President Obama has been in the news repeatedly over the last week for his attacks on life. He has signed a bill that will fund embryonic stem cell research, to the delight of some medical researchers.

Another major Obama initiative is to rescind the Provider Conscience Clause, a regulation signed by President Bush which gave federal protections to individuals and hospitals who refused to participate in abortions on moral grounds. Obama is taking comments on this decision before taking action-so be sure to make your voice heard. The official email address for sending comments is: firstname.lastname@example.org
