Your Tax Dollars at Work: Paying for Abortions

In his inauguration speech, President Obama promised "to help restore faith in government without which we cannot deliver the changes that we were sent here to make."

I guess he does not think he needs to be accountable to us when he spends our funds on abortion, even though, according to a 2006 Zogby poll, 69% of Americans object to such use of their tax money.

That's right, folks. Obama plans to overturn the "Mexico City Policy" begun during the Reagan era and promoted by President Bush, which prevented the use of your tax dollars to fund abortions overseas. Obama's planned executive order will once again allow your money to fund abortion, whether you like it or not.

And, as an added bonus, rumor has it he will sign it tomorrow, on the 36th Anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.

If the "Freedom of Choice Act" passes, your tax dollars will fund abortions here in the United States, too. And there won't be a thing we can do about it.

Sorry, but spending my money on the destruction of innocent human life without my consent or even a vote from my senators and representatives does nothing to increase my faith in government.
