Will Obama Force Americans to Pay for Coerced Abortions?
While conducting their manhunt for Mrs. Tursun, government agents threatened to confiscate her family’s house and property unless she killed her baby. Congressman Chris Smith of New Jersey has publicly appealed to the Chinese Ambassador for mercy, and an end to China’s barbaric practice.
This is the reason that the American government has refused to send tax dollars to support the UN’s Population Fund (UNFPA). As recently as June of this year, the State Department recertified that UNFPA was ineligible for US support because of its cooperation with China’s abusive treatment of women and babies.
Yet President –Elect Obama has indicated he will reinstate funding for UNFPA as part of his extensive efforts to repay a large campaign debt to Planned Parenthood.
Will the American feminist movement stand silently while Obama moves to legitimize the abusive treatment in China?
Frankly, we don’t hold much hope that integrity will drive the Left to stand up to such oppressive practices. We watched as our own chapter of Planned Parenthood fought tooth-and-claw to kill legislation designed to protect Idaho women and girls from coerced abortions. It was a stunning example of the Abortion Movement’s disingenuous claim to support a “woman’s right to choose”.
