Barak Obama recently told a crowd in Pennsylvania that he didn’t want his daughters to be “punished” with a baby if they made a “mistake.”
What does this statement reveal about Obama? First of all, anyone who would equate a baby with “punishment” obviously has no sense of the intrinsic value of every human life, and sees that life only in a utilitarian sense. In other words, a baby can be a gift or a punishment according to the judgment of the adults in control. With this line of thinking, one may see an elderly relative as “punishment” for adult children who didn’t plan adequately for their parents’ old age, and may subsequently feel justified in terminating their lives. This is the same ideology that has produced some of the most terrible genocidal horrors in world history.
Secondly, teaching his daughters that they can get an abortion if they get pregnant will lead to less resistance to the temptation of pre-marital sex. After all, If we make a “mistake” it can be fixed.
In this one statement Obama reveals an evil ideology, poor parental skills and unsound judgment. We need more than that to lead the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
