WASHINGTON, D.C., August 18, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Barack Obama and National Right to Life went head-to-head over Obama’s abortion record, and Obama blinked. The Democratic presidential candidate now has backed off his claims that pro-life advocates were “lying” over his vote to kill a bill that would have prevented infanticide in Illinois. Obama’s campaign now acknowledges he “misrepresented” his position.

Obama’s decision to sabotage the Illinois Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA) has repeatedly come back from the grave to haunt his campaign. Pro-life advocates, and National Right to Life, have hounded Obama over his “no” vote to BAIPA while a state senator in 2003.

BAIPA was a bill intended to clarify that any baby who is entirely expelled from his or her mother, and who shows any signs of life, is to be regarded as a legal “person” with all the rights thereto, whether or not the baby was born during an attempted abortion.

After appearing at Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church on Saturday to debate John McCain, Obama sat down to an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) correspondent David Brody.

Brody asked Obama to respond to questions over why he voted “no” to BAIPA, since Obama voted down the Illinois version, which was exactly identical to a federal bill passed unanimously by the US Senate. Obama became visibly irritated and accused NRTL of “lying” about his record.

“They have not been telling the truth,” Mr. Obama said. “And I hate to say that people are lying, but here’s a situation where folks are lying.”Click here to read entire story.
