I got the following message today in an e-mail from the American Family Association:
"President Obama has lifted a ban on federal funding for international groups that promote or perform abortions, reversing a policy of his predecessor, George W. Bush. Obama's actions mean that hundreds of millions of your tax dollars will go to help groups like Planned Parenthood perform abortions around the world. His actions came one day after the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized abortion in all 50 states.
Please take the action suggested below. It will not cause Obama to reverse his decision, but it will send a notice to him that unborn babies are human and deserve the same rights as the born.
Send an e-mail to Obama asking him to stop funding the killing of unborn children. Click here for a form e-mail that you can make changes to: https://secure.afa.net/afa/activism/TakeAction.asp?id=342
After you send the e-mail, please make a phone call (202-456-1414) and leave a message that you strongly disagree with Obama's using tax dollars to fund abortion. "
All I can say is that our country is in an ecomonic crisis and one of the first things Obama decides to do is fund international groups that perform or promote abortions with MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS!!!!
