Taxpayer-funded abortion will likely increase through president-elect Barack Obama’s pledged support of the United Nations Population Fund.
President-elect Obama is expected to issue a stack of executive orders on his first day in office. Steven Mosher of the Population Research Institute (PRI) defines, in his own words, what that means. “If character is what you do when no one is looking, executive orders are what a president does without the consent of the public or even needing the consent of the Congress,” he says. “He can do these things on his own authority.”
Mosher believes one of the first orders will most certainly designate American tax dollars for the United Nations Population Fund, which PRI investigated and proved was being misused in China seven years ago. PRI’s 2001 report called “UNFPA, China, and Coercive Family Planning” discusses research conducted in Sihui County.
