Beyoncé’s pro-‘life is but a dream’

Superstar songstress Beyoncé Knowles, aka Mrs. Shawn Carter, probably doesn’t realize it, but her new documentary, Life is but a Dream, is doing a serious disservice to Barack Obama’s pro-choice agenda. During the 2012 campaign, pop star/Obama BFF Beyoncé hosted a $40K-a-plate campaign fundraiser for the president at Jay-Z’s exclusive 40/40 Club. She and stage mother Tina Knowles even designed a t-shirt to raise money for Runway to Win.

BeyonceThen, barely a month after she proudly lip-synched her way through The Star-Spangled Banner at the president’s inauguration, Beyoncé debuted in a self-directed, self-produced 90-minute “look at me, I’m Queen B” HBO documentary about herself. The two things the HBO Beyoncé-mentary confirmed were that Beyoncé thinks very highly of herself and that although she identifies with the likes of Barack Obama, when it comes to pregnancy and childbirth, she doesn’t toe the liberal pro-choice line.

In fairness, it is possible that Beyoncé isn’t aware of how her lamenting a miscarriage and admission that hearing a baby’s heartbeat in the womb is “the most beautiful music [she] ever heard in [her] life” could negatively affect Barack’s anti-Born Alive Act ideology. After all, Beyoncé did dance up a storm in a Michelle-inspired “Move Your Body” video and then went on to sign a $50-million deal with PepsiCo, apparently without a thought as to how becoming the face of Pepsi could undermine Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move”-away-from-sugar initiative.

America knows where Barack Obama stands on the issue of abortion. However, it is confusing when a superstar like Beyoncé says things about pregnancy like “It is the most powerful creation for you to be able to have life growing inside of you. There is no bigger gift, nothing more empowering” – and then endorses a president who believes that saying when life begins is “above [his] pay grade.”

ScreenShot2013-02-17at121458AM_zps2e6aef6fAfter the 2012 birth of Mr. and Mrs. Carter’s daughter Blue Ivy, in an interview with U.K.’s Star Magazine, Beyoncé said, “You have the instant connection once you know your child is growing inside you…from the time I knew I was pregnant we have been parents.” Sentiments like those indicate that Beyoncé didn’t read the Planned Parenthood talking points memo prior to the interview.

And it gets better. According to Beyoncé – one of Barack Obama’s biggest celebrity supporters – if you’re pregnant, you’re carrying “a child” and are being granted “an opportunity to bring a life into the world.”

In Life is but a Dream, Beyoncé continues the pro-life theme when she shares her sadness over the loss of her first baby in the early stages of pregnancy. The young mother said that when she first heard the baby’s heartbeat, she immediately picked out a name and “envisioned what [the] child would look like.”

In a prior interview, the megastar had already discussed that devastating loss. Beyoncé said that upon learning that there was no longer a heartbeat, she went to the studio and penned and then sang a song she called “the saddest [she had] ever written.” The words to the unnamed track are those of a bereaved mother telling a baby that would never to be born, “I’m longing for your heartbeat, heartbeat.”

By being such a staunch supporter of Barack Obama, and then sharing  maternal feelings toward an unborn child with a name and a face,  Beyoncé certainly does nothing to reinforce the “blob of cells” argument that liberals depend upon when justifying abortion.

Beyoncé also expressed the strong belief that a miscarriage teaches a woman things about pregnancy – “Especially after losing a child, the pain and trauma from that just makes it mean so much more to get an opportunity to bring a life into the world.”

Two years after her miscarriage, Beyoncé was blessed when she conceived Blue Ivy. In the documentary, the 17-time Grammy-winner rubbed and cradled her swollen belly on camera and showed clips of her announcing her pregnancy on the MTV Music Awards show in 2011. It was there that Beyoncé looked into the camera and said that the “baby wants to introduce herself.”

With all the heartbeat talk and the black-and-white sonogram popping up on the TV screen, one would think Planned Parenthood would request that the documentary be removed from prime time for supporting “informed consent” and promoting what the abortion-backers refers to as an “invasive procedure.”

The documentary even included intimate footage of Beyoncé preparing to give birth and husband and rapper Jay-Z awaiting the baby’s arrival. After the precious Blue Ivy Carter was born, Beyoncé said that “I felt like God was giving me a chance to assist in a miracle.” He certainly was!

  • Pro choice includes the choice to be pregnant.

    • Then why do some pro-choicers refer to pro-lifers as “anti-choice”, if the only choice pro-lifers are against is abortion?

      • Gordon Duffy

        They are against allowing a choice.

        • Jess LeAnne Bear

          No we’re not. We believe the CHOICE of whether to have a baby or not is BEFORE the woman has sex. She has the PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY to either not have sex or have protected sex. She SHOULD NOT have the choice to kill her unborn baby due to her irresponsibility. A baby should be born in a loving manner in a marriage of a man and a woman. Not discarded like a mistake.

    • Call it what is really is Pro death, what else could the opposite of Pro life be?

      • Gordon Duffy

        Pro life is the dishonest name anti choice people give themselves. So called pro life kills women so I will not call it pro life.

    • Suegirly

      Really Gordon. then why does Planned Parenthood sell so many abortions instead of referring for adoption for sending the mom to a crisis pregnancy center when she is unsure about her abortion, to get another opinion. Why do they fight to close crisis pregnancy centers. Why do they allow abortions on underage children brought in by over aged adults, even when the adult identify themselves as pimps? where are the crisis pregnancy shelters runs by Planned Parenthood or any other “pro-choicers” for that matter.?They seem to be pro abortion to me. Just sayin!

  • Detroiter327

    Oh it’s such a pity not everyone bases their political leanings off of one single issue!

    • Calvin Freiburger

      It’s a bigger pity that so many American consciences have degraded to the point where they see executing babies as merely one political issue among many. If someone who believed in, say, bringing back racial segregation were running for office, there’d be no question that such evil would be a dealbreaker, regardless of how appealing his other policy views might be.

  • Gotta take a second to address a pet peeve – Beyonce’s legal name is Beyonce Knowles-Carter and it looks like she’s still using the name Beyonce Knowles professionally. Not everybody drops their original surname and goes by their husband’s last name when they get married.

    Moving on, you’re totally right about how bizarre Beyonce’s support for Obama is. If Beyonce had decided to have, say, twenty-six-week-old Blue Ivy pulled out of her uterus piece by piece, that would have been just fine with Obama.

  • Ana

    Go Beyonce! thank you so much for being pro-life! May God bless you

  • Pro “choice” advocates seem to get a bit angry when one deems an unborn child a living human being. The truth the pregnant mother is not carrying a “blob of tissue,” his hurtful to their cause!!

  • If Americans would start voting the way they were raised, instead of by color or misguided ideology, the Democrat Party would cease to exist. A party started by the Klan, embraced by African Americans…how misguided is that!!!

  • peggy costion

    When Black singers and movie stars finally realize that 1/3 of American Black babies are aborted, maybe they will wake up to the Democratc agenda. Slavery was one thing, but genocide is even worse. And the Republican Party, which stood for Freedom from Slavery, now stands for Life – all life of unborn babies. Wake Up oh ye sleepers !

  • Mykol

    Whether or not an embryo is considered “human” yet it is going to be a human! No one has the right to deny someone the chance to live.

  • Christian Mama

    The schizophrenic thinking of someone that is Pro-abortion is that THIS baby was WANTED, therefore deserved life and could be talked about freely as a child.

  • desire

    This shouldn’t be an outrage…Pro choice is saying that the MOTHER has a right to choose..Beyonce has the right of choice she wanted a baby and she deserved it…this doesnt mean she’s making him look bad …shes expressing her feelings about being expited about the life of her child. I even know a woman whos had at least 5 abortions with no regret and she told me when she was preg and felt the baby moving it was the most beautiful feeling in the world. I am pro life but I even support Obama but that doesnt mean Im going to Agree with everything he does or feel
