It must be true that his own mother, if permitted at the time, may have very well had an abortion. She was single, her boyfriend was black and the year was I guess in the early 60s. According to Obama, his own life should have ended in abortion. I’m not saying it should have, I’m just saying it could have according his own beliefs.
But using back alley abortions as an excuse for legalizing it doesn't wash either. That is a "choice", too, to have one of those. If they're so pro choice, why do they care what a woman does (other than vote for them)?
That is new to me that his mother may have had one, probably conjecture. It's possible. It got me wondering about a lot of things I probably didn't know about that happened in the 20's and 30's even before I was born.
