The Naivete of the American Public

When the Kenyan-American president was running for office as the most liberal of all senators in the entire US Senate and as someone who had never once voted to protect human life at any stage of prenancy, was there any doubt among clear-thinking individuals that federally-funded, abortion on demand would be far behind? Kudos to House Minority Leader John Boehner for calling out Chairman Obama on this.....
"When most Americans talk about the need for health-care reform, they’re usually talking about the need to address rising health-care costs; they aren’t talking about the need for taxpayers to subsidize abortion. In fact, a November 2008 Zogby poll revealed 71 percent of Americans oppose government-funded abortion.
It seems Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill don’t share this perspective, however. With the unequivocal support of President Obama, they’ve written a health-care bill that won’t lower health-care costs for American families, but will require them to subsidize abortion with their hard-earned tax dollars."
The article makes for an interesting read as does today's article from Jill Stanek who questions why there is sudden silence on the behalf of Planned Parenthood and NARAL as the health care issue is debated...
"The other side does nothing without a plan. The plan is to stop talking about abortion 1) in hopes the controversy will die down, and 2) to regroup and reframe the argument..... on Aug. 12, an ad popped up on Craigslist by Planned Parenthoods in Chicago and New York recruiting workers to push abortion in health care: "Right now anti-choice forces are trying to hijack health-care reform. They want to exclude reproductive health care. And, they want to cut out trusted community health-care providers. … We need your help to build up public support for this campaign! Full-time and management positions available NOW. … Earn $335-$535." So pro-aborts are still pursuing the goal of taxpayer-funded abortions, just stealthy. "
None of this paints a picture of an administration that would like to see instances of abortion to be "rare".
