President Barack Obama – the first sitting president to address Planned Parenthood Federation of America – issued a proclamation on Monday marking National Child Abuse Prevention Month.
“In the United States of America, every child should have every chance in life, every chance at happiness, and every chance at success,” Obama said in the proclamation.
In March 2003, then-Illinois’ State Senator Obama chaired the committee that considered the Born-Alive Infants Protection bill (SB 1082), which he voted to kill.
According to the National Right to Life Committee, the state legislation that Obama voted against is almost identical to the federal legislation that protects children who survive an abortion that became law in 2002.
