An Obama presidency would spare us this idiocy

(via) Where is the Bush administration getting these ideas? from the CBCP?

The Bush Administration has ignited a furor with a proposed definition of pregnancy that has the effect of classifying some of the most widely used methods of contraception as abortion. A draft regulation, still being revised and debated, treats most birth-control pills and intrauterine devices as abortion because they can work by preventing fertilized eggs from implanting in the uterus. The regulation considers that destroying "the life of a human being."

You may be right: the cbcp's reach is global.

Sad that McCain refused to take a stand. I guess it shows that he is going for the conservative vote. What did he say about Obama willing to lose a war in order to win an election?
