Comment 1 by irate_atheist Oh dear. Seems like mama & Papa Obama didn't teach their son enough about critical thinking and avoiding appeals to emotion, tradition etc

Really? Apart from the fact it's common knowledge, it is even stated above

My father was almost entirely absent from my childhood, having been divorced from my mother when I was 2 years old;

He is right though in the article when he says that a lot of religious think women take abortion lightly, as some for of after the fact birth control, which is not the case, and ultimately,

a ban on abortion would force women to seek unsafe abortions,

This is true no matter how you feel on the subject.

The real question here is why an article dated Monday, Oct. 16, 2006 is being posted now. Nothing to do with a re-election bid, I'm sure.
