Obama Violates Own Executive Order, Funds Abortions

Operation Rescue: Heath care bill was passed under false pretenses and should be repealed

UPDATE: Obama administration is now backtracking with statements that federal money will not fund abortions in the PA programs. However, it remains to be seen whether or not this is true. Actions speak louder than words and we will have to wait and see how this pans out. We remain unconvinced. -OR

Washington, DC – The Department of Health and Human Services under radical abortion promoter Kathleen Sebelius has approved the first disbursement of federal tax dollars to pay for abortions, despite an Executive Order that promised the American people such abortion funding would not be permitted.

As part of Obama’s health care plan, Pennsylvania will receive $160 million to fund a “high risk” insurance pool. Those in the pool will qualify to have any abortion legal in the State of Pennsylvania paid for by taxpayers.

“We knew when Obama signed the Executive Order that would have allegedly blocked tax funding of abortion that it wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on. Now that has been proven to be true,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

“It is shocking and disturbing to see the ease at which Obama and Sebelius can flat-out lie to the American people and apparently get away with it. This kind of dishonest treatment of the American people and disregard for agreements made and signed shows that the word of both Obama and Sebelius cannot be trusted, which makes them unfit to serve — something we have been saying all along.”

Over 70 percent of the American people oppose tax funded abortion in the national health care system. Several Senators and Congressmen voted for the health care bill only on the condition that tax money would not go to fund abortion. Now that Obama has reneged on the agreement and violated his own Executive Order, Operation Rescue urges Congress to repeal the heath care legislation that was enacted under false pretenses last March.

    MR. President please open your mind and your heart to the truth. You know that it is LIFE we are talking about here. In your campaign you promised to the American people to fight for the rights of every American. You are helping to destroy the lives of many innocent americans. I pray someday you will see the truth. God bless America and God have mercy on all of us and may the blood of all these innocent babies not be in vain but in the conversion of all people who think abortion is a right.

    “When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit.” ~ Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Women’s Rights Movement Organizer, October 16, 1887 ~

    This is apalling! American babies betrayed again. I pray that Mr. President has a true conversion and sees the destruction he is allowing to innocent babies, who are the future of America. How can we ask God to bless America yet we destroy the miracle of life that He so graciously bestows on us. Have Mercy Lord, have mercy.

  • Leroy

    Obama is the most honest and least hypocritical President the USA has had in a very long time.

    Leroy, You are either not reading the news or you are smoking something funny while you are reading to come to that conclusion. Time to sober up! You’ve been had.

  • Tara

    Annie I’m pretty sure that Leroy is probably the abortionist Leroy Carhart from Nebraska and I wouldn’t expect much from someone like him. He’ll root for anyone that supports his baby killing ways! DISGUSTING!
