Infanticide is defined as "the killing of an infant." The law punishes same.
A Good Samaritan sees a human in distress and helps them. Not rising to the moral heights of same is not punished. Those that do rise to such heights are glorified.
Hence, America is glorified. We help the least of these when we don't have to. But you can't see it from Chicago's South Side.
So let's get down in the weeds of Presidential politics, and Obama's opposition to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, but first:
For Democrats, "its all about sex" and "not being a convicted felon" is the test for qualification for leadership.
Which brings me to one of my favorite subjects: How Republicans let the MSM steal issues from them by overreaching and letting the libs move the goalposts and defining the issue. William Bennett called this the Death of Moral Outrage and defining deviancy down.
Obama opposed a law that would have made it mandatory that a physician give life saving aid to a baby outside the womb that survived an attempted abortion.
Obama says that prior law required same.
For the sake of argument, let's assume that.
So, we are content to rely upon a law that would require an abortionist to save the life of a life that is living because he failed in his attempt to kill for pay.
We are supposed to rely upon the weight of the Hippocratic Oath upon a person who can be sued for malpractice in their failure to kill a baby, to risk further liability for negligence in saving the baby's life he, seconds ago, tried to snuff out?
Obama is a dead presidential nominee man walking, much as McGovern, Carter '80, Mondale, Dukakis, Gore and Kerry were, but we heard the din of the 20-year pew-parked butt months earlier than Come Home America, there he goes again, I'll raise your taxes, I'll let out convicted murderers, The world will end in 10 years, and International tests.
The least of these Obama.
Get ready to join them.
Fellow Redstaters, let's not let the MSM define this issue as whether Obama favors Infanticide.
Let's define the issue as the Good Samaritan.
