On a day when hundreds of thousands of ardent and dedicated right-to-lifers descend on the nation’s capitol to commemorate the 51 million unborn children legally destroyed by abortion, Obama is expected to sign an Executive Order overturning the Mexico City Policy.Although this move was expected, couldn’t Obama’s timing have been a little more sensitive? What a slap in the face to those who have sacrificed their time and resources to travel to Washington to be witness to and protest the greatest human rights abuse of our times. How must all of the youth who may be attending their first March for Life feel?The Mexico City policy prohibits your tax dollars from being used to promote or perform abortions overseas. The impact of Obama’s Executive Order? Here’s how Doug Johnson, National Right to Life Legislative Director, put it: “One effect of Obama’s order will be to divert many millions of dollars away from groups that do not promote abortion, and into the hands of those organizations that are most militant in promoting abortion as a population-control method.” Groups like Planned Parenthood.We need to remind Obama supporters over and over that he seduced them into believing he sincerely wanted to reduce the number of abortions. Sadly, he failed to consult the millions of babies who will experience a violent abortion death from the first of his many, expected pro-abortion policies.Barbara Lyons
