Abortion Bailout; The March For Life; Blogs 4 Life
Your Business Blogger(R), Charmaine and the Penta-Posse joined some 300,000 of our closest friends and marched for life “celebrated” each January 22nd. Charmaine worked the event with her team from Americans United for Life.
It took over three hours for the March to pass.
Obama was invited.
He didn’t show.

But Obama did offer to make nice: He won’t sign an abortion bailout executive order…until tomorrow, Friday.
Tomorrow, the 23rd, he is expected to issue by presidential fiat an order which will permit your tax dollars to pay for abortions around the world.
We all may differ on when life begins. Or if a baby is being aborted. Or if there is a link between breast cancer and abortion.
But most of the country does not want our tax dollars to pay for abortions. Especially overseas.
No one wants a bail out for the off shore affiliates of Planned Parenthood.

Professor Robert George of Princeton writes,
Obama is being served and abetted by a small number of Catholic and Evangelical intellectuals and activists who have been peddling the claim that Obama, despite his pro-abortion extremism, is effectively pro-life because of his allegedly enlightened economic and social policies will reduce the number of abortions. This is delusional.
The truth is that Barack Obama is the most extreme pro-abortion candidate ever to serve in the United States Senate or seek the Office of President of the United States.
The revocation of the Hyde Amendment, the Mexico City Policy, funding limitations on embryo-destructive research, informed consent laws, parental notification statutes–all of which Obama has promised to his pro-abortion base–will dramatically increase the number of abortions, and will do so for reasons that have been articulated by the abortion lobby itself.
It is the pro-abortion side that tells us that the Hyde Amendment alone has resulted in 300,000 fewer abortions each year than would otherwise be performed–and that is why they so desperately want it to be repealed. Yet the putatively pro-life Obama apologists claim that the man who pledges to repeal it is going to reduce the number of abortions. Let me say it again: this is delusional.
