President Obama spoke yesterday on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade ruling. It was kind of an “I have a dream” speech, except that to make this “dream” come true, the lives of over a million babies per year in the US have to be terminated:
“As we mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we must remember that this Supreme Court decision not only protects a woman’s health and reproductive freedom, but also affirms a broader principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters,” Obama said. “I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose and this fundamental constitutional right.
“While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue — no matter what our views, we must stay united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant woman and mothers, reduce the need for abortion, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption,” Obama said.
“And as we remember this historic anniversary, we must also continue our efforts to ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”
Hey, what girl doesn’t dream of growing up to get an abortion? Call me crazy, but I’m leery of people in positions of power who believe that the right to extinguish innocent, defenseless lives is an essential element in creating a utopian society.
And Barack Obama saying “government should not intrude on private family matters” is simply hilarious. Government shouldn’t intrude on private family matters — unless it has something to do with their health care, what kind of light bulbs they use or what they eat, drink, drive, smoke, how much they exercise…..

Safer for whom?
