Besides the fact that I like saying “President Obama” it is important to post this statement.  This is why I voted for the man.  He is rational, and I think this says it:

On the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose.

While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue, no matter what our views, we are united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, reduce the need for abortion, and support women and families in the choices they make. To accomplish these goals, we must work to find common ground to expand access to affordable contraception, accurate health information, and preventative services.

On this anniversary, we must also recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights and opportunities as our sons: the chance to attain a world-class education; to have fulfilling careers in any industry; to be treated fairly and paid equally for their work; and to have no limits on their dreams. That is what I want for women everywhere.

I think it important to state that no one wants abortions to happen, on the other hand, the reproductive rights of the mother (well all people…) should be paramount to a free society to function.  And, as the President points out, education and prevention should also be paramount.  Maybe if you pro-life fucktards actually worked to prevent abortion you wouldn’t have to get so upset when the inevitable happens.
