Obama v. Planned Parenthood

Politico.com has an update on the extreme displeasure among pro-choice groups over the fact that President Obama meant what he said when he refused to allow the health care overhaul to become a vehicle for expanding abortion coverage. And, the article is succinct: the pro-choice groups “lost” the battle during the health care fight. Money quote: “For abortion rights advocates, the HHS episode [regarding high risk pools] was both a reminder of the health reform battle they lost and a warning about the risks ahead: Having a president on their side doesn’t mean they can sit back and expect success.” Pro-life groups need to stop ranting about Obama and have a cigar - they won, even if theu can't bring themselves to admit it.
