President Obama, Stop Playing Games and Manipulating the American Public Concerning Taxpayer Funded Abortions

WASHINGTON, ( -- The Christian Defense Coalition calls for candor and transparency by President Obama concerning public monies being used to pay for abortions.

The faith organization called for this openness after White House budget chief Peter Orszag was asked on "Fox News Sunday" if federal funds would be used to pay for abortions in the Obama health care plan.

His response, "I am not prepared to say explicitly that right now. It's obviously a controversial issue. I'm not prepared to rule it out."

It is clear the President is not leveling with the American people because if they knew their tax dollars would be paying for abortions they would never support Mr. Obama's health care initiative.

The Christian Defense Coalition along with other pro- life and human rights organizations is beginning a campaign called "Abortion is Not Health Care" on July 26.

They have already secured permits for the week on Capitol Hill.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,

"President Obama ran on a campaign on transparency and openness in government. He promised his Administration would be different than past Administrations. Sadly, this is just another broken promise by the President.

"When it comes to being open, candid and honest with the American public on taxpayer funded abortions the White House is being manipulative and vague. They know if the American public discovered that President Obama wants public monies to be used to pay for abortions they would never support his health care reform plan.

"During the Presidential campaign, Mr. Obama made it clear he wanted taxpayer funded abortions to be a major part of health care. Now he is trying to downplay these policies.

"We call upon President Obama to stop playing games and manipulating the American public and come clean. Are taxpayer funded abortions a part of your health care initiative? It is a simple and straight forward question that deserves a straight forward answer.

"Please Mr. President step away from the teleprompter and just be honest with us."
