President Obama (why does saying those two words leave a bad taste in my mouth) will issue an executive order on Thursday reversing the Bush administration policy that bans the use of federal dollars by non-govermental organizations that discuss or provide abortions outside of the United States. (For those Obama fans out there: My hero Ronald Reagan was the 1st President to adopt the policy known as the "Mexico City policy". So, it wasn't Bush's "idea" but it was a good idea and a virtuiluse notion.)
Obama will sign the executive order on the 36th anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court ruling that legalized murdering unborn babies in all 50 states.
The policy, known in governmental circles as the "Mexico City policy," requires any non-governmental organization to agree before receiving U.S. funds that they will "neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations."
The language was announced at the United Nations International Conference on Population in 1984, and was approved by President Reagan and originally drafted by his assistant secretary of state, Alan Keyes. (For those Mindless Obama followers out there Keyes ran unsuccessfully as the GOP nominee against Obama for the U.S. Senate in 2004.)
