It was a busy day for the Obama Camp– First he “refined” his position on Iraq, then he “refined” his position back, then later he “refined” his position on abortion.
WHO IS THIS GUY?
Drudge and My Way News reported:
Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama says “mental distress” should not qualify as a health exception for late term-abortions, a key distinction not embraced by many supporters of abortion rights.
In an interview this week with “Relevant,” a Christian magazine, Obama said prohibitions on late-term abortions must contain “a strict, well defined exception for the health of the mother.”
Obama then added: “Now, I don’t think that ‘mental distress’ qualifies as the health of the mother. I think it has to be a serious physical issue that arises in pregnancy, where there are real, significant problems to the mother carrying that child to term.”
Last year, after the Supreme Court upheld a federal ban on late-term abortions, Obama said he “strongly disagreed” with the ruling because it “dramatically departs form previous precedents safeguarding the health of pregnant women.”

This “refined” position goes against his 100% rating from NARAL in 2005, 2006 and 2007.
Last year Obama said he would trust women to make the right decision on partial birth abortion.
That was when Obama trusted women, before he didn’t trust them.
Whew!… This guy is getting hard to keep up with.
