Regardless of our political disagreements with Michelle and Barack Obama, it’s hard to deny that the couple have been blessed with two adorable daughters, Malia who just turned 15-years-old, and Sasha who turned 12-years-old a few weeks back.
Malia turned 15 on the 4th of July, and she’s turning out to be a lovely young woman who carries herself with quiet grace and aplomb.
Happy Birthday Malia!
There is one thing though. When most Americans look at Miss Malia and feisty little Sasha, what they see are two fresh-faced innocents. These girls are young maidens with the world at their fingertips and life’s joys before them as they grow before the nation’s eyes from little girls into women.
Barack Obama, their father, and their mother Michelle, likely view their daughters the same way – virginal, precious, and unscathed.
However, the sad truth is that American girls are not extended the same courtesy from the President and First Lady.
Instead, 12 and 15-year-olds are viewed by the left as sex-crazed animals in need of publicly funded sex education, government gifts of contraception, and, if need be, surreptitious transportation to abortion clinics where invasive procedures are administered on them, paid for with taxpayer monies, without parental consent.
This 4th of July Malia will have a birthday party and probably enjoy a giant slice of buttercream-iced cake decorated with pastel-colored flowers that symbolize her sweetness and purity. Along side that sugary confection will be a pile of brightly wrapped presents that hopefully will bring Obama’s oldest daughter much joy.
What a shame it would be if Malia’s parents gifted her instead with a year’s supply of Plan B, and a cell phone with a speed dial that connects directly to the nearest ‘mistake-proof’ Planned Parenthood clinic – just in case. To even think such a thing about the President’s sweet girl is, quite frankly, crude and unseemly.
That’s why, this year, on Malia Obama’s birthday the nation is requesting that Mr. and Mrs. Obama extend to our preteen and teenage daughters the same respect and dignity we believe is rightly due Sasha and Malia.
