Obama on Roe v Wade

On the 38th anniversary of the US Supreme Court decision that invalidated most laws against abortion, Acting President Obama announced:
Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women's health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I am committed to protecting this constitutional right.
Ummm, Mr. Acting President, why is killing an unborn human being a "private family matter" and a "constitutional right" yet killing a day-old human being is an egregious crime?

Why is killing an unborn human being a "private family matter" yet a parent slapping an unruly child on the butt is a sufficiently serious domestic violence crime as to deny a parent something that actually is a constitutionally guaranteed right and to justify removal of the child from the home?

Why is the "private family matter" of abortion not also classified as domestic violence since, by definition, it results in the death of a family member?

In the 38 years since the Roe v Wade decision, we have killed an estimated 53 million children through abortion. We lose more children to abortion each day than we lost in all the tragedies on September 11, 2001!

Abortion is not about a woman's right to control her own body, as its advocates say while ignoring the child's right to "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness" which was "endowed by their Creator". The bottom line is that abortion is about selfishness and a woman's willingness to toss her family into the the trash heap of our modern throw-away society like an old Styrofoam cup.

Mr. Acting President, don't you think the government's (and your) understanding of, and intrusion into, "private family matters" is a bit distorted -- even evil?
