Obama Does a Backflip on Mental Health Abortions

I’m getting a little woozy over here; the guy’s flipping like flapjacks this week. Obama has clarified his earlier statement on abortion to a Christian magazine. When he said:

“Now, I don’t think that ‘mental distress’ qualifies as the health of the mother. I think it has to be a serious physical issue that arises in pregnancy, where there are real, significant problems to the mother carrying that child to term.”

he actually meant:

“My only point is that in an area like partial-birth abortion having a mental, having a health exception can be defined rigorously. It can be defined through physical health, It can be defined by serious clinical mental-health diseases.”

Clear?
