Obama's policy criticised by Church

Vatican officials have condemned President Barack Obama's move to restore US funding for family planning clinics abroad that give advice on or carry out abortions.

One official warned against the "arrogance" of those in power who think they can decide between life and death, while another official said it dealt a blow to groups fighting against "the slaughter of the innocents".

The White House said the move aligns the US with other nations fighting poverty and promoting health care.
