Salon.com Politics | Bush to impose new abortion limits — JACKASS! Bush has decided to try to reissue the global gag rule in a form that cannot be overridden by the will of Congress (i.e., the people’s representatives). I can only hope that people remember this thuggish, Napoleonic streak of Bush’s come 2004…
P.S. Why does Bush continue to repeat that
It is my conviction that taxpayer funds should not be used to pay for abortions or advocate or actively promote abortion either here or abroad? It’s already against the law for this to happen. What Bush is complaining about is taxpayer funds which are earmarked not to go towards abortion, going to family planning groups which also do provide abortion advocacy or abortion services. If Bush is going to say that that constitutes U.S. money going to abortion, then why the hell don’t
faith-based initiatives constitute giving taxpayer money for evangelism? (Answer: they don’t, and neither does giving taxpayer money to family planning services constitute using taxpayer money for abortions). Bush is either (a) stupid, (b) lying, or (c) crazy. The sad thing is I really can’t rule out any of them.
