Pro Choice or Pro Abortion?

Q. When is pro choice not pro choice? 

A.When it comes to the right of individuals not to perform medical procedures that go against their morals.

President Obama is considering overturning a regulation that was introduced during the Bush administration regarding the right of medical personnel to refuse to perform certain medical procedures (including abortion)  for personal ethical reasons.  This is good news to the people who support abortion, and bad news to their opponents.

I thought that a big part of the argument in favor of abortion was over a person’s right to choose?  What has happened to the right of medical personnel to refuse to participate in acts that violate their moral conscience?  Since when does the right for an individual to choose to have an abortion mean that someone else has to violate their personal choice to not perform abortions?  

That is inconsistant and it is wrong.  I sincerely hope that President Obama will be as considerate of the choice of people who want nothing to do with abortions as he is with the choice of those who want an abortion.

Is he pro choice?  Or is he just pro abortion?

I guess we will see.

    I was thinking some more about this and here’s my take on it. President Obama should be required to observe the abortion process, certainly before he takes away a doctors or nurses choice. As for the partial birth abortion that is also on his table, I am betting he has never witnessed that either. I haven’t personally been there either, but the pictures are graphic enough for me.

    Gloria, that is a good suggestion. I hope that he does not change the ruling. I really believe that people should have the right to not perform procedures that they consider morally objectable.

    I’m starting to wonder about what one might call “population control”.
