Abortions have decline over all under Obama. I know that you hate facts. But that is a fact.
“I hate to say that people are lying, but here’s a situation where folks are lying. I have said repeatedly that I would have been completely in, fully in support of the federal bill that everybody supported — which was to say — that you should provide assistance to any infant that was born — even if it was as a consequence of an induced abortion. That was not the bill that was presented at the state level. What that bill also was doing was trying to undermine Roe vs. Wade.” President Obama
He voted against the sham bill. His comments are clear that he would have voted to a bill that actually protected children born alive. The far right wing fringe would not allow the compromise bill to get a vote. They wanted a bill that addressed Roe v Wade-not a real bill to actually protect children born alive.
The bottom line is that Obama does not support or promote late term abortions. Neither do I. The fact is that abortions have declined under the Obama administration. I would think that this is a good thing. None of the recent Republican presidents did anything to reduce abortions. Obama has-by making birth control easier to get, the demand for abortions has declined. Those are the simple facts. I know that some believe that birth control is somehow the same as abortion-but is isn't. The facts are the facts. You have the right to your own opinion-but not your own facts.
Obama’s objections to the bill suggest that he wasn’t so much bent on denying rights to newborns as wanting to block any legislation that could erode the premise of the Roe v. Wade decision.
For example: Tea Party in Wisconsin said: "Obama is the HIGH PRIEST of Abortion" My point is that the comment is not true. Abortions have DROPPED under Obama.
Really just a half truth. Sorting through the actual facts is hard. Listening to Rush and Glenn Beck is easy.
Look it up. The article does cite sources. WARNING: none of the sources are Rush or Glenn Beck or any other far right wing fringe talk show host. I know that you hate facts. But they speak for themselves sometimes.

U.S. abortion rate falls 5% in 2012-biggest drop in a decade. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2012/11/21/usa-abortion-rate/1719583/ So much for the theory that Obama is somehow creating more abortions!
Just like GW and Reagan and Bush #1.
