Annually, US based foundations and individuals give millions upon millions of dollars to foreign organizations pushing for legalized abortion. The impact of this funding can be seen with the recent vote to legalize abortion in Mexico City.
Why should these millions of dollars be allowed to fund organizations that promote the killing of unborn people?
If these foundations were funding death squads or Al-Qaeda training camps, there would be public outrage. The Federal Government would come down hard, possibly closing down the foundations and sending people to prison. But when it comes to the "camps" used for training those who seek to legalize abortion, those who will operate the clinics, and those who will perform them, there isn't any outrage.
That's not to say abortion and terrorism are the same - terrorism strikes fear into the hearts of a people and often forces them to change their lifestyle in order to avoid becoming victims. But what is common between the two is that they both result in the deliberate and unjust death of innocent people - abortion is a terrorism of sorts in this aspect.
Funding and assisting terrorist organizations, even in the form of medical care, is already illegal.
What is the purpose in prohibiting funding of such groups? Is it to prevent social and political change in foreign lands? No. It's to prevent the murder of people both abroad and within the US, not to discourage political discourse.
Isn't the abortion debate just a part of normal political discourse? Sure - without the grants, abortion will still be debated abroad. The difference is that the odds are that debate itself will be the only result of the debate - abortion will continue to be illegal in most instances.
But with foreign funding comes multitudes of lawyers, bribes, coercion, corruption, deceit, public misinformation, and the establishment of "training" facilities and "base camps" in the form of family planning clinics. These are the training camps of abortion "terrorism".
To be clear, the issue isn't banning political debate or freedom of speech. The issue is about funding actions that inevitably result in the wholesale slaughter of innocent people.
The Federal government already bans the funding of terrorist groups, so it's not a far fetched idea to ban the funding of groups seeking to legalize abortion abroad. In fact, all funding, public or private, intended for the advancement of mass killings of innocent humans abroad, should be banned.
The money from these foundations and individuals is payment in advance for the future deaths of multitudes of people. The funding is not disconnected with the deaths of people - the funding paves the way for them - and pays for the execution facilities and training as well.
More than likely, the vote to legalize abortion in Mexico City wouldn't have happened without this funding. And the efforts don't stop with Mexico City either - these groups are pushing for legalized abortion in other Mexican States and foreign countries as well, all with the financial backing of US based foundations.
It's time to stop private and public funds from being used to legalize child killing abroad, and it's an issue the pro-life movement needs to address with all urgency.
