I wouldn’t have believed it if I had not heard the audio clip on Hannity today. The issue is abortion and the person who spoke the words is Obama.
Here’s the transcript from Barack’s campaign stop in Pennsylvania on Saturday (hat tip: Ben Smith at Politico.com):
….”Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.”
So God’s biggest miracle is merely a punishment if one of Obama’s daughter’s becomes pregnant? And a an STD falls in the same category?
Well, Obama, look closely, THIS IS NOT CALLED PUNISHMENT, it’s called a baby:

And just for the record, Obama and those who believe the protection of babies from their mother’s behavior is “anti-choice”—
We, who wish to protect the lives of unborn babies, do believe in choice. It’s just that those, who fight to the death (literally) for abortion rights, mischaracterize where the choice occurs.
When a woman decides to “sleep” with a man and have sex (or not), the CHOICE IS MADE.
Otherwise, all you have is an excuse to kill an innocent, defenseless human so that the mother 1) doesn’t have to live with her choice to have sex (In Obama-speak, that means punished) and 2) does not have to be inconvenienced in her career, life, marriage, schooling, etc.
Women have cited ‘social reasons’ , not mother’s health or rape/incest as their motivation in approximately 93% of all abortions.
From Obama’s own campain website —
Here is what Obama has done for teen pregnancy:
Voted YES on $100M to reduce teen pregnancy by education & contraceptives
Voted NO on notifying parents of minors who get out-of-state abortions
and what he has done for the unborn:
Voted against banning partial birth abortion
Trust women to make own decisions on partial-birth abortion
So by Obama’s standards, the rewards for his daughters (and yours and mine if he is elected) will be government sponsored contraceptives, abortion, and abortion without the consent of parents. What utopia for teens! No responsiblity, no “punishment”, no parents, just big-Nanny government helping you with your “choices”!
And by Obama’s standards, the rewards for the unborn are murder at the whim of your mother and government, murder by torture (called Partial Birth Abortion by liberals), and no defense of the right to live.
At the very least, Obama’s “punishment” statement was callous and insensitive; but I believe his impromptu comments convey more what is inside the man.
I’ve said it before, we elect a man of such perverted logic at our own peril.
