It's official - President Obama late today signed an Executive Order repealing whats been called the Mexico City Policy which correctly barred the use of federal funds by non-governmental agencies abroad for abortion counseling and abortions, sets a disappointing tone that will mean more abortions and less protection for the unborn.

President Obama wasted no time in letting the nation know what many pro-life Americans suspected President Obama is committed to promoting pro-abortion policies.  With the stroke of a pen, the President cleared the way for even more tax dollars to be used to promote abortion.  His decision to delay the action one day to avoid it coinciding with the 36th anniversary of the landmark decision legalizing abortion, Roe v. Wade is still a slap in the face to the millions of Americans who find abortion repugnant and the taking of innocent human life.  Sadly, todays action by President Obama sets a disappointing tone that is likely to result in more abortions and less protection for the unborn.

As you know the ACLJ has produced a legal memo outling the need for the Mexico City Policy and why it should not have been repealed.  You can view that memo here.

What's next for President Obama?  Signing into law the Freedom of Choice Act?  Based on today's action, you've got to believe that President Obama is committed to enacting legislation like the Freedom of Choice Act, a measure that would further strip away protections for the unborn by repealing informed consent and parental notification laws - even repealing the ban on partial-birth abortion, an absolutely horrendous practice.
 
The fact is that President Obama has showed his hand early and is on his way to becoming a very pro-abortion president.  With the Mexico City Policy repealed, Americans can count on even more of their tax dollars being used to promote abortion. 

And, that is a tragedy.
