    A pro-life group in Washington has launched a campaign to oppose what it calls president-elect Barack Obama's planned $1.5 billion "bailout" of the abortion industry.


    Last week, the Obama-Biden Transition Project posted a report on its website that calls for dramatic policy reversals on abortion, including $1 billion in taxpayer money for international abortion groups like Planned Parenthood. The report, titled "Advancing Reproductive Rights and Health in a New Administration," also calls for a 133-percent increase in funding for the Title X program, which funds Planned Parenthood clinics across the country.

    More right wing propaganda (untruths).

    Family Planning
    http://www.hhs.gov/opa/familyplanning/index.html


    Over the past 30 years, Title X family planning clinics have played a critical role in ensuring access to a broad range of family planning and related preventive health services for millions of low-income or uninsured individuals and others. In addition to contraceptive services and related counseling, Title X-supported clinics provide a number of related preventive health services such as: patient education and counseling; breast and pelvic examinations; breast and cervical cancer screening according to nationally recognized standards of care; sexually transmitted disease (STD) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) prevention education, counseling, testing and referral; and pregnancy diagnosis and counseling. By law, Title X funds may not be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning.

    So it is your position that Planned Parenthood does not ever perform abortions? Or they do not receive Title x funds?

    Revmitchell,

    I have linked to a copy of the plan you are refering to (see below). All Christians should be horrified by this obvious attempt to normalize the murder of babies in the name of "rights". The plan promises to "improve access to abortion care" (ie...make it easier to murder your child). The Obama administration's plan calls for pro-death judges to be appointed to the federal courts.

    Brothers and sisters in Christ, get ready for persecution. The media, and the liberal culture, are launching an all out assault on Christian morality. Obama's plan is just one part of the assault. Anyone who watched MSNBC's Keith Olberman last night knows that he is leading this assault. Last night on his show he said that opposition to homosexuality is hate speech. So folks, it is time to get ready.

    "You will be hated by all because of My Name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved...A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a slave above his master. It is enought for the disciple that he become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. If they have called the head of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign the members of his household! Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known" -Matthew 10:22,24-26

    I'm not saying this is going to happen over night. However the foundation has been laid by the wicked and it should be obvious what is coming.

    So what should our response be? Anger? Hatred? Revenge? No!

    "Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you" -Matthew 5:10-12

    "Make sure that none of you suffers as a murderer, or thief, or evildoer, or a troublesome meddler; but if anyone suffers as a Christian, he is not to be ashamed, but is to glorify God in this Name" -1Peter 4:15-16

    It's the government Health and Human Services Dept. of the federal government's position that funding abortions with Title X money is illegal. If illegal activities are taking place it's the administration's obligation to stop them. As Harry Truman said, the buck stops here so guess who that responsibility ultimately falls on. That's right, the President.

    So, it's your opinion that the Bush controlled HHS Dept. is breaking the law? I'm not aware of that so it's my opinion that Title X funding is NOT used to fund abortions. What's your position?

    It's a simple matter of fund accounting to by-pass this law.

    Set up separate funds for the abortion expenses and every dollar of tax money that goes into the non-abortion expenses fund frees up a dollar to put into the abortion expenses fund.

    The net result is that tax dollars to Planned Parenthood allow for more abortions to be performed - on our dime.

    So the "Anti-Abortion" President has allowed this to continue? A simple slight of hand?
