President And The Speaker of the House Seem Conflicted Over Abortion

Why does the President and the Speaker of the House both say they want to reduce the number of abortions?

The Speaker has said she thinks giving hundreds of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood and others like them will be good for the economy. She has also said she wants to see the number of abortions reduced.

The new White House website states that the President's statement of purpose is to, "reduce" abortions by "expanding access to affordable contraception, accurate health information and preventative services."

They have told us that Roe v. Wade is about "reproductive freedom" and a "woman's right to choose."

If it really is about freedom and choice and these rights trump life itself, why would they spend any taxpayer funds to try to "reduce" abortion?

If it's okay to abort one baby, why is 100 a problem, or 1000 or 48,000,000?

Star Parker, a nationally syndicated columnist, has written an excellent column asking that question.

She says, "President Obama appealed in his inauguration address for, 'A new era of responsibility,' bemoaned, 'greed and irresponsibility' and 'failure to make hard decisions' ."

Parker asks, "Mr. President, if you condone a culture that has no sense of awe and responsibility toward the greatest miracle of all miracles and mysteries---life itself---how can you expect responsibility elsewhere?"

I strongly recommend you read her column.

The crises we face is one of principle and values more than dollars and cents.
