Michelle Obama: partial-birth abortion is "legitimate medical procedure"
By Gina Miller

On the eve of the most critical presidential election in our nation's history, it is worth revisiting the despicable words of the wife of the criminal occupier of our White House. On Tuesday, Life News posted an image of a 2004 fundraising letter Michelle Obama wrote in support of Barack Obama (or whatever his name is), as he ran for the U.S. Senate in Illinois.

In the letter, Michelle Obama laments the "rise of conservatism in this country..." Oh, the horror! That awful conservative ideology is rising, pushed by those scary people who love God and our nation as founded, who cherish our Constitution, our freedom, our national sovereignty and American heritage!

She is specifically "concerned" with the rise of conservatism as it "relates to women," or more correctly, as it relates to a woman's ability to kill her pre-born baby. It is not early-term abortion she is talking about (although that is bad enough), but barbaric, partial-birth abortion.

From the American Family Association Journal, here is a basic description of it:

In a nutshell, a partial birth abortion typically involves an abortionist reaching into the uterus, grabbing the unborn baby's leg with forceps, and pulling the still-living baby into the birth canal, except for the head, which is deliberately kept just inside the womb. The abortionist then sticks scissors into the back of the baby's skull and spreads the tips of the scissors apart to enlarge the wound. He then removes the scissors, inserts a suction catheter, and sucks the baby's brains out. The collapsed head is then removed from the uterus.

This gruesome, obscene "procedure," visited on middle trimester to near full-term pre-born babies, was outlawed by congressional legislation signed by President George W. Bush in 2003. The Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the federal partial-birth abortion ban in 2007, but in her 2004 letter, Michelle Obama was pushing for Barack Obama's U.S. Senate run, in part, so he could help thwart pro-life Supreme Court nominees by President Bush, in order that the partial-birth abortion ban might be declared unconstitutional by a Supreme Court stacked with liberals.

And, we certainly know that Michelle Obama is not going off the range here. She is like-minded with Barack Obama, who was one of the most radically pro-abortion members of the Illinois State Senate, voting repeatedly against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act, which would require doctors to give medical care to babies who survived abortions. He supports letting tiny babies die, if the "doctor" trying to kill them failed to get the job done. Barack Obama is an abortion extremist who does not want any restrictions on abortion at all.

In the letter, speaking of the partial-birth abortion ban, Michelle Obama wrote,

The fact remains, with no provision to protect the health of the mother, this ban on a legitimate medical procedure is clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned.

It's "clearly" unconstitutional? What is "unconstitutional" about requiring life-saving care for a baby who survives an abortion? And, further, in what kind of sick, twisted mind is the abominable, partial-birth murder of a baby considered a "legitimate medical procedure"? Only in the mind of Hell and Hell's minions.

As for the usual arguments about abortion being "acceptable" in cases of rape, incest and to protect the health or life of the mother, these abortion defenses are shown for the fallacies they are by the Association of Pro-Life Physicians in an excellent, concise report titled, "Are There Rare Cases When an Abortion Is Justified?". In answering these pro-abortion arguments, the piece states,

It is easy to prove that these objections to the pro-life ethic are insincere. What if someone brought up these arguments to justify the killing of an infant: "The baby was conceived through rape" — "The infant is deformed and mentally handicapped" — "The mother's health is suffering as a result of her baby." Would anyone who endorses abortion in the womb openly justify the killing of an infant using these excuses? No, they would not. This proves that these objections are insincere and that the heart of the matter is whether the fetus is a living human. If it could be proven that the human fetus is just as alive and just as human as the infant, then these objections would not justify aborting a fetus any more than an infant.

... We should not kill an unborn baby to alleviate the suffering of the mother any more than we should kill her infant to alleviate her suffering. Neither should we commit an abortion of a malformed fetus in order to prevent his or her suffering later in life. Being handicapped is not a capital crime. The intentional destruction of health is not compassionate and it is not healthcare, it is assault. We must not be swayed from our pro-life ethic by emotional appeals that admittedly swell our eyes with tears. Truth and compassion prevent us from this fatal compromise.


The piece goes on to address the issue of ectopic pregnancy and ends up shooting holes in the "health of the mother" and other arguments for abortion.

Michelle Obama's 2004 letter, in which she insanely uses partial-birth baby killing as a fundraising topic for Obama's Senate run, shows her repugnant mind. It is essential that we get out on Election Day and vote this malevolent Obama duo out of our White House. People like Barack and Michelle Obama, who have such utter disdain for innocent human life, would not likely hesitate to embrace murderous tyranny over their fellow man and especially their perceived "enemies."
