Reports confirm Obama used tax $$ to lobby for abortion in Kenya
Cross posted at NY Post.....
WASHINGTON — A government watchdog has revealed that the Obama administration gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to a group that lobbied to put pro-abortion language in Kenya’s new constitution, despite US law prohibiting funding to advocate either side of the abortion issue overseas.
The report by the Government Accountability Office validated concerns raised by Capitol Hill Republicans about the US-funded International Development Law Organization working to loosen abortion laws in Kenya.
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, called the US-financed lobbying in Kenya “indefensible.”
