“Not Pro-Abortion”

This has been a rough week for many of my pro-life sisters and brothers. Their single-minded focus doesn’t seem to be getting the love from L’Osservatore Romano. There’s a strategic advantage to being a radical anarchic liberal rebel from authority. We just don’t listen to those in charge. We would just pass by this comment:

Obama has not upset the world. His speech at Notre Dame has been respectful toward every position. He tried to engage the debate stepping out from every ideological position and outside every ‘confrontational mentality.’ To this extent his speech is to be appreciated.

Let me be clear, L’Osservatore stands where the American bishops are: we consider abortion a disaster. We must promote, always and at every level a ‘culture of life’.

What I want to stress is that yesterday, on this precise and very delicate issue, the President said that the approval of the new law on abortion is not a priority of his administration. The fact that he said that is very reassuring to me. It also underlines my own clear belief: Obama is not a pro-abortion president.

    And you believe him? LOL!

    One might ask who’s laughing at whom. Anti-abortion folks were ready to believe one clip on FOCA, and look how much money and how little legislative action that has generated.

    FOCA is still good for a chuckle once or twice a week for me. Some priority to have disappeared after four months.
