Obama respects right of women to choose

info@islandpacket.comJanuary 24, 2013 

I read with interest the various letters about the gun control debate, and I respect the differences of opinion. But a letter Monday stated a position that I feel obligated to clarify.

The writer stated that President Barack Obama "... continues to support abortion on demand, which kills numerous defenseless babies in the United States every day."

Obama does not support "abortion on demand"; he supports a woman's right to choose what to do with her own body.
