Lovely press release.

Quote:
On the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, we are reminded that this decision not only protects women’s health and reproductive freedom, but stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters. I remain committed to protecting a woman’s right to choose.

While this is a sensitive and often divisive issue, no matter what our views, we are united in our determination to prevent unintended pregnancies, reduce the need for abortion, and support women and families in the choices they make. To accomplish these goals, we must work to find common ground to expand access to affordable contraception, accurate health information, and preventative services.

On this anniversary, we must also recommit ourselves more broadly to ensuring that our daughters have the same rights and opportunities as our sons: the chance to attain a world-class education; to have fulfilling careers in any industry; to be treated fairly and paid equally for their work; and to have no limits on their dreams. That is what I want for women everywhere.

Timothy F. Geithne, Obama's Treasury secretary nominee is one of Obama's few poor selections.
He cut Bill Richardson, when that didn't work out.
I am thinking it might have been better to find another Treasury pick. This guy will be confirmed, but he will have a bumpy ride.

And it goes on:

President Obama signed an executive order Friday striking down a rule that prohibits U.S. money from funding international family that promote abortion or provide counseling or referrals about abortion services.

That's great, but I'll be more excited if/when Obama reverses Bush's ban on federal funding of embryonic stem cell research. He can't claim to want to give science its rightful place back and then not reverse the ban on funding for embryonic stem cell research, imo.

I just heard on NBC Nightly News a couple hours ago that he may reverse the stem cell order as early as next week. I really hope he does.
