Memo to WH Faith Director: This IS Called Bearing False Witness

Bluntly, this guy is lying just like Obama did when he told Papa Benedetto he would work to reduce abortions. Actions speak louder than words. & as this article points out the Obama administration is doing more & more to increase the number of abortions, not reduce them.
A recent statement by Obama proves that he is moving ahead to do more to make abortion available & anything but rare. I am refering to his comments about recess appointment. Although he didn't say he would specificly do it for Dawn Johnsen, it is likely that she is 1 of those he has in mind. (DAWN JOHNSEN MAY RECEIVE RECESS APPOINTMENT, PERHAPS SUPREME COURT SEAT) I have no problem with him doing that Like Bush did. But I find it interesting that despite the (until recently) super majority of Dems (60) he is still having problems with apointments. All he needed was a majority vote. & with 60 Dems they were fillibuster proof as well. If he can't get his own party to back him, they must be pretty radical, even for the Dems.
Just how radical is Dawn Johnsen? During her time as legal director for the pro-abortion group NARAL, Johnsen argued in a brief to the U.S. Supreme Court that denying a pregnant woman the right to demand unrestricted abortion is to subject her to slavery, which was outlawed by the Thirteenth Amendment after the Civil War. Yup she sees pregnancy as a form of slavery & any ban on abortion turns women into "fetal containers."
This is who Obama wants to appoint as head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel. Part of her job would be to craft legal strategies. & given the above, you can see exactly what type they would be & what agenda they would promote.
Given Obama's administration track record, I highly doubt we will see any serious attempts to reduce the number of or need for abortions.

Washington, DC ( -- In a new interview, the director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships contends the Obama administration sis still working on a plan to reduce abortions. In the 13 months since Barack Obama became president, he's promoted abortion and the office has produced nothing.
The faith office last held a meeting in May to discuss how to reduce abortions and promote adoption, and that meeting produced significant skepticism from pro-life advocates that the Obama administration was serious about reducing abortions.
In fact, one top Obama staffer admitted that the goal of the office and its eventual plan is not to reduce abortions but to reduced the "need" for them.
In an exclusive interview with CBN News lead correspondent David Brody, Joshua DuBois, the director of the office, sought to reassure pro-life advocates that a plan is forthcoming.
“It’s very much a priority of the President to find common ground on this difficult issue," DuBois told Brody.
He said his office, "along with the Domestic Policy Council in which we sit and The White House council on Women and Girls met with a range of organizations are now pulling together a lot of information to present to the President so that he can eventually talk about where the administration will go in this important area so that’s still very much on the table."
"Again, where one of the things where unfortunately the facts didn't get in the way of a theory but we're going to keep doing our work," DuBois told CBN's Brody.
Asked to give a timeframe on when a plan on how to reduce abortions would be produced, DuBois offered no answer other than to say it wouldn't be a lengthy effort.
"It’s certainly not a multi-year effort. It’s something that we're looking at much sooner than that," he said.
DuBois also disputed a recent Washington Post article quoting some religious officials, including some who support Obama, as questioning whether the Obama version of the faith office is just for show.
"We're wondering if religiously driven voices really have a voice at the table," said David Gushee, an evangelical ethicist, told the Post. He wonders whether "gatekeepers around the president are thinking he has more important constituencies to pay attention to."
Although the Obama administration has proven it know how to give a good sales pitch on reducing abortions, Obama's actions present an entirely different picture.
From sending taxpayer funds to groups to promote and perform abortions overseas and pledging to overturn conscience clause protections for pro-life medical professionals to forcing taxpayers to pay for embryonic stem cell research and stacking his staff with abortion advocates, Obama's pro-abortion record seems clear to most.
His strong support for a Senate health care bill that funded potentially hundreds of thousands of abortions sealed the deal on his pro-abortion record and reputation for most pro-life Americans.
