Obama's "dream" and the abortion nightmare

Barack Obama won the presidency in large part through promises to unify America and close painful gaps in our society.

Unfortunately, he missed an important chance to advance that process on the recent 41st anniversary of the Roe Vs. Wade decision on abortion.

The president could have acknowledged the thousands of sincere, idealistic people who braved the cold in the annual March for Life, and bore witness to the 56 million babies legally "terminated" since 1973.

Why not say he shared their goal of reducing the rate of abortion as much as possible?

Instead, he issued a sloppy, tone-deaf statement praising "the right to reproductive freedomů because this is a country where everyone deserves the same freedom and opportunities to fulfill their dreams."

Is getting an abortion really the sort of dream that Americans yearn to fulfill?
