"The most important prevention is education, which should include...teaching the children... you know, that sex is not something casual... Look, I've got two daughters--9 years old and 6 years old. I am going to teach them first about 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 an STD at age 16, so it doesn't make sense to not give them information."
Obama’s statement reveals his dismal respect for human life and his outrageous perspective that a baby is “punishment.” The Bible clearly reveals God’s viewpoint on human life regarding babies: “Children are a heritage from the Lord and the fruit of the womb is His reward” (Psalm 127:3). Babies are reward, not punishment. They are a blessing, not a curse. Let us hope that Obama’s daughters do remain chaste until marriage, for their own sakes as well as a future grandchild reading Grandpa Obama’s words.
And since when is contraception 100% effective? Obama speaks more like a Planned Parenthood propagandist than an informed Presidential hopeful. The sex ed crowd has done a masterful job foisting this myth upon the American people, but the fact remains only abstinence is 100% effective in stopping the physical and emotional effects of sexual intercourse.
Should we be assuming that Barack and Michelle plan on offering training to their daughters on safe needle drug use? I’m sure he teaches his daughters abstinence in the area of drugs as well, “but if they make a mistake” I’m sure he wouldn’t want them “punished” with some disease from shared needles. And is Obama’s “abstinence plus” philosophy also extended to others areas of morality like bank robberies? I’m sure he wants his daughters to abstain from crime, “but if they make a mistake” is he teaching them how to make a fast getaway?
The philosophy of Barack Obama articulated this past weekend has about as much moral weight as Jello. The only consistent and reasonable position in sexuality and all other moral issues is to teach abstinence only. A part of that equation is teaching that consequences come from a result of violating that code.
