Update: Some thoughts below...

Senator Obama says he does not support infanticide and that his votes against previous versions of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA) were based on
a) his objection to language in the bill that he believed would have overturned Roe v. Wade, and
b) laws already in place in Illinois that would protect such an infant.

Senator Obama also says that the final version of the bill (HB 984) that was passed in Illinois after he'd left, is a version he would have also supported because the bill now included sufficient protections for physicians and pregnant women.

Jill Stanek presents links to Senator Obama's votes on BAIPA here. She also has a list of the reasons he has given for opposing BAIPA.

Whether or not you want to characterize Senator Obama as "supporting infanticide", there's no question that he's a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade.
