IS THIS WHY THE WHITE HOUSE REPORTEDLY REQUIRES UNBORN BABIES BE REGISTERED FOR VISITOR TOURS?
The Blaze ^ | 05/09/2012 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 05/09/2012 11:27:27 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

The Washington Free Beacon is reporting something sure to offend pro-choice advocates — namely, that the White House seemingly requires pregnant visitors to register their unborn babies separately, as a distinct human beings. But is there a more plausible explanation? We think we might have found it.

Let’s start from the beginning. The Free Beacon references White House Visitors Office director Ellie Schafer in an email explaining the process for registering an “unborn fetus” while on a White House tour:

We have received a number of calls regarding how to enter security information for a baby that has not yet been born.

Crazy as it may sound, you MUST include the baby in the overall count of guests in the tour. It’s an easy process.

LAST NAME: The family’s last name

I would think this requirement might violate HIPAA regulations.

So it's just what I thought: you have to register everyone coming in for a White House tour. If you're pregnant and plan on bringing the new baby on the tour you have to register that baby even if not born yet. I guess you don't have to register if you plan on leaving the kid in the car while you take the tour.

How long in advance do you have to schedule a White House tour?

But, but but... I thought an unborn baby is not considered a person... otherwise, why would Obama vote NOT to protect him/her when he was a State Senator?

I thought it was that you had to register the baby in advance if the baby would be born by the tour date. Makes sense to me.

Still ... with terrorists posing as pregnant women, it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea to make sure you’ve got the same number of pregnancies entering and exiting the WH tour.

The rest of the article:

Schafer apparently wrote this in an email to a Capitol Hill staffer Tuesday morning, concluding:

Once, the baby is born, you should send an email to the VO inbox with the tour request ID number, the baby’s given name, their actual birthday and gender. We can then update the newborn guest’s information within our system. Please note that any changes to security information for newborns must be made at least 48 hours in advance.

The president is pro-abortion, and has said he does not want his daughters to be “punished with a baby“ if they ”make a mistake.” Seeing as abortion is acceptable in such circles primarily because an unborn baby is not considered an independent person, it is quite ironic that the White House is seemingly adamant about registering them as distinct from their mothers.

Or is it?

Another explanation for the email is possible. Consider that this could be the White House requiring women who pre-arrange tours before their babies are born to register them in the above manner if they plan to bring them along on the tour after they are born. This seemingly matches with the last paragraph, which asks for updated security information “at least 48 hours in advance.“ It would also make sense that the baby would then have an ”actual“ birthday and ”given name” as that same paragraph references.

What do you think?

No, that’s so Obama doesn’t decide to see what they taste like!

The WH just wants to make sure it’s a REAL baby, not a pound of C-4.

I don’t know, but wouldn’t be surprised that perhaps this was started to give parents a keepsake for the coming baby ... to make note in a scrapbook, etc. that he/she was at the White House... of course it could be money, as you say, or inflation of the visitor numbers... we’ll probably eventually find out when this started.

Fascinating.

So, the left really does know when an in-womb, pre-born child becomes a person.

Miracle on 34th Street: The White House, an official branch of the Federal govt., recognizes unborn children as human beings.

“Liberty” to do what?

Not sure any liberty is being given-up here. To my knowledge, there exists no particular right to an anonymous or unregistered White House tour.

This is absolutely great!
The federal government, by this regulation, is stating that a fetus is a human being from conception. A fetus with a name is thus a baby and entitled to the protections of the Constitution.

What if you just dont want to f***ing tell them...

This is the weirdest new rule they want to impose on the American people...

How is any of this relevant to anything?

FIRST NAME: “Baby” as a first name
MIDDLE NAME: NMN as in No Middle Name
DOB: Use the date you are submitting the request to us as their birthday
GENDER: if the parents know put that gender down if not, you can enter either M or F as we’ll ask you to update it at the time of birth
SOCIAL: As they will not have a SSN and are under 18, you will not need to enter this field. Again if the spreadsheet asked for a social enter 9 zero’s (not the word nine zeros but 000000000 and yes it happens!)
CITIZEN/CITY/STATE: The citizen, city and state should be entered the same as the parents

Once, the baby is born, you should send an email to the VO inbox with the tour request ID number, the baby’s given name, their actual birthday and gender. We can then update the newborn guest’s information within our system.

I don’t plan to visit the White House while the current occupants are there. Pres. Romney can downsize ridiculous regulations along with many other things he can downsize, like the recent glut of new federal employees. Last in, first out.

How does registering the baby make it not C-4?

They don’t want to have to remove the diaper from an unregistered baby and fondle them, er, i mean search them for bombs. You know how Americans are always using their babies as human bombs.
