On the 38th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion, President Obama said Saturday he is committed to protecting what he considers a fundamental principle: “government should not intrude on private family matters.”
Obama, in a brief statement marking the 1973 Supreme Court opinion, said he also remains committed “to policies, initiatives and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.”
Quick, can anyone spot the contradiction in those two statements? The obvious contradiction seems to have evaded the Smartest President Ever.
Additionally, doesn’t Obama know that the Supreme Court is part of the government?
And finally, the assertion that the “government should not intrude on private family matters” is awfully rich coming from the guy whose signature achievement includes forcing every family in America to buy a government mandated health insurance policy, whether they want one or not.
No, the idea that Obama and the majority of his party don’t want the government to “intrude on private family matters” is obviously complete bunk. They don’t want any legislation that restricts in any way a woman’s ability to have an abortion at any point during her pregnancy, that’s what they want. They’re all for intrusion if it means government helping to fund abortions. They’re all for government intrusion into any other area of human existence. This is just one more example of President Obama saying whatever he thinks will sound good in a speech.
