(LIFENEWS) — Because he hasn’t done nearly enough to award those who have put abortion on demand in place in the United States and have fostered a society which has seen more than 55 million abortions since 1973, President Barack Obama took another step in saying thanks to the abortion industry.

In a ceremony on Thursday, Obama warded a Presidential medal of Freedom to pro-abortion Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. The citation on Steven’s Medal of Freedom lauds him for his commitment to “the noble vision of our nation’s founders.”

Obama described the jurist as “modest, insightful, well-prepared, razor-sharp” but left out any mention of the fact that Stevens is a supported of abortion on demand and went as far as voting against upholding the constitutionality of the ban on partial-birth abortions.
