With the controversy over Barack Obama's opposition to the IL Born Alive Infant Protection Act, Gianna Jessen is speaking out. She survived a late-term saline abortion and comments,
Can you imagine not giving babies their basic human rights, no matter how they entered our world? My name is Gianna Jessen, born 31 years ago after a failed abortion. I'm a survivor, as are many others...but if Barack Obama had his way, I wouldn't be here.Here's an older more intimate video with Jessen commenting on her experience as a survivor:
Unfortunately, Barack Obama voted four times against affording these babies their most basic human right. I have serious concerns about Senator Obama's record and views on this issue, given he voted against these protections four times as a state Senator. Just as abuse victims share their stories to educate the public, fight for the common good and hope that as a result politicians do what's right, I felt it was important to come forward and give these new born babies a voice.
I am living proof these babies have a right to live, and I invite you to learn more about Senator Obama's record on this important issue.

On this topic, Dr. Melissa writes about her own experience:
A note on late-term abortions: My sons were born at 24 weeks gestation. One died after contracting MRSA at the hospital. One received the best medical care and is now in 5th grade. These are children. People. The notion of having a botched late term abortion and then allowing that child to die, or actively kill the child is beyond barbaric.
Radical leftists like Obama embrace eugenics and a life inconvenienced by unplanned children. It is horrifying. What birth defect do you have that makes you unworthy? What circumstance created your inconvenient existence?
Among all the justifications for Obama's opposition to Born Alive, what I find missing is some indignation on behalf of those who have been killed after surviving an abortion attempt. As a government official (i.e., a minister of justice), one would think that Obama would have been outraged by what was going on in his state and take immediate action. Of course, we now know the truth from those whom Obama accused of lying.
