Skip to comments.Video of Obama Saying Young Women Should Not be "Punished With a Baby" - Video
Posted on 03/31/2008 5:56:54 PM PDT by blogsforthompson.com
In Johnstown, PA, Barack Obama had this to say in response to a woman who begged him to "stop these abortions" -- (Watch Video)
"I have two precious daughters - they are miracles... Look, I got two daughters - 9 years old and 6 years old. 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."
This slip reveals just how callous Barack Obama is toward innocent human life in the womb. It fits with his vote as an Illinois State Senator to keep Live Birth Abortion legal there -- allowing babies that survive an attempted abortion to be simply set aside and allowed to die. The outlawing of this practice - that amounts to infanticide - was not even opposed by the far-left National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL), but it was opposed by Barack Obama.

I guess that BHO was a punishment to his mother also.
This is truly shocking and shows just what a seriously radical far Left POS Obama is. “Punished with a baby,” is a horrible phrase. That it came out of the mouth of a man who has a serious shot at being the next POTUS is truly scary because of what it reveals about Obama as a human being.
This country should not be punished with Obama.
You would think that he would realize that he probably wouldn’t be here if abortion had been legal when he was conceived.
Just like his mother.
Whatever his views on abortion, Hussein most probably is talking here about sex education not abortion.
I guess it is no suprise that a man willing to countenance infantacide in the form of his opposition to the born alive infant act would describe a baby as “punishment”. But I guess that adoption or marriage would pose a threat to the legal rationale for his sacrament called Roe vs Wade.
I wish somebody would ask this sick moron the following question:
Mr. Hussein Obama, if you would not want to punish your daughters with having a baby, which form of abortion would you want your GRANDCHILD to have? A saline abortion where your GRANDCHILD gets scalded to death? A D&E where your GRANDCHILD gets its arms, legs, head, and torso ripped apart and put together in a pan to make sure all the parts are there, or would you have your GRANDCHILD’s body dangled outside of your daughter’s vagina while a doctor shoves a pair of scissors into the back of your GRANDCHILD’s head allowing the “doctor” to suck out your GRANDCHILD’s brains so your GRANDCHILD’s empty body can drop harmlessly into a pan?
Or, Mr. Hussein Obama, what if your GRANDCHILD was born alive during a botched abortion? Would you still want your GRANDCHILD put in a pan and put on a shelf in a closet to scream itself to death to die from exposure? Huh? Huh, Obama?
What a barbaric and sick son of a bit%%! C’mon Media! Do your job!
I guess he’s not angling for the single mom vote.
"Objective truth, schmective truth! If it serves my needs, good. If it doesn't serve my needs, bad." Thus spoke Obama.
The World According to Obama: If you want a child, then a child is a miracle. If you don't want a child, then a child is a punishment.
His mother was from Kansas, she could have paid a visit to “Tiller the Killer” and all her problems would have been over.
This is both stunning and sick.
Someday, I hope his girls understand what he said - that their mother was "punished" by their birth!!
Words simply fail!!
Why are we shocked by what he said? Fellow Freepers, he is never going to change your minds or vice versa. The only way he can change, is if he truly lets Jesus Christ into his life./Just Asking - seoul62.......
Wow. A winner in the first post.
Please don't stop publicizing this. This is just plain warped.
Just can't find that picture of Martin Sheen holding up the baby as a human shield anywhere...
Post #3: Good observation.
This is the mindset.
Nevermind there is no law forcing a woman to keep and raise a baby she doesn’t want or cannot afford. Adoption is always an option.
Possibly. It would be great if somebody (Obama?) would supply the full context.
The question raised was about abortion.
So it’s been reported, but, even more that most politicians, Hussein tends to ignore the question asked, instead answering the question he WANTED asked. Close listening to his reply supports the probability that he simply sequed off into the less violently controversial area of sex education. Certainly, because his answer addressed pregnancy AND STDs, it would make sense that this was a sex education statement rather than an abortion statement.
I agree with everything you wrote, Wolfstar.
Obama's people have been out today trying to "clarify his comments". But he said "punished with a baby" and in the next breath equivocated pregnancy with STDs--your comment sounds pretty clear to me, Senator.
I never thought of a baby as punishment. I feel sorry for his kids.
My four year old son is capering about in his underpants and a t-shirt right now, a big grin on his face while he plays hide and seek with his mother.
If his joyous giggles are “punishment,” I’ll take it, all day every day for the rest of my life.
