And I seriously doubt they will be heard from now. We’ve heard precious little from them about China’s obvious, aggravated, denial of choice to Chinese women. Mosher did get a nice editorial in the New York Times tsk-tsking forced abortions in China. The Times, we should be reminded, is not unlike Winston Churchill’s description of Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin: “He occasionally stumbles over the truth, but he picks himself up and proceeds as if nothing had happened.
So it will be with President Obama. Reggie Littlejohn hopes the President will raise the issue with the Chinese. He won’t. We read in Kathleen Parker’s column about Chinese doctors sending emails back and forth describing the terrible problem of infants born alive after induced labor abortions. Senior party members advise puncturing their skulls as they are in the birth canal to avoid such dreaded complications.
Anyone who expects Barack Obama to raise this issue with Chinese officials is whistling in the dark. Barack Obama as Illinois state senator led the opposition to the Infant Born Alive Protection Act. He later said he would have voted for the bill if it had been like the one that passed at the federal level. Except that it was.
Of course, the world’s Number One enabler of China’s forced abortion policy is President Obama. He hesitated not at all last January before revoking the Mexico City policy initiated by President Reagan. After January 23rd, we are all forced to back abortion. Our tax dollars are backing the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and International Planned Parenthood. Between financial support for China’s brutality and a bailout of the world’s largest abortion provider, Obama has claimed the crown as the world’s premier abortion backer. Maybe that’s why he won the Peace Prize.
