Obama skirts questions on Notre Dame, FOCA at 100 Days press conference
Colleen Raezler from NewsBusters.org talked about this on her blogtoday. I think it solidifies the message to the pro-life community that Obama has no intention of slowing down his pro-abortion agenda.
CNN Reporter Ed Henry asked this question to President Barack Obama at last night’s press conference:
Henry: Mr. President. In a couple of weeks, you're going to be giving the commencement at Notre Dame. And, as you know, this has caused a lot of controversy among Catholics who are opposed to your position on abortion.
As a candidate, you vowed that one of the very things you wanted to do was sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which, as you know, would eliminate federal, state and local restrictions on abortion. And at one point in the campaign when asked about abortion and life, you said that it was above - quote, above my pay grade.
Now that you've been president for 100 days, obviously, your pay grade is a little higher than when you were a senator.
Do you still hope that Congress quickly sends you the Freedom of Choice Act so you can sign it?
Watch this, and see if you can pick out a straight answer to Henry’s question.
