Rather than parse out, rehash, and regurgutate the various discrepancies Obama and his staff have peddled since the gaffe at the Saddleback Forum with Rick Warren, I thought it would be much more useful to utilize the official records from the Illinois State Senate.
Obama’s 100% rating from NARAL is not an accident. For someone claiming to care about the ‘least’ among us – that rating demonstrates Obama’s open hostility toward the first unalienable right noted in our nation’s Declaration of Independence: LIFE.
Review the following, and make up your own mind. Is he the one?
Senate Bill 1095, Born Alive Infant Protection Act

Senate Bill 1662, Born Alive Infant Protection Act
Go here to view Obama’s “no” vote in the Senate Judiciary Committee on March 6, 2002. (ABC inadvertently coped bill #1663, a companion bill. The vote for the Born Alive bill, #1662, was identical.)

Obama’s “no” vote on the IL Senate floor, April 4, 2002
Senate Bill 1082, Born Alive Infant Protection Act
Democrats took control of the IL Senate with the 2002 elections. They sent Born Alive to the infamously liberal Health & Human Services Committee, chaired by Barack Obama.
As can be seen on the Actions docket, Obama held Born Alive on March 6, 2003, from even being voted on in committee. It is also important to note from the docket that on March 13, 2003, Obama stopped the senate sponsor from adding the lately discussed clarification paragraph from the federal BAIPA, to make the bills absolutely identical.
