Obama's Inner Muslim veils Hillary on Mideast tour and appoints anti choice person to HSS

On the day hundreds attended services for Dr Tiller, murdered by the right to life movement and their media allies, I found out Obama appointed an anti choice Catholic to DHSS who vows to cut women's access to abortion clinics. ARE WE STILL HEARING THE RATIONALIZATIONS FROM SO CALLED FEMINISTS ABOUT OBAMA NOT ASKING SOTOMAYOR THE CATHOLIC HER VIEWS ON ABORTION AND THE REASONING IN ROE ?


Did not ask Sotomayer because he does not want an expansion of women's rights. Did not ask because he is a sexist.

Hillary wore a head covering on his Mideast tour because she is an opportunist. BO gave a speech about how OK it is to cover your face head and body if you WANT to and Hillary obligingly put on the slave clothes to make his point. Bo also said the thing Muslims should do for women is education. He did not mention the honor killings, stoning, beatings and slave status under law. He doesn't seem to know much or care much about female slavery or even the working class rights as compared to his Wall Street friends. Oh well, those working hicks are just afraid of floods of illegal immigrants taking their jobs and are clinging to guns.

Get over it free women. We are on our own. Feminist groups better act like they have a commitment to women, not the self aggrandizing Democrat Party or their 10 remaining members will also be gone. Hillary - never again.

This is from Alegre's corner. Alegre will defend Hillary until her death seeming regardless of anything Hillary does to betray women --- no women's rights work in the state dept - covering her head in the land of the patriarchs --kissing BO's rear... but Alegre has a good blog and you should read her posts.

Anti-Choice Nominee for HHS Post

Bad idea - even worse timing. The president is looking to reduce the need for abortion, but his anti-choice nominee has vowed to reduce ACCESS to abortions.

Disturbing doesn't begin to describe this latest move from the White House - especially given the elevated role of this office now that we have a Democrat in the Oval Office.

One would think that - given his campaign rhetoric - he would do his best to remove barriers to women in accessing whatever legal health care services we care to seek out.

From Sarah Posner of the American Prospect...
ABORTION FOE TO LEAD HHS FAITH-BASED OFFICE President Obama has appointed Alexia Kelley, executive director of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good (CACG), to head the Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at the Department of Health and Human Services. ... Kelley has made clear that she seeks instead to reduce access to abortion.

"As Catholics for Choice points out in its press release criticizing the pick, "the Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for providing and expanding access to key sexual and reproductive health services. As such, we need those working in HHS to rely on evidence-based methods to reduce the need for abortion. We need them to believe in men's and women's capacity to make moral decisions about their own lives. Unfortunately, as seen from her work at CACG, Ms. Kelley does not fit the bill."

That is an extremely disturbing development, especially coming this week in the wake of George Tiller's assassination.

Under George W. Bush, the faith-based centers didn't play a policy role. But Obama has expanded the faith-based project to include a policy side, and one of its chief goals is to reduce the need for abortion.

I have opposed this, because reproductive health is a public health, not a religious issue. Also problematic: It is counterproductive for Obama to appoint someone who disagrees with the administration's stance.

Obama finds himself now in the difficult position of having elevated the importance of religion to making policy, and having appointed a religious figure whose opinions on policy conflict with his.

Kelley and CACG have made clear they are committed to Catholic doctrine on abortion and birth control. CACG has supported the Pregnant Women's Support Act, aimed at stigmatizing abortion and making it less accessible.
I have a problem with this on so many levels I don't know where to start...

First: elevating a religious office to one involved in making healthcare policy - when Bush wouldn't even do that? Second: appointing someone who's diametrically opposed to your stated goals? Third: an anti-choice activist???!!??! Fourth: now? Just days after the cold blooded murder of Dr. George Tiller, who was one of the few doctors still willing to perform late-term abortions (a very legal procedure under certain circumstances)????

If the White House wanted to rub salt in the wounds of everyone who was shocked and angered by Dr. Tiller's assassination, he's just managed to do it with this nomination. File this one under what was he THINKING?

I know what he was thinking ..............

The White House, in talking points distributed Tuesday to senators, casts Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as a model of judicial restraint who strictly adheres to precedent and is willing to take on abortion rights supporters and side with conservative judges.
Public Health Care is the New Cool

The White House, in talking points distributed Tuesday to senators, casts Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor as a model of judicial restraint who strictly adheres to precedent and is willing to take on abortion rights supporters and side with conservative judges.
The talking points, detailed in a memo obtained by POLITICO, are an attempt to combat conservative criticism of Sotomayor, a federal appellate judge, as a judicial activist who injects her personal feelings into court decisions that further her liberal agenda.
The memo — titled “SONIA SOTOMAYOR: A NONIDEOLOGICAL AND RESTRAINED JUDGE” — cites a 1998 New York Times story in which a conservative lawyer is quoted calling Sotomayor “exactly what conservatives want: a nonactivist judge who does not apply her own views but is bound by the law.”Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0609/23272.html#ixzz0Hf5lzbUm&C
