The Start of the Obama Presidency...

Reading in the papers the last few days, I must say I was very happy with many of the new President's first moves - especially in relation to Gaza and the middle east.

But the other side of the coin didn't take long in surfacing either.

David, I too was dismayed by the lifting of the abortion ban - the speed with which he acted reveals those to whom he owed election debts.

Also, we need to realise that the reasons the pro-life civil rights movement has been not very successful are that Capitalism requires the maximum number of people in the labour market, to ensure that wages are kept as low as possible. This means that women must be encouraged to remain in the labour market as long as possible. Babies have an annoying tendency to get in the way of that and so must be able to be disposed of should there be even the slightest doubt of a woman's wishing be pregnant. Thus, all the moneyed interests including and *especially* the mainstream media are tied up in promoting abortion. Hence, the failure of pro-lifers to change things significantly has nothing to do with our "not caring about the baby once its born" (which is a load of tosh) etc. It has everything to do with money and power, neither of which we have, speaking in worldly terms.
