Barry's Esteem for Roe v. Wade

President Obama expresses his esteem for the legalization of murdering unborn children in this statement from January 22. Yours truly has taken the liberty of commenting on his statement.

On the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters.

"Women's health" and "reproductive freedom?" Last time I checked, pregnancy wasn't a disease. Never more has the government intruded on "the most private family matters" as when the Supreme Court chose the path of the "privacy jurisprudence." Think about it. How much ink was spilled on the most intimate details of sex prior to the Griswold decision? The government has been more interested and involved in the most "intimate decisions" since inventing imagined "liberty interests."

I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose.

Translation: "a woman's right to intentionally murder."

While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue, no matter what our views, we are united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, reduce the need for abortion, and support women and families in the choices they make.

There is no need for abortion. I won't support women and families if the choice is to kill their unborn children. I guess we're not united, Barry!

To accomplish these goals, we must work to find common ground to expand access to affordable contraception, accurate health information, and preventative services.

There can be no common ground on an intrinsic evil such as contraception. Does "preventative services" include education for chastity?

On this anniversary, we must also recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights and opportunities as our sons: the chance to attain a world-class education; to have fulfilling careers in any industry; to be treated fairly and paid equally for their work; and to have no limits on their dreams. That is what I want for women everywhere.

So the President has taken the position that the fact that women have wombs and can have babies gets in the way of women's opportunities and rights. Wow. So much for the dignity of women. Translation: women you must become a man in order to have "no limits on your dreams" and "to be treated fairly" and "paid equally."
