Two Questions for Obama

1. If you really believe that abortion is a great good for society that you and the government must protect and even fund for other nations, then why insist that it should be safe, legal, and rare? Should abortion be available to all mothers in all situations as you have promoted by vetoing the Partial Birth Abortion Act and the Infants Born Alive Act, by rescinding the Mexico City policy, and by your promises regarding the Freedom of Choice Act to Planned Parenthood? Or should it be rare, as you mentioned in your speech at Notre Dame? If, as you mentioned, it’s “a heart-wrenching decision for any woman to make, with both moral and spiritual dimensions,” why do you promote it with such fervor and reject all moral and spiritual arguments against it?
2. At Notre Dame you said regarding abortion, “. . . the fact is that at some level, the views of the two camps are irreconcilable. Each side will continue to make its case to the public with passion and conviction. But surely we can do so without reducing those with differing views to caricature.” Yet your own Department of Homeland Security has labeled pro life proponents as possible domestic terrorists. That not only caricatures Pro Life people, it demonizes them. How can demonized people freely engage in dialogue with those who demonize them? Are you ready to repudiate Napolitano’s DHS Report?
