Obama Repeals Mexico City Policy

Obama signed an executive order today repealing the so called Mexico City Policy. The policy, first implemented by Regan, removed by Clinton, and then reinstated by G. W. Bush, bans foreign aid groups from promoting abortion if they receive support from the American government.

Pro-Life supporters are understandably going nuts. Essentially, this means that United States tax dollars will go to pay for abortions in foreign countries. All morality issues aside, with hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars going to bail out our economy (or so they say), do we really wanted to be spending more money on foreign abortions right now? I would say no, but no one should be surprised by the move. Obama was very open and honest about what he was going to do if he got elected; for the most part at least. There were a few comments about "above my pay grade", but he was over all consistent that he would repeal this and further sign new legislation to make abortions in the United States easier by removing state restrictions.
