Barak Obama and Abortion

baby He can’t seem to escape it.  A short time ago, Barak Obama made a comment regarding his young daughters– that if they “made a mistake” he didn’t want them “punished with an STD or a child” (paraphrase).  So, when the Compassion Forum came up, the moderator gave him a chance to clarify his comment:

What I was saying was that my daughters are 9 and 6. And so if, at the age of 12 or 13, they made what I would consider to be a mistake, in having sex or unprotected sex, and ended up getting pregnant – I think that statistically we know 12- or 13-year-olds who are having children are much more likely to be impoverished, are much more likely to have health problems, are much more likely to have trouble raising that child.
