The Executive Office of the President of the United States — aka Barack Obama — released a document in the days leading up to Christmas that proves once again that reality conspires against even the most careful liars.
The White House intended the document in question — dryly titled “Long-Term Benefits of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program” — to build the case for expanding the value and availability of food stamps.
What the document demonstrates is that even the Obama White House knows that an unborn child is a child.
During his political career, Obama has made great exertions to obscure this fact from public view — and this White House paper is not his first failure in that regard:
When Obama was an Illinois state senator in 2001, as this column noted in 2008, state Sen. Patrick O’Malley introduced a trio of bills designed to protect the right to life of babies surviving abortions. One of these defined a fully born abortion-surviving baby as a “person,” “human being,” “child” and “individual.”
Only Obama stood up on the Illinois Senate floor to speak out against this.
But then Obama had difficulty finding terms that — from his perspective — sufficiently dehumanized the type of human he wished to deny the right to life.
He initially slipped and called a born baby who survives an abortion a “child.” Yet he made clear that such a “child” should be considered a “fetus” who is “temporarily alive outside the womb.”
