For the Catholics who voted for Obama to end the war and revive the economy on the backs of higher income taxpayers, you must now deal with Obama's support of abortion - and almost unfettered abortion at that. Video below. Leading up to the November election, we watched as Obama supporters whipped themselves into a frenzy of adoration: believing every word he said, embracing every word NOT uttered, ignoring everything we knew we didn't know and feared, and expecting absolutely nothing from the media. The world wanted Barack Obama to be President of the World and he was willing. Two days after Obama's second swearing-in, he struck down the eight-year-restriction banning American funds facilitating abortions overseas. To be clear: American taxpayer monies can now be distributed to overseas family planning organizations to be used for, among other things, abortions. We have moved to that dark place where pro-abortionist Americans see abortion as a Humans Rights issue...and not in favor of the child, but as abolishing "deaths and injuries of countless women and girls." The Mexico City Policy, sometimes known as the Global Gag Rule, is gone. President Ronald Reagan set the Policy (the ban) into motion in 1984. Bill Clinton overturned it. George W. Bush restored it in 1993. A senior Vatican official, Archbishop Rino Fisichella, says that the "road to disappointment [with Obama et al] will be short. The Archbishop put it this way:
What is important is to know how to listen... without locking oneself into ideological visions with the arrogance of a person who, having the power, thinks they can decide on life and death...Let's face it, in this case Barack Obama does have the power to snuff out life all over the glove. What can be more important than granting a President the power over life or death? Fisichella laments:
I do not believe that those who voted for him took into consideration ethical themes, which were astutely left aside during the election debate. The majority of the American population does not take the same position as the president and his teamGallup polled voting Catholic Hispanics in America just prior to the November election. By 65 percent, Hispanic Catholics chose Obama. The Vatican's message is not getting through, it seems. Is it possible that a majority of Catholics no longer believe that abortion is wrong?
