On campus, Obama entered the arena to thunderous applause and a standing ovation from many in the crowd of 12,000. But as the president began his commencement address, at least three protesters interrupted it. One yelled, “Stop killing our children.”
The graduates responded by chanting “Yes we can”, the slogan that became synonymous with Obama’s presidential campaign. Obama seemed unfazed, saying Americans must be able to deal with things that make them “uncomfortable.”
The president ceded no ground on abortion. But he said those on each side of the debate “can still agree that this is a heart-wrenching decision for any woman to make, with both moral and spiritual dimensions.
“So let’s work together to reduce the number of women seeking abortions by reducing unintended pregnancies, and making adoption more available, and providing care and support for women who do carry their child to term.”
The religious folks must come to terms with protecting embryo’s that become children. They must protect the child that is born and make sure he or she can grow to become a viable member of our society as their job isn’t finished when the child is born. They can not just scream and holler about protecting the embryo, they must continue to protect the human being. That is the biggest hypocrisy to me with regard to the anti-choice crowd.
