Maybe he’s coming around. President Obama Friday emphatically declared:
“…no politician should get to decide what’s best for you. The only person who should get to make decisions about your health is you.”
This would bring great hope to the millions already feeling the presence of politicians in that little room where the patient sits on paper, arrayed in a backless gown.
But context is everything. The president made that remark before an adoring crowd at a Planned Parenthood event, as he assured them the federal funding flow to the nation’s leading abortion retailer would never dry up.
Apparently, this politician won’t make decisions about your health, so long as the treatment for your condition might involve an abortion.
