President Hopenchange has ensured that liberal hearts will beat a little faster, secure that even more babies will be aborted across the world.

President Barack Obama has lifted restrictions on US government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, reversing a policy of his Republican predecessor George W. Bush. The Democratic president’s decision was a victory for advocates of abortion rights on an issue that in recent years has become a tit-for-tat policy change each time the White House shifts from one party to the other. When the ban was in place, no US government funding for family planning services could be given to clinics or groups that offer abortion services or counseling in other countries even if the funds for those activities come from non-US government sources. Mr Obama signed an executive order lifting the restrictions yesterday, a White House spokesman said.

The Party of Death will win plaudits from that “international community” as it opens up funding for abortions across the world. Good new for liberals, not such good news for babies. Still, it makes you feel all warm inside knowing this new era has dawned…

  1. President Obama has done the right thing here. Genuinely open and democratic governments grant aid to practically effective organisations and do not tie them to ideological purity demands.

  2. DSD

    You confuse morality with political partisanship. It’s you that needs to look the word up.

  3. "political partisanship"?

    Not promoting the mass murder of children? Call it what you like, but many thousands of children will be systematically killed because of this decision.

    Well done liberals, have a good evening.

  4. PETE

    I am not going to get into a pointless debate about abortion with you , suffice to say that no children will be murdered as a result of this decision.

  5. "You confuse morality with political partisanship. It’s you that needs to look the word up."

    Colm, there are Democrats who are Pro-Life and Republicans who are Pro-Choice. It isn’t about Political Partisanship. It is about Morality.

    "Make that the party of choice?"

    It doesn’t give the baby that much choice and it’s the one that’s about the be butchered.

    Obama’s decision will led to the loss of innocent life and he needs to be condemned on in the same way that we condemned Bush for killing the innocents in Iraq and condemned the Israelis for killing the innocents in Gaza.

    Obama’s decision will lead to aid organisations blacklisted by the Bush administration now being permitted to access Federal funding without having to obey presidential ideological dictats. This decision will not force any one woman on earth to have an abortion but will enable them to have access to a more comprehensive range of advice and help and if a woman in a third world country chooses an abortion she will be given safer and more professional help to secure it.

    There is nothing moral about saying to a desperate and often impoverished woman who in certain circumstances may have genuinely had no choice to avoid getting pregnant "tough, you must have the baby if we are going to give you any hellp. If you choose otherwise you’re on your own".

  7. Colm, the killing of people is never justified because your poor or impovrished. These people should be helped but they should never be helped to kill their child.

    Bush’s decision, like Daddy Bush and Ronny Reagan before him, was to make sure that American taxpayers’ money was not funding the killing of innocent babies. Obama, only a few days into his Presidency, has put a massive stain on his Presidency.

  8. Pete,

    "Not promoting the mass murder of children? "

    Of course not. It’s obvious that nobody thinks so, not the pro-li(f)e, and not you.

    Seamus,

    "Obama’s decision will led to the loss of innocent life "

    Just like most of yours.

  9. Seamus,

    "How is most of my decisions directly causing a loss of life?"

    Well if you don’t care about indirectly causing loss of life, why do you claim to be so concerned about abortion?

    After all, you don’t directly cause that either.

  10. Frank,

    I dont know if you seen or missed my reply to you the other day.

    I have torn spinal ligaments and a resulting prolapsed disc. Im laid out on a karrimat of the living room floor, with laptop propped up on a book.

  11. The Party of Death

    This from a man who gloated over the deaths of children slaughtered by the Zionazis over the past three weeks.

  12. Frank, Barack Obama will, by his actions, directly cause the loss of innocent life. I am a big believer in the Chaos Theory [every small action has the potential to cause a huge effect] so we all, in one way or the other cause indirect loss of life. But we have little to no control over the Chaos of the universe. Barack Obama is directly causing the loss of innocent life and that can never be a good thing.

  13. Seamus,

    "Frank, Barack Obama will, by his actions, directly cause the loss of innocent life."

    Then so do you, especially since you’re making up definitions of ‘directly’ and ‘life’ to suit yourself. You can’t have it both ways.

    DT,

    Yes I saw that…I know some people that happened to, it’s awful…one of them was a cyclist also. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened to me yet as I cycle a hell of a lot and I’m sure I don’t have the right posture etc. Mind you I travel at a very sedate pace and my bikes all have some kind of suspension.

  14. Frank, Barack Obama is legalising the funding of organisations that kill innocent children. He is thus directly causing their deaths. On the otherhand, the American taxpayer, by paying taxes, which are provided to organisations that kill innocent children, are indirectly causing their deaths. That is the difference.

  15. Seamus,

    "Frank, Barack Obama is legalising the funding of organisations that kill innocent children."

    According to you. In reality they are neither children nor innocent.

    "He is thus directly causing their deaths. "

    And this would be false even if they were both.

  16. Colm –

    but will enable them to have access to a more comprehensive range of advice and help

    Come on, you’re not that credulous. These ‘family planning’ organisations exist to promote abortion. People work in the industry to promote abortion..

    For some, it’s big business. There’s alot of money to be mined from government and the gullible in killing children.

    For others, they’ve swallowed the Marxist/Feminist agenda. They just like the subversive nature nature of it.

    But none of them go to work to give out impartial advice.

  17. Pete

    I think you are the one who is credulous, believeing in all these daft ‘Marxist’ conspiracy theories.

  18. Do you deny links between Marxisn and feminism? Are you denying any neo-Marxist influence on politics and government policy in the UK?

  19. DT,

    Yes I saw that…I know some people that happened to, it’s awful…one of them was a cyclist also. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened to me yet as I cycle a hell of a lot and I’m sure I don’t have the right posture etc. Mind you I travel at a very sedate pace and my bikes all have some kind of suspension.

    Its grim alright. Sad thing is I may have to give up my bike (hybrid racing, Specialized Sirrus Pro) and opt for something softer and with a better posture, like a Danish style city bike. That said I hope that rehab and much exercise (back to the pool) will stave off such terrible prospects. I love my Sirrus.

  20. Pete

    There are all sorts of political influences on govt. but what I would certainly deny is the idea that cabinet ministers sit around intentionally plotting how to destroy Western civilisation .

  21. Great decision by Obama. Ireland’s anti-choice position is, i feel, an embarrassment. I hope, somehow, that the Irish Government will act soon on the matter.

    I have looked closely into this abortion issue. One time i was very anti-choice. I now find their arguments ridiculous. This ‘killing babies’ crap is amazing!

  22. I don’t support abortionm to putit mildly but I’ve never understood why that has to be linked to other family planning and contraception support and advice.

  23. DT,

    "Sad thing is I may have to give up my bike (hybrid racing, Specialized Sirrus Pro) and opt for something softer and with a better posture, like a Danish style city bike."

    Well I hope you have a quick recovery and get back on your bike. If you need a gentler bike, I highly recommend the moulton bikes – the new series if you are made of money (about £6k) or the pashley-moulton TSR bikes are similar but a lot cheaper (about £1k) – this is what I have myself. They have full suspension front and rear that works really well, low stepover height, and the handlebar can be adjusted for a fairly upright ride. You can also get versions that separate into two pieces so you can throw them in the back of a car easily.

    There’s also a model called the bridgestone moulton – you can get 1960s versions of the same thing for almost nothing on ebay, and fit them up with modern components to make a very nice bike. Do a bit of research first though, as some of the early frames had a problem with the rear forks cracking.

  24. Thanks for tips. Nice looking bikes. We just started "Bike to Work" scheme at my place, so should be able to take advantage of that. Hopefully it wont come to it though. I do love my Sirrus, and would probably shed a tear if I had to part with it.

  25. "You confuse morality with political partisanship."

    No I don’t. Just because liberals like yourself don’t acknowledge the idea that morality should play a part in government doesn’t make the taking of a moral decision ‘partisan’. Otherwise surely the correct course would be for the US to give no foreign aid whatsoever as anything which does not directly benefit its citizens must surely be a moral decision, yes?

  26. This is, in my opinion, a very moral decision by Obama. Banning abortion is a very immoral position.

    Morality should be at the heart of Government. Liberals believe in a morality based on human reason; in general, they believe that every Government decision should be based on morality.

    conservatives do not place morality as a high priority – individualism is paramount – and only regard people of their kin/race/nation as worthy of any moral consideration. They also discount human reason as a basis for morality, taking their moral positions from religion, again, for purely selfish reasons (their own salvation).

    I believe that religion and conservatism in general severely retards humans’ capacity for morality. Their creed is pure selfishness and individualism, unfortunately, characteristics that, if spread, will likely lead to the detriment of our species.

  27. Lectures on morality and new found bleeding hearts from people who less than two weeks ago couldn’t care less about children killed in Gaza.
