Subsidizng Irresponsibility

Regarding the punitive consequences for those that do not acquire health insurance, Obama said this to Jake Tapper.
"I think the general principle is simply that people who are paying for their health insurance aren't subsidizing folks who simply choose not to until they get sick and then suddenly they expect free health insurance. That's - that's the basic concept of responsibility that most Americans abide by," Mr. Obama said, "Penalties are in place for people who try and free ride the system and force others to pay for their health insurance."
If you really believe in the basic concept of responsibility, Mr. President, then those have an abortion should be required to purchase abortion insurance or face jail time and strict fines. Getting pregnant is the arguably one of the most preventable medical conditions. Why should responsible taxpayers subsidize immature fools who simply choose irresponsible behavior and get pregnant and then suddenly expect the the federal government (taxpayers) to pay for their abortion?

Using Obama's own logic, penalties should be in place for people who try and free ride the system and force others to pay for their abortion, which many believe is a selfish act of murder.

Obama once said that if his daughters make a mistake and get pregnant he doesn't want them "punished with a baby." Instead, it seems he'd rather punish the taxpayers and make them pay for those who make a similar "mistake" instead.
