Obama’s speech at Notre Dame’s graduation ceremony garnered a lot of attention. Both good and bad.
The abortion debate being the central focus for many…
Statements made during his speech basically reiterated what so many in the Pro-Life (or “Anti-Abortion” depending on how the news slants) camp have been saying for years – but have been “shushed” by so many social experts as “impossible,” “unlikely,” even “intolerant.”
Obama suggests we reduce the number of women seeking abortions, reduce unplanned pregnancy, make adoption more available, etc.
Pro-Life advocates have promoted and expanded education about pregnancy, abortion, adoption and more – but have been told that pushing their religious beliefs down someone’s throat is intolerant. (Because apparently pro-life education cannot be made without religious reference.)
Pro-Life advocates have always promoted abstinence – but have always been told abstinence is a pipe dream and kids will do what kids will do.
Pro-Life advocates have worked to promote adoption as a “loving option” and yet adoption is still shrouded in mystery with seeming emphasis on the unsuccessful rather than the successful…
Considering this recent poll, I am not only anxious to hear President Obama’s suggestions for how “we” should implement these things, but also what Americans are going to do about it.
