  • I think it is immoral and stupid. I personally don't even believe in abortions and to know that that is where the tax dollars are going kills me. Don't get me wrong I don't judge those who have them I am just saying that it is my personal openion.

  • Federal funds do not actually pay for abortions in other countries. They never have. What the gag rule that was lifted did was allow NGO's (non governmental organizations) to discuss planned pregnancies, educate on sexual health, be able to provide much needed medications to women and children with HIV and other illnesses, and to discuss medical options - including abortions. When you are a woman who was raped by a rebel camp that is over throwing your government and your children were made to watch while afterwards they cut your son's fingers off (all of them) - perhaps you may want to terminate the pregnancy of that criminal. NGO's operate in war torn, very oppressed, very impoverished nations that need our assistance and information. Abortions and other medical procedures are often funded through private funds.

  • cont...Our tax dollars still do not pay for abortion in the U.S. - again that is through private funds. All Obama did was lift the gag order that said that NGO's are to not offer information about sexual health and talk about abortions. TALK being the key word. So in the end, to answer the question, I think it is a victory for women all over the world.

  • Thank you frogdawg.

    I think this question is obviously phrased to be shocking. It's about much more than that, people need to learn to look at the whole picture.
