Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Coalition, based in Washington, D.C., states,
"Recently, President Obama cut 19 million dollars and ended a program sponsored by the Catholic Church that helped the victims of the sex trafficking industry.
"The reason he gave for doing this. The program did not provide abortion counseling or referrals.
"So, the President of the United States has put protecting abortion 'rights' above protecting the victims of sex trafficking. This is a national disgrace and reveals the radical and pro-abortion views of Mr. Obama and his Administration.
"It also shows the President's complete disregard for ensuring human rights and justice for all.
"This event on January 23, is a kick-off to a national campaign called, 'Barack Obama. The Abortion President.' During this election year, we intend to show America how the President has embraced an extremist abortion position that is out of step with mainstream voters."
