President Obama Sends Video Message of Support to NARAL Dinner

Politico: President Obama sends support to abortion rights group, by Kathryn Smith: Image1

Days after proposing a compromise on his contraceptive coverage policy, President Barack Obama sent a strong video message of support for women's right to make their own reproductive choices at a NARAL Pro-Choice America annual dinner Tuesday night.

"Tonight we celebrate the historic Roe v. Wade decision handed down 40 years ago, but we also gather to recommit ourselves to the decision's guiding principle: that women should be able to make their own choices about their bodies and their health care," the president said in a video at an anniversary celebration that also welcomed NARAL's new president, Ilyse Hogue. . . .
