Now it Begins: On the Eve of the Anniversary of Roe v. Wade

"President Obama... will make preserving women's rights under Roe v. Wade a priority in his Adminstration."

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Catholic Online) - On the day on which the 44th President of the United States, Barack Obama, took the oath of Office the White House Web Site was immediately updated.

Here are two extremely important paragraphs for all Americans, and citizens around the world, who recognize the truth that the taking of innocent human life in the womb is an egregious and intrinsic evil which violates the Natural Law Right to Life.

Under the section of the web site considering the President’s “Agenda on Women" we read these straightforward words concerning his support for a number of initiatives. Included among them are the following:

“Reproductive Choice

(The President) Supports a Woman's Right to Choose: President Obama understands that abortion is a divisive issue, and respects those who disagree with him. However, he has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women's rights under Roe v. Wade a priority in his Adminstration. He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's decision in that case.

(The President Supports) Preventing Unintended Pregnancy: President Obama was an original co-sponsor of legislation to expand access to contraception, health information, and preventive services to help reduce unintended pregnancies. Introduced in January 2007, the Prevention First Act will increase funding for family planning and comprehensive sex education that teaches both abstinence and safe sex methods. The Act will also end insurance discrimination against contraception, improve awareness about emergency contraception, and provide compassionate assistance to rape victims.”

Now it Begins.
