Obama reaffirms his commitment to abortion:
President Barack Obama is marking the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark decision on abortion by calling the procedure a constitutional right he’s committed to protecting.No need to worry. That "right" needs little protection. It's being exercised so enthusiastically in New York City that almost 60% of pregnancies of black women end in abortions.
And it's so sacrosanct in Pennsylvania that a depraved butcher can operate a human slaughterhouse for decades on end with no interference from any governmental authority.
You'd almost think, in light of all the genocide and infanticide in the news, that Obama might make a different speech, perhaps even stressing the need to work toward fewer abortions, or at least lament the horrifyingly high numbers.
But this is the abortion president. His statement paid lip service to "prevention" but played up the women's rights angle and ignored the fact that for many women and girls, abortion is used as birth control. (See video.)
In Obama's view, our daughters won't be able to realize their dreams unless they can kill off their babies:
Obama also said in a statement Saturday that he remains committed to policies designed to prevent unintended pregnancies. And he called on Americans to recommit themselves to ensuring that, in the president’s words, “our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”Oh yeah, and killing our offspring in the womb is, you know, a family matter:
Obama said the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion affirmed what he called a “fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.”"Family matters," such as the great aunt who brought her 17 year-old niece into Kermit Gosnell's house of horrors? The baby, a large, perfectly-formed, breathing boy, was coldly executed after birth and "Sue" nearly died:
The doctor released Sue to go home 13 or14 hours after she arrived. Her aunt described her condition: “She was moaning. She was standing up. She was like holding her stomach, doubled over.” She remained in pain for days and could barely eat. When she developed a fever, her aunt called Gosnell. He instructed the aunt to take her temperature and asked if she was taking pain medicine he had given her – which she was. But he did not have her come in to be checked out. And he did not suggest that she go to a hospital. When Sue started throwing up a few days later, her grandmother contacted a different doctor, who told her to get to a hospital right away.But thank goodness, Sue and her family's private choices were entirely unhindered by government interference, and young Sue, not punished with a baby, was left free to pursue her dreams.
Sue was admitted to Crozier-Chester Hospital. Doctors there found that she had a severe infection and blood clots that had travelled to her lungs. According to Kareema Cross, who spoke to the aunt, Sue almost died. The teen stayed at the hospital for a week and a half. She became extremely thin and took months to recover, according to her aunt.
