Did Obama really make 9 month abortion legal?

Asked by Mom2BDec2010 (2666points) September 2nd, 2010

I went to the store today and overheard two women saying he did this and that when the girl has the baby they give the baby a shot and just leave it there to die. Is that true?

Lol! Wow…..

Remember that game ‘Telephone’ we played in middle school? This is how uninformed people blow things out of proportion.

Stop believing stupid shit you hear. My god some people are so fucking stupid. And stop shopping at Wal Mart without ear plugs.

@blah_blah I didn’t think it was completely true. And I wasn’t at Walmart, lol.

janbb's avatar

@Mom2BDec2010 It’s not true at all, just to be perfectly clear.

Is this a real question? You do realize the president doesn’t singlehandedly make laws, right?

@janbb Get him back here, now!
Uninformed people running their chops. Same people that say he doesn’t have a birth certificate. Damn, my uninformed sister in law will be emailing me this garbage now.

1. The president doesn’t make laws.

2. If there were any change to Roe v. Wade, or anything that came close, you’d smell the smoke from the burning Planned Parenthood clinics a mile away.

No, that is absolutely not true. What you are describing is not a “9 month abortion” it is murder and it remains illegal.

I kinda thought 9 month abortion was called induced labor… It sounds bad but think about it for a moment.

Anyway, the law as far as I know states that if the baby takes a breath, it’s a human being and killing it is, well, murder and thus very illegal.

@nikipedia :: The plan was to write script that told you who was in your fluther that hadn’t been around lately. This went horribly wrong. It pretty much clicked every link and button. It deleted my old account. I gave up on the script.

Lisa added my account back. But I’m liking the new digs. I’m not sure if I will go back to the old account.

Yeah, by allowing pregnancy. He’s one smart fellow.

Of course they don’t shoot the baby. They put it in a sack and drown it.

@Lightlyseared

Either that or they toss it into the Nile and let the crocodiles eat it…

@DominicX Hey, if it was good enough for Moses…

PUH-LEEZE! Where do people keep pulling this from? Last I heard, it was called “live-birth abortion.” I understand that there are people that are anti-abortion, but I can’t take them seriously when they pull lies out of their ass.

chyna's avatar

@Dr_Dredd Apparently you can’t fix stupid.

janbb's avatar

@chyna I do lurves ya, girlie!

Lightlyseared's avatar

@chyna of course you can! Put stupid in a bag and drown them (or whatever). That’ll fix it real good.

Jeruba's avatar

Maybe we could give it a shot and leave it there to die.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Jeruba : I keep trying that. It refuses to die. Doesn’t even sleep.

DeanV's avatar

@DominicX I guess you could say that some are in denile about such a law.
If someone else has a better pun for that please speak up. It’s too good to pass up.

As for who had the idea the OP speaks of, I’m pretty sure it was this guy. Seriously.

This sounds like another Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin stupidity message. It is right up there with death panels and the birther idiots.

This is not entirely true but is rather an exageration of what has taken place. The SC decision to uphold the ban on partial birth abortion has resulted in some bizarre practices. To insure a fetus is not born alive some institutions will use a lethal injection prior to the abortion to insure the fetus is not born alive. It is not much better than what you heard but legally acceptable.

Either way, it’s not an Obama issue.
