The Real Obama Record on Infanticide

by Ramesh Ponnuru

The president and his apologists have been covering it up for years, the latter often including “fact checkers.” On the homepage today, I go through how the Washington Post gets the story wrong – and calls pro-lifers’ accurate claims false.

During Obama’s presidential campaign, pro-lifers argued that so extreme was his devotion to abortion that he was willing to support a right to infanticide. This charge is absolutely true. He believed that certain infants — those at an early stage of development — should not have legal protection, and he believed it because he thought it would undermine the right to abortion.

I saw the Post’s item via The Weekly Standard’s Mark Hemingway, who zeroes in on another part of the “fact check.”
