What do Democrats have against human life?
It's not enough they want to ruin our existing lives by destroying our industries and our way of life in the name of global warming (I refuse to use the meaningless term "climate change"). The last week provides further evidence of their desire to prevent potential life.
First, Obama signed an executive order rescinding the "Mexico City Policy," under which funds in the U.S. "population assistance" program go only to overseas organizations that pledge not to "perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning." Second, he is expected to lift the limits imposed by President Bush on stem cell research, which will create a demand for "donor" fetuses. And, just as incredibly, he is pushing a "stimulus" package that includes hundreds of millions of dollars for contraceptives!
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi had this to say when asked how funding for contraceptives could be considered stimulus:
"Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government."
Anti-life is not a new position for Obama. While in the Illinois legislature, on those rare occasions when he could be roused to cast an actual vote, he voted multiple times against the Born Alive Infants Protection Act bills to provide medical care for newborns who survive failed abortions.
So, we now have a program of encouraging abortions internationally, incentivizing abortion domestically to increase the number of donor fetuses, and using contraception as a budget alternative.
What did you expect from a president who considers children to be punishment?
