"We regret that a pro-choice president of a pro-choice nation was forced to sign an Executive Order that further codifies the proposed anti-choice language in the health-care reform bill, originally proposed by Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska," said Cecile Richards, president of PPFA (the Planned Parenthood Federation of America). She also said her group is "grateful" that the executive order does not "include the complete and total ban on private health insurance coverage for abortion that Congressman Bart Stupak had insisted upon."OK, so she's glad that we didn't get screwed as badly as we could have? We should continue to push against those who would hold us down. Under water. Until we stop breathing. Yeah, we should push against those people as hard as we can.
