Thank you Mr. President

I have been waiting for this one.

Those of you who aren't familiar with the ridiculousness of this now former law, known as the Mexico City Policy or the "Global Gag Rule", can read about it here.

While it sounds like it's all about abortion, it has a far bigger impact on women's and children's health around the world.

I'm just a little surprised he didn't do it on Day 1 like Bush did.

Now I want to know what he will do next!
