President Obama told Israel to allow humanitarian and reconstruction aid to enter the country and this is how Israel responds?
Update: Associated Press is reporting that Israel took the boat, cargo, and passengers to Israel for searching and plan on releasing the people to immigration. How can Israel capture people in international waters and search them? Where is the enforcement of international maritime law?

Abortion is Not Health Care
July 1, 2009
I need you to act now to stop the biggest attempt to force taxpayer funded abortion on-demand on the American people.
All Pro-Life Americans must act today to save the lives of thousands of unborn boys and girls who will fall prey to abortions courtesy of our pro-abortion Congress and President. Lives that will be lost using your very own hard-earned tax dollars.
President Obama has clearly stated that he supports taxpayer-funded abortions as part of his health care reform. In his speech to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund in July of 2008, President Obama stated that in his mind "reproductive care is essential care, basic care, so it is at the center, the heart of the [health care] plan that I propose." When asked for clarification later, an Obama spokesman said that “reproductive care included abortion."
In the current House health care reform bill, Nancy Pelosi and her pro-abortion friends have left the door open for Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and her unelected pro-abortion bureaucrats to define abortion as part of “reproductive care,” just as Hillary Clinton has already done at the State Department. We cannot allow pro-abortion legislators to leave this door open.
