President Obama moved swiftly yesterday to begin rolling back eight years of his predecessor's policies, ordering tough new ethics rules and preparing to issue an order closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which has been at the center of the debate over the treatment of U.S. prisoners in the battle against terrorism.

Obama has some serious damage control to do. That's all I am saying... for now.

Today he signed an executive order restoring funds for reproductive aid to clinics overseas. Now women in 3rd world countries will be able to get the help they need on women's health issues. It was a sin that the Bush and Reagan administrations had stopped all aid if these clinics even mentioned the word abortion. How mean.

Love your choice of words. ;-)

As a woman, a supporter of human rights and a proud employee of a family planning clinic, this news is very welcome.
