Obama pro-abortion: Doesn’t want his daughters ‘punished with a baby’ if they make a mistake

Posted on March 31, 2008. Filed under: Politicians, Politics |

Wow! So if Obama’s girls make a mistake, he doesn’t want his daughters punished with a baby. What a statement!

Well, here’s a radical concept for Obama and his girls: How about accepting personal responsibility for your actions and doing the right thing? If you decide to have sex out of marriage and end up pregnant,  face the consequences. Have the baby and give it up for adoption instead of killing it!!!

“Stop these abortions.”
By Ben Smith

Out in western Pennsylvania, the issue of abortion can strike a nerve. Democrats there often describe themselves economic liberals and social conservatives who favor gun rights and oppose abortion rights.

So, it was not unusual to see a woman stand near the end of Barack Obama’s town hall meeting in Johnstown, Penn., and offer a hurried, passionate plea for him to “stop these abortions.”

The ability of politicians like Obama to thread the needle between their own support of abortion rights and their constituents’ opposition can be deteminative in Pennsylvania. And Obama, who supports abortion rights, handled the questioner deftly.

“This is a very difficult issue, and I understand sort of the passions on both sides of the issue,” he said. “I have two precious daughters – they are miracles.”

But politicians must trust women to make the right decisions for themselves, he said.

“This is an example where good people can disagree,” the Illinois senator said. “The question then is, are there areas that we can agree to that everybody can get behind? We can all agree that we want to reduce teen pregnancies. We can all agree that we want to make sure that adoption is a viable option.”

The exchange appeared to be prompted by Obama’s earlier comments that he does not favor abstinence-only education, but rather comprehensive sexual education that includes information on abstinence and birth control.

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.”
