CNNPolitics reports that Obama is considering using the Presidential power of executive order to overturn what is commonly known as the "global gag rule," a policy that prohibits the United States from giving money to international family planning groups that offer, promote or refer patients to abortion providers and/or abortion counseling.

Reinstating the gag rule was George W. Bush's first executive order as President in 2001, 2 days after he was sworn in and on the anniversary of Roe V. Wade.

January 22, 2009 will be the 36th anniversary of Roe V. Wade, and what better way to honor women's reproductive rights in the United States than by allowing funding for women's reproductive health and rights throughout the world?

Let's hope President Obama (that feels so GREAT to write!!) follows through with this and lives up to his reputation of being feminist friendly. It would be a fabulous way to begin his presidency.

I think Obama will be a great president. He really seems like a kind, peaceful dude, who's not out to rule everyone's life.
