The White House’s website was updated immediately after President Obama took office yesterday. Under the agenda section of the site, one finds this statment :

Supports a Woman’s Right to Choose: President 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 in his Adminstration. He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision in that case.

No surprise there, I guess. Let’s hope the President will see at the March for Life tomorrow how many people disagree with him on this “divisive issue.”
