A pregnant woman in labor was not permitted to cross the street to the hospital because of Obama’s motorcade on Wednesday. The unidentified Los Angeles woman was just a few hundred feet from the hospital when she was stopped by police as she suffered excruciating labor pains.
“I felt bad for her,”witness Carrie Clifford told The Blaze. “It does happen when Obama comes to L.A. or I’m sure anywhere else. It paralyzes the city, it does make it complicated.”
“You can’t do the things you had set out to do because the president is in town,” she added.
Video shows the pregnant woman, clearly in pain, sitting on a bench as she waits for the motorcade to pass. The footage also shows a police officer explaining that they will get the woman across the street as soon as they can, but for now she will need to wait for His Majesty Obama to pass.
Witnesses left the scene before the situation was resolved. Hopefully, the woman made it to the hospital in time. It’s really every parent’s worst nightmare to have the life of your child in Obama’s hands…
