Our new president has signed some executive orders in these first days after his inauguration. Here is, from my point of view, the very saddest for our nation: President Obama has reversed our abortion-funding policy for international family planning clinics. One of the reasons?

It will “increase economic opportunities for women and girls.”
Please tell me that we’re not promoting the killing of babies so women can make more money. I understand that unwanted pregnancies contribute to poverty. However, it’s tragic that our answer is to kill defenseless, innocent children.

President Obama is ok, as well, with partial-birth abortions—you know, the procedure where the “doctor” shoves a pair of scissors into the base of the baby’s skull, in order to terminate its existence.

This isn’t all. Now that Obama is in office, human stem cell research is back into play.

From the Drudge Report:
“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has cleared the way for the first trial to see if human embryonic stem cells can treat people safely, a company involved in the controversial research on Friday.

Geron Corp, a California biotechnology company, said it plans a clinical trial to try to use the stem cells to regrow nerve tissue in patients with crushed, but not severed, spinal cords.”

And then, a couple of paragraphs later:
“Shares of Geron rose more than 53 percent to $8 in mid-morning trading on Nasdaq after touching $8.38.”

Please tell me that this isn’t just about money.

These are tragic days for this nation. I know these orders all make perfect sense to our president and to the people who support him. Unfortunately, they don’t have any understanding of the consequences of what they’re doing.

Life in the United States has just become much cheaper and much crueler.
