I recall that when then-candidate Obama, while in a debate with Sen. McCain, was asked by Rick Warren at what point a baby gets “human rights,” Obama famously said: “… whether you’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a scientific perspective, answering that question with specificity … is above my pay grade.” So he won't actually take part in the debate, but he'll happily go to Notre Dame and receive the honorary law degree, etc.
It's worth noting that the MSNBC.com piece refers to Glendon as being "conservative," as an "abortion foe," and as being "staunchly anti-abortion." All of that is true, of course, but the piece never identifies Pres. Obama as being an abortion supporter, or as "pro-abortion." (Yes, I know: he insists that no one is pro-abortion.) Which gives the impression that it is Glendon who has taken the extreme position, even though she is the one opposed to the killing of unborn innocents.
