Is Obama's support of infanticide less controversial than Akin's position?

U. S. Senate candidate Todd Akin said something stupid in a radio interview and has said he made a mistake. He is being called upon to step out of politics by the liberal media--and not a few conservatives. Meanwhile Barack Obama has opposed legislation that would provide protection for babies who survive abortion. He has not apologized for it--and he is being lauded by the same liberal media and the conservatives who presumably oppose him but are ignoring is pro-infanticide record.

In 2002, Obama voted against the "Born Alive" bill, which would protect babies who have been aborted who give indications that they may be alive.

In 1997, he voted against a bill banning partial birth abortions.

Having a silly view of how female bodies respond to rape is worse than refusing to prevent infanticide. Go figure.
