Third Presidential Debate: More Flagrant Lies from Obama

During the third presidential debate on the night of October 15, 2008, the topic of Obama's opposition to the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act, a bill to protect infants surviving attempted abortions, was broached.

The following issued forth from the mouth of Senator Obama, and establishes that he is not competent to regulate health care:

"And the Illinois Medical Society, the organization of doctors in Illinois, voted against it. Their Hippocratic Oath would have required them to provide care, and there was already a law in the books."

Obama obviously does not know the Hippocratic Oath. Below is a relevant excerpt which should have prevented him from referencing this ancient health care regulation:

"I will apply dietetic measures for the benefit of the sick according to my ability and judgment; I will keep them from harm and injustice. I will neither give a deadly drug to anybody who asked for it, nor will I make a suggestion to this effect. Similarly I will not give to a woman an abortive remedy. In purity and holiness I will guard my life and my art."

Due to the nature of his practice, an abortionist is in continuous violation of the Hippocratic oath, and obviously cannot be expected to adhere to it.

The Hippocratic oath forbids euthanasia, physician assisted suicide, and abortion. For this reason the classic moral edict is no longer in use in most U.S. medical schools and institutions. Some physicians choose to take this oath independently, but having done so, they may be weeded out of medical practice in the near future, by the demands of government.

The existing Illinois law, to which Obama referred, protected only those babies considered suitable to live by the abortionist who had been employed to kill them. As such, it was not effective in providing protection or appropriate medical treatment to those babies surviving abortion attempts at the Chicago area Christ Hospital, which inspired the federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act signed by President Bush in 2002, as well as the Illinois legislative attempts.

I ask that voters avail themselves of the detailed information and legislative records relevant to this issue by visiting
