Funny thing about leftist agenda promoters, they’re never content to localize their destruction, so they force it onto the rest of the world.  The Obama administration exports the abortion industry to unenlightened foreign countries to perpetuate the myth of beneficent progressivism. It also doesn’t hurt that expanding coverage for abortions means big bucks for any country willing to legalize it.

By paying visits to Kenya in the past year, Secretary of State Clinton and Vice President Joe Biden pressured the pro-life country into promoting a constitution which includes a broader interpretation of abortion rights. On August 4th Kenya adopted the new constitution wherein a clause was added allowing for an abortion if a woman’s “health” was in question.

Before the vote, Christian churches in Kenya came out against the abortion provision. In response, the coalition government of President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga both lobbied for a “yes” vote. Some people believed the government used voter intimidation tactics.

“It wouldn’t surprise me that there was voting irregularity, voting fraud,” Smith [Marie Smith of the Parliamentary Network for Critical Issues] told LSN. She said that, after the “no” campaign had shown its strength, the government went out of its way to set up polling sites in prisons…She  also said she was sure people felt intimidated. 15,000 peace-keeping troops, she said, had been sent to the Rift Valley, where the “no” campaign was very strong.

This sounds an awful lot like finding a way to give prisoners the right to vote in the U.S.; trying to streamline amnesty to illegal aliens without going to the Congress; and having ACORN employees fraudulently register thousands of voters in order to increase Democrat voter rolls.

In an editorial in Daily Nation entitled“Only Kenyans should decide their law,” the author tells foreigners to butt out of their business.

…it is the underlying concept of a foreign lobby directly influencing the outcome of a poll in a sovereign state that is most troubling, if not downright insulting.

Note that the author is not pointing to Clinton and Biden, instead he refers to the right-wing antagonist, the American Center for Law and Justice, as pumping tens of thousands of dollars into the “No” campaign. It’s so typical of the Left not to see the beam in its own eye.

Actually, the U.S. paid off Kenyan organizations through USAID to promote the new constitution. Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), Ranking Member of the Africa and Global Health Subcommittee, weighed in on the referendum in July:

“The Obama Administration should not be spending $23 million in American tax dollars on the specific “Yes” campaign, pushing a determined outcome on the proposed constitution in Kenya,” Smith said.

By funneling funds to Kenya, Obama has paid to play.
