Welcome to Casualty Friday
April 22, 2009
Have you noticed that the Obama Administration has been rolling out their pro-abortion policies on Friday afternoons? It seems like Casualty Friday is now the ongoing strategy of the Obama Administration.
Just this past Friday afternoon the Obama Administration unveiled new guidelines from the National Institute for Health (NIH) that allow your tax dollars to fund human embryonic stem cell research. And this is just the latest anti-Life policy that the Obama Administration has rolled out on a Friday afternoon- when they think no one is looking.
Just take a look at these three major anti-life initiatives that were all announced on Friday afternoons this year:
1) Mexico City Policy Repeal- On Friday, January 23rd, President Obama signed an order overturning the pro-life Mexico City Policy. This decision was announced only two days after thousands converged on Washington for the annual March for Life. Obama's reversal of the pro-life Mexico City Policy allows millions of your taxpayer dollars to fund international abortion providers like Planned Parenthood.
2) Rollback of Conscience Protections for Medical Professionals- On Friday, February 27th, the Obama Administration announced its intention to undo important conscience protection rules for doctors, nurses and other medical providers. Now health care workers who choose to follow their conscience and refuse to participate in abortion procedures will have little recourse if they are discriminated against by their employer.
3) Embryonic Stem Cell Executive Order- On Friday March 6th, President Obama announced he was going to sign an executive order allowing for taxpayer funding for human embryonic stem cell research, despite the fact that this type of research has shown no signs of success. He also completely reversed previous policy directing federal dollars toward ethical stem cell research that does not destroy innocent human life.
Why have all these things been announced on Friday afternoons? Because the Obama Administration is hoping no one will really pay attention as people head out to start their weekends.
The Susan B. Anthony List is working hard to expose Obama's radical agenda, using every tool available to us - radio, internet, and mail. It is clear that President Obama has abandoned his campaign pledge to find "common ground" on abortion policy, and the American people deserve to know the truth.
Please support our efforts to expose President Obama's radical agenda! We will need every dollar to continue our fight to protect innocent human life. Even a small gift will help us to make a big difference.
Thank you for joining us in this important effort to expose the truth.
