Obama Violates Your Civil Rights

One of the first acts of Barack Obama after taking his second oath of office (not for his second term, but because the first one was botched) was to violate your civil rights. One day after the anniversary of the Roe vs Wade decision that legalized abortion, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order that ended federal funding restrictions on abortion.

Barack Obama signed a memorandum Friday that ends a prohibition on supplying federal family-planning funds and contraceptives to international aid groups that provide abortions, abortion referrals or abortion counseling.

In other words, as an American taxpayer, a portion of my income (withheld in the name of federal taxes) can now be used to help international aid groups promote and fund abortion, something I am strongly opposed to as a follower of Christ.

The report quotes Obama:

"I have directed my staff to reach out to those on all sides of this issue to achieve the goal of reducing unintended pregnancies," Obama said.

I can tell you how to reduce unintended pregnancies, and it won't cost you a penny -- don't engage in the act that results in pregnancy if you aren't prepared to deal with the potential consequences.

The report quotes Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, the House Republican Whip , as saying:

"During his campaign, the president expressed a desire to keep abortions rare," and signing the order "stands in stark contrast to that goal."

By ending restrictions to fund abortion, Barack Obama has made abortion more widely available than at any time over the past eight years. The last President to allow federal funding for abortion was Bill Clinton. Both Bush Presidencies, as well as President Reagan, publicly valued life above all else and refused to fund abortion in this manner. By signing this order, Barack Obama has made the Democrats the party of death.

I call on all of my fellow Conservatives -- and even those who just don't like the thought of killing unborn babies -- to stand up for what is right and vote for life in 2012. That's a long time from now, and many, many lives will be lost between now and then because of this order. But just as Barack Obama has initiated the potential murder of tens (possibly hundreds) of thousands with the stroke of a pen, we can save thousands of future lives with the cast of a ballot.

I just wish we could file a class action lawsuit against Barack Obama for violating our civil rights. He has violated my right to freedom of expression and freedom of religion by mandating that I help to fund abortion through my federal taxes.

God have mercy on his soul!
