yeah, i'm so happy that in this terrible economy that Obama has decided to reverse this policy to give money to INTERNATIONAL pro-abortion groups. what a great idea to spend money Obama. Instead of using it for the benefit of the American people, we are instead choosing to give out money that's going to be used to kill babies worldwide!

what a joke

Why should the federal government be funding starving foreigner's whoops baby removals again?

Organizations who promote abortion as birth control in poverty stricken areas = Epic Fail

Do the ends really justify the means? I say no.

Freakonomics would also say it lowers crime.

Good thing this policy wasn't around in the early 60's because a newly minted Prez who was born in Kenya might not have gotten this far. :idea:

Good point. It's his turn now. Tht's one thing that seperates the deomcrats from the Republicans. Democrats are pro abortion, Republicans are pro life. I just got to wonder, he said he was a christian, does he wonder about the day when somebody has to answer for all the dead babies.

He's not a Christian. No Christian can support genocide of the most innocent among us.

Most abortions are disproportianately black any way so who cares, right?

This should create many jobs, or for Obama decrease the folks eventually looking for one. Kind of a back handed way to decrease the unemployment percentage, but hey, we wanted change.

I don't see how this move can be defended, I honestly don't. With all the other needs that are more pressing currently, spending money on international abortions doesn't make sense. Especially when such a large chunk of our population is so opposed to the issue.

It's very easy to defend.

This isn't an increase in spending. It's a reduction of government red tape.

[quote]Obama ends abortion-related funding restrictions for aid groups
By MARGARET TALEV
McClatchy Newspapers
WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama signed a memorandum Friday that ends a prohibition on supplying federal family-planning funds and contraceptives to international aid groups that provide abortions, abortion referrals or abortion counseling.

Obama's move came a day after the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark abortion rights Supreme Court ruling of 1973, and an annual march in Washington to protest the decision. Abortion opponents were critical of Obama's order, while abortion rights groups said it could help prevent millions of unintended pregnancies worldwide and save thousands of women's lives each year.[/quote]

I don't see it as cutting red tape, I just see it as a bullshit move to appeal to the Pelosi crowd.

Actually it would probably save money as it gives more choices.

Using federal funds that had been banned, saves money?
Spending money that we were not spending leads to less money being spent?

Go ahead, we're listening.

No you're not, but I'll try anyway.

Funds were not banned from being given out. Organizations that in any way shape or form had anything to do with abortion were banned from receiving the funds.

This reduced the amount of organizations available to receive our aid dollars to do a certain task. Reduced choices almost always result in higher costs.
