What if Mother Mary Had Obamacare? – by Chuck Norris
What would have happened if Mother Mary had been covered by Obamacare? What if that young, poor and uninsured teenage woman had been provided the federal funds (via Obamacare) and facilities (via Planned Parenthood, etc.) to avoid the ridicule, ostracizing, persecution and possible stoning because of her out-of-wedlock pregnancy? Imagine all the great souls who could have been erased from history and the influence of mankind if their parents had been as progressive as Washington’s wise men and women! Will Obamacare morph into Herodcare for the unborn?
Why would Mother Mary need to “avoid the ridicule, ostracizing, persecution and possible stoning because of her out-of-wedlock pregnancy?” Because of fundamentalists following Bible verses like this:
Deuteronomy 22:20-21 – “If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil from among you.”
If Mother Mary Had Obamacare, she would not face stoning and her child would have been born in a hospital instead of a barn.
