Civil Liberties Group Questions Obama's Outreach to Christian Right

People for the American Way's Right Wing Watch, which tracks conservative evangelicals' push to influence the social agenda, is not amused:

If the Obama administration thinks that it is going to win support for anything that it does on this issue from groups like CWA and FRC, it is sorely mistaken ... which is something they will presumably learn once this meeting takes place.

These are not moderate, open-minded groups looking for common ground - they are militant, anti-choice groups committed to, above all, making abortion illegal everywhere and for everyone, with no exceptions.

It is hard to understand what the administration expects to gain by meeting with such groups to discuss efforts to reduce abortion considering that the only option such groups support is to outlaw them entirely.
