38 years ago…

Statement by the President on the 38th anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision:

“Today marks the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, and affirms a fundamental principle: that government should not intrude on private family matters. I am committed to protecting this constitutional right. I also remain committed to policies, initiatives, and programs that help prevent unintended pregnancies, support pregnant women and mothers, encourage healthy relationships, and promote adoption. And on this anniversary, I hope that we will recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights, the same freedoms, and the same opportunities as our sons to fulfill their dreams.”

Issa is the Republican who called President Obama’s administration “one of the most corrupt ever” … but has an interesting past of his own (read here – there’s also a lengthy New Yorker profile of Issa here)

Thank you Chi 😉
