At the highly publicized Notre Dame speech this weekend, Obama said the following.

"That’s when we begin to say, “Maybe we won’t agree on abortion, but we can still agree that this is a heart-wrenching decision for any woman to make, with both moral and spiritual dimensions."

HUH? Abortion is heart-wrenching in both moral and spiritual dimensions?

How can that be? Abortions are legal and over a million are performed every year in this country. The left has consistently and fiercely championed the right to abortions as an almost 'natural' event. It's probably more difficult for a woman/girl to buy certain prescription drugs than it is to get an abortion. So how can something legal and 'natural' be a moral and spiritual dilemma?

I'm confused.

Obama also said:

"So let’s work together to reduce the number of women seeking abortions by reducing unintended pregnancies, and making adoption more available, and providing care and support for women who do carry their child to term"

Huh? He wants women to stop doing something that his party clamors for, runs campaigns on, and champions at every turn? Abortions are legal. Why is he advocating the reduction of a legal activity?

I'm confused.
