Oh, so fitting, all things considered. Turn up your speakers quite a bit to hear it because the sound on the video is low.
CNS has the story:
During Sunday’s speech at Notre Dame, Obama referred to a doctor who voted for him in the 2004 Democratic Senate primary in Illinois and who “described himself as Christian who was strongly pro-life.” The doctor objected to language on Obama’s Senate campaign Web site that said Obama would battle “right-wing ideologues who want to take away a woman’s right to choose.”
Obama explained that the doctor “had assumed I was a reasonable person…but if I truly believed that every pro-life individual was simply an ideologue who wanted to inflict suffering on women, then I was not very reasonable.”
The doctor sent Obama a letter where, according to the president, he stated, “I do not ask at this point that you oppose abortion, only that you speak about this issue in fair-minded words.”
As Obama repeated the term “fair-minded words,” the cry of a baby—that had been heard intermittently before that as Obama spoke about the issue–broke out clearly and could be heard on national television broadcasts.
The arena where the president spoke is the Joyce Center, which has a capacity of 11,418, and is where Notre Dame’s basketball team plays its home games. It appeared to be filled to capacity for the graduation ceremony.
As there continued to be outbursts of the baby’s cry audible on television broadcasts, Obama indicated that he had removed from his Web site the entry that the doctor did not like, but that he did not change his pro-abortion position.
