Why fund the "Mexico City Policy"?
Yesterday, President Barack Obama signed an executive order overturning the “Mexico City Policy” which prohibited Federal money (ie tax payers money) from being used to fund international groups the provide or promote abortions. Let’s ignore for a moment all of our personal thoughts about abortion. If we are truly in the “worst economy since the Great Depression” as President Obama likes to say, then why on earth are we going to want to spend anymore money on international aid then we currently are?
Speaking President Obama, I really like this Prickly City comic from yesterday.
