Candidate Review - Abortion - Barack Obama

Barack Obama has some slick people working on his website. It's got a very clean design. As near as I can tell he doesn't have a presence in Second Life.

The Website does have a blog which looks regularly updated - very regularly. It also has a section on People, which highlights supporters of Obama. Very smart idea. There is an Obama Store where you can get a Windbreaker? Very practical for this time of year.

Obama's position on Abortion is found on his people page for Women. If you go there you can click on Where Barack stands and pull up his position on what his campaign considers Women's issues, including Supporting Research into Woman's health, Fighting Cancer and so on.

And about half way down, one finds this straightforward statement.
Barack Obama understands that abortion is a divisive issue, and respects those who disagree with him. However, he has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women’s rights under Roe v. Wade a priority as President. He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court's decision in that case.
So there you go. Pretty clear.
