Late this morning, President Barack Obama held a press conference
heading into an afternoon session with Congressional members on how to
apportion the spending starting this week on the economy.

I caught this…..In the middle of a statement Obama was making
upholding the need for this spending, he said the unemployed need it to
ensure continued health care coverage, the seniors need it won’t have
to worry about access to their most basic needs, and…

pregnant women won’t have to worry about the health of their babies…

as Obama put it.

Which made me wonder, simply, does someone who uses that language
realize that when they rightfully admit that a pregnant woman has a
baby to worry about…the euphemistic term “choice’ deprives that baby’s
humanity? And to uphold laws that allow people to end that baby’s life is completely contradictory to the adovcacy to provide women carrying that baby’s life the financial means to care for it? To the point of making that a selling point of the new spending package…?!

Just wondering.
