From National Right to Life

I knew he would do this. Now repent, you who voted for him.

OBAMA ABORTION AGENDA LAUNCHED TODAY with order promoting abortion in U.S. population-control program

WASHINGTON – President Obama today signs an order that will put hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars into the hands of organizations that aggressively promote abortion as a population-control tool in the developing world.

Obama's order overturns the "Mexico City Policy," under which funds in the U.S. "population assistance" program go only to overseas organizations that pledge not to "perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning."

This is absolutely heartbreaking, but it is not a surprise, as you conveyed. He couldn't have been more direct about his agenda, both in statements throughout the campaign and in his voting record during his brief stint as a legislator. For those who voted for him, this is the "change" you asked for.

I am not surprised about Obama's agenda...but I am flabbergasted at the Christians I know who voted for him who are now saying, "Wow, didn't think he'd move that fast on that." or "Man, I'm sorry he did that." or something similar.
tha one thing I feel pressing on me though, is to keep praying and standing strong on this issue.
It gives me strength each time I read you standing strong on this.
Thanks!
