 ==== ====Obama Debt Ceiling Letter FINAL Free download now!!!! Free downloadhttp://uploading.com/files/ac3f9376/Obama-Debt-Ceiling-Letter-FINAL.pdf/  ==== ====It has been over 35 years since the controversial Roe v Wade Supreme Court (7-2) decision tomake early term abortions legal in the US. Despite the landmark decision in 1973 abortion rightsare still being vigorously contested in many quarters of the country. For those against abortionmainly for religious beliefs but also for profound moral reasons argue that abortion as defined byRoe is the willful taking of a precious human life endowed with all the rights, privileges, andprotections guaranteed everyone by our government. On the other side those in favor of the rightto abortion argue that women should have control over their own bodies making it an issue ofprivacy; a personal decision that should not be privy to our government. These disparate andcontentious points of view underscore the essence of the debate that has been ongoing for nearlyfour decades and in all likelihood will continue to rage on for the foreseeable future certainlythrough and beyond the Obama administration. So where does our newly elected "post partisan" President stand on this inflammatory issue ofabortion? As the most liberal democrat while in the US Senate, Obama strongly supports awomen's right to choose to terminate her pregnancy for any reason through legal and safeabortion procedures as defined by Roe. If you accept his voting record as well as his publicspeeches and policy statements, Obama will apparently do just about anything and everything hecan to preserve a women's right to affordable and unfettered abortion on demand as promoted bytax subsidized abortion providers like Planned Parenthood. Indeed, Obama's explicit evenenthusiastic support for abortion on demand has rightly earned him a 100% rating from NARAL(National Abortion & Reproductive Rights Action League) Pro-Choice America as well as anenthusiastic endorsement from Planned Parenthood the largest abortion provider in the US. Incontrast, Obama not surprisingly has received a rating of 0% by the NRLC (National Right to LifeCommittee) the largest and most influential nonprofit prolife advocacy organization. Obama's wife Michelle who is his closest political advisor is also pro choice and strongly supportsa women's right to abortion on deman. Like her husband Mrs. Obama who also graduated fromHarvard law school holds extreme views on abortion and wrote a controversial fund raising letterdefending a partial birth abortion procedure known as "intact dilation and evacuation", acontentious late-term abortion technique. In her letter she called partial birth abortion a "legitimatemedical procedure" and declared the federal ban "a flawed law" that "is clearly unconstitutional".However, the Supreme Court in 2007 disagreed with her albeit narrowly upholding the ban with avote of 5-4. As for Obama's voting record as an Illinois legislator he opposed the bill to ban partial birthabortion and the state's "Born Alive Infants Protection Act" that ensures the rights of children whosurvive failed abortion attempts. He also voted against legislation banning state funding forabortions. In fact Obama has never supported any limitation of abortion to either lessen itsavailability or reduce its public funding. He has made it unambiguously clear that he opposes any
 
and all government restrictions on abortion, including partial-birth abortions. Obama even stronglycriticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the federal law banning partial-birth abortion andin 2007 also voted to expand research on embryonic stem cells. Obama seems to hold a ratherextreme position on abortion that is widely considered outside the mainstream. Most Americanssupport for abortion is highly conditional and overwhelmingly (71%) reject unrestricted abortionviewing abortion as a profound moral issue that should be limited with reasonable regulation bythe government preferably at the state and local levels. Only about 28% of Americans supportabortion at any time for any reason. To circumvent the mainstream Obama along with 18 other pro abortion senators has sponsoredthe Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) and in July 2007 Obama gave an impassioned speech to aPlanned Parenthood Action Fund event promising "The first thing I'd do as president is sign theFreedom of Choice Act." The passage of FOCA would essentially nullify every federal, state, andlocal law limiting or regulating abortion including the Hyde Amendment prohibiting federal fundingof abortion and the current federal ban on partial birth abortions signed into law in 2003 byPresident Bush. FOCA besides making abortion on demand a "fundamental right" throughout theUnited States would simultaneously invalidate all laws on informed consent and parentalnotification as well as any mandatory waiting periods. It also would eliminate all state restrictionson taxpayer funding of abortions and health safety regulations for abortion clinics. Moreover, inopposition to the first amendment it would require for the first time Catholic and other religioushospitals to provide abortions. Perhaps Obama's most personally revealing statement regarding abortion was when he said if hisdaughters "make a mistake, I don't want them punished with a baby." Not exactly a ringingendorsement for family values. In another interview when asked when life begins Obama gliblyreplied "I don't know" that "is above my pay grade". Now as the 44th President of the UnitedStates and new commander in chief, it is surely no longer above his pay grade since he will likelyhave the opportunity to select the next Supreme Court justice. As for the type of justices he mightchoose, Obama believes the constitution is a "living document" and is likely to appoint liberal nonstrict constructionalist to the bench along the lines of Breyer, Ginsberg, and Souter. Obama votedagainst both of Bush's appointments, Chief Justice John Roberts and Sam Alito each confirmed bycomfortable senate margins. Obama's constitutional philosophy on Supreme Court appointments was aptly revealed when heimplored that "we need someone who's got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it is like tobe a young teenage mom". He elaborated saying "the empathy to understand what it's like to bepoor, or African American, or gay, or disabled, or old. And that's the criteria by which I'm going tobe selecting my judges." Empathy means "judicial activism" and seems a strange criterion bywhich to select judges for an intellectual who taught constitutional law for a decade. Ironically,Obama claims he would not have appointed Clarence Thomas, who's only the second AfricanAmerican ever appointed to the court, saying Thomas "was not a strong enough jurist or legalthinker". Obama orchestrated a brilliant "cult of personality" campaign centered on the banal platitudes ofHOPE and CHANGE. His charismatic persona, soaring rhetoric, and ubiquitous campaign slogansof "Change We Can Believe In" and "Audacity of Hope" were overarching themes on which hebuilt his bipartisan presidential bid. Let's all "hope" Obama as "the one we've been waiting for" willindeed bring "change" but not just to America but also to himself with a repudiation of his militant
