BUSH BETRAYS PRO-LIFE CAUSE AGAIN, BACKS FEDERAL AID TO OVERSEAS ABORTION PROVIDERS
By Pastor Chuck Baldwin
May 1, 2003
Again and again, President G. W. Bush has betrayed the pro-life cause. The latest example is his push for $15 billion in U.S. tax dollars to be sent to Africa for A.I.D.S prevention.
According to British sources, "President George W. Bush dismissed a bid by conservative Christians to restrict his $15 billion foreign initiative to fight A.I.D.S. to only those programs that reject abortion and promote abstinence." In other words, Bush proposes to send federal dollars to those organizations that promote abortion and promiscuity.
The New York Times concurred with the British report by saying, "Ignoring objections from his conservative base, President Bush is to make a Rose Garden speech on Tuesday in support of a $15 billion bill to fight A.I.D.S. internationally that will direct some money to groups that promote abortion."
By choosing to fund pro-abortion groups, Bush is breaking his word to pro-lifers and is proving, once again, that he has no real convictions regarding the life issue.
Furthermore, Bush is a living, breathing example of the old adage, "The man who has a reputation of an early-riser can sleep 'till noon." Bush enjoys the reputation of a pro-life, pro-family president and, therefore, is able to repeatedly endorse pro-abortion and pro-homosexual proposals, and few people even notice.
Bush has done every bit as much to promote the homosexual agenda as Bill Clinton did, maybe more. He has done absolutely nothing of substance to promote the life issue. Just the opposite. He has routinely compromised and capitulated the life issue to the point that it is now laughable when anyone calls this president "pro-life."
Overall, the A.I.D.S. epidemic is behaviorally spread. It is mostly spread through promiscuous homosexual sex. Of course, it is also spread through promiscuous heterosexual sex and through germ- infected intravenous drug needles.
The vast percentage of A.I.D.S. victims are reaping the consequences of their own decadent lifestyles. Sadly, the fallout of this disease also impacts many children, hemophiliacs and others, who have become the innocent victims of other people's sins. No amount of tax dollars will solve that problem. Only a repentant heart and changed lifestyle will cure the escalating spread of A.I.D.S. And, by the way, this remedy requires no federal tax dollars!
Perhaps one day conservative Christians will wake up to the fact that Mr. Bush seldom represents them and will decide to put their combined support and influence behind a principled conservative who will be faithful to the immutable laws upon which this nation was founded. Perhaps.
