Obama Takes Aim at Pro-Life Policies

Planned Parenthood expects to see ‘real change.’
Americans won’t have to wait for liberal nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court to undermine pro-life policies: President-elect Barack Obama reportedly is set to begin his attack on life during his first days in office.
The Hall of Fame Steering Committee nominated “Focus on the Family” for the honor in May and, for the first time, allowed the public to vote. More than 50,000 people cast their votes for Dr. Dobson — the largest vote total in the group’s history.
Obama pledged during the campaign that one of his first acts in office would be to sign the Freedom of Choice Act if it hits his desk, a bill that would overturn many state abortion regulations such as parental notification and waiting periods.
He also is expected to rescind Bush administration restrictions on the use of federal funds for embryonic stem-cell research, and for abortions and abortion referrals by international agencies.
