Obama at Notre Dame as Most Americans Turn Against His Devisive Issue

The most pro-abortion president ever, Barack Obama, will be at the University of Notre dame this weekend to get an “hornorary degree.”

And for the first time in years, most Americans are pro-life, not abortion….

From Gallup

A new Gallup Poll, conducted May 7-10, finds 51% of Americans calling themselves “pro-life” on the issue of abortion and 42% “pro-choice.” This is the first time a majority of U.S. adults have identified themselves as pro-life since Gallup began asking this question in 1995.

The University of Notre Dame says its invitation doesn't mean the university agrees with all of Obama's positions.

May 15 (Bloomberg) — President Barack Obama has largely sidestepped social controversies such as abortion and gay rights. That’s about to change.

The fight will heat up this weekend when Obama delivers the commencement address at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. His appearance at the Catholic institution has led to public criticism from 74 bishops and protests by anti- abortion activists. A fiercer battle may soon erupt over his likely selection of a pro-choice nominee to succeed Supreme Court Justice David Souter when he retires in June.

Such disputes, which raged during the 16 years of Obama’s two predecessors, had been marginalized by the economic crisis and defused by the new president’s popularity and the public’s disaffection with Republicans who had made them a mainstay of their electoral pitches.

“These issues have been demoted by the economy,” said Andrew Kohut, director of the Pew Research Center in Washington. “But they will come back.”

David Axelrod, a White House strategist, acknowledges these battles are certain to reignite, though he predicted they may be less intense because of Obama’s desire for compromise.

“There are always going to be polarities in these fights,” Axelrod said. “But if you begin from a perspective of goodwill toward everyone, and the assumption that most Americans have very sincere views, you can reduce that conflict.”
