An AP story today reported President Obama said in a statement that the anniversary of Roe v. Wade -- which is today-- is about more than a woman's ability to have an abortion legally:

Obama says in a statement that the court's decision also makes clear that the government "should not intrude on private family matters."

What audacity. This is the man whose signature legislation gave government more control over private family matters than ever before.

In fact, let's talk about government interference in private family matters. The government says families can't buy raw milk. The government tells families they MUST purchase health insurance. The government is trying to control what food famillies can and cannot bring to their children's school events.

Congratulations, Obama, for a shocking display of double speak that even the past three years have not prepared us for.

Steve Ertelt of LifeNews.com included more of the president's statement, which said that "we must stay united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant woman and mothers, reduce the need for abortion, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption." Ertelt gives a great response to the situation:

Obama has done everything in his power to advance abortion and continue that pro-abortion legacy of the Supreme Court, including naming two more pro-abortion jurists in Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. He has also expanded that 54 million abortions by authorizing abortion funding in various instances and decreasing funds for abstinence education.
