"We all bear responsibility for every child, because we’re counting on everybody else to help look after ours, that we’re all parents, that they are all our children. This is our first task, caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged." -President Obama, on the eve of the Newtown Prayer Vigil.

It is pretty hard to take this seriously when he supports abortion on demand, partial-birth abortion, and now has us paying for abortion with our tax money, thanks to his statist takeover of healthcare.

Not only is this inconsistent with his abortion stance, but it smacks of the historical statist view of child-rearing.

Many progressives in the past have said that the family unit is harmful to statism and that children should be seen as under the guidance of the state and community rather than their biological parents. I estimate that this is inherent in O's sentiments here.

I see your point, Doug. However, if "child" is equivocated to mean "only those outside the womb," then we can take it seriously. Of course, we then have another issue that is hard to take seriously.
