WASHINGTON, Jan 22, 2001 ( – President George Bush is already beginning to remake Clinton’s America. Only two days after his inauguration, a renewed emphasis on Christianity, life and family seems to be emerging from the holder of the most powerful office in the world. During his inauguration speech Bush spoke of links between religious-based charities and government and spoke of the duty “to affirm the dignity of our lives and every life.” Already the media is reporting that Bush is within days of issuing an executive order reinstating the US policy not to fund organizations which commit and lobby for abortions overseas. When harassed by reporters as to whether he would allow a reversal of the Roe v Wade decision he replied, “As you know, I campaigned as a pro-life candidate.”

Rather than a rousing speech to abortion advocates as was his predecessor’s custom, on this anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision, President Bush sent a pro-life message to the assembled pro-lifers through outspokenly pro-life Rep. Chris Smith. One of his first executive orders was to establish a national day of prayer. Furthermore, is reporting that pornographers in the US are quaking in their boots, setting up voluntary restrictions in anticipation of a crackdown on their illicit trade by the Bush Administration.
