Obama spending $23M in Kenya for constitution

“US tax dollar monies are flying out the door to pro-abortion groups committed to overturning pro-life laws in Kenya,” Republican Representative Chris Smith charged on Friday.

A USAid listing provided to Congressman Smith shows that US$2.9 million is being given to Development Alternatives for “activities related to the constitutional support process.”
