Barack Backing Down on Abortion? The Obama-Relevant Interview

Commentary on the recent Relevant Magazine interview with Barack Obama:

Obama saying he voted against the "Born Alive" bill because these babies' safety was already guaranteed is like a southern senator saying he voted against the Civil Rights Act of 1964 because the Declaration of Independence already says all men are created equal with certain inalienable rights. In the end, it is a bold-faced lie, the pro-choice equivalent of Hitler saying he would only occupy the Sudetenland (after all, this was really Germany anyway!) and stop his advances there. In the end, Obama's 24/7 anytime, any reason, abortion voting record is much closer to ancient Greece's policy of carrying off unwanted newborns to a hilltop to die, than it is to any type of anti-abortion legislation. For would it not be easier for the Obama Democrats to take one small step forward to the Greek's way of thinking than one step backward to ban partial-birth abortion?
