Refusing to speak to pro-life advocates in today’s March for Life, Obama made a statement that reiterated his support for Roe V. Wade: “We are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose.”
It is suspected that President Obama will soon issue an executive order reversing the Bush administration policy that bans the use of federal dollars by non-govermental organizations that discuss or provide abortions outside of the United States. It was thought that Obama would sign the executive order on the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states.
Some of us are going to really miss President George W. Bush.
