Barack's Notre Dame Commencement Speech was heavy on mutual tolerance and lacking on requirements to cease abortion homicide. Will it help him get the support and votes from the nominally christian who want all religious to coexist peacefully?
Consider the following dialogue though between a formerly-pregnant woman who got an abortion and the guy who got her pregnant:
WOMAN: I chose the pro-choice choice to abort my baby for reproductive freedom and birth control for the medical health of my own and no one else's body.
MAN: He or she (not "it") would have been our son or our daughter, not merely your body, which would-have-been offspring you were appointed by the Creator to be a caretaker and not owner of, but you shirked your responsibility to bear who would have been OUR son or daughter.
You chose the wrong choice, you selfish and arrogantly-despicable twit!
There was nothing "reproductive" about the murder you committed and NOT "performed" against a human person [as defined by use of the identical Greek word brephos for both PRE-born babe John in Elizabeth's womb recorded in Luke 1:41 and ALREADY-born babe Jesus lying in a manger recorded in Luke 2:16].
There was NO birth to control, and now you have allowed your body I owned as the would-have-been father of a now-parentless murdered child to be damaged and mangled.
You have caused me to lose respect for you.....you despicable creep.
Isa 65:23 They shall not labor in vain, or bear children for calamity; for they shall be the offspring of the blessed of the LORD, and their children with them.
1Tim 2:15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
1Tim 5:14 So I would have younger women marry, bear children, manage their households, and give the adversary no cause to revile us.
WOMAN: You got me pregnant, and now you have to pay for the birth-control delivery of a tiny human with an eternal soul inside me which the Creator has created who I am now responsible for. Do your duty as a breadwinner bringing home the bacon so you can support me and OUR child while I domestically stay at home during housework and internet home business and so avoid dangerously going out harassing other men by chauvenistically attempting to compete against them as a public-nuisance sexist feminist defiantly and belligerant claiming "equality."
MAN: There is no way I can support you AND a baby.
WOMAN: Find a way, you jerk.
1Cor 4:12 and we labor, working with our own hands. When reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure;
Eph 4:28 Let the thief no longer steal, but rather let him labor, doing honest work with his hands, so that he may be able to give to those in need.
1Thess 4:11 to aspire to live quietly, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we charged you;
1Tim 5:8 If any one does not provide for his relatives, and especially for his own family, he has disowned the faith and is worse than a disbeliever.
The answer to the abortion issue is NOT to not have sex. Humans were made to selectively fuck each other, before The Worldwide Flood:
Gen 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth."
and after The Worldwide Flood:
Gen 9:1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth.
Gen 9:7 And you, be fruitful and multiply, bring forth abundantly on the earth and multiply in it."
Gen 16:10 The angel of the LORD also said to her, "I will so greatly multiply your descendants that they cannot be numbered for multitude."
Gen 17:2 And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly."
Gen 17:20 As for Ishmael, I have heard you; hey, I will bless him and make him fruitful and multiply him exceedingly; he shall be the father of twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
Gen 22:17 I will indeed bless you, and I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven and as the sand which is on the seashore. And your descendants shall possess the gate of their enemies,
Gen 26:4 I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give to your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants all the nations of the earth shall bless themselves:
while being completely naked 24/7:
Gen 2:25 And the man and his wife were both naked, and were not ashamed.
and while being occasionally naked:
Gen 3:21 And the LORD God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins, and clothed them.
Lev 18:9 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your sister, the daughter of your father or the daughter of your mother, whether born at home or born abroad.

Lev 20:17 "If a man takes his sister, a daughter of his father or a daughter of his mother, and sees her nakedness, and she sees his nakedness, it is a shameful thing, and they shall be cut off in the sight of the children of their people; he has uncovered his sister's nakedness, he shall bear his iniquity.
Lev 20:18 If a man lies with a woman having her sickness, and uncovers her nakedness, he has made naked her fountain, and she has uncovered the fountain of her blood; both of them shall be cut off from among their people.
2Chron 28:15 And the men who have been mentioned by name rose and took the captives, and with the spoil they clothed all that were naked among them; they clothed them, gave them sandals, provided them with food and drink, and anointed them; and carrying all the feeble among them on asses, they brought them to their kinsfolk at Jericho, the city of palm trees. Then they returned to Samaria.
Song 7:1 How graceful are your footsteps in sandals, O royal maiden! Your rounded thighs are like jewels, the work of a master hand.
2 Your navel is a rounded bowl that never lacks mixed wine. Your belly is a heap of wheat, encircled with lilies.
3 Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle.
4 Your neck is like an ivory tower. Your eyes are pools in Heshbon, by the gate of Bathrabbim. Your nose is like a tower of Lebanon, overlooking Damascus.
5 Your head crowns you like Carmel, and your flowing locks are like purple; a king is held captive in the tresses.
6 How fair and pleasant you are, O loved one, delectable maiden!
7 You are stately as a palm tree, and your breasts are like its clusters.
8 I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its branches. Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples,
9 and your kisses like the best wine that goes down smoothly, gliding over lips and teeth of sleepers.
10 I am my beloved's, and his desire is for me.
11 Come, my beloved, let us go forth into the fields, and lodge in the villages;
12 let us go out early to the vineyards, and see whether the vines have budded, whether the grape blossoms have opened and the pomegranates are in bloom. There I will give you my love.
13 The mandrakes give forth fragrance, and over our doors are all choice fruits, new as well as old, which I have laid up for you, O my beloved.
Isa 47:2 Take the millstones and grind meal, put off your veil, strip off your robe, uncover your legs, pass through the rivers.

Isa 57:8 Behind the door and the doorpost you have set up your symbol; for, deserting me, you have uncovered your bed, you have gone up to it, you have made it wide; and you have made a bargain for yourself with them, you have loved their bed, you have looked on nakedness.
Eze 16:8 "When I passed by you again and looked upon you, behold, you were at the age for love; and I spread my skirt over you, and covered your nakedness: yea, I plighted my troth to you and entered into a covenant with you, says the Lord GOD, and you became mine.
Eze 16:36 Thus says the Lord GOD, Because your shame was laid bare and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotries with your lovers, and because of all your idols, and because of the blood of your children that you gave to them,
Eze 16:37 therefore, behold, I will gather all your lovers, with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved and all those you loathed; I will gather them against you from every side, and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness.
Eze 23:10 These uncovered her nakedness; they seized her sons and her daughters; and her they slew with the sword; and she became a byword among women, when judgment had been executed upon her.
Eze 23:18 When she carried on her harlotry so openly and flaunted her nakedness, I turned in disgust from her, as I had turned from her sister.
Eze 23:29 and they shall deal with you in hatred, and take away all the fruit of your labor, and leave you naked and bare, and the nakedness of your harlotry shall be uncovered. Your lewdness and your harlotry
Hos 2:9 Therefore I will take back my grain in its time, and my wine in its season; and I will take away my wool and my flax, which were to cover her nakedness.
Nah 3:5 Behold, I am against you, says the LORD of hosts, and will lift up your skirts over your face; and I will let nations look on your nakedness and kingdoms on your shame.
1Cor 7:1 Now concerning the matters about which you wrote. It is well for a man not to touch a woman.
2 But because of the temptation to immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
3 The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband.
4 For the wife does not rule over her own body, but the husband does; likewise the husband does not rule over his own body, but the wife does.
5 Do not refuse one another except perhaps by agreement for a season, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, lest Satan tempt you through lack of self-control.
Rom 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
1Tim 2:8 I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling;
9 (paraphrased) also that women should adorn themselves modestly and sensibly in decent apparel [especially in general-public view during seasonably warm days regarding proper ponytailed or chignoned or shawled hairstyle and armwear and legwear and sockswear, and for TV advertising], not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly attire
10 but by good deeds, as befits women who profess religion.
11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submissiveness.
12 I allow no woman to teach or to have authority over men; she is to keep silent.
13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve;
14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor.
15 Yet woman will be saved through bearing children, if she continues in faith and love and holiness, with modesty.
Rev 3:18 Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich, and white garments to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see.
In summary, the answer to the abortion issue is to facilitate Constitutional reading of KJV/RSV/etc. Scripture in public schools in accord with the non-establishment-against-cultic-religion and non-prohibition-of-Biblical-Christian-religion clauses of the First Amendment:
1Tim 4:13 Till I come, attend to the public reading of scripture, to preaching, to teaching.
not letting the American Criminal Liberties Union, People Against the [American] Way, Antagonists United for Separation of Church and State, Planned Parentlessness, the National Organization against Women, Fool Atheists and homogay perverts or anyone else stifle, disrupt, condemn, and criticize such Bible-reading necessity for the general public wellbeing:
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and wickedness of men who by their wickedness suppress the truth.
reminding people that they are creatures made in God's image as He stated the details in the first chapter of the Old-Testament book of Genesis regarding water and not simply lava covering the Earth, formation of the Sun on Day 4 of Creation Week, and lifeforms only reproducing "according to their own kinds," concordant with:
Job 11:12 But a stupid man will get understanding, when a wild ass's colt is born a man.
The wicked MUST be tolerant with the righteous (though they are the ones guilty of "hate crimes"), but the righteous - though frequently "correcting their opponents with gentleness," as the Bible says - must NOT be tolerant with the wicked and their wickedness:
Gen 24:60 (paraphrased): And they blessed Rebekah, and said to her, "Our sister, be the mother of thousands of ten thousands; and may your descendants possess the gate of those who hate them [but not allow any "Palestinian" State to be located within the territorial boundaries of land which God designated specifically in detail within the Old-Testament for Jewish and Hebrew Israelis]!"
