The warrant was issued on behalf of 12 patients whose records were found in the trash outside the facility by an anti-abortion group in February and turned over to police, Carley said.

Andrew McCarthy on "Why Obama Really Voted For Infanticide?"
The shocking extremism of that position — giving infanticide the nod over compassion and life — is profoundly embarrassing to him now. So he has lied about what he did. He has offered various conflicting explanations, ranging from the assertion that he didn’t oppose the anti-infanticide legislation (he did), to the assertion that he opposed it because it didn’t contain a superfluous clause reaffirming abortion rights (it did), to the assertion that it was unnecessary because Illinois law already protected the children of botched abortions (it didn’t — and even if it arguably did, why oppose a clarification?).
What Obama hasn’t offered, however, is the rationalization he vigorously posited during the 2002 Illinois senate debate.
John McCormack reports that prolife Obama supporter Doug Kmiec didn't know in late May (or at least acted like he didn't know) Barack Obama supports using tax-dollars to pay for abortions. How could he not know that?
Dana Goldstein is still arguing Obama voted against Illinois' Born Alive legislation (without linking to the text of the bills again) because it was about partial-birth abortion. She's doing this despite the fact that Obama, his campaign and pro-choice organizations have made numerous excuses for his votes and never once have mentioned partial-birth abortion. Dana Goldstein is lost in the forest and for some reason is unable to look around and realize no one is with her. The American Prospect should be embarassed for having her on the payroll.
