Christian Defense Coalition Condemns Obama Administration's Push for Abortion Rights in Kenya Constitution
July 8, 2010
WASHINGTON, (christiansunite.com) -- The Obama administration is offering incentives to Kenya to approve a controversial new constitution that would legalize abortion for the first time, promising that passage will "allow money to flow" into the nation's coffers, including U.S. aid.
Prior to the election of President Obama, the Washington DC based Christian Defense Coalition warned, "If elected, Barak Obama would become 'The Abortion President,' even forcing Catholics and Evangelicals to pay for abortions."
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,
"When then Senator Obama was campaigning for President, the Christian Defense Coalition launched a national campaign called 'Barak Obama the Abortion President.' In that campaign, we said if elected Mr. Obama would be the most pro-abortion President in American history.
"Sadly, this has turned out to be the case. President Obama lifted the Mexico City Policy which had prevented federal dollars from being used to fund and refer abortions in foreign countries. President Obama's national health care plan allows tax dollars to be used to provide and subsidize abortions. And now, his administration has linked aid and support to Kenya in return for them allowing abortion in their Constitution.
"This is a gross trampling of human rights by the President and it should now be clear to every person of faith and good will that Mr. Obama has no regard for the dignity of human life and no commitment to social justice. To link economic aid with abortion is a betrayal of all the America stands for and once again shows the extreme and radical pro-abortion policies of this administration."
