Skip to comments.Obama dances around topic of Gosnell
Posted on 04/17/2013 8:47:00 AM PDT by Morgana
In a Today Show interview taped earlier in the week but airing today, President Obama was (thankfully) asked about Kermit Gosnell. Watch video beginning at 3:00
Savannah Guthrie: Have you been watching the Gosnell trial. Its a Philadelphia abortion doctor accused of gruesome crimes. Are you following it, and do you think it animates a larger debate about abortion in this country?
President Obama: I am familiar with it. I cant comment on it because its an active trial.
What I can say is this. I think President Clinton said it pretty well when he said, Abortion should be safe, legal and rare.
If an individual carrying out an abortion, operating a clinic, or doing anything else is violating medical ethics, violating the law, then they should be prosecuted.
Well, duh on that last sentence. Was there a question? Guess Obama had to clarify. And, of course, Obama has had no trouble discussing Trayvon Martin, despite the fact his is an open case.
In a follow-up interview Obama needs first to be asked why he thinks abortion should be rare. The word rare has been removed from the Democrat platform, because it obviously implies there is something wrong or bad about abortion. In fact, Kate Michelman, former president of NARAL, recently wrote she thinks abortion should be the opposite common.
Another question: Does Obama still believe, as he did in 2002, that all abortionists are to be trusted? In a post the other day I included the written transcript of Obamas opposition on the Illinois State Senate floor to a bill forcing abortionists to provide medical care to abortion survivors. Here is the audio, pretty chilling:
Yet another question: Does Obama still oppose a law, as he did as state senator, protecting abortion survivors against infanticide?
Interesting that NBC Philadelphia, where Gosnell is being tried, made this section of Obamas Today Show interview into a lead story, using the photos at the top of this post.
There would be no curiosity about Obamas position on Gosnell did not everyone know Obama supports infanticide.
Too bad he more than likely aborted his son as well.
zero dances around everything - party, party, party (while the country burns)...
In this case if Obama had a Dad, he would look like Gosnell. The followup theoretical question of course, “Mr. President, do you think a baby should be saved in a situation such as this? Secondly, what if your 15 year old daughter had entered a clinic such as this and was treated in this manner? Would that concern you and would you think that there should be legislation to limit abortions and keep parents better informed? Yes, and finally, what if your 15 year old daughter was one of the employees in an abortion clinic? Would you be concerned for your own daughter and what she is being exposed to? America is wondering.
“zero dances around everything - party, party, party (while the country burns)...”
Sounds like this was a staged and scripted question and answer to ensure no other reporters will ask him about Gosnell. Now that he has spoken “definitively” on the subject, the media will move on.
“likely aborted his son as well”.
-——yeah, another “house o$ horrors” detail o$ Gosnell’s
“practice” was that virtually ALL his murders were perpetrated on BLACK babies.Not really so surprising, considering 1. His majority “client base” was Black, and
2. The eradication o$ the black underclass has been a cornerstone o$ “reproduction rights” since Margaret Sanger
introduced her eugenics theories into the social $abric and
made them acceptable social practice.
Good point, #4.
The media moves on and so does Obama.
I mean, there are more serious things he has on his plate,
$or example, the all-consuming laser-beam attention he has to pay to the Boston bombing, which may even manage to keep him
away $rom the links until the case is “settled”.
what’s to dance around, Mr. Prezident?
the only bill you introduced in your short Illinois legislative term was, we are told, a proposal to legalize killing babies after they are born (so long as the parents wanted them aborted)
this is the ONE, and only, issue you felt important enough for us sheeple to know about, that you didn’t manage to cover it up
you should have lots .,..of good things...to say about these baby murders
Zero has been dancing around Dead Fetus’s for years.
We all know his views on leaving living babies in clothes hampers until they die.
Lucky for Obama that the Boston bombs did not detonate near a Maternity hospital full of pregnant women.
How could he possibly spin the killing of pregnant women and their unborn babies by a maniacal murderer?
BTW - under Obamacare Gosnell will be a Government employee.
