    These were probably republican plants anyway. Just wanting to see what he was tweeting about so they can blast him in real time. No great loss. Losing republicans is never a great loss.

    Pro-life Democrats and some pro-life Republicans as well are looking for the Obama administration to offer reassurances with regard to conscience clauses protecting health care workers who conscientiously oppose abortion and some signs that it is prepared to take seriously the goal of making abortion rare as well as safe and legal.
