The Obama Girls’ Health Care Choices

According to the White House, President Obama recently told a crowd of supporters:

Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood.  I think that is a bad idea.  I’ve got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices.

Umm, yeah. Two things about that.

One, if---as President Obama wills it---the president of the United States gets to determine Planned Parenthood's funding levels, then his daughters do not control their health care choices.

Two, it hardly seems that Obama's daughters---these children of The One Percent---have even the most plausible claim that low-income Americans should be forced to pay for their ... eventual ... services that Planned Parenthood provides.
