Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women's health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters.
I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption.
And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.If my wife is really getting on my nerves and causing me great inconvenience, and I decide to kill her and eliminate that inconvenience, I'm thinking that the "fundamental principle" referenced by the President would most definitely be violated. Yes, I'm sure the government would move quickly to intrude on this "private family matter."
How does legalized abortion ensure that our daughters have the same rights, freedoms, and opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams? When did we give our sons the right to murder babies? I must have missed that.
