Global ObamaCare & the "Good Club" Billionaires; Hillary Clinton Announced That the Obama Administration Plans to Spend $63 Billion on "Family Planning and Reproductive Health Programs Worldwide"-Abortion


Jasper, William F., The New American


During the second week of January, while the White House and Congress were locked in combat over major issues in the proposed nationalized healthcare legislation--abortion coverage, rationing, end-of-life counseling, costs--the administration declared its intention to push forward with a $63 billion global ObamaCare plan.

With little media fanfare or coverage, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced on January 8 that the Obama administration had recently succeeded in supplying "more than $648 million in foreign assistance to family planning and reproductive health programs worldwide." And, said she, another $63 billion is on the way, courtesy of Obama's Global Health Initiative (GHI).

Secretary Clinton's remarks came at a State Department celebration of the "15th Anniversary of the International Conference on Population and Development" (ICPD), the 1994 United Nations summit in Cairo, where abortion policies were the major flashpoint. Addressing supporters in the State Department's Benjamin Franklin Room, Secretary Clinton proclaimed:

  This year, the United States renewed funding of reproductive
  healthcare through the United Nations Population Fund, and more
  funding is on the way. The U.S. Congress recently appropriated more
  than $648 million in foreign assistance to family planning and
  reproductive health programs worldwide. That's the largest allocation
  in more than a decade. ...

  In addition to new funding, we've launched a new program that will be
  the centerpiece of our foreign policy, the Global Health Initiative,
  which commits us to spending $63 billion over six years to improve
  global health.

Clinton, who has always been a staunch supporter of the right to abortion, played a key emissary role at that Cairo ICPD summit, as First Lady of the Clinton White House. "The year 2015 is the target year," Secretary Clinton said in her January 8 remarks. "Remember what was expected of us. All governments will make access to reproductive healthcare and family planning services a basic right."

Clinton is revising history to suit her purposes. During the wrangling over text at Cairo, "reproductive health" and other similar code words were employed in attempts to camouflage policies that promoted abortion. However, in response to resolute opposition from representatives of Catholic and Muslim countries and the Vatican, the final Cairo document, known as the Cairo Program of Action, specifically denied support for abortion. "The Cairo document," notes Samantha Singsen of Lifenews.com, "explicitly states in two places that abortion should in no case 'be promoted as a method of family planning."' Even so, many countries were so unnerved by the persistent attempts of militant feminists to insert furtive pro-abortion language into the Cairo texts that they adopted formal reservations explicitly ensuring their understanding that references to "reproductive" rights and health did not include support for abortion. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama clearly intend to undo those Cairo restrictions, which Bill and Hillary Clinton, in order to conclude an agreement, grudgingly acceded to in 1994.

During congressional hearings in April of 2009, Secretary Clinton was specifically pinned down on this issue by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.Y.), who wanted to know if the phrases "reproductive health," "reproductive services," and "reproductive rights" include abortion. Secretary Clinton responded: "We [the Obama administration] happen to think that family planning is an important part of women's health and reproductive health includes access to abortion that I believe should be safe, legal and rare."*

The "safe, legal, and rare" statement is a verbatim response that Clinton has used many times over the years, whenever she is forced to acknowledge the reality of "reproductive" policies.

Abortion, of course, is never safe for the aborted baby, whose life is ended, and the policies Clinton has championed for many years--as First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of State--certainly have not made abortion rare. …
