Just the day when Rick Warren was praising Obama on his “courage” to stand up to his base and Jon Favreau became object of jealousy

W finally issued the announced blow to Roe rule designated to

protectΒ  health care providers who oppose abortion and other medical procedures on religious or moral grounds.

Because one should not have to bomb abortion clinics unprotected.

The timing was perfect

The measures announced on Thursday, sometimes described collectively as the β€œconscience rule,” were issued just in time to take effect before the start of the new administration. They will go into effect 30 days after their publication in the Federal Register on Friday.

Because now

The Bush administration had signaled its intention to issue the measures, which are part of a flurry of regulations it is announcing before President-elect Barack Obama takes office. The new president will be able to undo the regulations, and is virtually certain to, given his previous comments on the issue. But undoing them will be a time-consuming process.

Recipients of funds from the Department of Health and Human Services are required to certify their compliance with the rule by October 2009.

So, let’s see who will be willing to consume their time.

W managed to leave the stinker behind while avoiding a red flag issue that would have brought out voters for McCain

I will not hold my breath for the Favreau administration to give a rats ass.
