Obama on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade

From Obama’s remarks regarding Roe v. Wade:

Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.

So what do you call ObamaCare, then if it’s not an intrusion in the private and very PERSONAL matters of an individual and his family?

I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.

His support is through Planned Parenthood which are nothing more than government funded abortion clinics that are aimed at minorities, especially Black Americans. Employees at these facilities are on tape saying as much. This is government sanctioned genocide, primarily against the Black community.

And there is no constitutional right to an abortion, just as there is no constitutional right to force any American to buy anything, including health insurance.

And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

What he’s saying is that the “burden” of unwanted pregnancies and abortion falls squarely on the woman and men are off the hook. He’s on record as saying that he didn’t want his “daughters punished” with an unintended and unwanted baby. But there is no “punishment” for the father, no burden for him. He can go his merry way and “fulfill his dreams” while the mother is left to the decision of abortion or the “burden” of caring for a child and her dreams are lost. Her future is bleak, that of being an single parent.

The burden of single parenthood is shouldered by the mother and the taxpayers with little or no consequences for the father. I see nothing in his statement – aside from “encouraging healthy relationships” and how he plans to do that from the WH is a mystery to me – that promotes the responsibility of fathers in this matter. On the contrary in fact, by this part of his statement: same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.

    By the way. Der, I just noticed that I hadn’t added you to my blogroll yet. Total omission has now been corrected.

      Thank you Sami. I had a good day but now up with a fussy baby – I think he’s finally settled down for a little while… fingers crossed.

    Great fisking. Yeah, his words betray a lot of truth that many just don’t seem to hear. He says, in the context of abortion, that he wants daughters to have the same opportunities as sons.

    What, opportunities to kill babies?

    His statement betrays a belief system in opposition to, well, reality itself. Women and men already have the same opportunities in the US. If anything, a lot of stuff is stacked against the guys nowadays.

    Is he implying that the unavoidable biological fact that only women get pregnant automatically puts them at a disadvantage in life? This demonstrates an unappreciation at best, and a hostility at worst, to the basic function of the family unit, don’t you think?

      Excellent points! You picked up on things I missed and that makes it more complete for others and gives others something more to think about, too.

      Thank you!

    You have touched on a subject here that I am passionate about and I find very few bloggers willing to blog about Abortion. My hat’s off to you for having the courage to post this Article.
