White House tours require unborn children to be registered

While President Barack Obama may be opposed to any piece of prolife legislation and believes that recognizing when life begins is "above his paygrade," the White House Visitors Office requires expectant mothers to register their unborn children when they sign up for a tour. The Washington Free Beacon reports on an e-mail from White House Visitors Office director Ellie Schafer which describes how pregnant women should register their unborn children before a White House tour and a soon to born child should be part of the count of tour guests. The e-mail even refers to unborn children as babies.

The e-mail reads, in part:
We have received a number of calls regarding how to enter security information for a baby that has not yet been born.

Crazy as it may sound, you MUST include the baby in the overall count of guests in the tour. It's an easy process.

LAST NAME: The family's last name

FIRST NAME: "Baby" as a first name
MIDDLE NAME: NMN as in No Middle Name
DOB: Use the date you are submitting the request to us as their birthday
GENDER: if the parents know put that gender down if not, you can enter either M or F as we'll ask you to update it at the time of birth.
