Palin: Obama said, “Punished With A Baby”; PLUS Startling Abortion Legislation Waiting For Obama Presidency

The transcript of the speech can be found here. The key quotes include:

It’s hard to think of many issues that could possibly be more important than who is protected in law and who isn’t – who is granted life and who is denied it.  So when our opponent, Senator Obama, speaks about questions of life, I listen very carefully.

I listened when he defended his unconditional support for unlimited abortions.  He said that a woman shouldn’t have to be – quote – “punished with a baby.”  He said that right here in Johnstown –“punished with a baby” – and it’s about time we called him on it.  The more I hear from Senator Obama, the more I understand why he is so vague and evasive on the subject.  Americans need to see his record for what it is.  It’s not negative or mean-spirited to talk to about his record.  Whatever party you belong to, there are facts you need to know.

Senator Obama has voted against bills to end partial-birth abortion.  In the Illinois Senate, a bipartisan majority passed legislation against that practice.  Senator Obama opposed that bill.  He voted against it in committee, and voted “present” on the Senate floor.  In that legislature, “present” is how you vote when you’re against something, but don’t want to be held to account.

Most troubling, as a state senator, Barack Obama wouldn’t even stand up for the rights of infants born alive during an abortion.  These infants – often babies with special needs – are simply left to die.

In times like these, with wars and a financial crisis, it’s easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life.  And it seems our opponent hopes that you will forget.  Like so much else in his agenda, he hopes you won’t notice how radical his ideas and record are until it’s too late.

There are the world’s standards of perfection … and then there are God’s, and these are the final measure.

This is a powerful message to send to a candidate that only wants to talk about the economy and how anyone who does not like him is a racist.

Nevertheless, he is on record going a step further. A good friend sent me the following information:

[There is] a bill “lurking” in the U.S. Congress called the “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA, S. 1173).  According to The National Organization for Women this bill would “sweep away hundreds of anti-abortion laws [and] policies.”

Douglas Johnson, legislative director for the National Right to Life Committee says, “I am aware of only one congressional sponsor of the ‘Freedom of Choice Act’ who has said anything publicly, in the past year or so, to indicate that he would like to see the bill enacted soon.  That sponsor is the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, Sen. Barack Obama.”

Mr. Johnson noted that Sen. Obama, in a speech to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund on July 17, 2007, stated, “The first thing I’d do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act.  That’s the first thing that I’d do.”

Here’s a link to a site that has the entire bill:

Sen. Obama, the American people are interested to hear you defend your record on your reckless and callous regard for human life. Poor judgment and empty character continue to define Barack Obama.

Question: Barack, what if your mom decided you were just a punishment and killed you or if Michelle decided your kids were just an inconvenience and killed one of them?

H/T Hot Air.
