Obama Tells NARAL: We Celebrate Roe, 55 Million Abortions
Life News ^ | February 6, 2013 | Steven Ertelt

In a videotaped address to the NARAL pro-abortion group last night, President Barack Obama told the organization that he celebrates the Roe v. Wade decision, that has resulted in well over 55 million abortions.

“Tonight we celebrate the historic Roe v. Wade decision handed down 40 years ago, but we also gather to recommit ourselves to the decision’s guiding principle: that women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care,” Obama said in the videotaped message.

Tonight we celebrate the historic Roe v. Wade decision handed down 40 years ago, but we also gather to recommit ourselves to the decision’s guiding principle: that women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care,”

According to a Politico report, Obama thanked outgoing NARAL president Nancy Keenan, calling her abortion activist “a friend and counselor to me and my administration,” and welcoming the new NARAL president, left-wing political activist Ilyse Hogue.

“And I welcome Ilyse Hogue, who we know will continue Nancy’s legacy of outstanding leadership of this organization,” Obama said.

During the dinner Hogue said abortion is “foundational to every other thing we want to achieve” in a video released Tuesday by NARAL called “Meet Ilyse Hogue.”

“That’s why they attack our right to choose when, and how, and with whom we have a family,” Hogue said in the video, referring to those who disagree with her politically. “That freedom to decide is foundational to every other thing we want to achieve for ourselves, our families, and our country.”

“The rise of the tea party has surfaced a real desire on the part of a few to ramp up restrictions on women’s freedom and to do what I call ‘stuff the genie back in the bottle,’” Hogue said in the video.

However, Hogue accused Mitt Romney of wanting to have rape victims “thrown into the water.”

“While [Paul] Ryan allows lesser candidates like Akin to carry the water on extreme views held by the right-wing patriarchy, his equally radical views become mainstreamed as his anti-woman credentials are embraced by the party leadership. If we don’t stop laughing and start drawing hard lines around scientific reality, how many Akins will it take before we see a President Romney ordering rape victims thrown into the water to see if they float?” Hogue wrote last year.

Keenan and Obama have been buddy buddy since his election in November 2008 and Obama invited Keenan for one of the Christmas parties it hosted on December 14. The logs show Keenan and the president of Planned Parenthood getting big access.

Obama hosted a party with 661 total people at the “Holiday Reception” party honoring Christmas and other holidays in mid-late December. Keenan received an invitation to the event, which took place during the late afternoon and evening hours.

But that was hardly the only time Keenan has been to the White House since Obama took it over in January 2009. Keenan has been a guest at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue a total of 10 times during Obama’s 13 months in office.

Keenan primarily enjoys celebrations and ceremonial visits with the president — as she also appeared at a luncheon in January 2009 celebrating Obama’s election and a cocktail party on February 18, 2009.

The NARAL leader made her way to the White House again in March when Obama signed the executive order to force taxpayers to pay for embryonic stem cell research and she appeared at a May event to tout the confirmation of the nomination of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

And Hitler was vilified for killing only 6 million Jews. I guess it makes a difference if you are a democrat.

The total murders from abortion is rapidly approaching the total world-wide deaths in WW2. There must be a special place in Hell for promoters and celebrants of that genocide.

Not trying to hide their hidden agenda. Well, we've all known all along it is alot more than just killing babies, it's is foundational to so much more that is, well, transformational as well.

Odd that Obama and his ilk can’t see that figure as
55 million TAXPAYERS!

The “rich” are having to pay that share too.

Abortion was rampant in Germany prior to the Nazi parties rise to power , Hitler however needed more cannon fodder and made having large families more attractive...

"that women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies" Let me rephrase that for him. "that women should be able to make their own choices about their babies". Thats what you're really saying. Because the child in the womb has his own body and no one is giving him/her a choice about it. What a bunch of crap. It's NOT your body, it's someone elses body. Why doesn't someone call them on this?? Don't let them get away with this phraseology. Again, it is NOT your body. It's someone elses. As for the "host" argument, it is totally mute. The child cannot live without assistance outside the womb any more than he/she can without it inside the womb. Last time someone debated me on this it got down to them saying the unborn child is merely a "parasite" living off the host. What a pathetic view of unborn life and a symbol of this culture of death!

I'm certain he was celebrating his spawn:

The President of the United States celebrating 55 million deaths in 40 years while pushing for gun control where there were less than a tenth of a percent number of those deaths. The abortion statistic alone, celebrated by Obama, sure makes Adolf Hitler seem like an amateur.

This must be satire. I doubt even Obama would use the word celebrate in regards to Roe-Wade. After all, if abortion had been legal in 1961 Hawaii, I suspect his mother would have avoided the “punishment of having a baby” (him). Then again maybe it’s not satire as he did once describe having a baby as a punishment, so certainly he would see the establishment of Roe-Wade as something to celebrate.

Most men have to shave their beards every morning. It's likely that obama has the added necessity of having to shave his horns at least once a day.

I agree with Obama on this one:

the decision’s guiding principle: that women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care

Every thoughtful FReeper should take this same stand. The baby isn't the woman's body. Biology proved this well before Roe v. Wade.

Let's extend this same thinking to every baby girl and wait to ask her whether she wants to be killed in the womb. 18 is the age of majority and the young woman can decide then, perhaps with the input of her mother and father if he's around.

Since half the genetic material is from the father we should demand the same rights for men - to have a choice in the abortion issue.

I'm making this my guiding principle on Roe v. Wade

So was Obama. Does he sense any cognitive dissonance as he speaks about killing babies? Does he think, “but for the grace of God there go I”?
