Let’s get a few things straight . . .


There are a lot of misconceptions floating around out there regarding the Obama/Biden campaign and its views regarding women’s reproductive health (among other things, obviously. In case you were curious, Barack Obama was named after his Muslim grandfather and is a practicing Christian). The Obama for America website is very comprehensive when it comes to searching campaign policy (you should check it out), covering everything from taxes and technology to ethics and faith. Straight from the Blueprint for Change, the Obama/Biden campaign will:

Support a Woman’s Right to Choose:

Barack Obama understands that abortion is a divisive issue, and respects those who disagree with him. However, he has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women’s rights under Roe v. Wade a priority as President. He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision in that case.

Help Americans Learn How to Prevent Unintended Pregnancy:

Barack Obama is an original co-sponsor of legislation to expand access to contraception, health information and preventive services to help reduce unintended pregnancies. Introduced in January 2007, the Prevention First Act will increase funding for family planning and comprehensive sex education that teaches both abstinence and safe sex methods. The Act will also end insurance discrimination against contraception, improve awareness about emergency contraception, and provide compassionate assistance to rape victims.
