Obama Quietly Signs Death Warrant
One day after the 36th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade US Supreme Court decision opening the legal avenue to abortions in America, the new President quietly signed the death warrant for additional victims yet unborn. In the quiet of his office, away the glare and scrutiny of the press, President Obama signed executive orders that will allow for US funding and government support for “family planning”. Literally a death warrant to babies yet to be born, and now denied life by the abortion lobby. Despite the thousands of protesters who were in Washington DC marching for life and the rights of the unborn, Obama ignored those voices, and instead paid back political favors with the blood of innocents. Harsh and unfair words you say?
Here is how the candidates handled the abortion question during the October 17, 2008 presidential debate. Mr. Obama attempted to hedge on his intense abortion rights position, but his debate answer clearly communicates his firm position: “With respect to partial-birth abortion, I am completely supportive of a ban on late-term abortions, partial-birth or otherwise, as long as there's an exception for the mother's health and life, and this did not contain that exception.” Senator Obama, October 2008 presidential debate. “An exception” for the health and life of the mother? So if a fully alive child is partially delivered, and the abortionist kills the baby, this is okay with (then) Senator Obama when the mother’s health or life is threatened? This barbaric practice is about the termination of the fully alive child’s life. The mother’s health is not the substantive issue here, but rather the exception (excuse) to fully trample upon the baby’s human rights.
To this substantive issue, Senator McCain responded: “Here is it is “again, the example of the eloquence of (then) Senator Obama. He's (for) “health” for the mother. You know, that's been stretched by the pro-abortion movement in America to mean almost anything. That's the extreme pro-abortion position, quote, "health." But, look; Cindy and I are adoptive parents. We know what a treasure and joy it is to have an adopted child in our lives. We'll do everything we can to improve adoption in this country. But that does not mean that we will cease to protect the rights of the unborn.” John McCain stood alone for the rights of the unborn, and pointed out the despite his eloquence, Obama’s position is extreme on the substantive issue of abortion.
So exactly what did the new President do within his first week in office to support his extreme pro-death views? A president can set public policy using executive orders. As POTUS 44, President Obama reversed pro-life executive orders by President Regan and President Bush (that President Clinton had also rescinded). According to the Pro-Life Action League http://prolifeaction.org “President Reagan was the first president to institute the Mexico City Policy. This policy withheld funding from groups promoting abortion overseas. Because it is an executive order, the current president simply has to sign an order to overturn it—no legislature necessary. Naturally Clinton overturned the policy; George W. Bush reinstated it; now Obama has overturned it again.”
According to the Pro-Life web site, “Obama continues to look for more ways to use our tax dollars to promote abortion abroad under the euphemism "family planning." Next on his agenda, according to his speech last Saturday, is funding the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). Bush revoked the funding several years ago after the Population Research Institute revealed that the UNFPA worked hand in hand with those who enforce China's coercive "One Child Policy," which forces abortion and sterilization upon women who have already had their one, legal child.” Pro-Life Action League “hotline” posting
So with the stroke of a pen, many unborn children with be threatened with the end of their life, through the immoral guise of family planning and pro-choice (death) policies advocated by the Obama administration.
