Someone sent me a YouTube video today about Obama voting against the Born Alive Infants Protection bill 3 times in Illinois. What do you think of this?

Hi Rachel, he is Christian. I know you are young, so chalk this one up to the old phrase, "don't believe everything you read - especially on the internet". :-) You may be interested in this Christians For Obama community site called Matthew25.

I had never heard of this before, but it sounds pretty awful - the kind of thing nobody would support. So I did a little research and found on Put Away Falsehood , which is a website that addresses Obama's position on Christian issues, this informative response from Obama about that:

“The email rumor that’s been floating around is that somehow I’m unwilling to see doctors offer life-saving care to children who were born as a result of an induced abortion. That’s just false. There was a bill that came up in Illinois that was called the “Born Alive” bill that purported to require life-saving treatment to such infants. And I did vote against that bill.

The reason was that there was already a law in place in Illinois that said that you always have to supply life-saving treatment to any infant under any circumstances, and this bill actually was designed to overturn Roe v. Wade, so I didn’t think it was going to pass constitutional muster.

Ever since that time, emails have been sent out suggesting that, somehow, I would be in favor of letting an infant die in a hospital because of this particular vote. That’s not a fair characterization, and that’s not an honest characterization. It defies common sense to think that a hospital wouldn't provide life-saving treatment to an infant that was alive and had a chance of survival.”


Suprisingly, right now the Christian vote is split evenly between McCain and Obama (with Obama in a slight lead). The evangelical vote is decidedly behind McCain.
