I hadn’t planned to comment upon Obama’s speech at Notre Dame. I had figured he wouldn’t touch abortion with a 10′ pole and was proved wrong, but other than that, there wasn’t a whole lot that was interesting. For whatever reason people seem surprised that he didn’t say he was conforming his views on life to Evangelium Vitae and then managed to be outraged because he didn’t. His concession that conscience rights of health care worker were important didn’t seem to make a difference and was deemed wholly insufficient by those that had no intention of being contented.
