President Obama on Friday lifted a ban on federal funding for international groups that promote or perform abortions, reversing a policy of his predecessor, George W. Bush. This means that US taxpayers money will now be funding abortions in other countries.
Anti-abortion groups criticized the move. "President Obama not long ago told the American people that he would support policies to reduce abortions, but today he is effectively guaranteeing more abortions by funding groups that promote abortion as a method of population control," said Douglas Johnson, legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee.
Republican lawmakers were critical of the new president's action. "Just a day after thousands of Americans came to Washington to celebrate the principle of life, President Obama has made it clear that reducing abortions is not one of his priorities."
Obama, a Christian? Highly unlikely. No Christian I know would ever legislate to kill a child.
