Obama's Other Exec Order on Abortion

• Uncommon Sense
The deal was the key to gaining the votes of about a half-dozen anti-abortion Democrats needed to secure passage of the Healthcare Reform bill. So here is the kicker, only 14 months ago President Obama signed another executive order to deal with abortion funding… On Jan. 23, 2009, President Obama signed an executive order reversing the ban that prohibits funding to international family planning groups that provide abortions Under the “Mexico City Policy,” established by Ronald Reagan in 1984, the U.S. government could not provide funding for family planning services to clinics or groups that offered abortion-related services overseas. The policy banned recipients of U.S. foreign aid from using abortion as a family planning tool.

Lets look at the company "pro life" people keep.  You know.  as in you can judge a person by the company he keeps.  So historically who is against choice.  There is The Nazis, The Soviet Union, malmost all  of the East Block countries.   In general, and with few exceptions who is "pro life" The Universal church of pedophiles, most of the Arab countries.  Spain up until a few years ago.  On the contrary abortion is not legal in the most oppressive authoritarian regimes in the world.

 So... where do you want to live?  Pro life Saudi Arabia, or Pro choice Canada?

As I said above, the list is not a 100% correlation between oppression and anti-choice.  I for example would prefer Chile to Cuba, but I would much prefer Finland to both.

 Fro the company they keep, "Pro Life" people are, for the most part, authoritarian and some mix of Nazi, fascist, commie scum.
