First, Obama was already winning the pro-abortion, pro-artificial birth control female vote. Nothing changes that.

Second, neither artificial (unnatural) abortion nor artificial (unnatural) birth control are natural rights protected by the Constitution. Essentially, they aren't natural so they can't be natural rights. That is settled logic. It is absurd to deny it.

Historically, there are natural rights which are "indefeasible" meaning they are part of human nature. Artificial things are not part of our nature. Locke and Jefferson call them "unalienable" and "inalienable" which provided the US with an incomplete view of natural rights. You may say something was lost in translation.

Historically, there are also "privileges" which are granted by the government(s) and can be taken back by the government or restricted by the government.

Since traditionally the government(s) don't have the authority to order the execution of innocent human beings and is obligated to protect the lives of innocent human beings living within its jurisdiction, the government would not have the authority to grant abortion as a privilege.

The govenment must tell the physician, he or she is obligated to try to save the life of mother and child. The physician himself or herself has no authority to choose the life of one over the other and must do everything in his or her power to save both.
