Why I am a monarchist...

...Reason #50.

For all those nominal Catholics who voted for Obama because you hated George W Bush, for all those of you who thought Obama would not be a radical, for all those who think social action out weighs the death of a baby, I offer this news, THE PRESIDENT IS WORRIED MORE ABOUT ENEMIES OF THE UNITED STATES THAN THE UNBORN...

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama plans to sign an executive order ending the ban on federal funds for international groups that promote or perform abortions, officials told The Associated Press on Friday.

The move, long expected in the Democratic president's first week in office, will be welcomed by liberals and criticized by abortion rights foes.

The policy bans U.S. taxpayer money, usually in the form of U.S. Agency for International Development funds, from going to international family planning groups that either offer abortions or provide information, counseling or referrals about abortion. It is also known as the "global gag rule," because it prohibits taxpayer funding for groups that even talk about abortion if there is an unplanned pregnancy.

Also known as the "Mexico City policy," it has been reinstated and then reversed by Republican and Democratic presidents since GOP President Ronald Reagan established it in 1984. President Bill Clinton ended the ban in 1993, but President George W. Bush re-instituted it in 2001 as one of his first acts in office.

The Democratic official and senior U.S. official who disclosed the plans did so on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to pre-empt Obama's announcement. Obama was expected to sign the executive order at a low-key event (1), one day after the 36th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion.

A Catholic Monarch would never allow his subjects to be murdered...

Who will bail out the unborn?

God save us from ourselves.

Hi Richard...
I am just sick about this.I still can't believe Catholics voted for this evil man. Unfortunately, there is more to come. I totally agree with you on the Catholic Monarchy would never allow this abomination.

I don't understand why so many people apparently cannot see how horribly wrong abortion is. It ought to be crystal clear; it is a simple matter of justice that innocent human lives should be protected. The stage of development of human life, whether embryo, newborn, child, adult, octogenarian, etc., makes no difference whatsoever.

And I don't see how people can appeal to the "right of privacy of a woman" to justify abortion and the so-called "Right to Choose." It does not matter whether murder takes place in private or not, it is still murder. And in any case, what about the "privacy" of the baby? Half of those babies are women, too. What happens to the "right of privacy of a woman" when they are killed with impunity?

What a use of our tax dollars! There are more pressing issues than this.
