Private Family Matter

Today, President Obama defended the right of a woman to choose to kill her baby as a “private family matter” and that “government should not intrude” on it. What does that mean?

If I have a child with a woman out of wedlock, I am forced by the courts to pay child support even though I don’t want to. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some parents choose to not to vaccinate their children, yet the government makes it mandatory for entry into school. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some parents don’t want to take their children to the doctor when they’re sick, yet the government may take their children away if they don’t. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some parents don’t think their child should be restrained in a car seat, yet that’ll get the parents a traffic ticket. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some parents choose to give their children alcohol, yet the government says it’s illegal to provide alcohol to a minor. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some parents think it’s okay to leave their children at home alone, yet the government will arrest the parents for endangering the welfare of a minor. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some parents think it’s okay to have sex with their child, yet that parent would be arrest for pedophilia. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some men (and women) think it’s okay to have more than one wife at the same time, yet they’ll get arrested for polygamy. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some men think it’s okay to beat their wives, yet that’ll land the guy in jail. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters.

Some people don’t want to purchase health insurance, yet under the health care reform law passed last year everyone will be forced to purchase an insurance plan. So the government DOES intrude on private family matters. (President Obama’s big idea.)

So why is it okay for the government to become involved in all these private family matters (and more), but Obama uses that as an excuse to justify legalized abortion-on-demand? You can’t have it both ways, Mr. President. You cannot, on the one hand, legislate dozens, if not hundreds, of private family matters and then say that the government should not intrude on a private family matter when it is politically expedient for you (Obama has flip-flopped on many things but he has unswervingly supported the right to kill a baby in the womb).

Maybe it’s just me, but…justifying the murder of 1.2 million babies in the womb every year by saying it is a “private family matter” is patently disingenuous and a red herring cop out used to justify receiving pro-abort PAC money.
