Leave to Sen. Barack Obama to equate bad sexual behavior and punishment with the potential for a young girl to have a baby. Just when one does not think that a serious presidential candidate can push the envelope on one of the great moral morasses of this age, in comes Sen. Barack.
At a campaign event over this past weekend, Sen. Barack said the following:
Look, I got two daughters, nine and six years old. I am going to teach them values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby. I don't want them punished with and STD (sexually transmitted disease) at age 16, so it doesn't make sense not to give them information.
To be fair, if what Sen. Barack is talking about sexual education, here is a clue. It is being taught with more vigor than United States history, reading, and math. It is all out for young people to see. Their knowledge about sex today would astound most adults.
But it is the comment about babies being some kind of punishment that is beyond belief.
Babies are a gift from almighty God. Maybe some were not created in a loving way. Some are created in the heat of passion. Some, unfortunately, are the result of rape and even the sick and depraved act of incest. But, overall, a baby is a gift to the world.
To call a baby a punishment, or the attaining an STD a punishment shows what the socialist left thinks about the outcome of sexual relations.
Are some, particularly young girls, not mature enough to have a baby? You betcha! And, there are plenty of adult women who do not have the maturity to have a baby. But, if a young girl does become pregnant, there are options beside abortion. There is giving the baby up for adoption. There is the reality of becoming a parent at a young age. And, for some it is an instant maturity that many, including the father and mother may have not known they had.
Is there any provision for when a young girl, or any woman, is the victim of rape and or incest? Yes, there are two. Again, the baby can be carried to term and either raised by the woman or, and I know some will argue, but in these cases an abortion should be considered. That is why I do favor exceptions to abortion. But, even those exceptions must be strictly enforced.
What Sen. Barack did in that statement say what many on the left and or socialists really think about babies and or transmission of STDs. That they are somehow a punishment for promiscuity. Maybe they are. I do not agree. I believe that sex is not taken seriously enough in this nation. Look all around. Erotic advertising is all the rage. Walk by an Abercrombie and Fitch store and see near sex acts on display in huge billboard-sized photos. How about the female homoerotic advertising? It is all on display. And the behavior of the narcissistic celebrity culture. Does anyone with a brain cell think that Britney Spears should be mother of the year? Do you think that she did not have sex ed while in school? Please!
Sen. Barack will try his best to backtrack this astounding statement. That is if the DDBMSM even reports this with any seriousness. His sycophantic media lap dogs will dismiss this the same way they dismissed his relationship with his pastor, the "Rev." Jeremiah Wright.
This man will be the Democrat nominee for president. It is time for all to see the light of day as to what kind of president Sen. Barack will make. A disaster that will make us old enough to yearn for the days of Jimmy Carter.
