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.

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.
