Kevin Vance, CMC Class of 2008, CI veteran, and friend to Claremont conservatives in general, currently writes as an editorial assistant at The Weekly Standard. On Wednesday, Kevin published an analysis of Barack Obama's pro-abortion extremism that should be mandatory reading for all potential voters in November--especially potential Obama voters.
"In March 2003, registered nurse Jill Stanek submitted a statement to the Illinois Senate Health and Human Services committee in which she reported that infants who survived abortions at her Oak Lawn hospital were sometimes "taken to the Soiled Utility Room and left alone to die." Stanek was lobbying the committee to approve the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act of 2002, which would have recognized any infant born alive after an abortion as a human being deserving legal protection. Barack Obama, then the committee chairman, defeated the bill with his fellow Democrats in a 6-4 party-line vote."
