Democrat rivals defend the right for abortion

The two Democratic rivals for their party’s presidential nomination have both affirmed their support for abortion rights.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were speaking at a forum on faith and politics in Pennsylvania, where the next key primary vote is to be held. Both candidates professed their Christian faith as they were questioned on a range of issues.

Republican candidate John McCain declined to attend the forum. Senator Obama leads Senator Clinton in terms of delegates won in the primaries so far. He is hoping to seal his lead with a victory in Pennsylvania ahead of the party’s nominating convention in August.

What the ones against abortion miss is that if somebody wants to do it will do it under any circumstances even if that costs them their own lives, isn’t it better to be protected in a healthy environment with experts around? This is the simplest argument!

World Bank …food cost alarm

The rapid rise in food prices could push 100 million people in poor countries deeper into poverty, World Bank head, Robert Zoellick, has said.

His warning follows that from the leader of the International Monetary Fund, who said hundreds of thousands of people were at risk of starvation. Mr. Zoellick proposed an action plan to boost long-run agricultural production.

There have been food riots recently in a number of countries, including Haiti, the Philippines and Egypt. “Based on a rough analysis, we estimate that a doubling of food prices over the last three years could potentially push 100 million people in low-income countries deeper into poverty,” Mr. Zoellick said.

His proposal for a “new deal” to tackle the international food crisis was endorsed by the World Bank’s steering committee of finance and development ministers at a meeting in Washington.

This is where they lead us to riot for a plate of rice …meat is out of question, too expensive!
