Psalm 139:13-14
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.

I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.

Before the election, there was much debate in Christian circles of who to vote for and what system of ethics should be used in coming to a conclusion.  Abortion was a hot button topic but not as hot as normal.  It was different this time as many true followers of Jesus and many psuedo-Christians moved the abortion issue down on the priority list.

I really believe that most bought into the illusion that the issue was a non-issue and that there wouldn’t be any real ramifications…I mean Roe v. Wade was not overturned in the last 8 years by the Supreme Court or a constitutional amendment…so why should it be a deciding factor?  What I believe many failed to realize is that the issue is far more reaching then Roe v. Wade.  It has to do with Executive Orders and smaller laws and probably a bit down the road FOCA.

Today, the day after the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, Obama has started down the road he has consistently said he would take.  On his third day of office and his second day of business he used his executive power to overturn the “Mexico City Policy”.  When the policy was in tact federal tax funds only went to organizations that “neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations.”

Our federal tax dollars will now be given to organizations that promote and perform abortions in countries around the world.  My understanding is that tax dollars still cannot be used for the actual procedure, but it can be used to support the overall operation of the organization and promotion of abortion; thereby, freeing up other money the organization has to actually perform the procedure  In short, money that was given to organizations to save lives, prevent and cure disease, and feed the hungry will be diverted to other organizations who will promote abortion and end life.

Please know that my heart has not changed in my love for both the unborn children and women who have had abortions.  If you have read my previous posts on the subject or talked to me personally I think you know my heart.  It is always painful to write about this subject, and I don’t write this post as an I told you so.  It is simply a reminder that our first ethical responsibility in loving other humans is the protection of life itself.  If your ethical priorities have been out of order I beg you to put them where they belong.  In this matter, on this day, justice was not done, and the innocent were not protected.  It is a sad day for the world and “the cloud of witnesses” to its sadness is great indeed.

I am still praying for President Obama, and I hope that you will continue to as well.  I Timothy 2.
