Women Don’t Owe Obama Their Vote Because NARAL Says So

In a previous Reason in this series, we wrote about Barack Obama’s support for the agenda of Planned Parenthood, the organization that kills 330,000 defenseless unborn human beings in the womb each year. For that reason alone, Obama does not deserve re-election.

But Obama also supports the radical agenda of other pro-abortion groups, including NARAL Pro-Choice America. And now NARAL, as it’s more commonly known, is returning the favor.

In a bizarre press release yesterday, NARAL announced a campaign to win back the votes of “women who voted for Barack Obama in 2008 but are currently not voting for him, weakly supporting him, or not voting at all in 2012.”

NARAL sounded surprised that women would drop their support for Obama. They condescendingly refer to these women as “Obama Defectors,” implying they somehow owe Obama their allegiance.

But here’s my question: Why on earth would anyone be surprised that women who supported Obama in 2008 are turning away from him? Do they not read the news?

Do they think women aren’t troubled by Barack Obama’s support for sex-selection abortion, in which little girls are targeted for the abortionist’s knife just because they’re girls?

Do they think women are insensitive to the recent spate of botched abortions which have left several women dead, seriously injured or otherwise victimized?

Do they think professional women are ignorant of the fact that Obama’s arrogant disregard for conscience rights tends to affect women (nurses and other health professionals) disproportionally, not to mention the millions of women who wish to practice their faith beliefs without government interference?

And they’re surprised women are disappointed in Barack Obama?



Women understand that Barack Obama is perfectly fine with their children being killed by an abortionist. Nor do they hear him expressing any concern about the women being killed by abortionists.

For this reason and many others, women understand that Obama has to go.
