Obama Re-Institutes Funding for Abortion Abroad

Today Obama re-instituted "U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad."

This is just the beginning folks. Why any Catholic would thing the Obama's policies will in the long run mean less abortions, leaves me totally baffled.

Let's see, we seem to be having a bit of trouble with our economy, but we are turning the spigot back on to fund baby killing in other countries, specifically poor countries.

That must be Mr. Obama's way of saying thanks you world for supporting me in my Presidential run.

Read the horrible news, but let continue the fight.

Obama lifts Restrictions on Abortion Funding

President Barack Obama on Friday lifted restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, reversing a policy of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush.

The Democratic president's decision was a victory for advocates of abortion rights on an issue that in recent years has become a tit-for-tat policy change each time the White House shifts from one party to the other.

When the ban was in place, no U.S. government funding for family planning services could be given to clinics or groups that offered abortion services or counseling in other countries, even if the funds for those activities came from non-U.S. government sources.

"For the past eight years, (the restrictions) have undermined efforts to promote safe and effective voluntary family planning in developing countries," Obama said in a statement. "It is right for us to rescind this policy and restore critical efforts to protect and empower women and promote global economic development."
