Skip to comments.It's Official: Obama Will Fund Foreign Abortions
Posted on 01/22/2009 10:23:23 AM PST by NYer
President Obama will issue an executive order on Thursday reversing the Bush administration policy that bans the use of federal dollars by non-govermental organizations that discuss or provide abortions outside of the United States.Maybe James Francis Cardinal Stafford was right when he warned, "For the next few years, Gethsemane will not be marginal. We will know that garden."
Obama will sign the executive order on the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states.
The policy, known in governmental circles as the "Mexico City policy," requires any non-governmental organization to agree before receiving U.S. funds that they will "neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations."
The language was announced at the United Nations International Conference on Population in 1984, and was approved by President Reagan and originally drafted by his assistant secretary of state, Alan Keyes.
Oh well, let them abort themselves.
And it’s only day 2 of his administration.
“Oh well, let them abort themselves”
Yep, might as well.
May a pox be on his house.barry that is aka barack
A lot of people don’t understand that Obama can say things like “new age of personal responsibility” because the left co-opts all those traditional values in name only and twists them to apply to the leftist agenda.
Redistributing wealth, etc., IS personal responsibility in their minds.
Read Carter’s bizarre book in which he claims every left wing position that America never supported, is actually a true American value.
Wake up folks it’s going fast!
He doesn’t want them “burdened by a baby”.
...the really sad part is that most of the Americans voters are not smart enough (or don't give a shiite) to know what has happened to them.
Not only have they offended most of America...
...they have offended God.
With all of the problems that confront us, and barely 48 hours into the job, he makes it one of his top priorities to pay back his friends in the abortion racket. Good job!
And Muslims won’t get abortions.
You said it. Most Americans don’t care as long as they get their “mortgage paid” and “gas paid.” Game over for America.
U.S. taxpayer money for foreign abortions?.....Zero is moving fast. He will have his socialist agenda up and running in no time!
If abortion is committed by using our tax dollars, will we be held responsible by a Higher Court for funding murder by paying taxes?
Is this a surprise to ANYONE?
What were Christians who voted for this man, and there were many of them, thinking?
Oh. They weren’t.
OH! That twit actress, Dana Delaney, will get her big wish! She said as much during an interview recently. Hell, she’s rich, if she wants to murder the unborn she can at least fund it with her own money, not us pro-life taxpayers! Sickening!
They sold out; and not even for a few gold coins, but promise of a piece of someone else's pie.
But he was adamant that not one dime be spent on medical care for a baby born alive following an abortion attempt.
Unbelievable! We can use our tax dollars to support infanticide in foreign countries but we cannot support affordable healthcare for our own living people right here!?
