Hey, that's not what you said...

I am really trying to give Obama a chance, honest. But he has been in office for less than a week and is already going back on something I clearly remember him saying. During a debate, the mod asked both McCain and Obama how they felt about abortion and they both said they were against it.

Now, someone explain to me why you would designate more money to a cause you are against.

A recent quote commenting on the recent move by Obama to reverse the ban on Federal monies going to support abortion initiatives abroad:

"President Obama not long ago told the American people that he would support policies to reduce abortions, but today he is effectively guaranteeing more abortions by funding groups that promote abortion as a method of population control," said Douglas Johnson, legislative director of the National Right to Life Committee.

It upsets me that my tax dollars are supporting such a highly volatile issue without my consent. I pray that this decision will be thwarted or soon reversed.


Between this and the move to close Gitmo....he's not off to a great start.

Great post and I'm worried too. I guess all we can do is pray that things change for the better in our entire nation/economy.

Hugs and prayers,
Amanda

Abortion breaks my heart. I agree 100% with the 2 previous comments. I sometimes forget to pray for him and he needs it badly. God is bigger than anything so have faith that He can change people :)
