Slate's Melinda Henneberger writes today about the hysterical rantings coming from the Catholic Church hierarchy in regards to reproductive choice and Barack Obama. According to those who consider themselves but once removed from direct enlightenment by God himself, Obama is shepherding in a new Gethsemane by trying to reduce the reasons women might choose to have abortions. They're also steaming over his support of the Freedom of Choice Act, which supporters claim merely codifies Roe v. Wade and opponents claim would invalidate all the restrictions they've managed to put on abortions. God knows, after all, there's no good reason for a medical provider to provide you with medical information about your body just because you want it. [Slate]
