Default Obama defunds Bishops' refugee work

http://www.ncregister.com/daily-news...services-work/

The Obama administration, through Health and Human Services, is refusing to renew a grant to the U.S. Bishops' work with refugees and victims of human trafficking -- because the program does not provide contraception and abortion.

Religious freedom? I think not.

Actions for the sake of doing good is very rare anymore; non-existent in the government.

Default All of this is too much for rational senses....

Look at the Susan Komen foundation which is splashed everywhere as a charity for fighting breast cancer. There is strong evidence that this charity donates to Planned Parenthood, the number one provider of abortion which has been shown to have a link to breast cancer. You cannot make this up and, by the way, the SK link to PP is concealed by the media. Wonder why.

US House questions decision to cut bishops' human trafficking funds
http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/ne...ficking-funds/

Congress is now looking into the reasons why the Bishops' group was denied funding, and two groups will less experience, less knowledge and training, and less capability were funded instead.

No one should be suprised about this, as he was tagged as beeing extremely anti-life prior to becoming President and was voted in by an overwhellming number of Catholics. Will be interesting to see if our Bishops concerns about Obama's health care legislation in focring Catholic hospital's and clinics to provide abortion, contracpetion and sterlization is stricken from the health care law. Doesn't look like it.

This is why pretending that abortion is not political is fool's play. Yes, the Right has not exactly distinguished itself, but if you have to choose between Left and Right there is clear difference on at least their attitude and approach to this topic, for those who do not let a so-called social justice agenda lurk beneath the rhetoric.

Eventually, conservative Republicans will gain control of both houses and the Presidency. But will we see any substantial progress on abortion? Most politicians who are prolife would support more restrictions, but most will not support outlawing all direct abortion. And this is true of prolifers in general; there is a weakness within the movement. Only a small minority of prolifers would make all direct abortion illegal. And many do not know the difference between direct and indirect abortion.

So there are two problems: the pro-choice politicians and voters, and the weakness within the pro-life movement itself.

Thank you for posting this, Joan. I won't be voting for Gingrich, for exactly the reason outlined in that article.... plus a huge list of other reasons.

I'm not sure who to vote for this time. Ralph Nader isn't running. Obama is out of the question. I don't know why Jon Huntsman hasn't received more attention, other than the fact that he is a Mormon.
