Born Alive but not Viable?
Obama states that for infants who are "still temporarily born alive", and already children, that they should not be deemed as children under the law because it would limit abortions. So he favors stripping their rights and letting them die. on page 86 of the above transcript in the Illinois State Senate, he deems the living child outside the mothers womb as still a "pre-viable" fetus. He also questions "if this is a child..." To him, being born alive despite an abortion is not the same thing as being viable.
Keeping a baby alive is a "burden"?
Obama said on p 86 that it was a "burden on the doctor (that says you have) to keep alive even a pre-viable child as long as possible and give them as much medical attention as is necessary to keep that child alive".
Senator O'Mally adeptly pointed out in refutation that "the Constitution does not say that a child born must be viable in order to live and be accorded the rights of citizenship. It simply says that it must be born. And a child who survives birth is a U.S. Citizen.
Obama states that it is a "burden on the doctor (that says you have) to keep alive even a pre-viable child as long as possible and give them as much medical attention as is necessary to keep that child alive". He also questions whether children born alive as a result of a failed abortion... are even children.
Obama deems Viability as "alive". What of those already alive but not "viable"?
What about children who are born with severe disabilities who need oxygen, heart monitors, or who cannot feed themselves.? Are they not citizens deserving of equal protection under the law? Or what of people in comas, or with alzheimers that can't feed themselves, or MS, or Parkinsons, or Lou Gherigs????
Obama would say no, because his position is that someone who is born, but is not viable is not worthy of equal protection and the right to medical assistance because they are not a person under the Constitution. This is his reasoning. And people wonder why they question his character!!!!!!
In Obama's reasoning, these people are not children and should not be afforded Equal Protection under the Constitution.
Look out if you are: Born Alive but not "viable" , but also if you are any of the following
In a Coma
Have a pacemaker which keeps your heart beating
On Dialysis so you don't die
Taking drugs so as not to die from a deadly disease
Unable to feed yourself
blind, deaf, and mute
have severe deformities that limit your self-sustenance...
Following Obama's legal reasoning, these people are born alive and are not "viable" or people under the law.
After reading President-Elect Obama's postion on what constitutes a person and amplifying his position to its fullest extent, can you name one historical leader who shared the same views on "viability"?
It was Nazi Eugenics that declared such people as "life unworthy of life."
Time to look past the smiles.
