"Catholic" Professor Endorses....

a man who voted to permit infanticide.

From Catholic News Agency:

"Doug Kmiec explains Obama endorsement at DNC forum."

For a thorough examination of Senator Obama's position on the "Born Alive Infant's Protection Act," go here:

"Senator Barack Obama and his campaign staff have made many conflicting claims in an attempt to "explain" his opposition in 2001, 2002, and 2003, while an Illinois state senator, to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, legislation to provide legal protection for babies who are born alive during abortions."

For those unaware of this issue, Senator Obama voted to kill the Illinois "Born Alive Infant's Protection Act." In 2002, an identical bill passed the US Senate unanimously. That means no Senator, not Barbara Boxer, not Ted Kennedy, not John Kerry voted against it. Not even NARAL opposed it. From the National Right to Life website:

"The law guarantees that every infant born alive enjoys full legal rights under federal law, regardless of his or her stage of development or whether the live birth occurred during an abortion."

And Professor Kmiec endorses a man who opposed this!
