"I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby," Obama said. -- 'Them' refers to his daughters.
Stumbled across the following response from an individual online: Any man who thinks of children as punishments should volunteer for castration.
What's wrong with our society today? When less than 1% of abortions are completed due to rape/incest, how do we justify our position of pro-choice? If you cannot take care of baby, don't have sex. I know this sounds naive, but babies are gifts, not punishments.
Obama sucks. Period. His speech last night was shit as well. Way to outline your plans; sounded like a damn Democrat rally from 20 years ago.
Barack Obama's mother was an unmarried @ 18 when she gave birth; his Grandmother subsequently raised him while his mother tended to other affairs. Does Barack feel he was a 'punishment'? If only he was POTUS at the time of conception to provide counseling about the best way to take care of such a 'mistake'....this election cycle might have been completely different.
By the way, I'm perfectly willing to concede that women can take responsiblity for their own bodies by way of abortion without government intervention if the pro-choice crowd can simply acknowledge that the act of abortion ends a life. Also, overturning of Roe v Wade would only send the matter of abortion legality back to the states, it would not make abortion illegal across the US.
