On the same day President Obama is shifting to the left on the issue of Marriage, he is evidently shifting to the right on the subject of Life.
What else is one to think?
The White House Visitor’s Office has issued a new directive. Visitors who are pregnant have to register their unborn child at the door!
The Director of the office, Ellie Shafer, was very specific on what she was saying, clarifying that the “unborn” is “a baby that has not yet been born,” clearly delineating it from, say, a gall bladder or a tumor on the spleen.
Said Ms. Shafer:
“We have received a number of calls regarding how to enter security information for a baby that has not yet been born. Crazy as it may sound, you MUST include the baby in the overall count of guests in the tour. It’s an easy process.”
My Webster Dictionary defines a baby as “an infant, a young child, the youngest member of a family.”
In other words, a baby is a person.
Why is this so important? Because in Roe v. Wade, the entire decision hinged on the word person, as you can hear in the recording above from the actual court hearing back in 1973.
The author of the infamous decision, Justice Harry Blackmun, left no fudge room:
“If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case, of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life would then be guaranteed specifically by the Amendment.”
The Obama White House has acknowledged what Republicans have long stated in their defense of the little guy, that the fetus, this little preborn human being, is a person.
The wheels of justice demand that every state acknowledge the personhood of the preborn, as does the Obama White House, and restore their Constitutional protections of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
