SCISSOR SISTERS:

Michelle Obama Under Fire for 2004 Letter Defending Partial-Birth Abortions (Steven Ertelt, 5/21/08, LifeNews.com)

Michelle Obama, the attorney wife of pro-abortion Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama, is coming under fire for a letter she wrote defending partial-birth abortions. The 2004 letter, written to help Obama in his campaign for his U.S. Senate seat, opposes the ban on the abortion procedure.

In February 2004, Michelle Obama penned a fundraising letter to help her husband Barack raise funds for his Illinois-based Senate seat.

The letter contends the federal ban on partial-birth abortions "is clearly unconstitutional" and "a flawed law."

Though the three-day-long partial-birth abortion procedure involves the partial birth of a baby during the middle trimester of pregnancy and the jamming of scissors into the back of her head to kill her, Obama's wife describes it as "legitimate" medicine.


Since killing babies is a business, she wants their cut.

It is worth pondering whether Obama will face this question (about his support for infanticide) before October or not. Which reporter will ask him before McCain does? Evan Thomas? Helen Thomas?

He already has the NARAL endorsement, but what about that of Peter Singer?
