With You

By Jacki Ragan

Like all of you, the last few weeks have been immensely busy for NRLC but satisfying beyond words. Like you, we work on behalf of the powerless and the neglected. Late, late into the evening, knowing that what you and I do is making a difference keeps us going more than any jolt of caffeine.

This campaign has gone on so long it almost seems as if it started in the last century. But in a curious way, this long-drawn-out campaign has served a very important purpose. We know with utter clarity that John McCain and Sarah Palin make a powerful pro-life team. Likewise, for all his efforts to hide his voting record and his remarks, Sen. Barack Obama heads a ticket that would give the Abortion Establishment everything it wants, and more.

At this late date, we will not grow weary. I know with utter conviction that each and every pro-life citizen across this great nation will do their part.

An Inconvenient Truth
By Karen Cross

Editor’s note. This month’s guest column is written by Karen Cross, National Right to Life Political Director

Mark Twain is among my all-time favorite writers. Whether we are aware of these aphorisms or not, they are crucial to the manner in which our Movement conducts its noble business: “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything,” Twain wrote. And “You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.”

For us the two really go hand-in-hand. For over 35 years pro-lifers from Maine to California, from Florida to Washington have stood together, the ultimate movement for social justice of our time. Their solidarity on behalf of unborn babies rests on a rock-solid foundation of truth. Abortion not only kills a defenseless unborn child, the ripple effects of her death can permanently disrupt the lives of all who have played a role in her destruction.

If ever there was an inconvenient truth, this qualifies.

This truism is highlighted every four years when our great nation selects its President. The choice has been clear since 1980. It is starkly clear—dramatically clear—in 2008.

It’s clear to us, because we take the time to study the records of the presidential rivals and their running mates. It is not clear, however, to many Americans who have been lulled into thinking that pro-abortion Sen. Barack Obama is a likeable enough fellow who would love to “reduce” the number of abortions. He’s told us that on occasion and his surrogates have made the same point repeatedly.
