    Thats all well and good if your prone to touchy feely nonsense. What about all this hand ringing about Americans with no health care or budget deficits and over all spending? Lets waste more money by throwing it at dependent countries.

    Re: Obama to end anti-abortion policy for overseas funds

    This quote from the article on yahoo caught my attention..

    "President Obama not long ago told the American people that he would support policies to reduce abortions, but today he is effectively guaranteeing more abortions by funding groups that promote abortion as a method of population control," said Douglas Johnson, legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee.
    Obama signs order reversing abortion-funds policy - Yahoo! News

    Anti-Abortionists (along with abstinence supporters) seem to believe that denial of a service or lack of education help stop what ever it is they want stopped.

    Education and a well funded knowledge on safety measures are the only way to stop abortions.

    Abortion should be legal, available, and completely unnecessary.

    You can't expect to vote on every program the US administers. That is why we elect representatives.

    Like I said you can validly argue against the overall funding. But if the funding is available, the abortion education exception shouldn't exist.

    I've come to accept that the abortion argument is forever circular. I just don't care about it anymore. We have better things to do than support failing needy governments overseas.

    Your money is now going to thousands of clinical across the world that are devoted to saving lives but also happen to offer abortion education.

    Answer this, Do you feel that medical clinics should be denied your funding because they offer unbiased education?

    You voted for the Senate and House that originally voted in favor of such spending plans. Don't like it? Write your Congressman/Senator.

    Does that "unbiased education" explain the consequences of an abortion and about the little human life that is growing within them?

    I'm of the mind it's much to late to do anything about our "leadership" except maybe shoot holes in their false arguments that the majority believes. Voting means nothing now a days.
