FRC Condemns President Obama's $441 Million Bailout of International Abortions

Washington, D.C. - On the day after millions of Americans solemnly marked the 36th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision that has led to the loss of an estimated 50 million lives, President Barack Obama took unilateral steps to expand abortion at taxpayers' expense.

In one of his first official acts as President of the United States, President Barack Obama rescinded the "Mexico City Policy." This policy prohibits taxpayer funds from going to foreign non-governmental organizations that use other funds to promote and perform abortions. Under the Mexico City Policy, funding for family planning is not reduced by one penny but recipient agencies must decide whether or not to engage in abortion promotion or provision. A policy against promoting abortion is only "anti-family planning" if one assumes that abortion itself is a method of "family planning."

Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council, had this to say:

"Yesterday, President Obama issued executive orders banning the torture of terrorists but today signed an order that exports the torture of unborn children around the world. At a debate last year at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church, then-candidate Barack Obama vowed to find 'common ground' on the issue of abortion and that he, as President, would work to 'reduce the number of abortions.' His action today flies in the face of that vow and probably sets a record as the most quickly broken campaign promise ever leaving the question, how many more broken promises to families lie ahead?
"Both sides of the abortion debate, from Planned Parenthood to Family Research Council, agree on a simple economic point: when you subsidize abortion, abortions will increase. Thanks to his actions today, U.S. taxpayers will be forced to take part in exporting a culture of death. We have a responsibility to respect the policies and traditions of the other countries, which have laws recognizing the right to life of the unborn, and it is an insult to fund organizations that are intent on overturning those laws by promoting an elite ideology of abortion on demand.

"One of President Obama's first acts is to rescind this vital government policy and reward pro-abortion groups. This should serve as a bitter pill for those who campaigned for him, all the while proclaiming their belief in the cause of life and family."

Actually, yes Thom. When I was 17 and my girlfriend at the time was 16 we realized that we weren't going to be together forever, that we had our lives ahead of us, and that neither of us wanted a child at that time. We took a bus into NYC from NJ and paid about $120 for an abortion at an accredited clinic.

We've since moved on. We separated about a year or so later and have gone on to find our mates and have children of our own that we are capable of providing for. Two kids still in high school make for poor parents. We both were and still are confident with that decision and it was a decision we made together.

What's right for some may not be right for others and what's right in some cases may not be right in others. For me, it remains a woman's rights issue and a decision that should be made by both people involved in the conception of the child. There are circumstances where abortion is a medical necessity for the health safety of the woman and there are also circumstances where the issue is a social one concerning young potential parents who opt for parenthood later in life when they're more prepared.

Either way, this issue alone is not enough for me to discard a valued friendship with you when we both know there are greater issues that concern the overall health and well-being of our respective families if not even our own personal survival in a world gone mad with greed.

Thom I like you a lot. Let's remain friends and just agree that we disagree on this subject. We agree on almost all others and there are far more important things going on that will directly affect our lives, as you know.

Friends can disagree on certain subjects.

C'mon, abortion isn't a political issue except for those who make it one. It's a woman's rights issue. They still have rights, even today.
