Americans Disagree with Obama's Abortion Action

Gallup reports:

"....Obama's decision to reverse the prohibition on funding for overseas family-planning providers may be the least popular thing he has done so far. This was an executive order that forbade federal government money from going to overseas family-planning groups that provide abortions or offer abortion counseling. Fifty-eight percent of Americans disapprove of Obama's decision to lift this ban, while only 35% approve of it. The ban on federal funds to these groups was put in place by Ronald Reagan, but lifted by Bill Clinton. George W. Bush re-instituted the ban after taking office in 2001, but Obama has once again lifted it.

The abortion and Guantanamo Bay prison decisions are especially unpopular among Republicans; only 8% approve of the former and 11% of the latter. But these are also the least popular decisions among independents and Democrats as well, though a majority of Democrats still approve of both.

It's good the American people oppose this policy, but will that matter? It's critical psychologically for the Democrats to support abortion all the time. To admit anything is wrong with abortion is to admit that the unborn child is a person. Once you've acquiesced in 49 million+ abortions, you'll do anything to prevent that possibility from enetring your conciousness.

Still, it's possible, so I'm sending the following letter. Join me!

President Barack Obama
The White House

Dear Mr. President,

A Gallup Poll of January 28-February 1, 2009 showed that 58% of Americans disagreed with your reversal of the prohibition on taxpayer funding for overseas family planning providers that provide abortion or abortion counseling.

Mr. President, in light of this, I strongly ask and encourage you, in the name national unity, to reinstitute this ban.
