Just a reminder that today is the day that Concerned Women for America, the Family Research Council, and other right-wing groups head to the White House for a meeting with Joshua DuBois, head of the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
We have already written several posts about this and we’ll undoubtedly have more once the meeting is over, but the scheduled meeting is already getting coverage in right-wing media outlets like CNS News and OneNewsNow and CBN, all of which interviewed CWA’s Wendy Wright who is vowing that she will not be peddling “politically correct” message and intends to make her case that the best way to reduce abortion is through regulation and restriction clearly and forcefully … all while anticipating that this meeting will merely be the first of many:
The reason for the meeting is to find ways to actually reduce the number of abortions in the United States.
Wright says groups like the CWA, the Family Research Council and other pro-life groups that will be at the meeting have long years of experience at doing just that, and can show the White House how to find common ground in accomplishing that goal.
“We can find common ground by looking at what do most Americans want,” Wright explained. “And polling data shows that things like parental notification, informed consent, no government funding of elective abortions get 60, 70, 80 percent approval by Americans. That should be something we can agree would be common ground. Let’s do what the American people want.”
