In 2004 Michelle Obama wrote a campaign letter on behalf of her husband’s campaign saying that killing a child when it was halfway out of the womb was a “legitimate medical procedure” (thus clarifying her husband’s idea of what constitutes a “surgical” attack) and that bans on it were “clearly unconstitutional and must be overturned.”

Her statements speak for themselves, of course, but it’s worth considering who else they might speak for: At the time she wrote the letter, Michelle Obama was serving as executive director for community affairs at the University of Chicago Hospitals.
