Nonpartisan FactCheck: Obama "Misleading" on Infanticide Vote

Pro-Life Org Says Watchdog Group Vindicates Criticism of Obama on Abortion

Washington, DC ( -- A leading pro-life organization that has been holding Barack Obama accountable for his votes against a bill that would provide medical care for newborns who survive failed abortions says it has been vindicated. The nonpartisan watchdog FactCheck said National Right to Life was right about Obama's record. The FactCheck web site of the University of Pennsylvania reviewed the debate over the Illinois Born Alive Infants Protection Act. It confirmed NRLC's claims that Obama has been misleading when he's said he voted against the bill because it didn't mirror a national version that had language making it neutral on Roe v. Wade.

Responding to the conclusions, NRLC legislative director Douglas Johnson told, "The most important finding by is their statement that NRLC is correct and that 'Obama is misrepresenting the contents of SB 1083." "'s investigation validated the documents that NRLC uncovered and released on August 11, documents that prove that in March, 2003, Obama killed a bill in his state Senate committee that was virtually identical to the bill that passed without a dissenting vote in Congress," he explained. Obama had responded to those documents claiming National Right to Life was "lying" about his record.
