"The Democratically led Congress has the lowest approval rating numbers ever recorded - even during the page scandals of the 1980's and last year. Last night the Democrats in the House did all they could to drive those numbers lower by using the State, Foreign Operations Appropriations bill to further export a pro-abortion agenda. First off, pro-condom forces in the House voted down an amendment sponsored by champion of the family Representative Joe Pitts (R-Penn.) that would have protected designated funds for abstinence programs in combating AIDS worldwide. This was followed by a series of votes that ultimately gutted the Mexico City Policy, the policy that bars any assistance to organizations abroad that perform or promote abortion as a method of family planning. Reps. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) valiantly offered up an amendment that would have stopped the taxpayer funding of abortions; however, Democratic leadership and Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) decided instead to push for making the United States a merchant of abortion. America is known for exporting many things, chief among them freedom and democracy. Now, if the Democratic leadership has its way, America will also be known as an exporter of death. We applaud the Republicans and Democrats who voted against this pro-abortion bill and we look forward to the President's well deserved veto. "

There are two aspects of American Culture for which we are famous. First is Hollywood, and the sexually explicit movies, TV shows and music we export, and second, our foreign aid presence, which you can see here is now run by an aggressively pro-death agenda. The Mexico City Policy was the first action President George W. Bush took after his inauguration in 2000, I remember as he announced it to the crowd on the March for Life; we were ecstatic to no longer be funding abortions abroad with our tax money.
Next time the Dems say we should spend more domestically, remember they had billions to spare when it came to exporting the Culture of Death. Muslims take a particularly dim view of this, since much of this is foisted upon their countries. The first medical care to arrive in Afghanistan after the defeat of the Taliban were abortion facilities, courtesy of tax-funded abortion business, Planned Parenthood. The Islamofacists consider us a Christian nation, and then see this as an example of what Christ inanity does for our moral standards. Shame on us, for voting for these people who have defamed the name of our great nation in the face of the world!
