Biden revives international abortion funding

A new Marist poll of roughly 1,200 U.S. adults found that more that 77 percent oppose using tax dollars to support abortions overseas. But President Joe Biden rescinded the Mexico City policy, which barred the government from giving taxpayer money to organizations that perform or promote the procedure internationally. The policy began under President Ronald Reagan. Democrats Bill Clinton and Barack Obama revoked the rule, and Republicans George W. Bush and Donald Trump reinstated it.

Any other new orders? Biden on Thursday also said he was “restoring the Affordable Care Act and restoring Medicaid to the way it was before Trump became president.” He is directing federal agencies to review existing policies that may make it tougher to receive Medicaid, including work requirements, and reopening the signup window for Obamacare.

Well, at least he's a nice guy.


Biden has no conscience, but he does have political friends that need payback; that is what every executive order is all about.  I do pray for him and his administration that they will be saved.  It would be so awful to be this man- enslaved to such abominable false gods like Molech.

Abortion is wrong. It's a horrific evil that America is certainly being judged for. It is reprehensible that not only are we committing this sin ourselves, but we are exporting it. I grieve for the children being lost and the mothers and fathers who are making this decision. "Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do."

God hates abortion too.

"These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren." (Proverbs 6:16-19) 

Like Bob Pierce said, "Let my heart be broken with what breaks the heart of God."
