A while ago I had read an article entitled "Obama's Change, Orders Money Be Given to Pro-Abort Groups Abroad" by Chaz Muth from The Tablet. *silence*
So where should I start? Should I start by retelling what I had read? Or should I start by asking why and then try to comfort myself by making up excuses to justify what President Obama did? Well, either way I am sure you'll get my message...I am disappointed!
Last January 23, President Barrack signed the executive order reversing the Mexico City policy. The order will reverse the ban that was first instituted by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. THis action will now allow the federal government to freely provide aid to programs that promote or perform abortion overseas.
"What a terrible way to begin a new administration, with an abortion business bailout that will exploit women in developing countries for political ends," said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life Action, a Washington-based pro-life activist organization. "We should not export the tragedy of abortion to other nations, and we certainly shouldn't do so via the hard-earned dollars of American taxpayers."
When I first came here in America two years ago, I was really shocked of how openly Abortion Clinics are listed in the Yellow Pages. One year ago, I was worried when a doctor convinced my mom to have an abortion. Now, the President of a powerful country decided to help third world countries, which means Philippines is also included, to kill their babies.
Here we are experiencing an economic crisis and there goes President Obama who had just decided to use the money of the taxpayers of America to be given to organization who had renamed killing to "pro-choice" to make it more pleasing to their ears.
I am really disappointed. Why not use the money to provide counseling for pregnant women or even provide them with aid such as infant milk and baby clothes? Sigh.
I hope President Obama heard the testimony of this girl before he had signed that order. Please finish the Part 1 and Part 2 below...I want to thank Lori for sharing this video on her blog.
