If only your parents weren’t punished with a baby.
You know, Obama grew up without a Dad, and I’m thinking that could explain a lot of his ideas and behaviors.
The. Punish he baby separately.
Want to try again?
Wasn’t this during the 2008 election?

that’s some message to send your daughters
Don’t worry Hussein...they both will more than likely end up Lesbians.
besides you don’t deserve grandchildren...
Culture of Death
Exactly. Maybe that is why he cannot bond with males and form coalitions and working groups. He has a lot of seething rage, being abandoned by father and mother.
Too bad America has to suffer, thanks to the mainstresm media.
LIFE IN THE TIME OF OBAMAS ABORTOCRACY
Obama is: an abortion stalwart. And his administration will be: abortocratic.
By Anne Conlon
At Mass on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, while listening to readings that celebrate Marys great Yes to a proposition that would certainly upset life as she knew it, I found myself wondering about the millions of women who, since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, have said No.
Maybe one or two (or three or four) were there at Mass with me, meditating on the unexpected angelic encounter that put human history on a course to salvation. Did any of them regret the answer she had given? Or were they, like so many Catholics who voted for Barack Obama, still unmoved by the Churchs teachinguntouched by the news that the fruit of their womb, too, was blessed?
The advent of the Obama administration brings a familiar darkness back to Washington. As it was with Bill Clinton, it seems that abortion will be the only ground over which our new leader will not negotiate. He promised as much at a Planned Parenthood function last year, and theres no reason not to take him at his word.
Abortion is, in fact, the only issue Obama has a record on. And while the press hasnt trumpeted it, attention was paid after his careless above my pay grade dismissal of Rick Warrens question about when a baby gets human rightsenough so that no responsible voter could claim ignorance of Obamas history of abortion extremism.
Why is there such need to extinguish all significance from the abortion act? A need so compelling that Obama would acquiesce in outright infanticide rather than support legislationproposed in 2003 in the Illinois State Senate, of which he was then a memberto protect the lives of babies who survived bungled abortions? Obama, who gathered a winning coalition under the banner of change we can believe in, said No to this proposition a year after the U.S. Senate unanimously passed virtually identical legislation.
Rescinding the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act (along with all other state and federal abortion regulations) is the kind of change Obama believes in.
He signaled as much by naming Ellen Moran, executive director of Emilys Lista political action committee that raises money only for pro-abortion female candidatesas his communications director. This is more than a sop to womens organizations whose support Democrats take for granted.
This is a statement about who Obama is: an abortion stalwart. And what his administration will be: abortocratic.
As of this writing, no pro-lifers have been named to his cabinet. (Choosing Rick Warren to give the inaugural invocation doesnt count for much. Its simply part of Obamas Im going to make you love me strategy to get even more so-called pro-lifers to vote for him next time around.)
We shouldnt be surprised. At current rates, one in three American women will have had an abortion by age 45. We can assume that while many may regret the decisionnot just among the women themselves, but among fathers, grandparents, and others who were party to itmany more do not.
Eight years of George W. Bushs unabashed pro-life advocacyonce upon a time, he was even called the nations second Catholic presidenthas been an ordeal for those who believe abortion is a right to be celebrated, not a wrong to be scorned. They expect a massive correction in abortion policy, and rhetoric, now that Democrats are in control.
For all we know, however, Barack Obamas unabashed pro-abortion advocacy may be motivated by more than political expedience. Perhaps he has been personally touched by the experience. He has, after all, said he wouldnt want his daughters to be punished with an unwanted baby. Is that how he, or his wife, or his best friend, or someone else close to him now or in the past felt about some pregnancy or otherpunished? Can abortion really make that feeling go away? Or does it, in the end, exacerbate it?
Some of the most powerful testimony about the personal anguish abortion can cause has come from people who support abortion rights. One especially memorable account appears in the late Magda Deness In Necessity and Sorrow: Life and Death in an Abortion Hospital. Denes, a clinical psychoanalyst (and one of the originators of Gestalt therapy), arranged to spend time observing procedures at the same hospital where she had had an abortion several years before. Her book came out in 1976.
In one chapter, after recording the discomfort she had felt while watching an abortion, Denes describes visiting the room where the remains of aborted fetuses are stored. At first, she recalls the unexpected pleasure of putting on surgical gloves and discovering that her hands feel completely protected without any noticeable loss of agility. But pleasure quickly fades as she proceeds to inspect a garbage-can-filled graveyard, using forceps to lift dead little human beings out of paper bucketsthe type in which one buys fried chicken from take-out stores.
Here she is at journeys end: Finally, I lift a very large fetus whose *** is such that, rather than its stiff face, I first see its swollen testicles and abnormally large stiff penis. I look at the label. Mothers name: Catherine Atkins; doctors name: Saul Marcus; *** of item: male; time of gestation: twenty-four weeks. I remember Catherine. She is seventeen, a very pretty blond girl.
Not very bright. This is Master Atkinsto be burned tomorrowwho died like a hero to save his mothers life. Might he have become someday the only one to truly love her? The only one to mourn her death? Nurse, nurse, I shout, taking off my fancy gloves. Cover them up.
Magda Denes had the intellectual decency to call abortion murderof a very special and necessary sort. We dont hear talk of murder these days; even most pro-lifers eschew that hard word. Now the word killing also is being excised from the abortion lexicon, as proponents, including Barack Obama, propagandize the public with arguments that we cannot know for sure when life begins. Covering up the babies isnt enough.
Language has to be covered up, too. And common sense. But the price of this covering up is delusion. And as we have begun to see, a nation that can delude itself about killing, about murder, can delude itself about anythingthe threat of terrorism, the stability of financial markets, the suitability of its new president.
Anne Conlon is managing editor of The Human Life Review.
I hope his daughters don’t reproduce. I certainly never want to hear from them. I figure that given their race, people will be more forgiving than the likes of Amy Carter and Chelsea Clinton. Talk about really butt ugly children ... it makes me believe God made ugliness for a reason.
LOL! Been there, done that.
If you are a Democrat a live birth is a failure of cosmic proportions.
I guess it hasn’t occurred to him that one day (if it hasn’t happened already), Sasha &/ or Malia’s eyes are going to fly open & they will say to themselves “THAT’s what we are- a PUNISHMENT?!”
This man is a sociopath.
We have all been punished with Obama’s mother’s child.
But we don’t want to be punished with a teratogenic presidency! Can we Constitutionally abort it?
It must have been around that time, given the ages of his children.
Obama’s children could rebel by becoming conservatives. Bash Obama all you want, but please ease up on the kids.
OBAMA BULLYING NUNS (Part 1)
Townhall.com ^ | JANUARY 7, 2014 | Chuck Norris
PolitiFact has crowned the promoter in chiefs sound bite for Obamacare the Lie of the Year for 2013: If you like your health care plan, you can keep it. And let me make a prediction that among his top 10 falsehood contenders for 2014 will be a reversal of what he emphatically stated back on Sept. 9, 2009: Under our (health care reform) plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.
Indeed, just a few months later, he reiterated to ABC News: I laid out a very simple principle, which is this is a health care bill, not an abortion bill. And were not looking to change what is the principle that has been in place for a very long time, which is federal dollars are not used to subsidize abortions. And I want to make sure that the provision that emerges meets that test that we are not in some way sneaking in funding for abortions.
Sneaking in funding for abortions, this administration?
Of course, we didnt have to wait a year before we discovered that federal funds were in fact being funneled to provide for abortive services in Pennsylvania and New Mexico.
Then the House and Senate, in secret Sunday sessions, passed an omnibus bill and its provision that overturned the 1988 Dornan amendment, which prevented taxpayer dollars from funding abortions in Washington, D.C. (Tragically, that omnibus bill also appropriated $648.5 million for international family planning funding an increase of $103 million over 2009 funding and contained funding for Planned Parenthood and for the United Nations Population Fund, both of which have pro-abortion agendas.)
Of course, there have been many other underhanded pro-abortion moves by Barack Obamas administration since then, right down to the present. In fact, last week, LifeSiteNews.com ran a piece by Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., explaining abortions rapid growth and funding in and through Obamacare:
Rollout of the Obamacare exchanges reveals that many health insurance plans will subsidize abortion-on-demand. For example, the preliminary data suggests that every insurance plan on the Connecticut health care exchanges will pay for abortion-on-demand. In the most recent example, we learned that 103 of the 112 insurance plans for Members of Congress and congressional staff include elective abortion coverage. Only nine plans offered exclude elective abortion.
(You can go to http://chrissmith.house.gov/uploadedfiles/2013_12-02_floor_flyer_on_member_hc_plans.pdf to view the flier about the nine plans.)
It is clear that there are numerous Obamacare plans that include elective abortion and that billions of taxpayer dollars will be handed out as credits to buy abortion-covering health insurance a clear violation of the Hyde amendments fundamental principle of restricting funds to abortion-subsidizing health insurance plans.
If Obamacare is to encompass the full measure of abortions, Obama knows that he and his cronies must first remove all the stops that prohibit federal funding for the termination of life in the womb. Legislatively, the Dornan amendment was their start. And they will continue to chip away at the Hyde amendment, which prohibits the same through the Labor and Health and Human Services departments for example, with Medicaid.
Obama knows that if his pro-abortion agenda is to win the war on the womb, his administration must also oppose anti-abortion advocates, and chief among those warriors is the Roman Catholic Church. You know the White House isnt dumb enough to confront papal power overtly yet that doesnt stop it from chipping away at the anti-abortion wall by putting nuns and Catholic contraception views and values in its cross hairs.
On New Years Eve, just one day before Obamacares mandate forced nonprofit companies and religion-affiliated institutions across the country to provide contraception and drugs that possibly induce abortions in their employee health care plans, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor blocked the requirement for a care facility for the elderly, run by Catholic nuns who appealed to the high court for help.
As NPR explained, churches and other houses of worship are exempt from the birth control requirement, but affiliated institutions that serve the general public are not. That includes charitable organizations, universities and hospitals.
In response to the nuns appeal, the Department of Justice placed the Little Sisters of the Poor in an ethical dilemma in which group members must violate their faith or pay fines. The DOJ argued in legal papers filed last Friday that the nuns dont have a leg to stand on.
The Obama administration tried to explain that they dont have to offer contraception and abortion-inducing drugs, as long as they sign a government form that delegates the action to a third party. Without signing that self-certification form, the nuns would incur steep government fines.
But Mark Rienzi, who is senior counsel for The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, responded on behalf of the nuns to the DOJs argument by retorting that government officials are simply blind to the religious exercise at issue: the Little Sisters and other Applicants cannot execute the form because they cannot deputize a third party to sin on their behalf.
And where is President Obama the so-called constitutional lawyer living in our White House during the whole debate? Coming out to protect the Bill of Rights for the nuns as he has for a number of progressive minorities? No. Hes hiding behind the curtains in the Oval Office, manipulating his minions to follow his pro-abortion biddings.
It is not known when Justice Sotomayor will rule on these ludicrous government actions and violations of the nuns personal religious liberty and practice. But one thing we do know is that the Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves right now regarding the governments obliteration of our First Amendment religious rights: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.
What an utter constitutional and leadership travesty it is that Obamacares promoter in chief repeatedly is breaking this promise: Under our (health care reform) plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.
Seeing as our president wont honor life in the womb, please write or call your representatives to let them know where you stand. Read and hand out my friend Randy Alcorns book Why Pro-Life? (http://www.epm.org). And then ensure your local community of faith is honoring Sanctity of Human Life Sunday on Jan. 20. The day commemorates the Jan. 22, 1973, Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision, which legalized abortion in our country. Since then, more than 55 million abortions have taken place in the U.S.
I will follow up next week on Sotomayors next action and where this case goes.
