In less than five minutes after Barack Obama took over as the next president, the White House web site changed from pro-life to pro-abortion. The previous site, which touted the pro-life proclamation President Bush signed late last week, now includes Obama’s agenda for women, which calls for promoting abortion.
Gone is any mention of the Sanctity of Human Life Day or the speeches or actions of President Bush’s that promoted human life. Now, in the same color scheme and format as the Bush site, there is a celebration of Obama’s agenda.
According to a web site search of WhiteHouse.gov, the only page on the official governmental site to mention abortion is a page detailing what Obama will do to promote the interests of women.
Though abortions cause women a myriad of medical and mental health problems, Obama states his clear intent, in a section entitled “reproductive choice,” to make abortions even more available.
“President Obama understands that abortion is a divisive issue, and respects those who disagree with him. However, he has been a consistent champion of reproductive choice and will make preserving women’s rights under Roe v. Wade a priority in his Adminstration [sic],” the Obama White House site says.
“He opposes any constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court’s decision in that case,” it adds.
The White House page also touts Obama’s backing for the Prevention First Act.
Billed as a measure to provide more funding for family planning and contraception, pro-life advocates oppose it because it sends millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business that does 25 percent of the abortions across the country.
The Obama White House site also promotes the new president’s view that Americans should be forced to pay for embryonic stem cell research, which involves the destruction of human life and has never helped a single patient.
The web site comes across as a false claim that government has not supported stem cell research in general, even though President Bush spent hundreds of millions of dollars promoting the use of adult stem cells — the only kind to help any patients. (Read more)
