The Obama presidency has two great missions: fixing the economy, and preventing Iran from gaining nuclear weapons.
You can only end a negotiation for peace if you begin it.

I think women have the right to consult their own wishes, needs, and capacities and produce only loved, wanted children they can care for – or even no children at all. I think we would all be better off as a society if we respected women’s ability to make these decisions for themselves and concentrated on caring well for the born.
