Ad Feedback

Conservative evangelical groups are set to meet with President Obama's new Office of Faith-Based Initiatives next week.

Leaders from Concerned Women for America and the Family Research Council will sit down with Joshua DuBois, head of the office, March 24.

CWA president Wendy Wright, who arranged the meeting, told CBN News that the goal is to discuss the need for reducing abortions and promoting better fatherhood.

"The White House faith-based office is now tasked with reducing the number of abortions-- something that pro-life groups have very good experience in accomplishing," she said in an e-mail to CBN News White House Correspondent David Brody.

"We hope to begin a dialogue that results in policies which actually work, not just financially benefit certain interest groups like abortion providers," Wright added.

One doctor who refused to perform an abortion over moral beliefs will also attend the meeting, which could lead to discussion on the abortion conscience clause.

That rule, first put in place by former President George W. Bush, was enacted to protect doctors who refuse abortion procedures based on their personal beliefs. Obama is expected to reverse the policy.
