Abortion Funding is a Major Factor in Lack of USA Budget


Apparently part of the real reason that the USA currently has no budget is because one side wants to keep funding for abortions as USA Today reported today:

The government runs out of money at midnight unless Obama, Speaker of the House John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, can resolve differences that appear to be narrow but intense.

Reid and other Democrats said this morning that the big hold-up is Republican insistence on the inclusion of non-budget items in the final bill, particularly a GOP proposal to de-fund Planned Parenthood because of abortion services.  http://content.usatoday.com/communities/theoval/post/2011/04/obama-congress-stare-at-shutdown-deadline/1

The Wall Street Journal noticed the same issue:

Abortion Returns to Center Stage

Wall Street Journal – Laura Meckler
The policy fight threatening to blow up budget negotiations involves an issue that has been on the sidelines in recent months: abortion.

And the Los Angeles Times reported:

Democrats say that Republicans continue to hold up an agreement because they insist on preserving provisions that would restrict abortion services.

“We are on the one-yard line, but Republicans in the House are making a goal-line stand on the issue of women’s health, which has nothing, nothing to do with the budget,” Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) told MSNBC on Friday.  http://www.latimes.com/news/politics/la-na-0409-budget-negotiations-20110409,0,7296387.story

So let’s see.  The USA is broke, but many feel that it needs to fund abortions with money it does not have.  Essentially, the pro-abortion side says that the amount of money associated with abortions is small, so they should be funded.

I do not believe that this pleases God.

Nor the fact that taking steps to fund abortions internationally was one of the first steps that Barack Obama took upon becoming USA president in 1999 (he also, several weeks later, took a position on funding a type of stem cell research that was essentially pro-abortion).

Abortion is wrong (for details see Abortion, the Bible, and a Woman’s Right to Choose).

The USA is in decline and even its military will NOT be able to defend it well enough a few years from now. The USA will be taken over and defeated, and its people made slaves. Yes, it will get that bad (and actually even worse than that).

To solve its real problems, the USA needs national repentance, not federal funding of, nor any promotion of, abortion. The USA needs repentance right now. The USA does not seem to realize that otherwise its days are numbered. US government policies and practices are part of sealing its doom.
