First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS), Michelle Obama, has a long track record of supporting abortion in all nine months of pregnancy.
According to Jill Stanek, RN, “in February 2004, Michelle Obama wrote a fundraising letter during her husband’s 2004 U.S. Senate campaign claiming the partial birth abortion ban ‘is clearly unconstitutional’ and ‘a flawed law.’”
So why does her website “Let’s Move” espouse fetal nutrition? Why would she go so far as to even call “it” a baby when she has no problem terminating a child in his or her third trimester?
According to FLOTUS’ Let’s Move web site’s, MyPlate Plan for Nursing Moms and Moms-to-Be, “When a woman is pregnant or breastfeeding, she has special nutritional needs that can have a huge impact on the health of her baby. The Choose MyPlate Plan for Moms shows the foods and amounts that are right during pregnancy and when you are breastfeeding.”
But if the fetus is not a baby and can be terminated at any point during the pregnancy, then why would FLOTUS care whether the fetus is receiving proper nutrition in the womb?
The only theory we are left with is that the first lady knows that proper nutrition prior, during, and after pregnancy is important because the fetus is a living, growing, human being inside the mother. This is a common mixed message that those who advocate for abortion send and reason why their antiquated arguments, that the “fetus” is not a baby, no longer work.
