Happy Abortion Day, from the White House:
Today we recognize the 37th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, which affirms every woman’s fundamental constitutional right to choose whether to have an abortion, as well as each American’s right to privacy from government intrusion. I have, and continue to, support these constitutional rights.
I also remain committed to working with people of good will to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and families, and strengthen the adoption system.
Today and every day, we must strive to ensure that all women have limitless opportunities to fulfill their dreams.
“Limitless opportunities”. If only we could all selectively disregard whatever life outcomes and moral responsibilities stand in the way of the pursuit of our dreams.
Well, at least we now know that the President also believes his health care plan is unconstitutional. What greater “government intrusion” could there ever be than mandating participation in a health care system controlled by the federal government?
Update: just realized the Roe v. Wade anniversary was on 1/22. It’s not a day I have marked on my calendar.
