Orwellian title of the day

It doesn’t get much more dishonest than this:

“Reducing the Need for Abortions Initiative.”

Steven Ertelt reports on the abortion bailout bill disguised as “pro-life” legislation:

Rep. Rosa DeLauro, a Connecticut Democrat who is a former NARAL staffer, and Rep. Tim Ryan, an Ohio Democrat whom Democrats for Life of America recently kicked off its board, are behind the bill.

The legislation is nothing new as Ryan and DeLauro took a Democrats for Life initiative and changed it so much that it sent millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business.

The bill is strong on rhetoric, but its particulars are so bad that Rep. Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican who heads the pro-life caucus of lawmakers in the House, told the Copely News Service in 2006 that the measure would “lead to more abortions, not less” and said pro-life lawmakers won’t support it.

He found it hypocritical that federal funds would go to abortion centers where “in one room, they talk contraception, and in the other room, they kill your baby.”

Rep. James Oberstar, a Minnesota Democrat who is the co-chairman of the House Pro-Life Caucus and the kind of moderate lawmaker the measure is designed to appeal to, wouldn’t support it either.

Ryan also told Copely at the time that he asked several major pro-life groups to join him in supporting the bill, but none would take the bait because of the money dedicated to Planned Parenthood.

The bill appears to be designed to provide abortion advocates and President Barack Obama cover for his extensive pro-abortion record.
