And just like that, the election is over. We will have our first black president ever in January when Barack Obama is sworn in. On the history part, I'm very excited. It's great to see that our country has now advanced to the point that it can elect a black candidate to the Oval Office. Only hardlined racists wouldn't be excited by all this.
As prolifer, though, I also dread what sorts of anti-prolife changes Obama will bring. He's already said that the first thing he'll do in office is sign the Freedom of Choice Act, which will wipe away all the progress that prolifers have made since Roe vs. Wade. He'll also be in the position to appoint prochoice Supreme Court justices when some of the current ones retire. That will entrench the changes he'll make with FOCA. Let's just say that those who are already born or are about to be born are fortunate to have done so before he's sworn in.
So Barack Obama's election is a bittersweet experience for me. I hope he proves me wrong. I dread what will happen to the unborn otherwise.
