Right on cue, as pro-aborts nationwide were wetting themselves in excitement over being the 'majority' during the 36th anniversary of fetal death on demand, a national Gallup poll revealed that not only are a strong majority of Americans pro-life, but they are none too happy with President Barack Obama overturning the Mexico City Policy. The policy, which was first introduced by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, prevented funding of non-governmental organizations that promote or perform abortions overseas.
So, in addition to reinstating 'change' that Americans were not 'hoping' for, Obama broke a major campaign promise to those of us who don't accept the skull crushing cruelty of abortion by promoting policies that provably increase the number of abortions worldwide. I don't know about you, but my idea of 'reducing abortions' wouldn't include throwing exorbitant amounts of tax-payers' money at this dangerous, murderous elective procedure.
Gallup respondents stated that overturning the Mexico City Policy engendered more opposition than any of Obama's presidential actions thus far, producing the lowest level of support from both Democrats and Republicans. The poll revealed that 58 percent of Americans oppose Obama's pro-abortion decision while just 35 percent support it and 7 percent have no opinion.
It's very important to keep in mind that the majority of those who support the decision are under the false impression propagated by pro-abort media that overturning the policy 'does not directly fund abortions'. Look up any mainstream summary of the decision and you will find the sugar coating of this death pill with drivel such as CNN's disclaimer that, 'Overturning the Mexico City Policy does not fund abortions. Instead what is happening now is that U.S. money can go to groups that support health clinics where abortion is among their services.'
What this means in choice-speak is that Spineless Baby Killer One can get their bloody hands on U.S. taxpayer dollars and hand it over to Spineless Baby Killer Two, who does the actual dirty work. Sort of like when clinic workers convince themselves that they aren't murderers because they only handed the catheter over, they weren't the ones actually suctioning the infants' brains out through a tube.
Abortion proponents, by nature, are self-deceiving. If any human being can look at a 4D sonogram, read the basics of elementary school biology, see pictures of fetal development or view the end result of an abortion procedure - and yet still convince themselves that abortion isn't ending a human life - then you know you are dealing with a group that is either mentally deficient or living in a fictional world of denial.
So, considering their profound ability to deceive themselves, it isn't unusual to find that many pro-aborts think Obama's actions on the Mexico City Policy 'won't fund abortions'. There is now over $400 million in federal funds which will flow to abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes International for their foreign efforts. I'm fairly certain that the Americans who believe that the Planned Parenthood play money won't go toward funding abortion are the same people who give money to a homeless alcoholic and think he's going to save it for his mortgage down-payment.
Apparently missing the memo that the public shouldn't know that the overturned Mexico City Policy will directly fund abortion, Walter Odhiambo - the Kenya director for Marie Stopes International - made a public announcement to the Associated Press that the British-based abortion business will now expand its abortion services in rural Africa.
According to research by the Steadman Group conducted last month, the overwhelming majority of Kenyans are pro-life. They are struggling with povery, health issues, even hunger... not a burning desire for the local doctor to stock up on dilation and curettage machines. What rural Africa needs is modern medicine, not abortion.
Odhiambo complains that he had to shut down two Marie Stopes Kenya clinics because of the policy, which resulted in 'thousands of maternal deaths that could have been averted were it not for the Mexico City Policy'. Those are rather condemning words when you consider that had he ended his affiliation with the British abortion business, his clinics would have continued to receive the foreign aid funds, thus preventing the 'thousands' of undocumented and unsubstantiated maternal deaths he speaks of.
But think of it this way. Even if the maternal death toll were fact and not just another puzzle piece of pro-abort fiction - look at the price abortion advocates are willing to pay to fund fetal murder. Abortion 'rights' at any price is just downright creepy. But what these non-governmental organizations are proposing is simply sadistic. Why are we throwing money at the baby butchers again? Say, our country isn't broke or anything is it?
The overturning of the Mexico City Policy - aside from being economically retarded - is not about helping women in developing countries. It is instead a money-grubbing attack on black and brown children. It is a sad fact that when it comes to abortion, killing minorities pays. Find countries where the children are dark skinned and you'll find countries where Obama is sending money to abort them.
According to Planned Parenthoods own statistics from The Alan Guttmaucher Institute, almost as many African-American children are aborted as are born in America. A black baby is three times more likely to be murdered in the womb than a white baby. Every three days more African-Americans are killed by abortion than have been killed by the Ku Klux Klan in its entire history.
The numbers are truly staggering. Since 1973, abortion has reduced the black population by over 25 percent. To put it into proper perspective, more black children are killed by abortion than twice the total number of deaths from AIDS, violence, accidents, cancer and heart disease... combined!
Obama's ace in the hole is the sad fact that African Americans are so hungry to see one of their own grab the presidency that they wishfully will him into being the 'brother' that, by all the evidence, he is not. Not only is he ignoring the very real holocaust of his own people in America, he is now providing funds for McAbortion clinics to increase in Africa as well. Keep in mind we're talking about a man who is a firm and ferocious advocate of stabbing kids in the back of the head and suctioning their brains out. We really shouldn't marvel that he is overturning human rights policies that the majority of Americans firmly support.
The bottom line is, we should not export the tragedy of abortion to other nations, and we certainly shouldn't do so via the hard-earned dollars of American taxpayers. Poor women in developing nations are not calling for help to kill their children. They are calling for food, housing, and medicine for themselves and their families. Any organization that would deny that, simply because it cannot cash in on killing kids, is an organization that truly belongs to an Obama-nation.
