Boehner calling Obama's bluff on abortion

Despite a presidential executive order, abortion will be part of healthcare reform -- at least according to a non-response from an
inquiry sent to President Obama.

vspace="3" width="121" height="125" hspace="3"">The executive order
--
signed by President Barack Obama in the days leading up to congressional
passage of his healthcare reform package -- banned federal funds from
being used for abortion. At the time, pro-lifers and other conservatives
dismissed the order as basically meaningless, pointing out a
presidential order could not overrule federal law.

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) recently sent a letter to
the White House asking for a status report on the effectiveness of the
order. Tom McCluskey of the Council Action"">Family Research
Council Action
says Boehner is, in effect, calling the president's
bluff.

"I think what House Leader John Boehner...was trying to do was push
away the curtain of the façade President Obama tried to push for this
executive order on abortion and show that he wasn't really serious about
it," McCluskey elaborates.

Tom McClusky (FRC)Boehner did not receive a response to
his letter. McCluskey believes the administration wants to ignore the
issue.

"To the president," he says, "this is a non-issue. His abortion allies
got exactly what they wanted: taxpayer funding and public subsidies of
abortion in the healthcare bill. He doesn't need to worry about
pro-lifers like Bart Stupak or John Boehner or anybody else." Stupak, a
professed "pro-lifer" from Michigan, was instrumental in rallying other
Democrats to pass the healthcare reform bill after the executive order
was signed.

The FRC Action spokesman says the fact the executive order banned the
funds means nothing -- and that what does matter is elections
and that people should remember the false executive order when they go
to the polls in November.


GOD Bless,
