See What Exactly is the Mexico City Policy? and 1400 Flowers to be Placed in Front of White House Today in Honor of 1400 African American Children Slain Each Day Through Abortion. By the way none of this will be reported on in Big Media I just bet.
Obama has no respect for pro-lifers nor the unborn. I am disappointed and I expected this. Why should I as an American Tax Payer have to aide in the killing of the unborn? If Obama really respected the views of others then he surely would not have allowed money from Americans who are divided on this issue go to fund abortion advocate groups. He should have remained neutral on this issue by allowing who ever was willing to abort to pay for the abortion not forcing those of us who are not willing to do so.
Secondly, if helping a woman decide to make an informed choice is so heinous to those on the left the least Obama could do since he is funding those on one side is also allow equal funding of teen pregnancy centers and ultra-sound access to woman going thru the process of deciding. In other words fund for a more balanced and informed decision.
Concerns from a conservative perpsective after Obama's first week in office...
(Story Continues below)
"After granting a 24-hour stay on the execution of the unborn, President Obama delivered today on his promise of taxpayer-funded promotion of abortion. This afternoon, the new administration inked the order overturning the "Mexico City policy" and unleashing millions of federal dollars to international abortion groups. Of course, it was no accident that the new president postponed the act until the last possible minute on Friday, knowing the repeal would be buried in the weekend headlines. Issuing it now means that even the presidential blackberry will get more media coverage than his international abortion bailout. The end of "Mexico City" is nothing less than a tragedy for the world's poor."

The Times Ignores March for Life for Second Year Running
A few dozen left-wing activists protesting Rev. Rick Warren were worthy of a Times story plus a large photo. But when tens of thousands marched in D.C. at the pro-life March for Life, they were completely ignored by the Times for the second year in a row.

A few dozen left-wing activists protesting Rev. Rick Warren outside Martin Luther King's home church in Atlanta were worthy of both a story and a large photo in Tuesday's paper. Yet when tens of thousands marched in D.C. for a conservative cause -- the March for Life, on the 35th anniversary of Roe v. Wade -- they were completely ignored by the Times. This marks the second year in a row the Times has totally ignored the march in its print edition.
President Barack Obama reaffirmed his commitment to protecting abortion rights on Wednesday, the 35th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision, Roe v. Wade, and said that it “stands for a broader principle: that government should not intrude on our most private family matters.”
The march wasn't mentioned until paragraph five.
Mr. Obama’s position has anti-abortion groups worried. The president of National Right to Life, Wanda Franz, predicted that the president would pursue a “radical agenda” and on his watch, the number of abortions would “increase dramatically.”
And on the National Mall, where millions gathered on Tuesday to witness Mr. Obama’s inauguration, tens of thousands held a rally today marking the Roe v. Wade anniversary, followed by a march to the steps of the Supreme Court."
