Are your tax dollars paying for abortions?
When President Bush reinstated the Mexico City Policy in 2001, there was a large outcry among pro-abortion groups about leaving international organizations penniless. The policy required that in order to receive US funding, international health organizations could not promote or perform abortions. These organizations do not need US federal dollars; most of them are in a better financial situation than our current government. Find out now where your money is going!
Words of Encouragement
Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) is an ardent defender of Life in the United States Senate. Listen to his words of encouragement to the whole pro-life movement and his moving story about his adopted granddaughter from Africa.

Now with a pro-abortion President and Congress, the other side is eager to wipe this crucial pro-life law from the books. Unless we stop them!
