now or later

President Obama will reverse an order to ban federal funds for foreign groups that provide abortion. Or, to put it positively, Obama will allow federal money to go to foreign groups that provide abortion.

If we put aside for a moment the sanctity of human life, the soul of the aborted baby, and the right to a physical life here on earth that no government can either bestow or revoke, I think this makes a lot of sense.

It’s an Us vs. Them world.  Obama is the leader of Us, and so it’s in his, and our, best interest to limit the number of future combatants that are being born.  The more of Them we can get rid of now, the fewer the foreign problems 20 years down the road.  In software development, the cost to fix a late stage bug is many, many times more than the cost to fix a bug discovered early in the process.  Similarly, this executive order seems an exceptional, frugal, and efficient use of funds.

    Dear, you’re rubbing off on me!
