Unborn Don't Have Right To Life, But A Requirement To Register
Well this is uncomfortable. On the one hand, the White House supports your right to kill your unborn child at any moment during your pregnancy. On the other hand, if you haven't killed your child, they will treat that child like any other visitor to the White House, subject to paperwork.
LifeNews.com has the details on the White House's new "If You Haven't Killed Your Unborn Child, You Must Register Her Before You Visit Us" policy:
The Director of the White House Visitor’s Office, Ellie Shafer, today distributed an email newsletter to members of Congress and others providing detailed instructions on how to register an unborn child (“a baby that has not yet been born,” as Shafer puts it) into the security system the White House uses to arrange group tours.
“We have received a number of calls regarding how to enter security information for a baby that has not yet been born,” Shafer wrote. “Crazy as it may sound, you MUST include the baby in the overall count of guests in the tour. It’s an easy process.”
According to the National Right to Life Committee, which obtained a copy of the newsletter, the White House spells out how “the baby’s security information should be entered” into the White House system. Staff must include such details as the baby’s sex, if known.
Update: I posted this, then pulled the post on account of believing it must be some hoax. It must be a hoax, right? Why would any White House need this information, much less one as supportive of abortion as this one? It doesn't make sense to me. In any case, here's a copy of the email used to source the story, courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon.
But someone must explain this to me, if it's not a hoax. Why would the White House need this information? I mean, I tell my children about the baseball games they attended in utero. And I even let them count it toward their list of stadiums they've visited. But, then again, I'm pro-life.
