Would Obama approve paying for abortions with tax money?

Would Obama approve paying for abortions with tax money?

EDITOR:

Would our President sign into law a health care reform bill that uses our tax dollars to pay for the ending of the life of an unborn child through abortion?

Within days of taking office our president revoked the Mexico City Policy. This policy did not allow our tax dollars to be used by any foreign organization, which performed or promoted abortion. Since that decision was made, our tax dollars are being used in foreign countries to subsidize organizations that kill unborn children.

Kevin Jennings is the founder of GLSEN, Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network. He was appointed by our president to be the “Safe School Czar”. GLSEN has held conferences where 14 year olds are given safe “fisting” kits. Before you Goggle “fisting,” please ensure that your children aren’t looking over your shoulder.

In early April, President Obama greeted the king of Saudi Arabia with a full bow. Later in April our president spoke at Georgetown University. Behind the podium is a gold “IHS” monogram, the first three letters in Greek of the name of the King of kings. During the speech the symbol for the name of Christ was covered by a piece of black plywood at the request of the White House.

The first Thursday of May is National Prayer Day. President Obama ended the President Bush practice of hosting a Prayer Day service at the White House.

In September President Obama hosted a dinner, in the White House, celebrating the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. He highlighted the contributions of U.S. Muslims. In his remarks our President stressed the values of Islam as being in common with our culture.

Considering the religious decisions and real world actions of our president, my best guess to my question is that our president would certainly sign into law a health care reform bill that uses our taxes to pay for abortion. It has been said before that the truth of a man is in his actions and not necessarily in his words.

Our tax dollars are spent on a host of programs, policies, etc, that I don't approve of. The two wars are good examples, the space program is another. But that's how a democracy works. We cannot pick and choose the programs we would like to fund and withhold tax dollars from those we find abhorent. Remember, abortion is a legal, albeit immoral, procedure.

I agree with Millerh113 that our tax dollars are spent on a host of programs, but I would want to know if our tax dollars will/could be spent on abortions. We are aware they are spent on the space program...and Obama should let us know, right? Besides, that allows the US citizens to make an informed decisions come election day.

Are we paying for weapons of mass destruction with tax money?
Are we paying for executions with tax money?
Are we paying for weight loss procedures with tax money?
Are we paying for drug rehab with tax money?
Is tax money at the same time being used to supply addicts with prescription drugs and methadone?
If abortion is made illegal someday, what will anti-abortion activists compare every issue to?

If Roe v. Wade were reversed tomorrow, what would be the consequences? The states could then decide whether to make abortion legal, or illegal. Then we would have abortion states and non-abortion states, similar to the slave state free state situation before the Civil War. In a non-abortion state, what would be the punishment for a woman who had an abortion? A fine, jail, a life sentence, execution? after all, abortion is murder. How about the abortionist? What should be his/her punishment? What would happen to a woman who had an abortion in an abortion state, then moved to a non-abortion state? Could she be prosecuted for murder? Sticky questions! Let's hear some answers from a prolifer.

So I hope the president enjoyed his Muslim lunchen the other day. Or was that Muslim recognition Week? I cant remember.

For far too long, our national policy has been abused by those anti-radical muslim elements, and it seems as though the Obama admin is taking firm measures to loosen the stranglehold this group has enjoyed.

He was raised Muslim and still practices some tenents of that belief, but I, pit bull marley, am a firm believer that his religion has no place in our government.

Nor his illegal allien agendas!

Good letter, John! Too bad most people can't see the truth! And who thinks it is good for this country to susidize organizations to fund abortions in Mexico or anywhere else?!! How many even knew that our tax dollars were being used for that? It is sad that so many are deceived.

Quail , Quail , Quail ,

"I was raised a Christian and still practice some tenets of that belief, but I am also a firm believer that my religion has no place in our government."
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

As a Christian I don't believe that fisting kits have any place in our schools . Do you condone and or practice fisting ?

Well Quailster,

"Do I condone it? Now there's a stupid question, Why should I care one way or another what sexual practices others engage in? "

I don't believe that fisting should be taught to the kids . You are supportive of government teaching it. Is there something that I wanted to tell you ? Yep ! I would like to see our leader Obama have Kevin Jennings " The Safe School Czar” demonstrate this on him .

I "goggled" fisting and nothing happened...the letter-writer should "goggle" logic and learn about how syllogisms work, particularly given his final paragraph.

Ban ALL religion in government including marriages.

Allow the government to only recognize civil unions.

The various religions can decide for themselves who they will allow to marry.

Only this would fully embrace the intentions of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America!
