Hey, Father Jenkins!
Hey, Notre Dame!
What’s that you were saying about Obama bringing the number of abortions down?
Today, two days after he was honored at Notre Dame, LifeNews reported that Barack Obama’s budget calls for taxpayer-funded abortions in the nation’s capital.
President Barack Obama’s new federal budget calls for taxpayer funded abortions in the nation’s capital. Although Obama has promised Americans he wants to reduce the number of abortions, one pro-life group says he is violating that promise by calling for taxpayer-financed abortions in the District of Columbia.
The budget Obama submitted to Congress urges the House and Senate to repeal a law sometimes called the Dornan amendment that has prevented tax-funded abortion in the District of Columbia for many years.
Congress, as authorized by the U.S. Constitution, holds complete legislative authority over the District of Columbia and, therefore, determines whether taxpayer dollars will be used to fund abortions for poor women there.
