How did Barack Obama respond? By signing into law the authorization of American taxpayer money to finance abortions abroad - so in the midst of our financial crisis, we will be using our American money to pay for destroying the lives of those at their most vulnerable in countries around the world.
"To mark the anniversary, Obama signed an executive order that lifts restrictions on foreign organizations, and will now allow foreign organizations that perform abortions to be eligible from U.S. support. The so-called Mexico City Policy, which 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," was first instituted by President Ronald Regan in 1984. Former President Bill Clinton lifted the ban as one of his first acts in office in 1993, although 8 years later George W. Bush reinstated the ban as one of his first acts as president."
Guess we could say you're putting our money where your mouth is, Barry.
In honor of your decision to set us back eight years with one stroke of your pen, we offer this:
Thank God your mother made the right choice.
