Obama Praises Abortion on Roe 41st Anniversary

As hundreds of thousands of pro-life Americans marched on Washington D.C., the abortion-loving President Obama said of the Supreme Court's 1973 abortion ruling "we recommit ourselves to the decision’s guiding principle" -- it is right that over 56 million American babies have been murdered in the womb, so far.

For background, read how Pro-lifers Crowded D.C. last year, just like in previous years, and read about the history of President Obama's abortion advocacy.

From "Statement by the President on Roe v. Wade Anniversary" posted at 1/22/14

Today, as we reflect on the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, we recommit ourselves to the decision’s guiding principle: that every woman should be able to make her own choices about her body and her health.  . . .  Because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams [except for babies in the womb!].

The world’s largest anti­abortion event, held on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, grows younger each year. The Mall between Seventh Street and the Washington Monument was full for a few hours with youth groups from across the eastern half of the country.

Abortion has been legal in the United States for these young people’s entire lives, and the movement’s leaders say the latest generation of activists is creating a more upbeat culture. . . .

The March for Life is the culmination each year of several days of meetings, Masses and training sessions for abortion opponents. Included was a workshop Wednesday morning for anti­abortion bloggers at the Family Research Council.

From "'We Are Winning' the Fight Against Abortion, Says Rep. Chris Smith at 41st Annual March for Life Rally" by Michael Gryboski, Christian Post Reporter 1/22/14

"By the grace of God and because of you … we are winning," declared [New Jersey Republican Congressman Chris] Smith, whose House Bill 7, or the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," will soon be up for a vote in the House of Representatives.

"To the youth, especially, never quit or grow weary or discouraged. Your generation will end abortion."

Tom Hogan, grand marshal for the 2014 March for Life and longtime supporter of the pro-life cause, told The Christian Post about the strength of the march, despite the frigid weather.

"There is a big movement across the United States and particularly from younger people. Every year I notice in the march that the age group gets younger and younger," said Hogan. "I would say also that it seems to be that mostly at the state legislatures or state level that a lot of this is going on. I don't see it at the federal level."

From "Parties Seize on Abortion Issues in Midterm Race" by Jeremy W. Petersjan, New York Times 1/20/14

Abortion is becoming an unexpectedly animating issue in the 2014 midterm elections. Republicans, through state ballot initiatives and legislation in Congress, are using it to stoke enthusiasm among core supporters. Democrats, mindful of how potent the subject has been in recent campaigns like last year’s governor’s race in Virginia, are looking to rally female voters by portraying their conservative opponents as callous on women’s issues.

Aware that their candidates at times have struck the wrong tone on issues of women’s health, Republicans in some states are now framing abortion in an economic context, arguing, for example, that the new federal health law uses public money to subsidize abortion coverage. In the House in the coming weeks, Republicans will make passing the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” one of their top priorities this year.

“I don’t think this is a niche issue anymore,” said Drew Lieberman, a vice president at Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, a political consultancy concern, who has advised Democratic congressional candidates and has done polling for Naral Pro-Choice America.
