President Barack Obama issued a statement today celebrating the 43-year-old Roe v. Wade decision that allowed for virtually unlimited abortions. In a written statement that celebrated killing little boys and girls in abortions as giving people “the rights, freedoms, and opportunities to fulfill our dreams.”

The United States marks 42 years of legalized abortion in all fifty states at any time for any reason throughout pregnancy on January 22nd, the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Since that time, there have been approximately 58,586,256 abortions that have destroyed the lives of unborn children.

For President Barack Obama millions of babies dying in abortions is a cause for celebration. Obama said the Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion “affirmed a woman’s freedom to make her own choices about her body and her health.”

“The decision supports the broader principle that the government should not intrude on private decisions made between a woman and her doctor,” he said. “As we commemorate this day, we also redouble our commitment to protecting these constitutional rights, including protecting a woman’s access to safe, affordable health care and her right to reproductive freedom from efforts to undermine or overturn them.”

“In America, every single one of us deserves the rights, freedoms, and opportunities to fulfill our dreams,” Obama’s statement concluded.

His comments come just weeks after he vetoed a bill Republicans in Congress passed to de-fund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which was caught selling the body parts of aborted babies. Hearings have exposed how the abortion company likely violated federal laws to sell the body parts.
