Behind Closed Doors: President Signs Phony Order On Abortion

Congressman John Boehner (R-West Chester) issued the following statement today on President Obama's decision to sign an Executive Order on the federal funding of elective abortion:

"Everyone knows this Executive Order will have no effect whatsoever on taxpayer funding of abortion. Even Democratic leaders have acknowledged that. It is a transparent attempt to provide political cover to Washington Democrats who betrayed their constituents by voting to allow taxpayer-funded abortion in the United States for the first time in 30 years.

"It is telling that President Obama is signing this Executive Order behind closed doors, unwilling to face questions from reporters or the public. He clearly hopes to sweep this issue under the rug. But the American people will take notice, and they will not forget."
