Obama: "Government should not intrude in private family matters"

Celebrating the anniversary of Row v. Wade, President Obama said, ""Government should not intrude on private family matters."

What is a "private family matter?" 

If a family wanted to allow their children to get drunk or take illegal drugs in the privacy of their own home, the government would not consider that to be a private family matter.


The government doesn't consider spousal abuse to be a private family matter.


When the government allows minors to get abortions without parental consent, haven't they intruded in a private family matter?


When Obamacare requires people to purchase health insurance, haven't they intruded in family matters?


Isn't Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign intruding in private family matters?


If a family wanted to kill their newborn child, the government wouldn't consider it to be a private family matter.


So why does President Obama think it is it wrong for government to intrude when people decide to kill their unborn child?
