Obama may repeal abortion restrictions on Thursday


CNN reports that one of President-Elect Obama’s first executive orders will be to reinstate federal funding for family planning groups that provide information, counseling, or referrals about abortion. When President Bush took office eight years ago, he reversed the policy on abortion of his predecessor, President Clinton.

Thursday marks the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. An Obama administration in support of women’s rights? What a refreshing change after the Bush’s disastrous, closed-minded administration.

As they say, change is on its way.

    This is a lop-sided debate. Women are allowed to decide to have an abortion but a man isn’t allowed to decide if he gets circumcised or not.

    Why is it that women have more rights’ than men? I can’t believe we allow women to let a man have part of his penis cut off and yet a man isn’t allowed to stop a woman from getting an abortion.

    HORRIBLE! This is not a Christian issue, this is a moral issue. A wisdom issue. A lack of intelligence. I understand one’s passion toward faith, but it’s the reason “they” don’t listen to us. If athiests were calling for an end to abortion, we might have a chance.

    We need to forget about the politics, forget about what is made “legal” and launch a high tech, national campaign movement, similiar to the one by Martin Luther King, jr. Abortion HURTS women. Women deserve REAL choices. Women deserve BETTER than abortion!

    We should all team up with an amazing campaign that Feminists for Life has started. http://www.womendeservebetter.com/

    …and *I* did not circumcise my child…he is intact.

  3. While Human LIfe International predicts that Obama’s reign will be the “most anti-life presidency” ever in the history of America, I guess they forgot the thousands of innocents killed by George. Or the 50 thousand Iraqi refugee women who have been forced into prostitution. I don’t think anyone celebrates abortion. But those who wish to celebrate National Sanctity of Life Day may find some refreshing suggestions on how to do so on my blog.
