You are now paying for abortions


“America needs no words from me to see how your decision in Roe v. Wade has deformed a great nation. The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships. It has aggravated the derogation of the father’s role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts—a child—as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters.”

- Mother Teresa


Now consider that President Barack Obama has signed an executive order that ensures that our tax dollars will go to fund abortion. That's right. In the midst of all that is going on in our country and our world our new President found time to make sure you and I will help pay for abortions. Elections have consequences and President Obama is keeping his promises to the pro-abortion left.


Check out this story from ABC News:


President Obama signed an executive order today reversing the ban that prohibits funding to international family planning groups that provide abortions, as first reported by ABC News.

Under the hotly debated "Mexico City Policy," the U.S. government could not provide funding for family planning services to clinics or groups that offered abortion-related services overseas, even if funding for those activities came from non-government sources. It essentially barred recipients of U.S. foreign aid from promoting abortion as a method of family planning.

If organizations received government funding, they would "agree as a condition of their receipt of federal funds that such organizations would neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations."

Even though I knew it was coming, it doesn't seem to lessen the impact. Sad day.

Jill,

Well said. We knew this was going to happen but it does not make it any less tragic. Elections have consequences and we are only scratching the surface. Those who insist that the President has no real impact on abortion are simply mistaken.

Regretfully, this is the one of many promises made by our president to dishonor our Lord.

We need to do what we can do - pray that our Lord will give our leaders Godly wisdom and convictions regarding the decisions they are called to make.

Who is innocent? Who can point to George Tiller and say it is your fault? Or B. Hussein Obama's?

It is my fault, my fault, I am the point of resistence that didn't show to stand for righteousness. I try to take the blame alone but I'm not - disgusting pigs we.

But the babies keep getting butchered and young mothers lied to and made murderers. And heartless men made rich enough to buy other men's favor.

And disgusting pigs still rut. And babies are butchered.

Yes, pray that we reep Justice's Wrath as we so richly deserve. May every man be prooved a liar and His Truth glorified.

We have started down a very dangerous path as a nation. The agenda of this president and the people behind him should frighten all of us. I attend your church. My hope is that with your leadership, Church of the Savior will finally start standing up for and speaking out about what is right and just.

Bill
