Doesn’t Barack Obama care if unborn babies experience pain?

When it comes to abortion rights, Barack Obama has voted for preserving that right all the way up until a baby born alive dies from the deliberate denial of medical care after a botched abortion.

A recent National Right to Life poll indicated that an increasingly pro-life electorate supports the bill’s 20-week criteria 64 percent to 30 percent, which is why America’s Contrarian-in-Chief seeks to impose yet another abhorrent opinion that the majority rejects.

When asked about the bill, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney reiterated that the president “has been absolutely clear about where he stands” on the issue of abortion. That’s for sure!

In a Statement of Administration Policy, the president called the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 1797) “an assault on a woman’s right to choose” and said it shows “contempt for … the Constitution.” Oh no, not contempt for the inhuman treatment of the most helpless and innocent among us – but “contempt for [a] Constitution” that the president has already made quite clear is what he has contempt for.

Barack Obama has spent his first term diligently working to undermine, for starters, the First, Second, and Fourth Amendments. Yet he’s willing to embrace the Constitution if he can apply his twisted interpretation of the 14th Amendment to a procedure that seeks to exterminate babies until the ninth month of pregnancy – and sometimes beyond.

So is Obama saying he doesn’t care if human beings suffer agonizing deaths? Apparently so, and for those of us outside the womb who think we’re exempt from needing “pain-capable protection,” what does Barack Obama’s disregard for the suffering he seeks to dispose of portend for the elderly and chronically ill?

Americans had best beware that at some point, the sick and aged are almost guaranteed to be denied medical treatment from government panels doling out favors like the IRS doled out tax-exempt status.

Nonetheless, Barack Obama – who, by the way, called his “two precious daughters,” Sasha and Malia, “miracles” – “strongly opposes H.R. 1797,” which he feels “would unacceptably restrict women’s health and reproductive rights and is an assault on a woman’s right to choose” – that is, to choose to dispose of a fully formed, feeling, living “miracle.”

So defensive is he about the right to feticide that Barack Obama has even refused to comment on the heinous crimes committed by now-convicted murderer and sensational late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Suffice it to say that it takes a world-class ogre to vindicate murder by endorsing it as “women’s health and reproductive rights.”

Surely, Obama’s anti-Born Alive Act rationalization is that the decision whether a child lives or dies is out of the hands of God and is instead between a woman and her doctor. As Florida Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow has so plainly pointed out, if the baby is inadvertently born alive, what goes on behind closed doors should remain a “private” decision between the woman and her doctor.

Barack Obama seems to be going through a lot of effort to publicly stand against a bill that has no companion bill in the Senate and is unlikely to ever make it to his desk. The president views restricting the right to scald, dismember, and suction an unborn child from the womb, regardless of how painful, as a “direct challenge to Roe v. Wade,” which he feels “shows contempt for women’s health and rights, the role doctors play in their patients’ health care decisions, and the Constitution.” Thus, in addition to making a statement in support of late-term, partial-birth, and a hands-off kind of post-birth abortion, just prior to the full implementation of ObamaCare, the president has revealed his acceptance of a brutality against the unborn that stands poised to impact everyone’s life.

    No, he sadly doesn’t care… this is why he really is the most pro-abortion president we ever have and hopefully will ever have. And hopefully America can recover from his reign that his two terms have become.

    • Mary Lee

      It’s a “reign of terror,” that’s for sure. The demonizing of conservatives, the lapdog state-run media, the lack of objectivity, the outright lies by “journalists”…. how could anyone have voted for him a *second* time? I am flabbergasted.

    BHO is a frightening, frightening man. His relationship with his girlfriend Planned Parenthood is absolutely creepy. He makes Bill Clinton look incredibly conservative. To be sure, I really like Bill Clinton, and even his administration was moderate, even when dealing with abortion.

    We are at the point when BHO proclaims abortion to be an absolute necessity, who supports infanticide, and people blindly follow him, like lemmings. The false, backwards, anti-feminist notion of abortion (the killing of one’s baby in the name of convenience) as the linchpin to women’s freedom is now completely out of control. The Democratic Party has become the Abortion Party; and women are held as supreme beings who cannot be questioned, ever. His Stalin-esque rise to power, his oppressive and Nixon-esque administration, his overt LOVE (I mean, LOVE) of abortion and all things Planned Parenthood should give anyone pause. It should be setting off alarms. It should make anyone with a heart and brain uneasy. I hope that our next election sees a 180; the damage this man has done to our country seems, at this point, irreparable.

      Not only him, but his lock-step followers as well.

      • Mary Lee

        Yes, exactly. And what really frightens me is this idea that he is beyond reproach. Even Clinton wasn’t beyond reproach. And I find it really fascinating and also upsetting that they scream about conservatives being some sort of Taliban, but it is THEY who are the American Taliban. I’m astonished that otherwise intelligent people (like some of my friends) refuse to see what he really is. I have never been so upset and sickened and even frightened by an administration in my life. Things have taken a dark and decadent turn.

    Are you guys or stupid? Is this serious? You guys are against one of the biggest women’s rights there are which is the right for a woman to have CONTROL of her body. What if the baby is already dead in the womb and can cause serious complications to the mother? A baby that hasn’t even been born yet has more rights than a woman? You guys have to be kidding me, Obama has done more in his administration for HUMAN RIGHTS than any of those conservatives idiots who think they know the “right” choice and decide for a woman. But if you kind ladies rather hypothetically die because you had to give birth to fetus that has died because you can’t abort, than go ahead, support anti-abortion. NO MAN CAN DECIDE FOR A WOMAN, and honestly YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE AN ABORTION, so why are you so against it?And here I thought that in 2013 we would have women’s rights for their bodies and that every women would agree since IT’S THEIR BODIES, but alas I was wrong and have to stand audience to the premature “adults” who still think they can control everyone else’s bodies, and opinionate with asinine comments. C’mon guys, please stop thinking with your asses, and think with your minds. A person’s decision is THAT person’s decision, NO ONE ELSE’S (well unless the consequences of that can hurt someone else excluding a fetus since it hasn’t been BORN yet so it shouldn’t have more rights than the carrier) so please respect their wishes. REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE: TREAT OTHERS AS YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. So in the end, moral of the story: WE NEED WOMEN’S RIGHTS BECAUSE EVEN WOMEN WHO DON’T SUPPORT IT, STILL BENEFIT FROM IT. Oh, please don’t put your Christian views into this debate because you ” TRUE CHRISTIANS” aren’t even true Christians because of your inept understanding of theology, so please read the bible, at least just once.

    • Mary Lee

      Yes. We are serious. Ripping your child apart limb from limb and incinerating them is not a RIGHT. It does not EXIST. Pregnancy is not a disease. A baby does not have MORE RIGHTS. The baby has the right to live, just as the woman is living. It is the right to be alive. When you abort your child, you are controlling THEIR body, not YOURS. There is no such thing as a right to abortion. And, please, switch to decaf.

    • Mary Lee

      Also, it’s not about a PREFERENCE. Nobody “benefits” from death. Abortion is chaos. It is disrespectful of women, it is bloody, it is destructive, it is the only “surgical procedure” in which the sole purpose is to kill another person. This isn’t even a religious argument. Science is pro-life. How in the world is killing your child LIBERTY. How in the world is that JUSTICE. Child abuse and domestic abuse have risen, because abortion teaches us that life is disposable, that babies aren’t babies and have no right to exist, that women are some special supreme beings who get to decide who lives and who dies. Our social security is in the sewer because millions upon millions of people are dead from abortion. Our population growth is actually FAR BEHIND what it should have been. We killed doctors, lawyers, novelists, dancers, painters, researchers, scholars, we killed them in the name of “choice” and “our bodies.” Abortion is selfish. There is NOTHING good about abortion. It doesn’t make us free. Ever. It never, ever will.

      • Geraldine Rafferty

        Abortion is MURDER of a human being in the womb.

        • Mary Lee

          Yes, it is. It cannot be anything else. I am so sad that people don’t understand this.

      If it doesn’t have your unique DNA, it’s not your body.

    • JDC

      Apparently, the ability to use the CAPSLOCK key makes you right. Or something. O.K., I didn’t really bother reading your comment, I just noticed your heavy use of capitalization.

    • Diva

      Please do us a favor if you don’t have something wise to say. Then don’t! Educated yourself about it. Watch videos and if you have a heart somewhere inside of you you will totally have a change of heart. And no is not ok to kill you’re own baby. Is not!
