“Not even waiting a week, the new administration has acted to funnel U.S. tax dollars to abortion providers overseas,” Rep. Tom Price, R-Georgia, said in a written statement.
After less than a week in office, President Obama got rid of a policy that prevented US funds from going to international agencies that promote or provide abortions. Read CNN’s story here. No surprise, supporters of the president’s move include Planned Parenthood (the biggest abortion provider in the country) and groups in favor of population control.
Population control…what a scary idea. There’s not enough food, housing, and health care for all these poor people. The problem must be that there are too many people. Let’s keep the poor population down by preventing the poor people from reproducing. Let’s teach them not to have children, and if they do “inconveniently” conceive, we can fix that by killing their babies. It’s better that way. Every child a rich child…
Hey, I have an idea! While we’re at it, let’s require couples to take IQ tests. If their IQs are too low, we should require them to be sterilized. We don’t want to pass along stupid genes. Also, let’s do genetic testing in utero, and if there’s anything wrong with the baby- abort her. We don’t want a society filled with “defective” children and retards. As crazy as it is, this is the trend and growing mindset in today’s culture. It seems like I’ve heard some of these ideologies before…Oh right, Hitler.
Why are abortion and population control the solutions to women’s health care issues in developing countries? Why don’t we spend our money improving conditions so that these women have access to proper health care, facilities, food and clean water so that they can give birth to and care for healthy children? I realize it’s not so “simple,” but I refuse to embrace a culture of death as the solution.
I wish my tax dollars felt the same way.
