    I do not believe Abortion can be classified as saving a life. Just the opposite actually, at least scientifically.

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

    Around the world? my money? because they perform abortions? Abso freaking lutley....

    No idea. I haven't read any of the curriculum supplied to the clinics. In my opinion it should offer every aspect of the decision.

    The point of ending the policy though is that clinics are not denied funding because they happen to offer the education.

    Performing abortions is not the point of the clinics. It's to education and provide medical/psychological services in terms of family. Abortion education is one minor piece of that.

    We are not funding clinics to perform abortions. We are funding to educate and advance the well-being of families in less privileged nations. Funding shouldn't be awarded to only clinics that offer minimal education.

    I think you're in denial about the real issue here. "happen to offer abortion education"? we're talking U.S. bucks going to clinics that perform abortions.

    How would this change my opinion that my money should not go to third world abortion clinics?

    Were talking about US dollars going to clinics that provide all education and procedures.

    The funding was previously denied to not only clinics that performed abortions but clinics that even offered education on abortions.

    The funding isn't for "abortion clinics". It is for any non-governmental organization that performs services in other countries. The rule just happens to burden family clinics. Those clinics that help educate individuals on safe-sex, STDs, pregnancy, and raising children.

    Why should these clinics be denied funding because they offer education on abortion? Under the policy clinics would even be denied funding if they offered education on why NOT to have an abortion.

    1. because they are foreign.

    2. because abortion kills life.

    any questions?
