Obama's budget is full of abortion funding

From Marjorie at the Susan B Anthony List:
Obama just doesn't get it.

Poll after poll (Marist Poll shows that 56% of Americans consider abortion "morally wrong" with people ages 18-30 at a 58% disapproval rate) shows that Americans are increasingly pro-life, and even more Americans don't want their tax dollars spent on funding abortion.

Yet, Obama's proposed 2011 budget doesn't reflect this sentiment. In fact, it does just the opposite, and actually increases taxpayer funding for abortion on-demand both domestically and around the globe.
Under Obama's proposed budget, he asks that American tax dollars are used to:

--Fund the Title X "Family Planning Program" which sends money directly to Planned Parenthood. Obama asked that Title X funding be increased by $10 million this year, which would bring total funding to a staggering $327 million
--Fund Abortions in the District of Columbia because of the loss of the Dornan Amendment

--Fund the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) which promotes Abortion worldwide and works with Population Control officials in China who have promoted Forced Abortions and Sterilizations to enforce their oppressive One-Child Family Planning Policy

--Fund People or Groups that engage in Abortion Litigation under the Legal Services Corporation

Because the truth is, the battle to defend human life in the pending health care bill isn't over, either.
During the pregame Superbowl show, President Obama stated to Katie Couric: "I want to come back [after the Presidents' Day congressional recess] and have a large meeting -- Republicans and Democrats -- to go through, systematically, all the best ideas that are out there, and move it forward."

 We have to keep up the pressure on the White House and Congress to ensure that abortion is not included in health care reform. The abortion lobby is so entrenched within the Democratic Party there is no doubt that they'll do everything they can to get their way.

In fact, the National Organization of Women (NOW) recently urged President Obama to "... hold tight to the values and ideals that he trumpeted" which includes "passing health care reform that recognizes every woman's fundamental right to have access to the full range of health care services, including abortion..."

And President Obama's political arm, Organizing for America, wrote to its members: "It's clear that we're in the fight of our lives to pass real reform" and "we're fighting for our families and our country -- and we don't quit."

Keep the church out of our politics! There is not funding for "on demand abortions." You and the GOP party just keep spreading those lies.

Judi, without the Church entering politics, we would not have had an abolitionist or civil rights movement, or a labor movement for that matter.
Abortion is very much the center of all Obama does, he has to pay back his NARAL friends.
