Obama to Lift Ban on Overseas Abortion Funding – How do you feel about that?

January 23, 2009

Obama to sign Executive Order authorizing aid money for abortions today

Obama to Reverse Mexico City Policy Today

So how do you feel…  about your tax dollars going to Mexico to pay for, fund abortions?  Let’s say you are pro-choice, do you still approve of us sending dollars out of country to pay for abortions when there are poor folks alive here and overseas that we could  be feeding and or providing medicine to?

    That explains the increase in illegal immigration we’ve seen over the last several years. Since they couldn’t pay for abortions they had to give birth. The fathers had to find work so they came to the US. (This is the second thing we can learn from illegal immigrants. Fathers are to take responsibility for providing for their children, wanted or not. The other thing we learn from illegal immigrants is to get off our fat a**es and move to where the jobs are.) And those babies born more that 15 or so years ago are now old enough to come to the US illegally on their own. Thank you Obama for your efforts to curb illegal immigration. And here I thought I wouldn’t be able to find any to like about him.

    Our family is not for this lifting of the ban. It is moral wrong and we do not accept the acts that our President as right or moral. We are one hundred percent against these Presidential orders.

    There are many people in need. If we can help, we should. We are judged on how well we treat other people and creatures. I support Pres. Obama.

    I do not support sending our money to another country. People right here in the United States are suffering, and he’s sending money to Mexico? The country that invades our country illegally on a daily basis? No, I do not support this at all.

    This is wrong. We don’t need to send money to countries for their problems on abortion. Let them do their own thing. Money is needed here to get this country on the right track. We have to many folks out of work and losing money in the market. All these illegals have cost us money that could be used for our schools, hospital’s and its been a drain on our Gov’t.

    I strong disagree in abortion! That is killing a LIVING child! No matter where the money is spend here or there, it is still WRONG.

    It bothers me a lot to know that the media spreads rumors and lies. I do not agree with abortion, but I cannot make that decision for someone else. The government should not make that decision for anyone, either … in this country or another. That decision to abort a pregnancy should be influenced by one’s family, friends and church, not government. However, it has been my experience that Latin Americans, including Mexicans, are far better at family planning that are people in the United Sates and further are not in favor of abortion.

    Elizabeth, This is not about the government making a decision for someone. This is about the taxpayers paying for the decision. I am opposed to spending public funds for this in the US — much less foreign nations. The government already wastes too much of our money. They should only be paying for the Constitutionally authorized essentials for our nation, not every wish of citizens in other nations. Our government should be required to show where in the Constitution they are authorized to spend our money in this fashion. Answer: nowhere.

    Yes, the logic is twisted. That’s the point. Read the book Freakonomics for why it might just be true.

    I am pro-choice. When you choose to have intercourse you choose to take responsibility for the consequences – pregnancy, STD, etc. and pay for it out of your OWN pocket!

    Whoa! Nellie (I couldn’t resist). Show that a law is Constitutional? You better get back into the KoolAid line. That requirement went out before the ink dried on the original. Great idea. I hope you’re working for that requirement here in South Carolina. The single issue, clear title requirement for legislation seems to have a spotty record so far. Of course it would help if someone could figure out what our state constitution even says. Time for a rewrite.

    Bottom line, serious. Government has no business funding abortions anywhere.

    I agree that goverment should not fund abortions anywhere. I guess I was not as clear as I should have been. If government funds something, it has a say in how the money is spent. I do not know, although I should, that Obama or any other president of the US can make a fiscal executive decision. Sensibly, that should happen … but how long has it been since the government has been sensible? Now, Nellie, until we withdraw from the UN, the US will interfere in the affairs of other nations and fund things that it doesn’t but should fund here, like infrastructure.

    Sorry … typo on “government”. Left out an “n”.

    There are going to be abortions despite whether anyone likes it or not.
    If someone is set on getting an abortion and they don’t get this funding they will turn to back alley, illegal abortions that can lead to death for mother and child. It also goes for contraception.
    You may think “Yeah right, back alley abortions don’t happen” but they do. They are dangerous for her whether you think the mother is a murderer or not and if the abortion is failed because its not done in a clinic, that baby will be born with birth defects, and then rely on other tax and government funding. Immigrants move states and even countries just because they have to have children they cant look after so they try to find somewhere they think they can but instead they are moving, and still not being able to find work or support them self or their family.

    So really it’s help pay for it to be done safely, or have death statistics continue to rise and people with children with defects and children they cant even look after.

    No the answer is not help pay for it so it is done safely. Women are not that stupid. They know the difference between a safe procedure and a risky one. They will find a way to pay for a safe procedure in the vast majority of cases. The goal is to stop using abortion as birth control. To reduce the number of abortions from millions a year to thousands in America. Zero would be great but most understand that is not realistic. There are truly instances when an abortion is the necessary option. There is a difference between necessary and right. Quite frankly it is not America’s responsibility to provide my tax dollars to some foreigner for an abortion. If I want a foreigner to have an abortion I’ll send her a personal check. My money belongs in my pocket. Not yours, not Obama’s, and not my neighbor’s. When I want someone to have my money to do something I will give it to them. Other than that, it is called theft. So let’s work to reduce abortions to only those that are necessary. Let’s work to teach morality and responsibility to our society. That rape is wrong. That unprotected sex is irresponsible. Allow families to keep more of their own money so should their daughter become pregnant they have the resources to take care of both children. See all these are positive approaches to reducing abortion. No need for government to steal my money.

    Mitchell, fair enough.
    I do understand since you put in like that, that you don’t want to be paying for just anyone’s problems. I do think that if you do get pregnant -unexpectedly- you should decide what you are going to do and sort it out yourself with family/partner. I also agree that it should not be used as a birth control, but as a last resort. I never really thought anyone would have unprotected sex and decide before hand they would just get an abortion as it is more expensive than easy to buy contraception. I always just thought abortions were for those who used protection but it failed and aren’t able to spend 9 months pregnant due to school, work, life etc or dangerous for her to have a baby.
    But then again I don’t know just how often abortions are done everyday and how many of them are because they think it’s a way of birth control or because their proper birth control failed and are not able to have a baby.

    I support the decision as he is lifting it for A REASON. Not because people like yourselves are open to propoganda and emotional appeals. Try to educate yourselves as to why the ban is happened in the first place and why it may be a good thing that its going away. Most of you Americans are so ignorant and make me sick.

    I think Obama is nice, but there are a lot of nice people who are very evil. In fact the nice ones get away with more evil. I was excited when he became the first black president. This made America look better, but black or white, nice or nasty, evil is evil. I saw Obama on TV saying that a father’s responsibility does not end at conception, insinuating that fatherhood begins at conception. But according to what he says he believe, life doesn’t even start at conception, so how can he say a man starts the responsibility of being a father at conception. I caught him in contradiction of his beliefs. Plus this would eliminate a man’s responsibility for all the doctor bills made for prenatal care since the baby isn’t a baby yet, according to Obama! He is confused on the start of life with no exit doors, until he admits that life begins at conception when the father is suppose to start acting like a father, according to him.
    This is nothing new. The devil has been killing babies for thousands of years in many nations, and God has been destroying these nations for thousands of years. When we look back on the history of the United States, and see this country killed more children then all the wars in the history of this world put together, we will understand why the wrath of God came in a swift wind. I would say pray for America, but I think it is too late. Too much blood on the hands. If you can repent do it, one day it will be too late.

    first just let me say that i am totally against abortion. i am so against it that i believe if a woman were raped she still should not have an abortion, its murder, and i dont care whos feelings get hurt it is what it is. i do believe though in cases like rape though , that government funding should be allowed. the woman should know that it is still wrong though. for those who just lay up with no responsibilty, wake up in the morning and decide that they cant take care of a child, she should have thought beofre should took care of that lucky guy that night. keep your legs closed other than that make enough money to kill your babies at your expense! im sure theres alot of people who agree and disagree, i don’t want any part of it! STOP KILLING BABIES!(with our money)

  20. November 13, 2009 3:49 PM
