Barack Obama Postpones Decision to Send Tax Dollars Overseas for Abortion

I am conflicted by this. On one hand, the longer it is before the Mexico City Policy is overturned, the more lives are saved. But let's face it, postponing the reversal of the Mexico City Policy is nothing but a cheap political trick.

Washington, DC ( -- In a move to downplay his pro-abortion agenda, President Barack Obama has decided to wait a little longer to reverse a Bush policy preventing taxpayer funding of abortions overseas. The Mexico City Policy prevents sending public funds to groups that perform or promote abortions in other countries.

The new president could either issue an order tomorrow or in the near future to reverse the policy or allow Congress to do it.

Obama was expected to overturn the pro-life policy on his first or second full days in office and to possibly do so today, on the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.

However, a CBN News report indicates Obama will not overturn the policy on a day that pro-life advocates mourn the Supreme Court allowing virtually unlimited abortions.
