(May 12, 2010) — Kenya, an East African country identified by Minister James Orengo as Barack Hussein Obama’s birthplace, has been encouraged by Obama to “overturn its historic prohibition on abortions.”

Kenya has been overwhelmingly against abortion.  However, the Obama regime has been heavily involved in attempting to convince President Kibaki and Prime Minister Odinga to adopt a new constitution which would allow abortion to be legalized.  On April 1, 2010, after the Kenyan Parliament passed the proposed constitution, a press release from the White House followed which said, “”We are encouraged by the strong statements made by President Kibaki and Prime Minister Odinga in support of the draft.”

According to LifeNews, “While pro-life groups have been working directly with local pro-life advocates in Kenya to urge the nation’s residents to reject the proposed constitution when it comes up for a vote, the Obama administration is working for its adoption.”  This reportedly includes the U.S. Ambassador to Kenya, Michael Ranneberger.  Church leaders in Kenya are against the new constitution because of its abortion language and what it sees as special treatment of Muslims.  One church leader who had held discussions with Parliament members was quoted as having said, “The Church is unable to compromise at all on the issue of life, the right to life, nor accept the provision that does not ensure the religious equality and equity, as in the concerns about the Kadhi courts.”

Laws against abortion in Kenya date back to 1897.

According to an article dated May 8, 2010, the new constitution is “the biggest overhaul of the nation’s laws since independence,” which Kenya gained from Great Britain in December 1963.

Three members of the U.S. Congress are calling for a probe into the Obama regime’s plan to funding  the promotion of the revised Kenyan constitution.  Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ), Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), and Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) claim that financial support may violate the Siljander Amendment, which states that “No foreign assistance funds may be used to lobby for or against abortion.”

Rep. Smith has stated that “the U.S. State Department has pledged to spend $2 million to build support for the proposed constitution.”

Some members of the Kenyan Parliament do not trust the “Committee of Experts” charged with educating the public on the new constitution prior to the referendum in July because of “the endorsement of the proposed constitution by some foreign countries, which were also funding the enactment of a new laws under the Agenda Four reforms,” which  in their view, includes the United States.

  1. The ahhhhhhhhhh…progressives have reached and passsed the point of no return.
    They will stop at nothing to ensure they stay in power.
    I saw it coming…… I see it now…….we are there.
    I.E. Soros has placed his bet and expects/demands his cohorts to win it all at any cost.

  2. What is the religious equality issue and what are the Kadhi courts?
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: The linked articles didn’t explain much, except that the Kadhi courts are evidently Muslim-favoring and might tip the justice system in favor of Muslims in the country, as Raila Odinga had promised he would do when he ran for President of Kenya in 2007.

  3. I guess he’s not content ‘ruling’ over just the USA. He thinks he’s king of the world too. I wish these other countries would tell him to “Go Pound Sand!”
    Mrs. Rondeau replies: And I am especially hoping that Kenya, “the place of Obama’s birth,” does so by rejecting the new constitution!

  4. I wonder what Ambassador to Kenya Michael Ranneberger knows about the liar-in-chief’s background there in Kenya. The misprision felony laws (if any enforcement body of government will act) will be a sweeping action to the continued cover up.

    Our greatest concern as citizens at this point is finding non-compromised authority to exercise the rule of law. Remember the scene in Planet of the Apes when Charlton Heston couldn’t speak and realized he was in an upside down world insane with reversals of the normal. That impact was shown on his face as “is this for real”? Bizarre, confusing, trapped, and desperate for answers. This is similar to the many witnessing the take down of America. Words fail to describe the sense of bewilderment as to why our government leadership cannot and will not move swiftly on the fraudulent occupying of the White House. Are they all “kool aid” drinkers, intoxicated with personal power trips and bribes to maintain the corruption status quo?

  5. Just more evidence of the dictator of the world and his trial balloon efforts of radicalizing his country of birth first before doing the same thing here!!

  6. This planned illegal action by Obama is in perfect concert with his rescission of the Mexico City Policy, re-establishing USAID funding for abortions in Mexico, just 2 days after his inauguration.

    Yet Obama proclaims he is not an ideologue? Yeah, right!

  7. Can’t he either mind his own business or just move to Kenya and take that country over?

    And we are paying for their new constitution–2 million dollars! This is unacceptable.
