Obama and Abortion

Fox News reports,
President Obama intends to repeal a Bush administration rule that has become a flash point in the debate over a doctor's right not to perform abortions.
This is great. President Obama is now starting a new fight. It is one thing to declare abortions to be legal. It is quite another to tell someone he/she must commit murder. This is just like the days when Christians had to stand before Caesar and confess that he is Lord while rejecting Christ.

Now I understand one need not be a Christian to stand against Obama, but this only helps the Prolife movement to go beyond mere religious groups. Now political groups that may have not united before may do so with every political and moral reason to stand against Obama.

My question is "Will Obama really force this issue?" Is Obama really going to force doctors to commit murder or give up their practice or worse (lawsuits/jail)? This seems to me to be fighting words. I guess time will tell. To be honest, I hope he goes full tilt.
