Here is then Illinois State Senator Obama on the Born Alive bill introduced to provide medical care for infants who survive abortion:
“And if we’re placing a burden on the doctor that says you have to keep alive even a previable child as long as possible and give them as much medical attention as — as is necessary to keep that child alive, then we’re probably crossing the line in terms of viability.”
Here is what that “burden” looks like in the real world.
It’s ugly and heartbreaking, but it shouldn’t be surprising. The purpose of abortion is to kill the child, not just end the pregnancy. (After all, all pregnancies will end after no more than 9 months.) The goal of abortion is to rid a mother of her child’s existence. As horrendous as putting a living baby in a plastic bag and tossing her in the trash, how is this different from what was going to happen: either dismember the baby, limb by limb, or deliver her body, stab a hole at the base of her skull and suck out her brains? The mother is suing. Why? The only difference is the baby’s cause of death, not the outcome itself.
On another note, how does “Constitutional Scholar” Obama get abortion law so wrong? (That’s even setting aside his creepy “burden” rhetoric. Can’t burden the abortionist. Wouldn’t want him to render aid to a baby when he could be raking in the dough while scraping out the uterus!) Obama said, “Viability is the line that has been drawn by the Supreme Court to determine whether or not an abortion can or cannot take place.” I hope you didn’t teach that in your con law classes, Mr. President.
Justice Blackburn wrote in Roe vs. Wade, “If the State is interested in protecting fetal life after viability, it may go so far as to proscribe abortion during that period, except when it is necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother. ” (emphasis mine)
Doe vs. Bolton, the sister case to Roe, explains the definition of health is very expansive: “medical judgment may be exercised in the light of all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age – relevant to the well-being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health.”

Oh, and for “medical judgment” read “what the abortionist who’s getting paid by the ‘sick’ mom.”
So, in effect, Roe and Doe said states can prohibit abortions of viable fetuses unless the abortionist said it’s okay.
But that was 35 years ago, and the courts have not stayed silent and the law hasn’t remained stagnant. Recent cases that have regulated what states can and cannot “undue burden” standard, i.e. a regulations (like informed consent or parental notification laws) cannot place an undue burden on the mother.
As for viability, it’s a moving target. In 1973, a baby was viable at 28 weeks. Today that’s 23 or 24 weeks and in some cases earlier. What will happen when medical technology makes it possible for an embryo to be nurtured in an artificial womb? Will pro-abortion groups lay down their arms and start knitting booties for artificially gestated babies?
Not on your life. Because abortion is not about ending pregnancies. Abortion is about killing babies.
