Obama and the woman-haters

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jul 16, 2012

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who chairs the Democratic National Committee, explains to the world why all Jewish Americans should support President Obama:

…the president has an incredible record of support and advocacy on the issues, domestically, that Jews care about–fighting, for example, to make sure that women have the right to make their own reproductive choices; fighting to pass the Affordable Care Act, to make sure that being a woman is not a pre-existing condition…

Never mind the grotesque suggestion Jews should back a politician who supports the killing of the innocent. Let’s zero in on that puzzling phrase, “that being a woman is not a pre-existing condition.”

First, being a woman is not a “condition” that requires medical treatment. Yes, women are often treated for certain specific conditions that do not bother men, and vice versa. But being a woman is not a disease.

And a “pre-existing” condition? No, being a woman--being female, that is—is a condition that makes itself manifest as soon as human life begins. At conception, that is. The features are not yet evident, but the chromosomes dictate that the unborn child will be female.

Some people, when they see those telltale chromosomes, decide to abort. The female gender of the baby is a “condition” they cannot tolerate. These are the ultimate woman-haters. And President Obama has been instrumental in ensuring that federal tax dollars continue to flow into the coffers of the very powerful organization that helps people who treat womanhood as a “pre-existing condition” to fulfill their goal of eradicating it.
