This will not make pro-life Republican voters happy. On Tuesday, Barack Obama was questioned on Abortion and his answers will suprise most people. Michelle Malkin calls his response “callous” and I think many voters will agree.

Out in western Pennsylvania, the issue of abortion can strike a nerve. Democrats there often describe themselves economic liberals and social conservatives who favor gun rights and oppose abortion rights.

So, it was not unusual to see a woman stand near the end of Barack Obama’s town hall meeting in Johnstown, Penn., and offer a hurried, passionate plea for him to “stop these abortions.”

…The exchange appeared to be prompted by Obama’s earlier comments that he does not favor abstinence-only education, but rather comprehensive sexual education that includes information on abstinence and birth control.

“Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby. I don’t want them punished with an STD at age 16, so it doesn’t make sense to not give them information.”

Its interesting that during a recession, a war, and an otherwise tight race, abortion would be an issue but nonetheless calling a baby a punishment and thereby arguing for abortion this is a pretty extreme view. What are your thoughts on babies as a punishment and therefore justifying abortion?
