Just a lot of Bull…

My mother-in law.

Just take a minute to absorb that lead in.

This is the email I received on Friday…

Subject line: Promoting abortions?  And with our tax dollars?

In a long-expected move, President Barack Obama plans to sign an executive order ending the ban on federal funds for international groups that perform abortions or provide information on the option, officials told The Associated Press on Friday.

This is the email I wrote back. (in a fine rage)

Withdrawing funds from international aid groups that perform abortions (or even talk about them) has been catastrophic to international aid organizations everywhere.  Telling Africans who believe that raping a virgin can cure AIDS to please practice abstinence only simply does not work.  (we’ve proven that these programs don’t work in this country too.)  And in other parts of Africa terrorist groups are carrying out Genocide through rape.  These tactics require that abortion be an option.

Bush made this change during his administration and drastically increased aid to faith-based organizations.  This meant that only Christians (or those that professed to be Christian) would receive aid from the United States.  I don’t think you should have to say you love Jesus to get rice.

I cannot condone the damage that the Bush administration did and I am hopeful that this is only the first of many changes that Obama will make to the way we handle the help we give other countries.

And then I called my husband and told him to prepare for the storm…

His response:

If you waive a red flag in front of a bull, you cannot be surprised when it charges.

Wait, is someone a bull in this scenario?  AM I THE BULL?
