GAO: Obama administration illegally promoted abortion in Kenya

Catholic World News - November 17, 2011

A probe by the General Accounting Office has found that the Obama administration violated federal law in granting funds to an abortion-promoting organization in Kenya.

“The Obama Administration basically hired surrogates to do its dirty work of abortion promotion in Kenya,” said Rep. Chris Smith.

“US policy on international constitutional reform is, by law, supposed to be abortion-neutral,” he added. “This new report shows that at a minimum the Obama administration ignored the prohibition, with the end result being a new Kenyan constitution that vastly expands access to abortion in Kenya, courtesy of the US taxpayer.”

    These people are hoodlums. No one is safe as long as they are in power. By the way, the GAO is now the Government Accountability Office, no longer the General Accounting Office.

    Haha Gunther! Excellent remark. Indeed, what a surprise. The entire Obama administration just can't help acting in accordance with their convictions, regardless of what the law says! Haaa, if only conservative presidents and politicians would have the courage to do the same!

    You mean Obama simply gave US taxpayer money away as though it were his? Surely, this story is in error!
