Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — In a new interview, the director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships contends the Obama administration sis still working on a plan to reduce abortions. In the 13 months since Barack Obama became president, he’s promoted abortion and the office has produced nothing.
The faith office last held a meeting in May to discuss how to reduce abortions and promote adoption, and that meeting produced significant skepticism from pro-life advocates that the Obama administration was serious about reducing abortions.
In fact, one top Obama staffer admitted that the goal of the office and its eventual plan is not to reduce abortions but to reduced the “need” for them.
In an exclusive interview with CBN News lead correspondent David Brody, Joshua DuBois, the director of the office, sought to reassure pro-life advocates that a plan is forthcoming.
“It’s very much a priority of the President to find common ground on this difficult issue,” DuBois told Brody.
He said his office, “along with the Domestic Policy Council in which we sit and The White House council on Women and Girls met with a range of organizations are now pulling together a lot of information to present to the President so that he can eventually talk about where the administration will go in this important area so that’s still very much on the table.”
