WASHINGTON (Reuters) ? President Barack Obama on Friday will lift restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, reversing a policy of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush, an administration official said.
“It will be today. He’s going to make an executive order (lifting the global gag rule),” the official said.
The Democratic president’s decision is a victory for advocates of abortion rights on an issue that has become a tit-for-tat policy change each time the White House shifts from one party to the other in recent years.
When the ban was in place, no U.S. government funding for family planning services could be given to clinics or groups that offer abortion services or counseling in other countries even if the funds for those activities come from non-U.S. government sources."
Your tax dollars are at work, funding abortions. It doesn’t matter if you agree with this or not. You are now forced to fund abortion, which many consider murder.
Thanks, Obama voters!!
