With brutal predictability, President Obama re-re-recommitted himself to unconditional abortion rights over this past weekend which witnessed the 38th anniversary or Roe v. Wade (emphasis mine):
“Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption. And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.” [WhiteHouse.gov]
Remember the context in which the President has chosen to re-re-recommit himself to unlimited abortion-on-demand:
In the wake of the findings that 41% of pregnancies in New York City now end in abortion.
In the wake of 53+ million children having been legally killed since Roe v. Wade.
In the wake of promising Catholics across the country that he was committed to “dialogue” on the abortion issue, when he clearly never intends to change his views.
In the wake of the unspeakable horrors committed by late-term abortionist Dr. Kermit Gosnell in Philadelphia, an extreme method of killing the unborn (and in the case of Dr. Kermit, the born alive) which the President has previously defended unambiguously.
As hundreds of thousands of young people brave some of DC’s worst winter cold today on the national mall, we need to get serious about democratically removing those who are sitting in the warmth of the Oval Office and continue to carry on Roe’s lethal legacy.
