I didn’t participate in the 2009 Blog for Choice event this year, marking the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. However, following quickly on its heels comes a reason to celebrate: President Obama has signed an executive order reversing the Bush policy of denying U.S. funding to international health and family planning organizations that provided any information, counseling, or referrals related to abortion. Lifting the gag order will save women’s lives.
Oh, and have a mentioned recently how much I love Frances Kissling?
To ask . . . women to wait another day for Obama to reverse this policy in order to satisfy the fake “common ground” prolife religious progressives suggest – prevention without contraception – is disrespectful of women’s lives, let alone their moral autonomy.
