    President Obama made clear on Wednesday that a controversial abortion rights law is not among his top priorities, despite a campaign promise to make signing the controversial abortion bill his first act in office.

    In his third prime-time news conference marking his 100th day as president, Obama said he was more interested in finding ways to reduce the number of unwanted pregnancies, especially teen pregnancies.

    "The Freedom of Choice Act is not my highest legislative priority," Obama said. "The most important thing we can do is to tamp down some of the anger surrounding the issue to focus on those areas we can agree on."

    That was a sharp departure from his comments at an address before Planned Parenthood in the summer of 2007.

    "The first thing I will do as president is sign the Freedom of Choice Act," he said at the time.
