Media buzz is stirring over president-elect Obama’s pending
announcement of more Cabinet members. But it hasn’t settled down yet
since his pick the other day of a pro-abortion activist for
communications director.

He’s communicating, alright.

So much for the idea that President-elect Barack Obama is a closet pro-lifer.

This notion is being comprehensively disproved by the continuing
string of appointments of people with strongly pro-abortion views to
Obama’s cabinet and White House staff.

The most compelling evidence to date is the choice of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) as Obama’s Secretary of State and the selection of Ellen Moran, executive director of EMILY’s List, as his White House communications director.

In fact…

The appointment of Moran is even stronger evidence of
Obama’s determination to advance the abortion lobby’s agenda. EMILY’s
list exists specifically for the purpose of funding the election
campaigns of pro-abortion politicians in order to secure political
objectives such as passage of the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) and the
appointment of pro-abortion judges to the Supreme Court — both of which
Obama has promised to advance.

Okay. This is not change that embodies hope, and it’s further proof
that those campaign slogans were nothing but. Unless we can hope that
they all have a change of heart…
