Equality?

So I really don’t get this.  Does Obama really think that Roe v. Wade is the catalyst for equal opportunity for women? I suppose if he means by the statement: “the same opportunities as our sons” that women will have the opportunity for as many casual relationships without “consequences” as men can have, then yes, it certainly does even the playing field. (no pun intended!) But how can he really believe that and agree with it? What a disgusting pervert. And to say that if his daughters “make a mistake” that he doesn’t want them “punished with a baby” (that quote is not included below) is pretty sad. That’s  good dad, Obama. Teach your daughters that “mistakes” (aka sins) don’t have consequences. That’ll get them far in life! And anyhow, a baby is never punishment. God creates each life and to look on that child as a punishment is unthinkable. It’ s not that child’s fault that his parents A.) decided to go against God’s plan or B.) just don’t want him. Maybe people should think a little further ahead and take responsibility for their own actions. And maybe if you aren’t ready to have children you shouldn’t be acting like you are! There’s a really easy way to prevent having kids, it’s funny they aren’t passing this info on to people…Just a thought.

Obama quote:

“Throughout my career, I’ve been a consistent and strong supporter of reproductive justice, and have consistently had a 100% pro-choice rating with Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America.

“When South Dakota passed a law banning all abortions in a direct effort to have Roe overruled, I was the only candidate for President to raise money to help the citizens of South Dakota repeal that law. When anti-choice protesters blocked the opening of an Illinois Planned Parenthood clinic in a community where affordable health care is in short supply, I was the only candidate for President who spoke out against it. And I will continue to defend this right by passing the Freedom of Choice Act as president….

“But we also know that Roe v. Wade is about more than a woman’s right to choose; it’s about equality. It’s about whether our daughters are going to have the same opportunities as our sons.

I still cannot believe that we (America, not me) elected this man as our president. But…maybe it just means that we get to go home soon. That would be exciting! 🙂

    I hate the term “anti-choice”. We are NOT anti-choice, we are PRO-LIFE!!! Sickening. . .

    Hey, I say I’m pro-choice…You can choose to have sex or not. If you do, well you are choosing to maybe have a baby. That’s the only choice I see. Once the baby’s on it’s way, well, that’s what you chose so it’s too late now. No second chances at “choosing.”
    I don’t suppose that’s what they are talking about though. 😉
