Update

Hillary and off the table Pelosi issued statements on this

.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Sen. Hillary Clinton have already issued blistering statements warning that the definition of abortion would extend to birth control that is regularly covered.

B0 is still thinking about it….

First the news of Jr’s government pulling all the stops:

In a spectacular act of complicity with the religious right, the Department of Health and Human Services Monday released a proposal that allows any federal grant recipient to obstruct a woman’s access to contraception. In order to do this, the Department is attempting to redefine many forms of contraception, the birth control 40% of Americans use, as abortion.

That is bad and underhanded enough – but makes me think that only 2 days ago B0 was deciding to also “underplay abortion”

By shifting his focus toward pay issues and away from abortion, Obama places himself in a far less polarized environment, and steers clear of the “ick factor” that many Americans, regardless of their political views, associate with the practice of abortion.

which seems to be just what this guy wanted

Abortion reduction should be a central Democratic Party plank in this election,

let’s see, flip-flop boy, will you issue a statement on that one, or stick with equal pay in spite of the fact that your own female staffers are paid less than men?
