Obama Reinstates Murder at Taxpayer's Expense
In his third day on the job, Obama has reinstated federal funding for abortions. I knew it was coming. I guess I just hoped I would be wrong.
President Barack Obama will sign an executive order later Friday ending the ban on federal funds for international groups that promote or perform abortion, officials said.

The so-called “Mexico City policy” has been reinstated and then reversed by Republican and Democratic presidents since Repulican President Ronald Reagan established it in 1984. President Bill Clinton then ended the ban, but President George W. Bush re-instituted it in 2001 as one of his first acts in office
