Obama diz ao Papa Bento XVI que quer reduzir abortos nos EUA

CIDADE DO VATICANO - O presidente dos EUA, Barack Obama, prometeu ao Papa Bento XVI, nesta sexta-feira, que fará o possível para reduzir o número de abortos no país, informou o Vaticano.

Só pode ser piada:

But Obama's record on abortion is extreme. He opposed the ban on partial-birth abortion -- a practice a fellow Democrat, the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan, once called "too close to infanticide." Obama strongly criticized the Supreme Court decision upholding the partial-birth ban. In the Illinois state Senate, he opposed a bill similar to the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act, which prevents the killing of infants mistakenly left alive by abortion. And now Obama has oddly claimed that he would not want his daughters to be "punished with a baby" because of a crisis pregnancy -- hardly a welcoming attitude toward new life.
