Obama Uses Down Syndrome Woman in New Ad… A Woman Who Would Be Aborted Under Obamacare

Barack Obama used a woman with Down Syndrome in his latest campaign ad.
It’s his latest attempt at manipulating American voters.

But… It is odd that Obama would use a Down Syndrome woman in his commercials.
After all, his administration targets Down Syndrome babies for abortion under Obamacare.
LifeNews reported:

Discussions of HHS’s new regulation have focused on the required availability of free contraceptive services under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The regulation is the result of HHS’s adopting, in its entirety, the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM) report on Clinical Preventive Services for Women. Buried in the IOM report is the recommendation for no-cost well-woman visits; these visits include prenatal care–and thus prenatal testing for “genetic or developmental conditions.” The regulation was issued as part of the PPACA’s coverage of preventive services. This prompts the question, how does prenatal testing prevent Down syndrome?

The IOM report defines preventive services “to be measures . . . shown to improve wellbeing, and/or decrease the likelihood or delay the onset of targeted disease or condition.” Down syndrome occurs at conception. Prenatal testing simply identifies whether a pregnancy is positive for Down syndrome–a prenatal diagnosis after which most women choose to terminate their pregnancy. A prenatal test does not decrease the likelihood of Down syndrome in a person; it does allow for a decreased likelihood of a person with Down syndrome surviving beyond the womb. If this is how HHS is justifying prenatal testing for Down syndrome as preventive care, then HHS has ushered in a program meant to target future children like Juliet.

The targeted elimination of people with Down syndrome is, in fact, the goal of other countries that have adopted nationwide prenatal testing programs–a goal some other countries are now realizing. Indeed, according to the Copenhagen Post, Denmark “could be a country without a single citizen with Down’s syndrome in the not too distant future,” due to its nationwide prenatal screening program, in place since 2004.

In other words, Obama is just using this woman for his political gain.

    As the father of a 30 year old Down Syndrome son, I found this abhorrent….and don’t forget that Obama also made fun of Special Olympics during the 2008 campaign, a gaffe conveniently glossed over by the mainstream media. 98% of known Trisomy fetuses are aborted…..nice. This administration is nothing but ignorant, manipulative thugs……

  • bobdog

    It’s much cheaper to abort mentally deficient fetuses than it is to feed them for years and then execute them later on in concentration camps. It is important to cleanse Aryan blood for future generations and assure that the Fatherland rises to meet its historical destiny.

    Seems like I heard this one before, back when I was a kid, but maybe not. I think it was called Eugenics back in the 20’s and 30’s. It kinda fell out of favor when they got a little carried away with the idea.

  • Finncrisp

    Creepy, very creepy. What genius came up with this angle? Disgusting.

  • bobdog

    I meant no offense to families dealing with Downs Syndrome. God bless the parents of these kids.

  • l.barney

    When my parents found out about my sister, they would not institutionalize her as the doctor suggested.
    The Great O is a two faced liar! Anyone with a relative with Downs MUST think about that come November!

    @bobdog – you are correct! It is STILL called eugenics; it is a “cleansing of the gene pool” of “undesirable” or “inferior” lives. Horrible, heartless, eugenics. And yes, the Nazis implemented much of these policies……as did the US under Wilson and other so-called “Progressives” – to our shame.

    Not babies. Not lives. Not people. Not individuals who are loving – and loved. Oh, no. the so-called “compassionate” leftists once again they have evil, dark, dead hearts – made of putrefied flesh-become-stone.

    Margaret Sanger’s dream comes true, in a whole new era, under ObamaCare.

    Repeal it ALL – in its ENTIRETY!!

    This ad produced by the same democrat-pricks that said Sarah Palin should’ve aborted Trig Palin.

    Shameless scum these democrats.

  • Ken

    I have a question about this ad. My great uncle is in a Texas nursing home. He cannot vote because of his condition. He can talk about real events in real time, he’s just slow. I wish he could vote, but the fact is the state took that right from him. How did this girl keep her right to vote?

    The irony is that under Obama’s policies, there will be no $ left to pay legitimate social security disability payments to this young exploited woman, as well as thousands of others (including my child) because we are too busy doling out $ to those whose unemployment ran out and are now on disability. This man has no shame…. as a parent of a severely cognitively disabled 16 year old, I am appalled.

    Am I wrong, or are there self sufficient Down Syndrome adults living their lives. Earning money at a job, paying rent, going to the movies, starring in movies and tv shows.

    Pretty sure I saw some on the high school basketball team and football team. They’re intelligent human beings who tend to enjoy living.

    Bobdog said it:

    (Oct. 1, Gallup has Obama approval at 47%. Oooh, that’s gotta hurt).

  • greenfairie

    There’s no way she wrote that letter, some exploitative hack did while her ideological parents made her the face of this tasteless piece. (Or did they?)

    Poor Brittany doesn’t know that it’s the Democratic party’s policies and Obama’s anti-life philosophy that have resulted in the genocide of her kind.

  • Big Al

    At long last, democrat scum, have you no shame?

  • these were not the people romney was talking about but why let the truth get in the way of a good political lie.

  • I’m not sure which argument is more ridiculous.
    Obviously Romney did not say or even imply that people like Brittany are entitled.

    However, conflating this story with abortion is equally despicable.

    Ridiculous is ridiculous, no matter who says it.

    Has anyone seen the recent video of obama thugs attacking a mentally slow White female in filly?

    1. Very few people grudge Brittney her government assistance because she can’t take responsibility for herself. There are a small number among the 47% who really can’t manage for themselves.
    2. That said, it is not a federal responsibility to provide charity. The authors of the Constitution did not want the federal government to distribute aid of this kind; if any levels of government were to do so, it was to be the state or county, the governments closest to the members of the community.
    3. My parents did provide for two children (of eight) who can’t provide for themselves (no, not me). But they had the resources and many have too few resources to do so.
    4. Medicare and Social Security force a large number of people into dependence. Rather than viable financial products, they are legislative fiats at the whims of the legislature. That is a poor plan for security.

    And once the objective is achieved, Obie and Democrats like him discard the dupes like so much rubbish.

    Are Brittany and her parents aware of this?:

    The Obamacare “Special Needs Kids Tax” – a $13 billion tax increase: The 30-35 million Americans who use a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) at work to pay for their family’s basic medical needs will face a new government cap of $2,500 (currently the accounts are unlimited under federal law, though employers are allowed to set a cap).
    There is one group of FSA owners for whom this new cap will be particularly cruel and onerous: parents of special needs children. There are several million families with special needs children in the United States, and many of them use FSAs to pay for special needs education. Tuition rates at one leading school that teaches special needs children in Washington, D.C. (National Child Research Center) can easily exceed $14,000 per year. Under tax rules, FSA dollars can be used to pay for this type of special needs education. This Obamacare tax provision will limit the options available to these families.

    Well they’ll never isolate a gene for homosexuality because they don’t understand genetics when they say it’s genetic.

    Anybody that thinks the Down Syndrome babies wouldn’t be targeted for abortion doesn’t know the enemy very well. They really don’t need much of an excuse to want someone dead.

  • olm

    Wow, honey, go ahead and vote Democrat, but under their policies you would not be alive. Someone on the left has got to understand how uttterly sick this is.
    Maybe not……….that’s how we got Obama in the first place, right?

  • JPeden

    Give that she looks like she probably has Downs Syndrome, either Brittany didn’t write the letter, or she is not significantly disabled by her Downs Syndrome and therefore not a permanently disabled victim “shamelessly blamed by Romney for her unavoidable disability”, which is what the the Progressives want us to think despite her apparent ability./ Another case of malevolent Progressive gibberish…

  • Limousine Barry

    Once I get this lady’s pre-filled-out absentee ballot she is history! My 0bamaCare will give her some end of life counseling and Dehydration with Dignity! Into the oven she goes!

    Besides, I can’t run for a third term. So why not get her vote and terminate her!

    Forgive me if I’m incorrect, but isn’t abortion a personal decision? I am very close friends with someone with downs. He’s a great person who has significantly impacted my life for the better. But just because ObamaCare would allow for prenatal testing, does not mean everyone is going to have an abortion if the test comes back positive. And if they do, that choice is on the mother, not the president.

  • Lisa

    This is being so miscontrued. Obama isn’t forcing people to abort fetuses with Down Syndrome!! He is simply offering the parents the CHOICE! How do you all not see that Romney will take away your right to choose! Never mind the moral arguments (FTR I would never abort a baby due to down syndrome diagnosis) at the end of the day the parents of the disabled fetus should most definately have a say in something that will dramatically affect their life forever!!
