AFLC Advisory Board Member Andrew McCarthy writes about Obama’s “abortion extremism” in the context of the HHS mandate: “What I personally find most offensive about the HHS mandate is the shock with which it has been met. Why? This is who Barack Obama is. There is no reason to be surprised by this. He is not being pulled to extremes by his base — he is the one doing the pulling. Obama’s abortion extremism is such that, as a state legislator, he opposed protection for — I’ll use his words here — ‘that fetus, or child — however way you want to say describe it’ when, contrary to the wishes of the women involved and their abortionists, there was ‘movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead.’ Babies were inconveniently being born alive, self-styled health-care providers carted them off to utility rooms where they would be left to die. That is infanticide, plain and simple. In Illinois, people tried to stop this barbarism by supporting ‘born alive’ legislation. Barack Obama fought them all the way.” Read McCarthy’s National Review Online article here.
The American Freedom Law Center opposes Obama’s unconstitutional HHS mandate, including the most recent “compromise” version. More to follow.
