Obama on Abortion

Obama DOES support Medicaid-funded abortions.

He supports Roe v. Wade, and has said publically that he will seek to pass the Freedom of Choice Act.

He has stated that partial birth abortion is a decision that the individual woman must make for herself.

Obama voted in opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

He supports federal funding for Therapeutic cloning (SCNT) but not for reproductive cloning.

He would NOT support President Bush’s ban on the use of federal funds for research on human embryonic stem cell lines created after August 2001.
