As a follow-up to my “O’ Baby, Can This Be True” post, I wanted to offer up the following article from Yahoo (here), wherein O’ signed the order for federal funds – your money – to go to foreign groups that provide abortions. The yahoo article states that:
“A White House spokesman, Bill Burton, said Obama signed an executive order on the ban [known as the “Mexico City Policy”], without coverage by the media, late Friday afternoon. That was in contrast to the midday signings with fanfare of executive orders on other subjects earlier in the week.”
Hmmm…I wonder why this particular executive order was signed, not with fanfare, but in the shadows and away from the media? Granted, the media basically is in the tank for O’; I’ve seen non-stop news commentators blushing like school-girls with a crush when they mention him. But, there is something eerie about the fact that such a controversial use of taxpayer money would not be open for everyone to see and hear about.
The article that I am referencing goes on to state that:
“In a move related to the lifting of the abortion rule, Obama also is expected to restore funding to the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA), probably in the next budget. Both he and Clinton had pledged to reverse a Bush administration determination that assistance to the organization violated U.S. law.
The Bush administration had barred U.S. money from the fund, contending that its work in China supported a Chinese family planning policy of coercive abortion and involuntary sterilization. UNFPA has vehemently denied that it does.
Organizations that had pressed Obama to make the abortion-ban change were jubilant.”
Isn’t that nice? If we are going to help foreign countries kill innocent babies, then perhaps we should support multiple avenues in order to offer the best coverage, just in case one organization isn’t capable of killing enough children. O’ is also expected to allow federal funding for stem cell research. I guess I can figure out what sort of justices are going to be put on the Supreme Court when it’s time to nominate a new justice. And, history’s greatest genocide strides forth with a bold new assurance…
I wonder – truly wonder – if people really know what they are cheering for when they hear the bold, nationalistic rhetoric that speaks of Americans being better and Americans leading the world, but fail to see policies being enacted that lead to the senseless deaths of millions of innocent children. America is better than this and I hope that one day we see the evil that abortion is. In the meantime, aren’t you glad at the fiscal responsibility being shown here by your elected official? In the midst of a recession, America has decided that the best use of taxpayer money is to send funds overseas to kill foreign babies.
