Haha you folks are a bunch of gullible idiots. Shame on this “news” site for deliberately misrepresenting the president’s quote to get its uneducated reader base all fired up. Reaffirming a commitment to
“a fundamental American value: that government should not intrude in our most private and personal family matters”
“The federal government should not be injecting itself into decisions best made between women, their families, and their doctors”
does not equate at all to a “commitment to abortion”. How stupid can you people get? Grow up.
Judging by your other comments, it is almost a certainty that I am better educated, more successful, and innately more intelligent than you’ll ever be. Given this, if you believe that I am stupid, I shudder to hear how lowly your opinions are of yourself, assuming you perceive a proportional relative comparison. I also like how you’re incapable of presenting a proper rebuttal that could have included facts, quotes, or even some sort of logic-based argument. Typical.

Here’s my response and an invitation to take it outside:
This posting is about to get the kind of attention it shouldn’t deserve.
1. “a fundamental American value: that government should not intrude in our most private and personal family matters”. I’m 100% with you on that. Such as home schooling, what we pack in our children’s lunch boxes, how we choose our medical care, how we choose to defend our homes. Stuff like that. Obama has no problem intruding when it supports his agenda.
2. “The federal government should not be injecting itself into decisions
best made between women, their families, and their doctors” Couldn’t agree more. The Constitution grants the states sole discretion into matters of this type.Yet Roe tramples on the rights of states to protect its citizens from an over-reaching federal government.
But this nonsense about “a decision between a woman and her doctor” is entirely irrelevant. A woman and her doctor are not protected if they plan to rob a bank or kill a toddler. So it all boils down to what they are, in fact, deciding to do. And if one believes, as I do, that a fetus is a person entitled to protection under the law, then a criminal conspiracy has no constitutional protection. The ENTIRE argument regarding abortion hinges on that one question and nothing else.
If you want to take this off line, comment on my blog http://bbcatholics.blogspot.com. I’ll provide you with all the intelligent discussion you crave.
Will (s)he show up? Or am I not well educated, intelligent and successful enough to engage?
