The editor of L'Osservatore Romano contends that, because Obama is not passing FOCA, he is not a pro-abortion president.
“Obama has not upset the world,” he said. “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.”
Vian continued, “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 [abortista -- "abortionist"] president,” he told Rodari.
Let's be very clear about this. Passing FOCA would make Obama a pro-abortion extremist. Not passing it means he's still very much pro-abortion. Reducing abortions is not the same as ending abortion. Let's applaud any reduction in numbers while still praying for an end to the human rights violations of the abortion industry and an end to the eugenics policies of our nation.
