Obama endorses Planned Parenthood: ‘you’ll never stop fighting for choice and neither will I’

WASHINGTON, March 29, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In an unusually candid video addressed to Planned Parenthood, President Obama assured the billion-dollar abortion organization of his continued support and touted his record blocking efforts to defund the group by pro-life “professional politicians.”

“For you and for most Americans, protecting women’s health is a mission that stands above politics,” said the president in a video posted to Youtube by the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. “Yet in the past year you’ve had politicians who want to deny millions of women the care they rely on, and inject themselves into decisions that are best made between a woman and her doctor.”

The affirmation comes amidst an onslaught of bad publicity for the abortion giant in recent months: The group is now under federal investigation after reports alleged that it has engaged in systematic Medicaid fraud, abused other federal funds, and routinely evaded state abortion laws.

Planned Parenthood’s defensive posture became even clearer last December when prominent breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen for the Cure cut funding to the group because of the investigation, as well as the fact that Planned Parenthood clinics do not provide direct breast cancer services such as mammograms. After Planned Parenthood and its allies excoriated Komen for the decision, the charity was forced to apologize, but left it unclear whether the grants would resume.

Obama extolled Planned Parenthood’s “fight” for women in the video, suggesting that the group helped women receive “mammograms,” alongside praise for its efforts providing affordable contraception.

“So when some professional politicians casually say that they’ll ‘get rid of Planned Parenthood,’ don’t forget what they’re really talking about: eliminating the funding for preventive care that millions of women rely on and leaving them to fend for themselves,” said Obama.

Kristan Hawkins, head of Students for Life of America, called it “outrageous” that Obama would repeat the claim that Planned Parenthood performs mammograms, after extensive coverage pointing out that the abortion organization does not provide the service.

“Somehow the White House has missed the memo that PLANNED PARENTHOOD DOESN’T PROVIDE MAMMOGRAMS. How could they have missed that?” wrote Hawkins.

“And why is Planned Parenthood posting videos that say as much, when they have already been caught in the lie?”

The president also referred to last year’s budget negotiation stalemate, in which Obama and House GOP leader John Boehner came to personal loggerheads over the bill’s Planned Parenthood defunding - the final issue Obama cited in his refusal to sign the bill hours before government shutdown.

When “Republicans in Congress threatened to shut down the government” over the measure, “I had a simple answer: no,” Obama said in the video.

The president concluded: “I know that Planned Parenthood will continue providing care no matter what. I know you’ll never stop fighting to protect the health care and the choices that America’s women deserve.

“And as long as I have the privilege of being your president, neither will I.”

His entire agenda is to get four more years in that big cushy bed.

This is a fundraiser, that's all. Planned Parenthood is his biggest sponsor.

“leaving them to fend for themselves,”

Who’s fending for the murdered babies?

Zero's in bed with Planned Parenthood.

The problem with Republicans, is that so is Mitt Romney.

In the previous ('07-'08 campaign), Mitt Romney repeatedly assured on the campaign trail that "everything" he acted upon re: life & death (abortion) matters during his Bay State gubernatorial years was "pro-life."

As governor, Romney could have exercised veto power to portions of Commonwealth Care.

Did Romney exercise this power? (Yes, he vetoed Sections 5, 27, 29, 47, 112, 113, 134 & 137).

What prominent section dealing with Planned Parenthood as part of the "payment policy advisory board" did Romney choose NOT to veto? (Section 3...That section mandates that one member of MassHealth Payment Policy Board must be appointed by Planned Parenthood League of MA).

For more details, see chapter 58 of the Acts of 2006, section 3.

Mitt said he had a "pro-life conversion" November of 2004. But was just as pro-abortion & pro-Planned Parenthood in 2006 as Obama was!

Besides, Mitt got a "head start" on supporting Planned Parenthood...he was attending a 1994 fund-raiser hosted by Planned Parenthood -- all while his wife, Ann, cut them a check.

Just because his parents abandoned him is no reason he should go through life considering children to be a punishment...

He won’t stop fighting for choice, even when he’s in hell? Think he’ll be too busy dealing with other things.

I am always amazed that most blacks support the politicians and organizations that want to put an abortion “clinic” on every corner in their neighborhoods.

If these people knew the racial views of Planned Parenthood's founder, they'd be tearing the places down.
