I'm severely upset at Obama's recent activities. I had high hopes for the man. I figured I'd give him the benefit of the doubt and hoped he would bring about changes that I would be proud of. It took all of three days for me to be thoroughly disappointed.
In simple terms: my tax money is now going to help pay for abortions in other countries.
I am absolutely livid. Of all the things wrong with the world and our country...this is one of the first things that he chooses to give his time to?
I read this..."Population Action International, an advocacy group, said that the policy had "severely impacted" women's health and that the step "will help reduce the number of unintended pregnancies, abortions and women dying from high-risk pregnancies because they don't have access to family planning."" and just could not believe that people think this way.
Reversing Bush's policy DOES NOT reduce the number of unintended pregnancies! Killing a baby DOES NOT mean that it never existed!
Regardless of any view I have on abortion...why is this one of the first things being addressed? What about all the jobs we have been promised? What about the housing situation? What about the economy, period? I'm much more worried about my friends and family that have lost their jobs and are struggling to live...than I am about reversing a policy that shouldn't be reversed in the first place.
