Yet Another Obama Flip Flop, Now On Abortion

Obama couldn’t end the day with just one flip flop, he had to hit a double whammy. I guess the Independence Day weekend, when most of his liberal supporters are “drinking liberally” would be the best time to do this kind of thing. Add another flip flop to the ever-growing list. This time its on abortion.
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama says “mental distress” should not qualify as a health exception for late term-abortions, a key distinction not embraced by many supporters of abortion rights.

In an interview this week with “Relevant,” a Christian magazine, Obama said prohibitions on late-term abortions must contain “a strict, well defined exception for the health of the mother.” Obama then added: “Now, I don’t think that ‘mental distress’ qualifies as the health of the mother. I think it has to be a serious physical issue that arises in pregnancy, where there are real, significant problems to the mother carrying that child to term.”

Last year, after the Supreme Court upheld a federal ban on late-term abortions, Obama said he “strongly disagreed” with the ruling because it “dramatically departs from previous precedents safeguarding the health of pregnant women.”

Last year Obama said he would trust women to make the right decision on partial birth abortion. This new position on abortion by Barack goes against his 100% NARAL rating in 2005, 2006, and 2007. Of course the MSM will not report any of these details to you.
