In questo articolo si annota come la posizione di Obama sul problema aborto sia implicitamente più Pro Life che Pro Choice, proprio perchè favorevole alla riduzione degli aborti. Non si chiede di ridurre un fenomeno se non lo si giudica negativamente. E’ questa la vera novità nel dibattito USA sul fenomeno. Ed il fatto che sia giunto a questo articolo tramite il National Catholic Register, ovvero l’alter ego conservatore del National Catholic Reporter, la dice lunga su come questo giudizio possa cambiare molto nel dibattito.GR_PR_GodandCountry594

This was expected but, the White House did not send out emissaries to argue that the change was mostly about family planning services, and that it is precisely the absence of such services that has resulted in the high abortion rates in many developing countries, including Catholic countries.

The decision to overturn the “conscience regulations” for Catholic health care workers was also mishandled. The Obama administration said that the regulations, which the Bush administration enacted in its final months in office, were overbroad and vague. Conservatives claimed that without the regulations Catholics would be coerced into performing abortions, something that is actually prohibited by federal law already. (altro…)
