Default White House: Abortion OK, But Visitors Must Register Unborn Children

White House: Abortion OK, But Visitors Must Register Unborn Children

Washington, DC -- The Obama administration is plenty content with legalized abortion and funding abortions with taxpayer funds, but when it comes to Americans visiting the White House, they must register their unborn children when they check in at the front door.

Why?!! What's the reason for this? I don't get it.

What does this have to do with security? Or are they trying to figure out to whom they should send Michelle's calorie counter and to whom should be sent a Planned Parenthood referral?

It is a violation of one's personal privacy. Because of that and there is no sane reason for asking for that information, people should not give it and leave. Just because they ask, doesn't mean you have to participate. So you don't see the White House.

Well up until it's obvious, I wouldn't ever admit it.

Absolutely. And because it is none of the White House's business, I wouldn't even if I showed. Can you imagine standing in line and being approached? If they're really worried about an incident, wait til they ask a woman who is not pregnant. WOW!

Hypocrisy on the part of the White house.

Obviously the fetus is punishing someone.

So the unborn are not human, unless they are? I seriously don't have the mental gymnastic capability to be a Democrat. To try to convince myself that two completely contrarian positions are somehow simultaneously true defies logic.

As noted earlier this is a hoax. The issue is about children who are not born at the time of registration, but will be by the time (maybe six or more months later) the tour takes place. registration is merely the prediction of a future event. Why do these people make stuff up?

It still requires the recognition that the unborn are people that must be accounted for, so therefore it is NOT a hoax, regardless of how some here may try to spin it.

The article does not say why they're doing this. Pregnant women are stopped from going on amusement rides at Walt Disney because of danger to the baby. What's the problem with pregnant women entering the White House? Is it because the security machines pick-up an extra heart beat? Because the White House doesn't want pregnant women to go through the machine because it is harmful to the baby? The article doesn't say. It doesn't even say that there are security machines all must pass through..

There are reasons why such information may be sought.

If a woman were to be in the White House and be injured or ill, and require medical attention, it would be necessary for medical staff to know that she is pregnant, and she might not be able to volunteer the info. Such knowledge may well save her life or that of the unborn in an emergency.

And from a security POV, a woman who hasn't indicated that she is pregnant beforehand but fronts up sporting a bump may well be faking it to conceal something.
