Obama reverses Bush ban on international abortion funds

January 24, 2009

— President Barack Obama on Friday struck down the Bush administration’s ban on giving federal money to international groups that perform abortions or provide abortion information — an inflammatory policy that has bounced in and out of law for the past quarter-century.

Obama’s move, the latest in an aggressive first week reversing contentious Bush policies, was warmly welcomed by liberal groups and denounced by abortion rights foes.

The ban has been a political football between Democratic and Republican administrations since GOP President Ronald Reagan first adopted it 1984. Democrat Bill Clinton ended the ban in 1993, but Republican George W. Bush reinstituted it in 2001 as one of his first acts in office.

“For too long, international family planning assistance has been used as a political wedge issue, the subject of a back and forth debate that has served only to divide us,” Obama said in a statement released by the White House. “I have no desire to continue this stale and fruitless debate.”

He said the ban was unnecessarily broad and undermined family planning in developing countries.

“In the coming weeks, my administration will initiate a fresh conversation on family planning, working to find areas of common ground to best meet the needs of women and families at home and around the world,” the president said.

Obama issued the presidential memorandum rescinding the Bush policy without coverage by the media, late Friday afternoon. The abortion measure is a highly emotional one for many people, and the quiet signing was in contrast to the televised coverage of Obama’s announcement Wednesday on ethics rules and Thursday’s signing of orders on closing the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and banning torture in the questioning of terror suspects.

His action came one day after the 36th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion.

The Bush policy had banned U.S. taxpayer money, usually in the form of Agency for International Development funds, from going to international family planning groups that either offer abortions or provide information, counseling or referrals about abortion as a family planning method.

Critics have long held that the rule unfairly discriminates against the world’s poor by denying U.S. aid to groups that may be involved in abortion but also work on other aspects of reproductive health care and HIV/AIDS, leading to the closure of free and low-cost rural clinics.

Supporters of the ban say that the United States still provides millions of dollars in family planning assistance around the world and that the rule prevents anti-abortion taxpayers from backing something they believe is morally wrong.

The ban has been known as the “Mexico City policy” for the city a U.S. delegation first announced it at a U.N. International Conference on Population.

Let me back up a bit, I need to clarify...I am wrong in saying that this foriegn money was "on hold" by the "Mexico City Policy." After reviewing, it doesn't look like they with-held money that was spent on abortion services only but that these non-government agencies were only not to offer abortion services with the federal funding...so I stand corrected on that piece of my comment. The stipulation was, if you these non-government agencies were to recieve federal funding, then they were not to provide abortion funding...so, I guess this IS more of an issue about abortion.

In the long run we are just giving money that we borrowed in the first place. We are increasing our national debt to give away money. That would be like taking a second mortgage to give money to a needy person that in all reality will never have the chance to pay it back. Does that make any fiscal sense? Would you do this with your personal money?

Abortion is a heated issue. I don't care if you are pro-abortion or anti-abortion; I do not feel at this time of financial concern that we ought to get back to sending our hard-earned tax dollars for something that has been on-hold. I am NOT saying that we should be calloused and not provide any kind of foreign aid, but rather it should be a private donation and not from tax-payer's coiffure. Granted this family planning money is used for "good" and for more than just abortions, but the abortion issue is used and argued as it does evoke strong emotions. Personally, I am against abortion. Not because I am a Christian (which instantly makes me stupid in most liberal viewpoints), but because I am a healthcare provider. This is more of an issue of funding, though, than abortion. I have worked in family planning clinics through the health department (which do not provide abortion) and yes, there is a lot of good and they are needed...BUT should we really be using tax payer’s money for this--especially to start NEW funding that is currently not there? Maybe if you feel so strongly about family planning in foreign countries, you should personally send money and take some personal responsibility in supporting things you believe in rather than depend on the people who actually pay the taxes to fund in your beliefs...

Note: Our great American Press again promotes deception and anti OBama propaganda....Here are the FACTS . . .Exerpts from the NEWS ? ? ?-----------------------------------------------------------------Mr Obama has pledged to end the culture wars on social issues that have given American politics for a generation and did not allow television cameras to film him signing the executive order reversing the Bush abortion funding ban on aid agencies abroad, in order not to provoke pro-life groups. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------When he finally did sign the order he issued a statement in a bid to placate abortion critics by promising to "reach out to those on all sides of this issue to achieve the goal of reducing unintended pregnancies." He added: "It is time that we end the politicisation of this issue." But despite his efforts, the reaction was brutal. Family groups accused him of plotting the "infanticide" of African children.President Obama said: "I look forward to working with Congress to restore U.S. financial support for the U.N. Population Fund. By resuming funding to UNFPA, the U.S. will be joining 180 other donor nations working collaboratively to reduce poverty, improve the health of women and children, prevent HIV/AIDS and provide family planning assistance to women in 154 countries."UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund http://www.unfpa.org/Does UNFPA promote abortion?No. Guided by paragraph 8.25 of the Cairo Programme of Action, UNFPA does not support or promote abortion as a method of family planning. It accords the highest priority and support to voluntary family planning to prevent unwanted pregnancies so as to eliminate recourse to abortion. UNFPA supports governments to strengthen their national health systems to deal effectively with complications of unsafe abortions, thereby saving women’s lives (every year, an estimated 68,000 women die as the result of unsafe abortions). ---------------------------------------------------------------------It is time for Americans to grow up and search for Truth.The American Press is and has been under control of the Republican Corporate Elitist Interests for years and is still putting out Propaganda thru deception. Go check it out yourself at . . .http://www.unfpa.org/

It sure is fun to throw s**t like a chimp, isn't it?OK, GA, marion, and the rest of the children: go sit down so the adults can talk."Nepal’s maternal mortality rate is among the highest in South Asia, in part due to the numerous deaths caused by unsafe abortion. Recognizing that the criminalization of abortion was greatly contributing to Nepal’s high maternal morbidity and mortality rates, theNepalese Ministry of Health developed a plan to decriminalize abortion; however, the plan involved forming a coalition of NGOs to create advocacy strategies.69 A number of these NGOs received U.S. funds and were thus unable to participate in the Ministry’s plan without losing their funding. Even though Nepal eventually legalized abortion in a historic move in 2002, the Mexico City Policy will continue to reduce the ability of Nepalese NGOs to provide safe and legal abortion services, since U.S. funding is the largest source of foreign family planning assistance in Nepal. As a result, organizations will likely choose to continue receiving USAID funds rather than risking bankruptcy.Another practical effect of the Mexico City Policy has been the closure of family planning clinics due to USAID’s withdrawal of funding, notably in sub-Saharan Africa. Seventeen centers in Uganda, five centers in Kenya, one outreach program serving poor communities in Ethiopia, and several clinics in Tanzania have closed for this reason. In Kenya alone, the five clinics that closed served tens of thousands of women. They provided basic services that many poor women could not otherwise afford or access, including well-baby care, pre- and post-natal obstetric care, HIV testing and counseling, and contraception. In order to avoid closing seven more health posts and one maternal nursing home when President Bush imposed the global gag rule, health care provider Marie Stopes International of Kenya laid off one-fifth of its staff, cut the remaining employees’ salaries, reorganized its clinic structure, and increased client fees. The country’s other leading reproductive health provider, the Family Planning Association of Kenya, laid off nearly one-third of its staff, raised patient fees, and cut salaries in order to keep its remaining clinics open and running without U.S. funding."http://www.bc.edu/schools/law/lawreviews/meta-elements/journals/bctwj/24_1/10_FMS.htmSee how knowing stuff can help you when you want to make an argument?

man, obama is such a breath of fresh air. yeah, some of you people are crazy. so, you say we just need to provide counseling, education, etc. for WOMEN/GIRLS...like it's all put on them. THEY are the ones that have to work to prevent it, THEY have to do all the work. christ, without legal, safe abortion, women are still at the mercy of men and their dicks. safe/legal abortion just makes sense people...stop thinking so narrowly. way to go barack...way to go.

Jaywalker - I respectfully advise you to do as Mr_Economy suggests and read the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961 as well as how the announcement of Ronald Reagon, known as the Mexico City Policy, expanded the scope of this Act.Your tax dollars are not being used to cover the cost of performing an abortion. They will, however, now be used to provide advice, counsel, and information regarding abortion. To use your own words, bit of a difference.I do agree with your opinion of anyone who finds "that moronic phrase" witty or intelligent though.

NP - you have to be smarter than that.In the Old Testament there is a distinction between ceremonial and spiritual law. The ceremonial law has been swept away. Compare and contrast the Old and New Testament to follow the logic. Your premise and argument is a non-starter. Pull all the scripture you want - but use it in context. Context is key and it does not support this tack. Your reference to Exodus 21:23 is specifically addressed by Jesus in the New Testament. Since your Bible is handy, check it out.

I'll save everyone the trouble of looking it up. (From the New Revised Standard Version)Exodus 2122 When people who are fighting injure a pregnant woman so that there is a miscarriage, and yet no further harm follows, the one responsible shall be fined what the woman’s husband demands, paying as much as the judges determine. 23If any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, 24eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, 25burn for burn, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.Numbers 5:16 Then the priest shall bring her near, and set her before the Lord; 17the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel, and take some of the dust that is on the floor of the tabernacle and put it into the water. 18The priest shall set the woman before the Lord, dishevel the woman’s hair, and place in her hands the grain-offering of remembrance, which is the grain-offering of jealousy. In his own hand the priest shall have the water of bitterness that brings the curse. 19Then the priest shall make her take an oath, saying, ‘If no man has lain with you, if you have not turned aside to uncleanness while under your husband’s authority, be immune to this water of bitterness that brings the curse. 20But if you have gone astray while under your husband’s authority, if you have defiled yourself and some man other than your husband has had intercourse with you’— 21let the priest make the woman take the oath of the curse and say to the woman—‘the Lord make you an execration and an oath among your people, when the Lord makes your uterus drop, your womb discharge; 22now may this water that brings the curse enter your bowels and make your womb discharge, your uterus drop!’ And the woman shall say, ‘Amen. Amen.’

All:I think Exodus 21 is particularly interesting, because it says that if some men start a fight, and a pregnant woman gets drawn into the fight, and has a miscarriage as a result:1. monetary damages apply to the miscarriage2. "an eye for an eye" applied to the woman.The live woman is a person and the unborn fetus is property, according to this clause.

0

Newell_Post 5 years, 3 months ago

tin:See Exodus 21, the chapter right after the 10 commandments. It stipulates monetary damages for causing an unwanted miscarriage. Monetary damages were the biblical remedy for destruction of another person's property. The punishment for crimes against persons was "an eye for a eye, a tooth for a tooth, and a life for a life." By stipulating monetary damages, the fetus was classified as property and not as a human life. You might also want to check out Numbers 5 which required the temple priests to perform abortions on women who became pregnant as the result of adultery. While doing that, you might want to consult one of the more objective translations and avoid the ones crafted by revisionist Pentecostals.

President Reagan established and President GHW Bbush continued the policies until President Clinton did what the current occupant has just done. Pres. W Bush reinsituted and now Pres. Obama did - not on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade as did Clinton to de-politicize it. What a joke.There should be some way that my tax money doesn't go to support these morally reprehensible practices. Despite some other reasonable ideas, this is exactly why I voted for John McCain. We get a chance to do better in 4 years. Of course, Obama will be on the campaign trail by the summer of 2011 at the latest.

Good lord anti-choice nuts are drama queens. "War on the womb?" Really?I don't suppose any of you actually bothered to find that the 1961 Foreign Assistance Act, which is still in place, prohibits money given by USAID to be used, "to pay for the performance of abortions as a method of family planning, or to motivate or coerce any person to practice abortions."The Mexico City Policy was never necessary, because USAID money was never funding abortions. Instead, it was an attempt by Reagan to force an ideology as a precondition for aid. Under the Mexico City Policy, if an NGO so much as lobbied a country for legalized abortion in the case of life-threatening emergency, it was immediately cut off from any USAID funding. Again, Mexico City Policy never has, and never will have anything to do with funding abortions. Stupidity cloaked as morality, and sipped like grape KoolAid by the Religious Right.

Many of the problems the world faces (global warming, food, environmental) are due to human overpopulation. If the planet and the human race are to survive in the long term, it would be good to have a human population that is much lower than at present. Yes, is would be more aesthetically appealing to do that through pregnancy prevention instead of abortion, but that doesn't always work.The unborn fetus was not a human life under the laws of Moses, nor was it a human life under the English common law, nor is it a human life under the laws of the United States. I wish foreign countries and individuals would pay for their own abortions, but global population reduction is too important to leave to chance.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limits_t...

So now Obama uses international family planning assistance "as a political wedge issue" to divide Americans and promote the killing of preborn human babies in foreign lands. How will America's image in the world, something International Socialists care greatly about, be improved by funding abortions among the world's mothers? A new military front is now opened, aptly called War on the Womb - it's a bloody war just declared by Obama! The casualities will not be reported or seen in the major newspapers nor in the vast wasteland called TV news. There is no hope from abortion - only death.
