Obama Endorsed By NARAL Pro-Choice America’s Political Action Committee

One of the many lies spread by Clinton supporters is that Obama has been weak on supporting choice. Hopefully this smear, along with the entire Clinton campaign, is coming to an end. Helping debunk this smear, NARAL Pro-Choice America‘s political action committee endorsed Barack Obama:

Sen. Obama has been a strong advocate for a woman’s right to choose throughout his career in public service. Since joining the Senate in 2005, he has worked to unite Americans on both sides of this debate behind commonsense, common-ground ways to prevent unintended pregnancy. He supports legislation to provide our teens with comprehensive sex education, prevent pharmacies from denying women access to their legal birth-control prescriptions, and increase access for family-planning services.

Sen. Obama has said, “A woman’s ability to decide how many children to have and when, without interference from the government, is one of the most fundamental rights we possess. It is not just an issue of choice, but equality and opportunity for all women.”

Further, I believe Sen. Obama is going to be the Democratic nominee. He leads in pledged delegates, superdelegates, the popular vote, and cash-on-hand. As a former elected official, I know that having the three “m’s” of a campaign – money, message and manpower (or womanpower!) – are how we win elections. Sen. Obama will be our next president.

    I find it the saddest statement to the state of our nation when we are watching, before our eyes, our established rights being decimated, our going backwards on civil and women’s rights, and generally being usurped by corporate America for American people.
    Women are not chattel.  We do not belong to anyone.  We are not beholden to men for anything.  Whether we decide to stay at home and be mothers or participate in the working world for a salary, that is our choice.   I am tired of the ongoing discussion of a woman’s place in society.  Have we not gone past that?
    I saw a button when I was in DC once that said:  If men could get pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament.
    Women who are forced into having children which they cannot care for create situations for extreme poverty for both the mother and the children.  This makes both the woman and the child pawns.  It is unfair and it is wrong.
    God help this country (in all respects, not just women’s rights) if any gooper wins this next election, at any level.
