The administration claims that the funds are being withheld because "the fund indirectly supports Chinese government programs that force women to have abortions."1 Although this explanation is popular with Bush's conservative base, it is wholly unsupported by the facts.</blockquote> So much for Dubbyuh's all talk-no walk compassionate conservatism. He would rather appease the regligious right-wingnuts that are a large part of his base than support programs which actually change the draconian population control policies in China to more humane approaches. But, what does it matter...? The Chinese aren't gonna be voting for him anyways.
