Obama's Revealing Blunder
—Hugh Hewitt

In a recent Q and A with voters, Barack Obama got questions on a variety of sensitive subjects, one of which was sex education. Senator Obama noted he had two young daughters, and that he would first try to teach them morals, but added:

"But, if they make a mistake I don't want them punished with a baby. I don't want them punished with an STD at the age of 16."

This shocked many in America. Calling a baby born under any circumstances a punishment is a bewildering and callous devaluing of human life. Comparing the punishment of a baby to the punishment of an STD is similarly shocking--as it reveals a comfort with abortion as some sort of "solution" that is compatible with the senator's pro-abortion record.

Since his blunder, Senator Obama's campaign has been trying to correct the record, but the spoken word is powerful--and Barack Obama's conclusion that babies are punishments will remain a feature of campaign 2008.
