    Pregnant mom casts ballot for Obama while in labor

    THORNTON, Ill. (FOX Chicago News) -

    A very pregnant Galicia Malone was so determined to participate in her first presidential election that she took a few cleansing breaths and put those labor pains right out of her mind until her vote was cast.

    Cook County Clerk David Orr reports that Malone, 21, started having pains in her back and pelvic area around 3 a.m. Tuesday. By the time she drove from her mother's house in Richton Park, where she stayed last night, to New Life Church precinct in Thornton, the pains were five minutes apart.

    "This is my first baby, a girl, and I wanted to make a good impression," Malone said. "I want to have a story to tell her."

    Malone, whose due date isn't until Nov. 10, was en route to South Suburban Hospital when we caught up with her.

    "The pains are pretty steady but my doctor says to think of it as getting ready to give life," she said.

    Though she is against abortion, Malone, of Dolton, said her belief that women should have the right to make their own decisions prompted her to vote for President Barack Obama.

    "I just agree with more of his policies than with (Mitt) Romney's," she said.

    "I grew up on Sesame Street and PBS," she said. "He wants to cut that. What will my daughter grow up on?"

    The Sun-Times Media Wire contributed to this report.

    I'm sure this means 3 votes for Obama, one from mom, one from the baby and one from the placenta.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    Well, at least she's in Illinois. Even if Romney were ahead there, the machine would be sure that Obama would win.

    How about she grow up on what everyone else over the age of 40 grew up on, instead of federal indoctrination paid for with tax dollars, you dolt!

    Anyone besides me note the lack of any interview of a proud father in this story?
    Olde-style, states' rights conservative. Ask if this concept confuses you.
