Marybeth Hicks opined on Wednesday that President Obama “means what he says,” even going so far as to say, “I think he wants to be a moral leader” (“Obama speech may guide staff,” Culture, Wednesday). In his commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame, Mr. Obama called for civility on both sides of the abortion debate.

Of course, actions speak louder than words. We need civility in the president’s actions as well.

There is nothing civil about aborting babies, especially in late-term, partial-birth abortion, when it is clear the baby feels the pain of the procedure. There is nothing civil about Mr. Obama’s position on the passive euthanizing of babies who survive abortions, and there is nothing civil about Mr. Obama’s position of forcing medical personnel to participate in the heinous act of abortion. We need the president to set an example of civility through his actions - by reversing his draconian abortion policies.
