New president seeks "middle ground" re: abortion

President Barack Obama renewed his commitment to abortions rights on Thursday, saying the nation needs to find common ground in the contentious abortion debate so "our daughters have the same rights and opportunities as our sons."

Uh...couple o' points, Mr. Prez:

1.) If you're talking about "alive sons," i.e., the sons who are fathers of unborn babies? They generally have no rights. You've got it backward, sir. Fathers of unborn babies don't have much of a say in whether their children live. Like it or not, it's the mom's call. 'Scuse me, "choice." No, sorry, "right." However you want to spin it.

2.) If you're talking about "unborn sons," well...from what I'm hearing from you, many sons and daughters—around 50 million and counting—don't legally deserve the most basic right: to live.
