Obama reverses Bush ban on international abortion funds

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.
