In addition to the obvious, direct ramifications for abortion rights, there's all the other shit lurking below the surface, and here's one of them:

"This right to life cannot be granted or denied by government, because it does not come from government -- it comes from the creator of life."

If that's the case, then why is the government stepping in? If "the creator" exists and he gives a shit (two things I am far from conviced of), why the fuck doesn't he step in and say something? Huh? We're waiting, God.

Despite separation of church and state being a standard, we don't have separation of church and state. This is a government that supports and is supported by Christianity. The fact that the President is using "the creator of life" to justify laws like the abortion ban is just one more example in support of this fact to add to the already huge pile.
