Obama's good work: lifting the ban on abortion funds to foreign family planning agencies

  1. Yes! This was a little known, little discussed ban but it had a huge impact. To think, with all that's going on in the world, lifting this ban was one of the first things Barack did. Can this really, finally be happening? A government we can be proud of?
