Thankfully, the pork-filled omnibus was stopped, but guess what the libs had included in it? More plans for taxpayers to fund abortion. The Left just cannot be content with women paying for their own abortions. They expect these acts of murder funded by the public.
From Life News:
Omnibus Bill Funds DC Abortions, Planned Parenthood
"The omnibus appropriations bill the Senate will consider this weekend or early next week to fund the federal government contains a laundry list of goodies for pro-abortion groups.
The FY11 omnibus undermines the prohibition on abortion funding in the District of Columbia, which Democrats overturned last year to fund abortions in Washington for the first time in many years. Because Congress approves all D.C. appropriations it can determine whether tax dollars can pay for abortions or not.
The legislation allocates $327 million for the Title X Family Planning Program which provides funding to groups like Planned Parenthood. This is a $10 million increase over last year and a $44 million increase over the last four years.
The omnibus also allocates $710 million for international family planning/reproductive health which provides funding to organizations that promote and perform abortion overseas. This is a $62 million increase over last year and a $270 million increase over the last four years."
I don't remember hearing about these little gifts, do you?
The soon-to-be Republican controlled House will be presenting President Obama with a dilemma. Read from Human Events:
Will Obama Sign Stupak-Pitts?
by John Gizzi
"One week after the incoming chairman of a key congressional subcommittee told HUMAN EVENTS he plans to introduce the Stupak-Pitts amendment as separate legislation, the White House won’t say whether the president will sign the measure to ban coverage of abortions by tax dollars in the federal health care package — even though Mr. Obama said in March that an executive order he signed would achieve the same goal as Stupak-Pitts (which was eliminated in passage of the final version of the health care bill).
At the White House press briefing yesterday morning, I cited our interview with Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.), incoming chairman of the health subcommittee of the House Energy Committee, in which he said he would offer Stupak-Pitts as a separate bill next year and predicted passage in the new Congress. Would the president sign the bill that Pitts is talking about if it comes to his desk, I asked.
'I’m not familiar with that statement [by Pitts],' Press Secretary Robert Gibbs replied, promising to have 'someone from our health team get back to you.'
Pitts has been talking about offering the legislation he co-sponsored as a separate bill since the health care measure was passed in March of this year. The intentions to offer it have taken on new meaning and attention since Republicans will control the House, Pitts will chair the health subcommittee, and incoming House Energy Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) says 'he will move on [Stupak-Pitts] quickly,' Pitts told us.
'The president said his executive order does the same thing that the legislation would have done,' a Pitts spokesman told us after Gibbs’ remark, 'All this does is codify what he said he would do.'"
Now that the Republicans will be taking over the House, it's time to defund the baby-killing organization, Planned Parenthood.
From Red State:
Defunding Planned Parenthood
"Today, abortion giant Planned Parenthood released its 2008-2009 Annual Report.
Behind the colorful graphics and happy faces is a stark number: Planned Parenthood received $363 million in government grants and contracts from 2008 to 2009 alone, all at the expense of the U.S. Taxpayer and the lives of unborn babies.
How many lives are we talking? 324,008 unborn human lives destroyed in one year. How many adoption referrals? 9,433.
And that number of lives ended and women wounded will continue to rise as the amount of federal funding they receive continues to rise."
