Obama acts as though we no longer have a Constitution

The newly re-elected Obama administration should promote contraception as a human right, domestically and throughout the world, a veteran House member said Wednesday as a new report on global family-planning was released.
At a House hearing punctuated by the wails of a Chinese woman mourning a baby that was forcibly aborted 17 years ago, lawmakers said there were signs that increased domestic and international pressure on Chinese officials to end the country's one-child policy was beginning to have an effect.
Every 2.4 seconds, a woman in China undergoes a forced abortion because of the communist nation's one-child policy.
Moreover, the UNFPA report explicitly calls for family-planning services for women who are young and single, but it doesn't address China's law forbidding births to single women and its efforts to perform abortions on women who break that law, said Ms. Littlejohn.
But Reggie Littlejohn, whose Women's Rights Without Frontiers opposes China's one-child birth policy, said the UNFPA report's title, "By Choice, Not By Chance," was ironic.
