Washington, DC – A Gallup Poll released yesterday shows that nearly two-thirds of the American people disapprove of Obama’s radical abortion policies.
The poll showed that only 35% approved of Obama’s releasing American tax money to groups that promote abortion overseas. This was the lowest approval rating of the seven policies that were included in the poll. (View the poll)
Obama released the funding late on his first Friday afternoon in office, a tactic that is meant to hide the information and minimize media coverage.
“This proves that Obama’s radical support of unrestricted abortion is an extremist position that is out of touch with the American people. He knows it, too, or he would not try to sneak these policies under the radar,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Obama cannot cover up the fact that he is fanatical about his support for abortion and will surely go down in history as the Abortion President.”
Obama promised abortion groups like Planned Parenthood that one of the first things he would do as president was sign the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA), which, if passed, would usurp the rights of states to regulate abortion and would strike down restrictions meant to protect women and their babies that are already in place.
“We can expect Obama to attempt to force more of his radical abortion agenda on the unwilling American people, but he underestimates our nation’s capacity for compassion and sense of justice for weak and vulnerable,” said Newman. “Citizens will never accept FOCA and Obama can be assured that there will be a very contentious showdown over every abortion-promoting policy he tries to slip by the American people.”
Operation Rescue, in conjunction with other groups, has produced a web site that carefully documents Obama’s radical abortion policies. It can be accessed at the following Internet addresses:
