I hate--really--to disagree with the esteemed Mr. Wiesel, whose work to help ensure we all remember the Shoah will stand as long as this world does. But can it be that he is not aware that Barack Obama, as a state senator in Illinois, voted four times against a common-sense measure that would ensure that babies "accidentally" born alive after an abortion received all the care any other patient would? The effect of Mr. Obama's votes, blessedly swept away in a flood of votes by his political opponents (the bill passed), would have been to let these babies die alone, without comfort. Mr. Obama's spin machine has tried in many ways--with regrettable success--to blunt the political effect of his (in effect) pro-infanticide votes. But I've read the primary sources, heard Mr. Obama's speeches. He voted against because he didn't want the bill to have a chilling efect on a woman's "right to choose." With all due respect to our President as a human, his policies are an anti-life horror. Our "last hope"? If that is true, Mr. Wiesel, we have no hope. At all.
