"The Constitution does not say that a child born must be viable in order to live and be accorded the rights of citizenship."
Ther error seems to be Obama thinking that the constitutional right to life of a child is contingent upon whether the mother itended the child to be born or aborted.
Once the child is “born alive” his or her status, rights, and humanity have nothing to do with whether the mother wanted the child aborted. For Obama to allude to the original decision or intent of the mother at that point is bizarre. It has nothing to do with whether a living child deserves rights and medical care. The abortion is over at that point and the child is no longer in the mother’s body.
He can’t argue that the mother has a right for the child to die by being denied food, water, and medical care at that point simply because she wanted an abortion which failed.
