The Sanctity of Human Life... But Only for a White House Tour?

By Bobby Eberle

Here's one that will make you scratch your head. We all know that as a state senator, Barack Obama supported legislation to allow babies to be killed if they were born alive following an abortion. We also know that religious resistance to Obamacare mandates involving the forced coverage of abortion, contraception, and sterilzation have been met with pressure and strong-arm tactics. Yet, when it comes to taking a simple White House tour, guess what? The unborn child is considered to be a living, breathing person.

As noted in a press release by the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), an e-mail circulated by a White House staffer outlines the instructions for getting an unborn child through security for a White House tour:

"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."

The newsletter then proceeds to spell out how "the baby's security information should be entered" into the White House system, including such details as: "GENDER: if the parents know put that gender down if not, you can enter either M or F as we'll ask you to update it at the time of birth." All of the information should be updated "once, the baby is born," the newsletter instructs.

Douglas Johnson, the legislative director for NRLC, blasted Obama for this bizarre practice, saying, "It is ironic that President Obama's staff recognizes the existence of unborn babies for purposes of providing security within the White House -- yet, there is no indication that President Obama has any problem with the fact that throughout the District of Columbia, abortion is now legal for any reason up to the moment of birth."

Apparently, an unborn child is protected while within the White House walls, but step outside, and it's a completely different ball game.

Johnson also poses an interesting question. According to the procedures, a person is supposed to give the White House an update once the baby is born regarding the gender of the child. What if the child is aborted? Should that be reported back as well?

States across the country have tried to pass "personhood" amendments to their state constitutions. It's quite simple and basically states that a person is a person, whether in the womb or not. It seems this policy is in place at the White House... just not anywhere else across the country.

    “including such details as: “GENDER: if the parents know put that gender down if not, you can enter either M or F as we’ll ask you to update it at the time of birth.” All of the information should be updated “once, the baby is born,” the newsletter instructs.”

    What am I missing? The baby will obviously be born after the tour, so why file an update when the baby is born??

      Since 25% of all people visiting the Whitehouse are probably illegal aliens or foreign born, If someone drops a baby on the premises they want to get him signed up on the rolls of the Democrat party ASAP,as well as free lunches, Free healthcare and unearned income credits on future tax returns. Every vote counts in this election so I would not be surprised that the unborn will now join the ranks of the actual dead that appear on the Deomcrat voting rolls to push their guy over the top.

    Hypocrisy is nothing new to this regime or to its leader since long before he ever held office.

    Brings to mind the question as to whether there are so few people eager to tour the White House while the usurper occupies it, they need to count the unborn to boost their numbers.

      Hmm, now I get it! Unborn babies are important when you need the numbers. We just need to get rid of the pesky little things when they are no longer useful to us.

    It’s not THAAAAAAAAAAT crazy. A little poking around on the internet amd you’ll find that registering for security is done days or weeks in advance of the actual date you’re planning to take your White House tour.

    That’s the reason for this, I believe: so that if the mother has the baby after registering but *before* the tour she can take her child with her if she wishes as it will be registered with security also (hence the need to update the info after the kid is born. So to answer the question in the article, if the baby were aborted it would have to be done before the tour for it to matter for security purposes, but in that case I guess they’d just treat it like a no-show).

    I know, I know… I feel like a party pooper, but I do think it’s important to know your stuff before you get all worked up. I normally really enjoy reading the Loft, but this piece was just lazy.

      You missed the real point of this article. Who CARES about the name or sex of an unborn or newborn baby. Security? You’ve got to be kidding!

    The key word being “BORN”. Until it is a living breathing thing it is not alive. Any time you believe it is then lets just drag it out here and have a little talk with it. I understand your point of view and you have a right to it. BUT when it comes to law mind your own business for you most certainly won’t want me minding yours. No My White House should not be counting the unborn and I’ll be demanding answers as to why they are. Although it seems those occupying the White House have less understanding of English then myself. It is an illogical language. They are slow to never in answering.

      Being “born” makes it alive?????????? You have got to be kidding! Is it the mom’s body that creates the movement and why does “it” need nourishment if it isn’t alive? The miracle happens at conception the finished product appears at birth!
      “Your” Whitehouse? Making it only your business? Sorry, it doesn’t belong to you any more than the rest of us but we support every aspect of it building and occupants alike!

      An unborn child isn’t living? Do you remember in biology 101 when they talked about the difference between living and non-living? Do you remember words like metabolism and growth and organism and organization? By any biological standard an unborn child is definitely living.

      Surprised I only got two reply’s? There’s hope yet. My point being that under this Nations Constitution as set forth by my forefathers it’s no one else s business what I do. Most certainly not the the sort of mentalities seated with in this present government. I’m sick and tired of the Religious right trying to push their beliefs out side the confines of their own congregation. Many of my family gave of their lives to insure that I would have the right to pursue happiness in any matter I, NOT you, should choose. If you should find that your unable to mind your own business you may consider a new nation of residence with a people willing to suffer your beliefs.
      And yes stymied4sure as a 100% per-Revolutionary blooded American it is my White House. Some of the migrant infestation seem to believe the wallet sucking public servant that is granted the use of this home by We the People are some king of royalty. Their not.

      Let me make this also clear. I don’t like abortion any more then any one else BUT it is today still a necessity. Why because there are those amongst you who with out ever doing so still insist upon teaching your own children about the birds and the bee’s. Maybe when you can admit to your failure you’ll turn the job over to professionals.

    As long as it is beneficial to the Whitehouse, They want a larger count of visitors, so they include the unborn. I am lost for words, well actually I am not, but I don’t want to be blacklisted from this site.

    This is just another example of the double-talk or chaos that this administration wants to spread. It is all about manipulating everyone even his own supporters. Barrack Hussein Obama will say and do anything to retain power and control HIS destiny, same thinking as the Taliban.

    This just shows how ridiculous this “Occupier of the WH” and his people are. They finally admit that this is a baby, a human being, even if only for WH “numbers”. This gives them no excuse for allowing abortion then. A baby has just as many rights to life inside the womb.
    Just like another post said, he will say or do anything to retain power.

    Obama and his cronies speak with “fork-ed tongue”. Just last week in an on-air interview he said he was a “Christian” and was opposed to gay marriage. Today he announced that he was in favor of gay marriage. How typical of this administation. Shame on them.

    My dad used to tell us we were 9 months old when we were born. I suppose that we believed that at conception was a human being.

    “Fetus” L. a life; [L.] the developing young in the uterus, specifically the unborn offspring, etc. NOT JUST TISSUE

    This administration continues to expose how absolutely incompetent and unprofessional they are as they continue to poke a stick into their own eyes. It is amazing..pure bush league behavior. We need to kick them all out in November and bring in Romney and some experienced adults to get control of our country before it is a lost cause. This article to me, is the final stupid move that seals the deal completely and I do not have to watch another TV show or political ad. I intend to basically vote a straight Republican ticket or the first time in my life.
