Obama Rescinds Mexico City Policy

It didn't take long for President Obama to deliver the abortion lobby its first major victory.

Obama overturned a longstanding policy that prohibited tax dollars from being used to fund abortion in foreign countries on his third day as president and a day after thousands of pro-life activists left Washington.

The "Mexico City policy" was originally instituted by Republican President Ronald Reagan.until Democratic President Bill Clinton repealed and Republican President George W. Bush reinstated it in 2001.

Obama nixed it by way of an executive order on Friday, hours after pro-life activists ended their annual March for Life protest on Capitol grounds.

Liberals referred this the "Global Gag rule." Immediately after the executive order was announced, feminists groups like NARAL Pro-Choice America and the Feminist Majority mailed out statements to their supporters, urging them to thank Obama.

Christian leader and Family Research Council President Tony Perkins is deeply disappointed with Obama's action.

"At a debate last year at Rick Warren's Saddleback Church, then-candidate Barack Obama vowed to find 'common ground' on the issue of abortion and that he, as President, would work to 'reduce the number of abortions,'" Perkins reminded. "His action today flies in the face of that vow and probably sets a record as the most quickly broken campaign promise ever leaving the question, how many more broken promises to families lie ahead?"
