Stop Hating: Here's Why Obama Is a Progressive
November 24, 2008
Here are some progressive things that Barack Obama has promised to do. Ever hear of the Freedom of Choice Act?
The bill is described by NARAL Pro-Choice America president Nancy Keenan as a bill to "codify Roe v. Wade" which would "repeal the Bush-backed Federal Abortion Ban," referring to the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act, "and other federal restrictions," . Similarly, opponents of the bill assert that it would, if passed, invalidate every restriction on an abortion before the stage of viability, even those previously found consistent with Roe v. Wade by the United States Supreme Court, such as parental notification laws, waiting periods, requirements of full disclosure of the physical and emotional risks inherent in abortion, and the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act.
What has Obama said about this bill?
