Obama to rescind Bush's anti-choice rule  

I love having a pro-choice president. Every day feels like Christmas.

Word on the street is that Obama wants to rescind the horrible anti-choice parting gift Bush left us with in his final days. His poorly-drafted and hasty legislation was designed to protect doctors and nurses who refuse to perform abortions or mention abortion as an option to patients on moral grounds by taking away a clinic's right to fire them. The really scary part is that this law is so broad and vague that it could be used to also protect pharmacists who refuse to sell birth control pills. Then of course, I'm inclined to ask my favorite question: will Scientologist pharmacists then be allowed to refuse to sell antidepressants?

I know we have the right to exercise our own religion, but American citizens also have a right to access proper medical care. If your job requires you to compromise your morals, find another one.

What next?
