What We Know: President Obama

The "What We Know" series attempts to explain each of the 2012 Presidential Candidates' views on abortion. We'll start with the incumbent, President Barack Obama.

The Simple Answer: A quote from the President, found here: "There is a moral implication to these issues [the issues of abortion], but that the women involved are in the best position to make that determination."

Behind The Answer: Three long list articles on Obama's view can be found here, here, and here. Some key points from those articles: In 2005, 2006, and 2007, Obama received NARAL(A major pro-choice group) 's highest rating, a 100%, in terms of pro-choice voting. In March 2009, President Obama restarted government funding for embryo stem cell research and ended government funding for adult stem cell research. President Obama is very pro-choice, and hesupports abortion whole-heartedly.
