Obama Culture of Death Update™: Abortion Necessary to "Ensure Our Daughters Have the Same Rights and Opportunities As Our Sons"

To mark the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, President Obama issued the following statement:

On the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters [ED.: Except, of course, when the government wants to hand out condoms in schools and teach promiscuity via sex education that doesn't focus on abstinence, thereby intruding on "private family matters"]. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose. While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue, no matter what our views, we are united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, reduce the need for abortion [ED.: The "need" for abortion? Oh, he explains what he means by that a couple of lines later.], and support women and families in the choices they make. To accomplish these goals, we must work to find common ground to expand access to affordable contraception [ED.: That "common ground" is going to be a little hard to find, at least if you want to include Catholics who take their faith seriously. And, again, something tells me that "expanding access to affordable contraception" envisions providing it to our kids - likely without parental knowledge or involvement - at school.], accurate health information, and preventative services. On this anniversary, we must also recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights and opportunities as our sons: the chance to attain a world-class education; to have fulfilling careers in any industry; to be treated fairly and paid equally for their work; and to have no limits on their dreams. That is what I want for women everywhere.
(emphasis and editorial commentary added)

My Comments:
Yes, you see, our daughters can never hope to attain their dreams of the same world-class educations, fulfilling careers, and level of pay as our sons so long as they're burdened with the physical attributes that make them susceptible to being "punished with a baby".

Therefore, abortion must remain an option for our daughters in order to "level the playing field" by removing the burdens of motherhood.

This Obama Culture of Death Update™ has been brought to you by Prof. Douglas Kmiec, Eric McFadden, all the fine folks at Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good / Catholics United / Catholic Democrats, and countless other Catholics for whom "Hope" and "Change" trumped LIFE.

I just received a comment from someone who goes by the name Sr. Sharon on my blog. She wanted to assure me that Catholics in Alliance for the Common good are unequivocally pro-Life. If only...

That's possibly the clearest admission by a pro-abortion advocate that abortion seeks to make women more like men. Of course, the tragedy is that in doing so, it demonizing the unique gift of femininity: the gift of carrying a child.

I wonder if Mary ever wished she had the same rights and opportunities as Joseph.

Add "while she was carrying Christ" to that last sentence.

This also underscores the supposed "right" of men to be able to accomplish all of these "goals" with utter disregard for anything but SELF. So that is what women are seeking through the "right" to abortion--the ability to be completely selfish in the pursuit of personal goals. Of course, the fact of the matter is that a man is not necessarily free to make career decisions without considering how those decisions will affect those closest to him. To claim for women a privilege that men do not possess in the first place is unrealistic.

And might I also say? This is the exact reason that feminists and liberals HATED Sarah Palin so much. She has done that which--by all accounts--should be impossible.
