Despite the obvious unethical behavior of groups like Planned Parenthood that coach 13-year-old girls on how to hide the sex crimes committed against them, pro-abortion groups have issued their instructions to Barack Obama. Given that the Obama transition team has posted the memo on-line, it looks as though they are going to follow these orders to the letter.
Steven Ertelt of Life Site News has this:
|A coalition of dozens of pro-abortion groups have issued a 55-page memorandum and the web site for the Barack Obama transition team posted it online. The new memo from groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL gives Obama his marching orders for the next four years.
What do the orders include? Douglas Johnson of National Right to Life notes the following:
| “The pro-abortion lobby has presented its radical abortion agenda to the Obama Administration in a single tidy 55-page package — even including the exact language of presidential orders that these lobbying groups want Obama to sign,” he explained.
“The groups instruct the Obama Administration that it should propose repeal of the Hyde Amendment, and include an abortion mandate in a ‘health care reform’ bill, within the first 100 days. Longer-term goals include the so-called ‘Freedom of Choice Act’ and packing the federal courts with judges who are pre-committed to vote with the pro-abortion side,” Johnson added.
The memo calls for Obama to strike all limits on taxpayer funded abortion in various circumstances.
“The President’s budget should strike language restricting abortion funding for (i) Medicaid-eligible women and Medicare beneficiaries (Hyde amendment); (ii) federal employees and their dependents (FEHB program); (iii) residents of the District of Columbia; (iv) Peace Corps volunteers; (v) Native-American women; and (vi) women in federal prisons,” it says.
In other words, the pro-abortion lobby wants to use abortion as a means of birth control rather than teaching responsibility on the part of potential parents. That even includes defunding abstinence training programs.
|The memo urges Obama to take other actions like putting together a federal health care plan that covers abortion, reduce abstinence education funding, and pull down information from federal web sites that talks about the medical and mental health problems women suffer after abortions.
It also calls on Obama to only appoint pro-abortion judges to the Supreme Court and lower federal courts.
The memo includes the actual text Obama should use for Executive Orders and Presidential Memorandums, legislative language changes, new regulatory initiatives, and a list of judicial vacancies.
Johnson says pro-life advocates have a clear list of what they will need to oppose immediately after Obama takes office and he urges all pro-life advocates to get involved immediately to stop these proposals.
The pro-abortion lobby also called for more funding for Planned Parenthood despite the unethical and illegal behavior that Planned Parenthood routinely engages in and the fact that Planned Parnethood has turned into a franchise abortion mill with an annual income of over $1 billion. I’m pretty sure that money could be better used in medical research to cure diseases rather than killing innocent, unborn children.

But do not expect them to be the least bit respectful of your pro-life views.
