WASHINGTON (AP) – In a long expected move, President Barack Obama plans to sign an executive order ending the ban on federal funds for international groups that perform abortions or provide information on the option, officials told The Associated Press on Friday.

Liberal groups welcomed the decision while abortion rights foes criticized the president. Known as the “Mexico City policy,” the ban has been reinstated and then reversed by Republican and Democratic presidents since GOP President Ronald Reagan established it in 1984. President Bill Clinton ended the ban in 1993, but President George W. Bush re-instituted it in 2001 as one of his first acts in office.

The policy bans U.S. taxpayer money, usually in the form of U.S. Agency for International Development funds, from going to international family planning groups that either offer abortions or provide information, counseling or referrals about abortion. It is also known as the “global gag rule,” because it prohibits taxpayer funding for groups that lobby to legalize abortion or promote it as a family planning method.

    I read you neo-nazi, fascist rants on a daily basis just to see what the whacky fringe right is thinking. Thanks be to God that your kind are no longer in power. The American people tried your way and it failed. Hopefully they will remember this for a very long time so we can avoid the failed policies of the neo-con right!!!!!

    What the NeoCons are thinking is It’s not nice to KILL BABIES. Now that
    is the anti thesis to what you Liberal whackos think. You cry for murderers to be kept alive and innocent babies to be slaughtered.

    Every time you look lovingly at Obama remember, he’s the product of a teenage, unwed, mother. The perfect candidate for an abortion by Liberals’ standards.

    Hmm, Maybe in some cases abortion is a good idea.

    By the way ExPatriot, you’re not allowed to use the word “GOD” remember? Your bunch took it out of schools and are presently trying to remove it from our currency and all public buildings. Your comrades are going to be mad at you.
    You said “Thanks be to God”. You should have said “Thanks be to Mother Earth”.

  4. Patriot Says:

    My “kind” don’t believe that “God” should be shoved down anybodies throat. Just as our forefathers wanted. Remember that little thing called separation of Church and State?? Or did you sleep through that class too!!!
    Anyway you are truly COOCOO for COCOA PUFFS!! Neo-con nazi whackos why dont ya go back to nazi germany!!

    You ignorance is showing The Constitution says The Government shall not establish a National Religion. It does not forbid the use of the word GOD as you commie Liberals would like to do.
    I must say you are true to your liberal idiocy. When you are losing an
    argument, resort to name calling. That verifies your lack of intelligence.
    Keep it up. I love exposing liberals.

    Since all opposition to liberal propaganda is met with “you stinking NeoCon” – would one of the chosen please “enlighten” us all with THEIR definition of this useless label?

    So that we can move on with a rational, and GOD forbid, maybe even logical debate (which is where all liberal positions are revealed as indefenseable), it would be a truly worthwhile exercise to screen out all the “your mama” name calling and elevate the discussion a bit.

    We thank in advance for your “enlightenment”.
