The Obama Administration Says Unborn Babies Are Human Beings

Born or Unborn, Babies Deserve To Live

Source

The White House is the preeminent home in America. The historical value alone makes every American want to visit and tour the beautiful building. A rite of passage for school children is the obligatory trip to Washington and the White House, hoping to meet the President of the United States.

When one anticipates a visit and registers for a tour of the White House, one must give name, social security number, sex, and other personal information. That is perfectly reasonable and since the tragedy of September 11, 2001, security measures have been stringently enforced. In the event of an emergency, rescue personnel must know how many persons are in the building. Again, this makes perfect sense and we appreciate the Presidential Administration looking out for us.

However, like bureaucrats do the world over, these precautions have been taken even further and explained in the usual manner of White House information releases. Immediately words spilled from both sides of the mouth and one stand fails to support the other. An email newsletter distributed by Ellie Schafer on May 8, 2012 gives step by step details on how to register an unborn child (“a baby that has not been born yet” is the actual explanation) when the mother is going to tour the White House.

The baby must be counted in the number of guests in the tour and the gender must be recorded if known. This information must be updated once the baby is born if gender was not known at the time, along with the social security number issued at birth. The word Baby is used in the space where the visitor’s name is recorded with the family’s last name used for Baby also. The parent’s address is used for Baby’s place of residence.

Obviously, the White House Administration believes this visiting unborn baby is more than a lump of tissue. It is counted as a person, a living, breathing human being. How can the same mind that says this child is a person also condone aborting him or her? If he/she is human enough to require a name, social, and to be registered as a tour guest, he/she is human enough to be granted a chance at life.

Mr. Obama and his staff recognize the existence of an unborn child in regards to security but fails to provide sanctuary in the womb itself. They condone abortion, the legalized murder, of this acknowledged human being (in the District of Columbia) for any reason.

So I have a question for them and for anyone else who is pro abortion. The parent is responsible to update the unborn child’s information after birth. Are they to send an update stating the baby was aborted and is no longer alive? Does it go something like this:

Dear White House Visitors Office, I registered my unborn baby with you when I visited the White House. I noted the sex as a boy and the name we had picked out as Bobby. But after hearing President Obama declare he would not wish his daughters to be punished with a child if they made a mistake, I decided to have an abortion. I am as good as his girls and should not be punished with a living, breathing, laughing, loving child either. Please update my registration accordingly. Thank you, Jane Doe.

Now, after much clamoring and confusion, the White House Visitors Office has explained that the registration requirement is merely a preregistration if the baby is expected to be born by the time of the tour. Okay, that makes sense. Again though, they are saying the expected arrival IS A BABY. The definition of a baby is, “An unborn child; a fetus; the youngest member of a family or group.”

This validation from the White House itself surely qualifies as proof that an unborn baby is a human being deserving of all protection and right to life as an adult. Thank you, Mr. President and the White House Administration for welcoming and counting the unborn babies of America as living humans. The update is “born on whatever date”, not “exterminated, terminated or aborted” or whatever term Planned Parenthood uses for those nine out of ten women who enter those bloody doors and murder their babies.

There are options for an expectant mother who is in despair and need. Adoption, foster care, placement with family, and many more options exist. Abortion is not an option; it is an intentional choice to end a life. Choose life.

I have never understood the rabid defense of abortion. I have not yet visited the white house as many times as I've been to DC other than lurking outside - I think its a really cool idea to sign in the unborn baby.

I once watched a video of one and it made me vomit. Responsibility for unwed mums is the only option. Killing for whatever reason is so wrong.

Thanks, Hyphenbird, great article. I'm on may out to a meeting, saw your post, had to read, will be late. No matter. Yes, Davesworld, it is amusing, but not funny. And neither should we be surprised. Truth and consistency have taken a back seat, way back , to expediency.

Point well taken, Hyph. Interesting communication to the WH Visitors Office-- well, White House, you can't have it both ways and shouldn't have it both ways. I believe, and hope, that one day soon science will have knowledge and proof of the human spirit and then perhaps we'll know when the spirit enters the growing baby in the womb. And with that knowledge the aborting of the un-birthed will finally come to an end for once and all time.

The truth is Hyphenbird - everyone knows it is a baby but they just want to call it something else for peace of mind. Well the White House has been caught with a foot in their mouth - a baby's foot. This topic is so distressing to me.

Hi Frank. I am skipping to you because you are handsome....because your confusion and distress are apparent. Regardless of how a baby was conceived, it deserves the same chance at life as any other. I personally know a woman who was raped at age 15, became pregnant from that rape, had her baby and is a wonderful and loving mother. Rape or incest are horrible and I wish no woman ever had to endure such atrocities. That does not change the fact of a baby's innocence. As the article ends, adoption is always a choice for a mother who became pregnant and does not want or cannot keep care for a child. I hope this helps you decide for life and not for death of innocents. Thank you for being so honest and forthright. Only through such means can we all learn and grow.

Lynn S. Murphy, I do not understand it either. That whole "rights of the mother" are fine until they are used to kill an innocent and helpless baby. I have never been to the White House wither. When my son goes on his school trip I hope to go as a chaperone. Thank so much for coming by.

Well written. I'm torn about this issue, but would prefer to stay away from the "blame" game. It really is an independent decision per family and circumstance and is based on their own belief system. To protect the innocent requires education and it starts at home.

Sadly,lIfe of those on this plain are barely filled with respect let alone those still inside a womb.

Hello midget. I think every woman considering an abortion should have to see that video. Many babies would be allowed to live. I agree. Killing babies for any reason is wrong.

People should just come out clear regarding when life begins. For me I am much clear that life begins when the sperm fertilizes the ovum. And there should be no abortion. Women and men should see the video maybe it will make many babies to live as the idea of abortion will never arise.

Would it were so today Alastar. The spirit is present at the moment of conception when the sperm meets the egg. The heart of hearts in every human being knows this. Some just choose to believe otherwise in an attempt to justify their awful actions. I know your heart and it is gentle toward all living creatures. I hope more people become like you.

Hyphenbird 4 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

ALUR, you are right. Life in general is not respected or valued so a tiny baby certainly gets none from people who put themselves first. Humanity and love make this more than a circumstance or family decision. It should not be a choice at all. I understand many people are confused, indecisive or trying to remain impartial. That can no longer happen though. We can save babies one person at a time. I do pray this article helps you make a choice for life. Thank you so much for reading and commenting on this Hub.

Many people choose abortion because of the cost of having a child; not taking care of a child, but actually having it. A friend of mine had a baby without health insurance, and she paid $6000(!) just to go into labor and have it. That's not including all the exams and ultrasounds she had leading up to the actual birth itself. Perhaps if the natural, human process of having a baby didn't cost so much (um, I'm not charged to die, and that is a natural process too), people would have less abortions.

Abortions range somewhere around a few hundred bucks without insurance. A lot of people that get abortions are young women without a lot of money. =/

Alastar, I know and bless your mom every day for bringing you into this world. We needed your wisdom and friendship. It is amazing to think that women were killing babies dozens, hundreds and even thousands of years ago. That was not a national campaign to eradicate a generation though like our government is now doing. Tell your mom thanks from all of us and that we love her because she is your mother.


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 4 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

I agree entirely Nyamache. Life begins at the instant of fertilization. If it didn't nothing more would happen and the baby would not grow. Abortion is a scourge that shall go down in history as genocide. Thank you for reading this article. I appreciate you.

Hyphenbird 4 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

kathleenkat, you have a great point. Your friend should have been able to get help from the public health department along with WIC and other supports. Rather than abort, a woman can go to a reputable adoption center who will find adoptive parents. They can pay medical expenses. Any option is better than killing a baby. We do need more plans in place to help and support women instead of just saying not to have an abortion. Even a year long plan would help the mother have hope and a light at the end of the road. Thank you so much for your feedback on this issue.

Although I personally do not believe or would not have an abortion I do believe that there are times when a woman should not have to carry a child. When a fetus is deemed mentally or physically deformed a woman should have the right to choose not to carry this child. When a woman is raped or molested, she should not be made to carry a child if she can not carry it to full term to give it up for adoption. Sexual battery is enough mental scarring without carrying the perpetrators baby inside your body for nine months to remind you of the horrible abuse you went through. When I worked in the pregnancy clinic I was presented with two children 10 and 12 both sisters who had been repeatedly raped by their 30 year old uncle and pregnant. Neither one of them wanted to keep the babies and in the state of Florida any child no matter how old is emancipated from being a child and their parents can no longer make health care decisions for them. I do not think in times like these abortion is wrong. No ten year old that has been repeatedly raped should have to go through the torture of trying to deliver her perpetrators baby. Abortion for birth control that is totally a different case. Sometimes you have to be on both sides of the fence to see how it would feel. Although many are strongly against abortion, I just feel there are times that is warranted to prevent that child from suffering a lifetime of abuse.

Hyphenbird 4 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

Hello Author Cheryl. Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments. The situation you describe is so awful that I feel sick physically and emotionally. I long for the day when things like that never happen again. I agree the mother sometimes will suffer greatly while carrying a baby to term. All of that does not change the fact that the unborn are innocent and deserve to live. They are innocent. Killing them will greatly increase the burden of violence and horror the perpetrator began. You are right that no 10-12-16-30 year old should have to carry and deliver a child of rape. Sadly it does happen in this fallen, sick world. I do know both sides of the fence and still stand firm in my belief that innocent babies should not be punished for the actions of their parents. Thank you again for coming by this hub.I appreciate that very much.

...love how your provoke your readers into thinking - and your strong suit as a writer, for me , has always been your sensitivity, intelligence, compassion and empathy.

Personally speaking though I am pro choice on this abortion issue as there are already too many miserable people on this earth right now - why bring anymore unwanted ones into this world - 1:54pm

Hello epi. I appreciate your kind words and thank you. I do strive to live a loving, caring life. That is why I know happy people far outweigh the unhappy and there is always room for a new life. Someone somewhere always wants a baby and we can fix the situation once the child is born. Once it has been murdered, there is nothing left to do but grieve. Please reconsider your stand on abortion. Think of the unborn in terms of a living, breathing, loving human being like you and I. We are important to this world and new lives are also. Thank you for commenting. It is always nice to see you.

..yes I know that dear Brenda - if this were a perfect world I would say then bring all of the babies in - but it's not a perfect world and a lot of these poor babies suffer and never really have a chance - especially in underdeveloped countries - and it should never happen in a country like the U.S.A. but shame on them - it does.

Thanks for the debate Brenda - it's always a honor to hook up with you and have a nice little chat. God bless you - you are truly one of a kind and I look up to you.

Hi Brenda - well actually we've had a nice stretch of dry, mild , clear, sunny weather - and I've never seen the stars so bright at night because of the cooler nights. I still go into the water for a dip each day - even today on October 1 but each time is less and less - the water is still relatively warm but it was only a 5 minute dip today.

The cats get out everyday and then at night they come in and hog my bed so it's difficult for me to get in myself and into my own bed - lol -

the heat has only come on once so far this season and that was the first time since last April but you know the old story about the heat at this time of year - once it comes on - it more or less stays on until April again -sending you warm wishes once again dear Brenda at lake erie time 8:34pm

Hyp, very powerful article. Your such a great writer, hands down. You write about all kinds of different things, so thumbs up for that. This was very well written and I couldn't agree more. I know that there are certain circumstances, such as rape or other factors. Even if this is so, I believe the child should be given to someone. Excellent article Hyp. Voted up and all across but funny. Shared also.


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 4 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

Hi lyricwriter. Thank you for your caring heart. Yes, awful circumstances such as rape make a pregnancy excruciating and painful. Circumstances do not change the fact that a baby deserves life and is on no way guilty. As hard as it may be, the months will pass and the baby can be adopted if the mother cannot come to terms with the situation. But death is permanent. Once that child is killed, nothing will bring it back and then the mother who has already suffered such trauma has more to deal with.

Thank you for the votes and for sharing this Hub. I appreciate you.

This is so well written and I love that you were brave enough to tackle such a controversial issue. You also pointed out options because the reality is that a 14 year old isn't really equipped to raise a child and someone that gets raped didn't choose to have a baby. I still struggle with this issue because I might know the decision I would make for myself but I don't feel I'm in a position to decide for someone else. I do think there should be more support for those that get pregnant and decide they are not ready to be a parent because I can't even let myself imagine a child's life when the parents didn't really want the child. Great hub because it really forces people to face and think about abortion. Voted up!


Hyphenbird profile image

Hyphenbird 4 years ago from America-Broken But Still Beautiful Author

Hello healthylife. Indeed 14 year old girls are girls and not ready to be mothers. We do need to offer support, options and ongoing resources for mothers who cannot or choose not to keep their babies. It is easy to scram No Abortion and move on. We are required to help these confused and desperate women. Actually we do not decide for anyone else when we vote against abortion. We decide for God and for the life of innocents. It is a hard and tough issue but one that should never have become an option. Abortion is murder and murder is wrong. I know I am being frank and some might even say harsh. That is not harsher than killing a baby and in doing so I hope to help a woman think again and choose life for her baby. I cannot imagine living for decades knowing I murdered my child and do not want any other woman to feel that way either. Thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate that.

I've always been against abortion. Our society has a responsibility towards children who are unborn and all help should go out to unwed mothers. I like you final lines Abortion is a intentional choice, not an option." There are so many options for the unborn child like you say.

Voted up, useful and interesting. Sharing on G+1.

Hello Rajan Jolly. I am so pleased your heart is against killing babies. That makes me so happy. I will never fathom how people can murder a tiny infant yet become angry about war, cutting down a tree, etc. Those things are important of course. Human life is most to be honored. We certainly should offer more support and options to mothers. May we all work together toward that end. Thank yo so much.
