WASHINGTON - Christian groups that oppose abortion are preparing to meet next week with the head of President Barack Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

The president of Concerned Women for America, Wendy Wright, says she arranged the meeting with Joshua DuBois to discuss two of Obama's stated goals for the office: reducing the need for abortion and encouraging responsible fatherhood.

Wright says she'll be joined by representatives of the Family Research Council, the Christian Medical and Dental Association and Care Net pregnancy centers, which help women with unplanned pregnancies have their babies and care for them.

Wright says she won't ask for money, but wants to show DuBois programs that succeed at reducing abortion. She says government funding for abortion only encourages more of them.
