PORTLAND, Oregon, July 25, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) President Barack Obama again invoked his daughters as reasons to support the abortion industry in a campaign stop in Portland, Oregon, on Tuesday.
Mr. Romney wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood, the president told nearly 1,000 donors at the Oregon Convention Center. I think that is a bad idea. Ive got two daughters. I want them to control their own health care choices. Were not going backwards; were going forwards.
The reference echoes a comment he made in 2008 on the campaign trail. Ive got two daughters, 9 years old and 6 years old, he said. If they make a mistake, I dont want them punished with a baby.
In yesterday’s remarks, the president applied the same phrase he used of Planned Parenthood, the nation’s leading abortion provider, to his health care law. The Supreme Court has spoken. We are now implementing it, he said. Thirty million people will have health insurance that didnt have it before. Women will have control of their health care choices. The comment drew a boisterous ovation.
Critics of ObamaCare have long warned the health care law will provide for federal funding of abortions.
His reference to his daughters came just after the president criticized Mitt Romney for not supporting his repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. He had previously cited his daughters’ advice for his decision to support same-sex “marriage.”
President Obama later drew another contrast with Romney, saying, I believe in bottom-up economics. He pledged to continue investing in clean energy and making sure that solar panels and wind turbines are built here in the United States of America.
At several points he punctuated the speech, which highlighted his support of a number of left-of-center positions, with the phrase, We’re not going backwards; we’re going forwards.
During the speech, he said he would be outspent.
The 37-minute speech came before two additional fundraisers: A $5,000-a-plate fundraiser with 200 donors and a $38,500-a-plate fundraiser with 20 donors.
The speech contained a notable reference, as the president cited the Declaration of Independence’s guarantee that we were endowed with certain inalienable rights by our Creator, life and liberty and this pursuit of happiness. He has a history of omitting the words by our Creator in past speeches.
Obama’s comments on abortion begin at 31:38.

Yep, don’t want any icky grandchildren showing up.
He is planning that his daughters will be needing to abort many boy friend’s children.
So when will Malaria have her first abortion?
Yewah- I agree = According to you,you Bum Obummer, their mother should have gone to planned parenthoosd 10 and 7 years ago and your mother should have gone there 64 years ago.
What a disgusting cockroach we have in the White House..he wants his daughters to get abortions..this is what that sick freak thinks about..how slimy can you get!
Yet, he promotes killing the Creator’s children. Lightning should strike this evil man when he is giving one of his Hitlarian diatribes.
He uses them as abortion victims, shooting victims, and welfare mothers. The guy is a real creep as a dad. He's setting them up for self fulfilling prophecies almost once a month these days. Those girls are going to be a mess when they grow up.
Playing into Margaret Sangers’ grand plan.
Only abortion I ever wanted was from stanley ann.
I’m sure daddy will find them the best “alley” abortion doctor that money can buy.
Yes, I truly believe he would kill his own grandchildren.
But abortion is NOT “health care”. This wordsmithing is something else.
This government wants to kill people! And not just in the US but everywhere. When a state or a people say to defund the ‘planned parenthood’ industry, the Feds come in or a judge comes along and negates their will. Abortion is primary, paid for, provided, and promoted. And will be ‘free’. One day it may be mandatory.
Why do taxpayers have to pay for his daughters?
This guy wanted everyone to leave his daughters alone and he uses them for cheap campaign speeches.
He even used Travin Martin as a cheap son ploy
No one cares about your daughters, or their future abortions. Stop acting like an idiot who has to personalize everything. If your daughters grow up to have any class at all, they will disown you.
Killing a baby in the womb is not a health issue. It’s a crime. It’s called murder.
According to you,you Bum Obummer, their mother should have gone to planned parenthoosd 10 and 7 years ago and your mother should have gone there 54 years ago.
And Bill Maher’s Mom..too bad she didn’t take a trip to a Planned Parenthood office when she conceived that pile of garbage
What a disgusting human being.
